  • me personally, i believe in Creator lead Evolution. it doesnt have to be a God vs Science thing. why cant God be in charge of the things scientists are discovering? then again i dont believe that in Genesis the 6 days of creation are to be taken as literally six 24 hour days...if you believe that it kinda makes believing in evolution difficult.

  • The Catholic Church teach teaches the universe was specially created out of nothing by God. There is no official position on whether the stars, nebulae, and planets or whether plants and animals here on earth were all created is a single special creation or created whether they developed over time . However, it says that, if they did develop, then they did so under the impetus and guidance of God, and their ultimate creation must be ascribed to him. The CC allows for the possibility that our human bodies developed from previous biological forms, under God’s guidance, but insists on the special creation of our souls. Our souls did not evolve, and are not inherited from our parents, as our bodies are.

    While the Church permits belief in either special creation or developmental creation on certain questions, it in no circumstances permits belief in atheistic evolution.

  • I don't really understand the conflict between religion and evolution because God created us, and the world, through evolution. I don't see any problem in hypothesizing that humans and lemurs or monkeys or whatever have the same ancestor but broke off millions of years ago as a superior species. The first to break off were the first man & woman (Adam & Eve), and were given the first eternal souls.
    Really, there is no way to know, until we die and ask God ourselves.
