Vatican, apologetics ministry at odds on evolution

Post  lisa1880 on Fri 27 Feb 2009, 6:51 pm

The Vatican will be discussing the topic of evolution and faith in a conference coming up in March.

Vatican officials have stated that belief in God and evolution does not conflict with church teachings because one is a faith issue and the other a scientific issue. Yet officials have agreed to also include the topic of intelligent design -- but they say they will address ID a faith issue that is separate from science.

Dr. Terry Mortenson is with Answers in Genesis, an apologetics ministry that operates the Creation Museum in northern Kentucky. He says to believe in both evolution and the Bible is inconsistent. Mortenson points to the first 11 chapters of Genesis -- specifically Genesis, Chapter 1.

"The Bible says the earth was created before the sun, moon, and stars -- contrary to the big-bang theory. The Bible says that plants were created before sea creatures -- contrary to…evolutionary theory," Mortenson points out."And then the Bible says that there was no death before Adam's sin -- no animal death, no human death. But evolution says there were hundreds of millions of years of death in the physical world. So you have to ignore the details of the Bible to accept evolution."

But what about the scientific evidence? Is there evidence that supports creationism?

"Oh, there is an enormous amount of scientific evidence that supports that God created separate kinds of plants and animals," Mortenson replies. "The fossil record supports that, what we know about natural selection and mutation supports that -- and there's an enormous, massive amount of evidence in the geological record for Noah's flood."

According to ministry spokesman, the Creation Museum has some of this evidence on display.

How can vatican say evolution is different matter from faith? It is absurd and ridiculous and vatican is a big disgrace to Christianity trying to accommodate everything evil. Evolution is a lie and all those who believe in evolution deny God and His power to create. I feel sorry for vatican and its efforts to accommodate evolutionists.

Totally irresponsible remark from vatican as ever. Vatican should be pronounced as cult by the WCC (World Church Council). It is a disgrace to Christianity.

I agree with you all that this is trying to accommodate science and it is a shameful act. How can be science different from faith? If evolution is correct then why do they read Genesis? Roman Catholics are really amazing! Let us see what discourse they give in March. That would be really interesting to study and comment on.
