RE: Pope says evolution is true
As a former Catholic, I'm not surprised this Pope is saying shit that's making people uncomfortable. He's a Jesuit, so I'm not agape with shock. The Holy See actually rejects intelligent design, but supports natural selection. Pius XII did support it somewhat in Humani Generis, but rejected polygenism and said they require keeping their god in it.

It almost seems as though they don't want to be seen as they were in the past but still aren't ready to admit a lot.

RE: Pope says evolution is true
Isn't this old news? Didn't Pius XII say the same thing in the 50s? What I know for sure is that I only went to Catholic school and I learned evolution. That had to be around 25 years ago.
Edit: I'm once again guilty of not reading the whole thread....
