Darwin's theory stands against Christianity!

The Vatican has admitted that Darwin's theory of evolution should not have been dismissed & claimed it is compatible with the Christianity.

Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi from Pontifical Council for Culture, said while the Church had been aggressive to Darwin's theory in the past, the idea of evolution could be traced to St Augustine & St Thomas Aquinas.

Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti, Professor of Theology at the Pontifical Santa Croce University, added that 4th century theologian St Augustine had never heard the term “evolution”. But he knew that big fish eat smaller fish & forms of life had been transformed slowly over time. In the Middle Ages, Aquinas made similar observations.

Darwin's theories had never been officially condemned by the Church, pointing to comments more than fifty years ago, when Pope Pius XII took attempt to describe the evolution in Darwin’s theory as a valid scientific approach to the human development.

Professor Marc Leclerc –teacher of natural philosophy at the Gregorian University, argues that too many of Darwin's opponents, primarily Creationists, mistakenly claim his theories are totally incompatible with a religious vision of reality.

Prominent scientists & leading religious figures urges to put an end to the fighting over Darwin's legacy. They argued that disbelievers are turning people away from evolution by using it to attack Christianity while they also urge believers in creationism to acknowledge the overwhelming body of evidence that now exists to support Darwin's theory.

The Church of England is seeking to bring the Darwin’s theory back into the fold with a page on its website paying honor to his "forgotten" work in his local parish, showing science & Christianity need not to be opponent.
