THE Vatican has issued a stout defence of Charles Darwin, voicing strong criticism of Christian fundamentalists who reject his theory of evolution and interpret the biblical account of creation literally.
Cardinal Paul Poupard, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture, said the Genesis description of how God created the universe and Darwin’s theory of evolution were “perfectly compatible” if the Bible were read correctly.
Well, that’s gonna put some fruitcakes on the back foot; Creationism debunked by the titular head of God’s authority on Earth. Let’s wait for the fundaMENTALists to denounce the Pope as being a cat’s-paw of the infidels who are all trying to usurp the rights of ignorant people to propagate their ignorance…
…and could someone near the Church of FSM offices ask them to turn the music down a little bit? 🙂
