Vatican affirms scientific value of evolution |

Vatican affirms scientific value of evolution | "A professor at a Vatican-sponsored university expressed dismay Tuesday that some Christian groups reject the theory of evolution —- implicitly criticizing the literal interpretation of the Bible.

Further emphasizing the official Catholic stance, a Vatican official restated the Church position that evolution is not incompatible with faith.

Both men spoke at a news conference ahead of a March event aimed at fostering dialogue between religion and science, and appraising evolution 150 years after Charles Darwin’s landmark “On the Origin of Species.”"
