Clergy and evolution
Hat tip to Alison Thompson, sister of Dr. Andy for passing along the following article about Christian clergy being enlisted in the battle for evolution
Warren Eschbach, a retired Church of the Brethren pastor and professor at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania helped sponsor a letter signed by more than 10,000 other clergy.This seems like a great idea to me, dispelling the idea that evolution is somehow incompatable with Christianity.
"We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests," they wrote.
Catholic experts have also joined the movement.
"The intelligent design movement belittles God. It makes God a designer, an engineer," said Vatican Observatory Director George Coyne, an astrophysicist who is also ordained. "The God of religious faith is a god of love. He did not design me."
Wonder what my anonymous commentor will think?
