heh, Christians against Creationism!

So, many of you might remember my post about the Anglican church speaking out against Intelligent Design (if you don't, the head of that church called it crock, basically). Now we can add Catholicism to the list of reputable Christian denominations that think Intelligent Design is full of it!

Creationism dismissed as 'a kind of paganism' by Vatican's astronomer

BELIEVING that God created the universe in six days is a form of superstitious paganism, the Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno claimed yesterday.

Brother Consolmagno, who works in a Vatican observatory in Arizona and as curator of the Vatican meteorite collection in Italy, said a "destructive myth" had developed in modern society that religion and science were competing ideologies.


This amuses me on just so many levels.
