Evolution/creation


#1

Does the church have a position on creation/evolution. Personally, i don’t really care which is right, it makes no differance to me, but i just was wondering:hmmm:


#2

The Church’s position is that God could have used evolution as a tool with which to create the world. So long as the evolutionary theory one adheres to does not discount the necessity of the Creator, it is in communion with the Catholic perspective. One does not have to adhere to any evolutionary theory, however.

Hi Jimbob,

I would add that the Church has declared that our spiritual soul cannot have evolved.

Verbum
