Evolution and Creationism

The Christian Post reported:

Catholics can believe in evolution just as long as God's involvement is acknowledged, according to some top Catholic leaders.

Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick, told reporters at the National Press Club last week a contemporary Catholic "need not say that creationism is the only answer -- that in six days or seven days, God made the world," according to the Associated Press.

Creationism is the literal, biblical account of God creating man and the universe in six days.

McCarrick said this concept of "theistic evolution" agreeing with Darwin's evolutionary theory, given that one accepts God's guidance in the process -- was the view of the late Pope John Paul II.


Two thumbs up to Cardinal McCarrick. I don't see any conflict between evolution and creationism in his explanation.
