Origins – the Pope’s View

The Pope recently made two comments, as reported in the Independent newspaper – “The Big Bang, which today we hold to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the intervention of the Divine Creator but, rather, requires it” and “Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.” I think I agree with these comments because they form a bridge between the Biblical account of origins, and the evidence emerging as our scientists probe ever deeper into what exists around us. However, the problem that the secular evolutionists, philosophers, astronomers and physicists have is that they can’t explain where matter, the “stuff” that forms stars, planets, worms, etc., came from in the first place. If you Google this question, you will find many different theories, but that is all they are. Theories. So sad that today our scientists will stay awake at night thinking of ways around actually accepting that there is a Divine Creator. The God I know is infinitely powerful and capable, but He also knows me personally. Truly amazing!
