this ought to stir the fundamentalist's pot

"If the model proposed by Darwin is not considered sufficient, one should search for another one," Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Bologna, wrote in the Jan. 16-17 edition of the paper, L'Osservatore Romano.

"But it is not correct from amethodological point of view to stray from the field of science while pretending to do science," he wrote. "It only creates confusion between the scientific plane and those that are philosophical or religious."

any guesses where this quote came from? it came from the vatican newspaper, as reported by International Times Herald.

i imagine that will chap some hides in the fundie ranks.

I'm not sure anything the pope has to say is of the least interest to fundamentalist Christians. Catholicism is barely a step above paganism in the eyes of some Christian churches. Something about not using the bible as the ultimate source, worshipping idols (praying in front of statues), and heaven forbid, praying to the Virgin Mother. Which, as a former Catholic, isn't how I was brought up to understand any of that at all.
