Quote of the day

"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. Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve."

Pope Francis once again shows his disdain for Catholic conservatives by turning his back on classic creationism and intelligent design and explicitly accepting the Big Bang and evolution. He might be a bit behind the times, but still it's certainly a step in the right direction.
