Cardinal Error

January 2006
Wilson Quarterly;Winter2006, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p77
A reprint of the article The Design of Evolution, by Stephen M. Barr published in the October 2005 issue of First Things is presented. Barr argued that the stand of Cardinal Christoph Schönborn on neo-Darwinism contradicts the Catholic Church's position on evolution. Barr further argued that in scientific discourse, random does not mean uncaused, unplanned or inexplicable. The International Theological Commission has recognized the Church's stand in its 2004 report.
