Pope prepares to embrace theory of intelligent design

Hey, it looks like the Pope has remembered his statistics classes and realizes that there is no way in the universe that humans, or any life, happened by accident. Oh yeah, maybe he read his Bible too. I wonder when the biologist are going to join the rest of the scientific community on this issue?

Philosophers, scientists and other intellectuals close to Pope Benedict will gather at his summer palace outside Rome this week for intensive discussions that could herald a fundamental shift in the Vatican’s view of evolution.
There have been growing signs the Pope is considering aligning his church more closely with the theory of “intelligent design” taught in some US states. Advocates of the theory argue that some features of the universe and nature are so complex that they must have been designed by a higher intelligence. Critics say it is a disguise for creationism.

    Did I miss something extremely important? Is the Pope just now figuring out that evolution is a lie? Have the previous Popes been against the idea that God created everything? I just dont get it.

    It always seemed odd to me that the Pope actually didn’t disagree with evolution. The argument that in the “soul” we are made in the image of God, just not necessarily in the body.
    Sounds strange, I know.
