Turns out there's another topic that leadeth unto damnation brewing over at CAEI. Sigh. It's beginning to look like there isn't much of a chance unless you're a Comedy Central host, a non-terrorist Muslim, or hip atheist who likes Chesterton (and, of course, part of the Real Catholics Who Know). Catholics (and we won't even get into Protestants, whose positive contributions to the human story are dwindling exponentially) who dare ask where science might be wrong about evolution, apparently are doing nothing less than flipping the middle finger to the Everlasting. Funny how, so many years ago, it was shown on a certain blog just how broad was the tent that allowed for diverse opinions over a host of issues. I don't know if it's gotten smaller, but it sure has changed the guest list as to who belongs.
"I am glad that you pointed out the very serious theological issue in which young-earth creationists and their ilk insinuate that the Creator is deceptive in the making of creation to appear old. It is also a separation of faith and reason, in that creation is not seen as intelligible, so we get into a whole can of worms about an arbitrary, fickle non-Logos God. Indeed, I think this is grave stuff, and should give us big reservations about a leader who endorses such a view."Another topic that good Catholics can disagree about in good faith bites the dust.
