Cardinal Schoenborn Sees the Light

First, Bob Davidson, an M.D., scientist, and professor for 28 years at the University of Washington medical school -- an ardent Christian whose name appears on the Discovery list of scientists who doubt Darwin -- said he believes "the scientific evidence for evolution is overwhelming."

"I'm kind of embarrassed that I ever got involved with this," Davidson now says of his flirtation with the Discovery Institute.

Then, just last week, Knight-Ridder reported that yet another signer was having buyer's remorse: "Stanley Salthe, a zoologist at the State University of New York in Binghamton, replied "absolutely not" when he was asked if he agrees that there must have been a supernatural designer."

Now comes perhaps the most damaging reversal of all.

"Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn," reports Reuters, "said he could believe both in divine creation and in evolution because one was a question of religion and the other of science, two realms that complemented rather than contradicted each other."

Darwin’s theory of evolution, Cardinal Schoenborn is reported by Reuters to have said in a lecture published by his office on Tuesday, is “one of the very great works of intellectual history.”

Let the wailing and gnashing of teeth begin.
