This is a very interesting, and yet not surprising, issue. "Christian churches were long hostile to Darwin because his theory conflicted with the literal biblical account of creation." "But the Catholic Church never condemned Darwin, as it condemned and silenced Galileo." Galileo challenged the then believed legends, and his challenges were not contrary to Scripture as the Romish church claimed, and he was rejected and persecuted, though he was a Roman Catholic; but the one who was totally against the Scripture, even Charles Darwin, the Roman Catholic church "never condemned." What is the authority that the Romish church relies on and stands upon? Pagan legends, it's traditions, and it's own rules and laws; thus they put aside the only truth that we have: the plain word of God. But through this move the Catholic church is again seeking to bring even atheists under its authority, which it does stealthily and wisely. What will this result in? In the persecution and destruction of those who stand on the Creator's plain words.
