No intelligent design here

How strange is that?

According to BBC, the Vatican might host a Darwin conference ...

While that article let me with a "Eh, what?!" feeling, the last bit of the article was the most interesting.

Apparently at the aforementioned conference Prof. Francisco Ayala will talk against intelligent design.

This is sure to upset a lot of people. Especially as the point of this conference is to discuss "compatibility of Darwin's theory of evolution and Catholic teaching".

My my, even the Vatican is a bit more progressive than certain nations.
