Maybe Answers in Genesis Should Take a Cue from the Catholic Church

To complement all the excitement surrounding the selection of Pope Francis, here’s a helpful article from io9 reminding us that the Catholic Church does accept the theory of evolution:

Back in 1950, Pope Pius XII laid out his papal encyclical, “Humani Generis,” in which the Church’s official position on natural selection was laid out. The statement said that there’s no intrinsic conflict between Christianity and evolution. The theory, as articulated by Charles Darwin in On the Origin of Species, has withstood scientific scrutiny since its publication in 1859 — and the Church does not dispute this.

Somebody should get Answers in Genesis a copy of the Catechism.
