Possible to believe in both evolution and creation, says Pope
October 29 , 2014
Pope Francis has said that evolution and creation are not contradictory to each other, according to media reports.
The big bang theory of the world’s origin “does not contradict the divine act of creation,” he said while speaking to the pontifical academy of sciences.
The 77-year-old Pope said evolution was not incompatible with the “notion of creation” because the former “presupposes the creation of beings which evolve.”
He also cautioned against thinking of God as a magician, who could do everything “with a magic wand.”
