Benedict and Intelligent Design
VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday reaffirmed creation as the driving force of the universe, describing the natural world as an “intelligent project” and rejecting scientific thought that regards the history of the universe as random and directionless.
The pope’s remarks on evolution came one day after the Kansas Board of Education voted 6 to 4 to adopt new standards that cast doubt on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, though it was unclear whether the two developments were related.
