The Media weighs in B16's new book...

We'll I found this not more than a few minutes after I posted the previous entry on the Pope's new book. Already the MSM has it's own take on the book...

"Pope puts his faith in the Book of Genesis, not Darwin"

His predecessor appeared, on balance, to favour the scientists. But the present Pope may have tipped the scales the other way in the argument over which is the truer account of the Creation: On the Origin of Species or the Book of Genesis.

Pope Benedict XVI has stepped into the debate over Darwinism with remarks that will be seen as an endorsement of “intelligent design”.

The Pope did not explicitly back intelligent design or creationism. He praised scientific progress but said that the Darwinian theory of evolution was “not finally provable” because: “We cannot haul 10,000 generations into the laboratory.”

I wish I could read German...
