YOU left before commenting 're the CATECHISM
Oh I trust the woman who gave me the the CatHOLIC site as she teaches,Catholic religious education education as bible study and now will teach CCD classes,at the Catholic school...
Again the ,site,
http://www.catholic.com/tracts/adam-eve-and-e...
..But didn't even look for the imprimatur as she said it was there,....But guess what. IT SAYS NIHIL OBSTAT
And I just FOUND MY Baltimore Catechism
Man is a creature composed of body and soul and made in the image and likeness,of God
No evolving out of other creatures,is mentioned
at all
http://catecheticsonline.com/...
NO EVOLUTION FROM OTHER FORMS,OF BIOLOGICAL.LIFE ..
I can read AND REMEMBER JUST FINE .
AND if I get forgetful ..J have a few bibles
..plus those online. all versions
The only religious source that says,anything about DEVELOOING FROM OTHER BIOLOGICAL BEINGS,...the CATHOLIC SITE with Imprimatur
And a couple from on here
But see I went to an actual Catholic teacher because I thought Clay was mistaken..But guess he was right.
Truth is truth Regina,..it does NOT CHANGE if it's,scriptural
GOD CREATED ADAM and greater Life into him.....he did NOT evolve
From your source:

"As the Catechism puts it, "Methodical research in all branches of knowledge, provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things the of the faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are" (CCC 159). The Catholic Church has no fear of science or scientific discovery."

So what would you attribute to arriving at an answer?

Since you don't believe in the Self, then please remove "free will" from the list of answers, or any other aspect of your character that has to do with free will.

Thanks!

Answer to WHAT???
There is no cure for human stupidity.
Intellect can't reach beyond it's self.
People keep fighting over whose god is real and whose is false ... when there is not a shred of proof that the universe was created ... period.
Yet they kill each other over who will receive the love.
If you can find any smarts in that scenario of self ... your self will indeed be a miracle worker.
"Answer to WHAT??"
- Your statement to me involves a conclusion you made. How did you come to that conclusion?

June, I'm sure you mean well ;) but that is neither doctrine nor dogma. As I said, it cannot be changed.
You can say what you will about doctrine or dogma, but it was the words in the bible that they were following.

Any person who curseth his mother or father, must be killed.(Leviticus 20:9)

If a man cheats on his wife, or vise versa, both the man and the woman must die.(Leviticus 20:10).

If a man sleeps with his father's wife... both him and his father's wife is to be put to death.(Leviticus 20:11)

If a man sleeps with his wife and her mother they are all to be burnt to death.(Leviticus 20:14)

If a man or woman has sex with an animal, both human and animal must be killed.(Leviticus 20:15-16).

If a man has sex with a woman on her period, they are both to be "cut off from their people" (Leviticus 20:18)

Psychics, wizards, and so on are to be stoned to death.(Leviticus 20:27)

If a priest's daughter is a whore, she is to be burnt at the stake.(Leviticus 21:9)

People who have flat noses, or is blind or lame, cannot go to an altar of God (Leviticus 21:17-18)

Anyone who curses or blasphemes God, should be stoned to death by the community.(Leviticus 24:14-16)

"WHO AM I TO JUDGE" said the pope yesterday. How convenient in this time of changing societal values to follow the mainstream and ignore previous church teachings.

Like I said earlier, membership in the church is falling,(i.e. donations), so you have to go with the flow during these times to survive.

Does "pedophile" appear in the reports??
The term "child sexual abuse" occurs on the site so frequently as to lose count.

Assuming the SBC doesn't ordain children to the ministry, we can conclude that we're dealing with pedophiles.

How's that shoe tasting?

Discrediting the Black Legend brings up the sticky subject of revisionism. Re-investigating history is only invalid if it puts an agenda ahead of reality. The experts once true believers in the Inquisition myth were not out to do a feminist canonization of Isabella or claim that Tomas de Torquemada was a Marxist. Henry Kamen of the Higher Council for Scientific Research in Barcelona said on camera that researching the Inquisition's archives "demolished the previous image all of us historians) had."

Inquisition pale in comparison to the 150,000 documented witch burnings elsewhere in Europe over the same centuries.

And the future of the Black Legend? For many it may continue to hold more weight than reality.

JESUS IS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH
Heb_12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
JESUS SAID...
Mar_16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Joh_3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh_3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh_3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Joh_5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Joh_6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Joh_6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
----
Mat_16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Mat 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
Mat 11:26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Mat 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

I wonder what changed the mind of religionists to show them that they cannot just burn people to death anymore.
I betcha that they were bummed out - just a wee bit!
:o)
So Catholics and Prtestants, why are we not still seeing people burned and tortured anymore? Did your religion change its view on heresy?
Theologians wrote from their cruel own assessments what a god wanted them to do to other people ... and they followed those words to a T.

Now Christians want to pretend those words don't exist and that a god never commanded the killing of others.

They lie through their teeth.

Why people even desire to belong to religious groups that teach such horrible dogmas is beyond me.
I was under the spell of religion for most of my life, but I created a belief of my own that the one god loved everybody without conditions put upon the love.
At least I wasn't trying to grab all the supposed love for my self while claiming that others deserved to spend eternity in hell.

I have yet to find an avowed atheist willing, with complete certainty, to seal his fate for all of eternity......would you want to have a go at it?????
By all means, please take my presence here as gospel that I am committing blasphemeth against yours or any other God. Now does that mean I must be killed for it? Am I to suffer for all eternity? Is that righteousness? Is that mercy? Is that love?
Is that how your all powerful and everliving god delivers his message?

Or for my sins is he going to create another holocaust. He is the creator after all.

Drinking and Praying: Proposal Could Tip Irish Priests Over Legal Limit

Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland want to lower the legal blood alcohol level for drivers. Priests are afraid it might affect their ability to motor around after Mass.

Bad Blood: Priests in Ireland are concerned that lowering the legal drinking level for drivers might leave them stranded after Mass.

The job description for a Catholic priest doesn't include a lot of perks -- perhaps one reason that their numbers are shrinking rapidly across the Western world. In Ireland, though, the gig might be further complicated by a new proposal to lower the legal blood alcohol limit for drivers. Priests there are speaking out against the proposal because it could render them legally drunk after performing Mass.

Why is it that you are drinking the actual blood of Christ....and the priests in Ireland are not... they are drinking wine that could get them arrested for DUI???!!!!!

Aunt refused to answer that question....you want to have a go at it????

Church teaching never required killing anyone. Did people do it? Yes, but not in accord with Church doctrine or dogma. They rationalized their actions via the Church. Bad actors.
The Church is made up of the people who commanded the killings.

Please stop twisting history to be a flavor that sits well on the palette.
