That's called "rationalization."<quoted text>
The Church probably accepted some aspects of Evolution a hundred yrs ago. Why not?
True, they didn't publicly state it until recently, but that doesn't mean previous Popes and Bishops didn't accept it.
"Probably?" "Some aspects?" "... they didn't publicly state it?"
Here's some reality...
In 1907, Pope Plus X, condemned together with "Modernism", all the discoveries of modern science which are not approved by the Church
True, in the last 100 years, the RCC has become much more enlightened and supportive of (most) science. But you can't change the past -- which speaks directly to the title of this board.
RCC -- part of the oldest church, of course. Part of the founding church, yep. The only true church? Baloney.
