The Catholic church has announced that the theory of evolution by natural selection is well founded and compatible with church dogma. That noise you heard? That was the entire evolutionary biology community heaving a collective sigh of relief.
Welcome to the 20th century. By the way, when the scientific community needs the opinion of a bunch of geriatric male virgins in skirts to figure out what's right, I'll be canceling my membership to AAAS. And then the Vatican claims that their guys (specifically Aquinas and Augustine) speculated about evolution before Darwin. Ah, revisionism. The great friend of the Vatican. Thanks for all you've done for us, guys.
