This just in on the topic of intelligent design:
This isnâ€™t how science is done. If the model proposed by Darwin is deemed insufficient, one should look for another, but itâ€™s not correct from a methodological point of view to take oneself away from the scientific field pretending to do science.
[Intelligent design] doesnâ€™t belong to science and the pretext that it be taught as a scientific theory alongside Darwinâ€™s explanation is unjustified.
It only creates confusion between the scientific and philosophical and religious planes.
That was just a little something I read in the Vatican newspaper.
