Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
CREATION AND EVOLUTION is a book based on papers and discussion presented by well known scholars at a Conference at Castel Gandolfo hosted by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006. The men who wrote papers and engaged in intelligent debate offered "food for thought" to those interested in the supposed debate re Creation vs. Evolution. Regardless of what one believes re this debate topic, the book offers an intelligent alternative to the ad hominem views presented in the popular press and media.

The participants during this conference were Pope Benedict XVI, Prof. Peter Schuster who is professor of chemisty at the University of Vienna, Prof. Robert Spacemann who is professor emeritus of philosophy at the Ludwig Maximilian-University in Munich, Germany, Prof Paul Erbrichch who is professor emeritus in Muhich Germany,and Cardinal Schonborn who is the Archbishop of Vienna and author of the book titled CHANCE OR PURPOSE. These men wrote papers and debated differences with intelligence and clarity.

Prof. Schuster wrote a facinating paper re molecular biology, genetics, and develop of organisms from simple cell structure. This essay had some interesting points that cellular development appears to have purpose and some sort of design. Prof. Schuster used effective metaphors to explain mutations of cells which occur much faster than previously thought. One interesting metaphor was the competition between cells and viruses. Prof. Schuster explained that when viruses attack cells, cells mutate a genetic defense. Then the viruses mutate to overcome cellular defense while in turn cells develop (mutate) to face new challenges. Prof. Schuster called this continual "combat" and arms race between cells and viruses. Prof.

For one who teaches science and lives by faith reading this book was a reinforcement of my belief that I am doing the right thing and living the right way.
Life is more than just physical matter. In our daily lives we need to make decisions that could impact and change our lives forever, for this reason, our brain isn't always at it's best therefore at this point we need some greater than ourselves guidance.
The opinion expressed in the book by some of the greatest scientific and theological minds will be a source of wisdom and intellectual wealth to any reader despite the scientific or theological point of view.
I am going to read the book again, because this is one of these books that you want to learn, remember and get the most out of it.

I teach science in a Catholic high school. This book helped me greatly in clearly understanding Church teaching regarding interpretation and application of evolutionary theory in the light of Church teaching. An excellent synthesis. Included some scientific explanations as well. Must-read for the Christian biologist or teacher!
