Science Cannot Disprove Faith, Cardinal Argues

March 03, 2009

Speaking at the opening of a Vatican conference marking the 150th anniversary of Darwin's Origin of Species, Cardinal William Levada said that it is "absurd" to suggest that modern science can disprove the existence of God. The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said that scientific inquiry and religious faith are separate endeavors, and it is a logical error to think that one could determine the other. Christian doctrine does not explain the physical processes by which Creation took place, the cardinal observed. "We believe that however creation has come about and evolved, ultimately God is the creator of all things," he explained. Briefly addressing the debate over Creationist theory, the American prelate said that the Church would not take a stand on a properly scientific issue. "The Vatican listens and learns," he said.
