Since Steven is so fond of quotes here is one for him to chew on:

""It is indeed remarkable that [The Theory of Evolution] has progressively
taken root in the minds of researchers following a series of discoveries
made in different spheres of knowledge.

"The convergence, neither sought nor provoked, of results of studies
undertaken independently from each other constitutes in itself a significant
argument in favour of this theory."--Pope John Paul, Oct. 24, 1996

you can read the whole thing at:

The Pope can hardly be considered a "materialist/naturalist"!


How does Johnson respond to the Pope's remarks? How does he account for the
fact that Catholic schools have taught evolution since the 1960s even though
their philosophical foundation can hardly be called "materialist/naturalist"?

The naturalistic/materialistic 'foundation' argument is of course easily show erroneous.

And why don't you ever answer my questions?

My guess ? Because he can't. Indeed his arguments have shown themselves to be unsupportable in fact, and are often based upon a careless reading on his part.
