Christoph Cardinal Schoenborn weighs in against evolutionism Intelligent Design (0 comments)

Quite frankly, I don't give a rodent's arse for the Catholic Church's official stance on evolutionary theory. But I will note that Schoenborn is no friend of Intelligent Design, if this is what Dembski thinks is cozying up to the movement.
Schoenborn agrees with the Intelligent Design theory that the complexity of life clearly points to a superior intelligence that must have devised this system. He based this on reason, not science, as Intelligent Design theorists claim to do.... "Can we reasonably say the origin of man and life can only be explained by material causes?" he asked. "Can matter create intelligence? That is a question we can't answer scientifically, because the scientific method cannot grasp it."
I added emphasis, just in case Dembski can't read without a little help. ID isn't science--even Cardinal Schoenborn knows it.
