The New York Times revisits an op-ed piece it ran on Thursday wherein
An influential cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, which has long been regarded as an ally of the theory of evolution, is now suggesting that belief in evolution as accepted by science today may be incompatible with Catholic faith.

The cardinal, Christoph Schönborn, archbishop of Vienna, a theologian who is close to Pope Benedict XVI, staked out his position in an Op-Ed article ... on Thursday, writing, "Evolution in the sense of common ancestry might be true, but evolution in the neo-Darwinian sense - an unguided, unplanned process of random variation and natural selection - is not."
Fine: no natural selection. Whatever you say, Cardinal.

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I'm getting pretty tired of these morons trying to dispel what is the basis for all of biology and much of the rest of the sciences as well.
