Church Says Science Isn't Heresy!

With apologies to Galileo, a cardinal who heads the Pontifical Council for Culture in Rome stated, "the faithful should listen to what secular modern science has to offer, warning that religion risks turning into "fundamentalism" if it ignores scientific reason."

Cardinal Poupard wants all disciplines to listen to each other. He reasons theology can learn much from natural science as natural science can learn much from theology. "We know where scientific reason can end up by itself: the atomic bomb and the possibility of cloning human beings are fruit of a reason that wants to free itself from every ethical or religious link[.]"

Wow, can someone show this article to Intelligent Design proponents?
