Two Catholic pubications touch upon evolution, first, Commonwealreviewskenotic theology, which seems to be entail (or at least align with) the necessity of evolution. I'm skeptical obviously, not being a believer, but it is an interesting idea and perhaps it will be attractive to some philosophically sophisticated believers (like panentheism). Second, The National Catholic ReporterreviewsThe Language of God
by Francis Collins. This caught my attention:
As an alternative to creationism and intelligent design, Dr. Collins endorses the theory of theistic evolution, which accepts Darwin's findings while positing that humans are "unique in ways that defy evolutionary explanation and point to our spiritual nature." As evidence, he cites the existence of a universal moral law and an intuitive search for God throughout history.
Collins should read Breaking the Spell
. It seems to me that Collins' epiphany is the true root of his faith, and all this argumentation is so post facto and ad hoc. But hey, food for thought....
