Evolution and Pope Benedict

DUBLIN, IE (May 25, 2012) - Pope Benedict has given a Vatican Apostolic Blessing to a recent seminar which questioned the certainy of Darwin’s theory of evolution. This seminar took place in the latter half of 2009 in Austria, and is seen as a welcome development among some Catholics who are concerned by the moral collapse of the western society.

A conference called “Evolutionary Theory and Science” was hosted by Rector Count von Brandenstein-Zeppelin of the Gustav-Siewerth-Akademie in Weilheim-Bierbronnen. The rector requested a papal observer to attend, but was declined. However the Vatican Secretary of State Monsignor Peter B. Wells communicated in a letter to the rector the requested Apostolic Blessing from Pope Benedict XVI which was given. The seminar has since been pubished in book form (late 2011), and has deliberations from many qualified Catholic scientists, theologians and philosophers, such as Hugh Owen of the Kolbe Center, Dominique Tassot, Lee M. Spetner, all who are at odds with the largely non-Catholic scientists employed by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Science. The Papal Academy of Science advised Pope John Paul II on discoveries allegedly supporting the theory of evolution. The book also contains a copy of the Apostolic Blessing from Pope Benedict.

Copies can be obtained from the Rector Count von Brandenstein-Zeppelin by posting to this address or contacting the number provided:
