Peace be with you Victor,
The issue is not with older Catholics. If so then at 40 I must be one my self, lol. The problem lies in a deeper area. Evolution as is taught and presented today and as in the past, denies God and Intelligent Design. It’s a fact I’ve read Darwin and others and if you take all that they say as fact, we are lucky to even have existed at all. To them we are a series of cosmic mistakes that we lucked up from. Sorry I can’t and won’t except that. Now maybe that’s were”older” Catholics and “younger” Catholics differ.
Nothing in the Catechism really address this other then:
[quote:1n0ldflx]Catechism 159 Faith and science: “Though faith is above reason, there can never be any real discrepancy between faith and reason. Since the same God who reveals mysteries and infuses faith has bestowed the light of reason on the human mind, God cannot deny himself, nor can truth ever contradict truth.”37 “Consequently, methodical research in all branches of knowledge, provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things of faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are.”38 [/quote:1n0ldflx]
I hope this helps in some understanding. God Bless!
