At last the semester is complete! Now I have some time... for the Christmas rush. Despite my desire to write a more in-depth analyis, I will have to be satisfied with merely pointing you to the latest exchange in the Schönborn offensive on evolution and design:
Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, "The Designs of Science," First Things 159 (January 2006): 34-38.
The piece addresses Steve Barr's response in FT to Schönborn's controversial New York Times op-ed this summer:
Stephen M. Barr, The Design of Evolution," First Things 156 (October 2005): 9-12.
Also interesting are the Cardinal's Vienna catecheses on creation:
- -Creation and Evolution: To the Debate as It Stands First Catechetical Lecture for 2005/2006; October 2, 2005
- -"In the Beginning God Created..." Second Catechesis: "In the Beginning God Created..." on November 13, 2005, St. Stephan's Cathedral, Vienna.
