Darwin and Galileo Accepted by Vatican (?)

From the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life:

“Over the next several months, the Vatican will sponsor academic conferences dedicated to the work of the biologist Charles Darwin and astronomer Galileo Galilei, two thinkers whose ideas have posed revolutionary challenges to religious belief.

Featuring distinguished international panels of scientists and theologians, these events are the latest efforts by the Catholic Church under Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI to affirm that Christian faith and modern science are not at odds but in fact entirely compatible.”
