Pope John Paul II stated clearly in 1981 that "[t]he Bible speaks to us of the origin of the universe and its make-up, . . .to state the correct relationships of [humans] with God and with the universe."

- that "in all the major court challenges to creationism, Roman Catholic scholars--biblical specialists, theologians and scientists--have been witnesses against Creationism and the fundamentalist understanding of intelligent design.
