Speak for yourself ****. The church (the real church) is far from stupid. Folly only arose when the laity made attempts to interpret scripture. And whoever denies biological evolution is a dumbass. The one true Catholic church affirms evolution and you can even infer it in some ways from scripture.
I know that the Roman Catholic Church accepts the doctrine (they can only talk in terms of doctrines) of evolution but only from the point of creation of the world six thousand years ago (give or take).
If you did not have a lazy eye, you would have noticed that I said that it's the North American Evangelistic communities aniong the Christian sects that fight the theory of evolution.
I admit that my wording was ambiguous.
You will know what I mean by the Church hindering progress: the church officially admitted only in the nineteen seventies or eighties, or maybe the nineties, that they were wrong in their treatment of the teachings of Galileo Galilei.
This came 500 years after circumnavigation of the globe, after 100 years of hot air ballooning around the round earth, after 80 years of airplane travel, after 20 years of observing the earth from space, and after about 300-400 years of near complete and near precise knowledge of the nature of the solar system.
As the great writer and social critic Yaroslav Haczech put it, "the Holy Roman Catholic Church does not oppose progress, but it considers it its duty to keep it in check."
