Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn’t ‘a magician with a magic wand

29 Oct

The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand,” Pope Francis has declared.

Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator — arguing instead that they “require it”.

“When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said.
