Take THAT Ben Stein!

News from the BBC:
...the Vatican is organising a conference next year to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of the author of the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin.
Father Gabriel Funes, Vatican Astronomer made the announcement and included speculation on the spiritual state of possible alien races.

This is a good example of how theology should advance. It opens speculation on the nature of spiritual subject matter and does not glorify text written by persons who lived hundreds of years before the nature of space, time, and matter were explored in a meaningful way.
