Evolution

The Wikipedia article that I referenced contains all kinds of support for my statements, including quotations from Popes and official Church documents. Also see the long list of references at the end of the article.

I was taught evolution in a Catholic grade school in the 1960s. Some of that may have been the influence of Vatican II, but Pius XII had already softened the Church's stance on evolution and Biblical literalism well before Vatican II.
