The Vatican has endorsed evolution to a higher degree than many other Christian denominations, including the ones who literally believe that the Earth is 6000 years old. The Vatican also has an official astronomer and observatory, plus the Pontifical Academy of Sciences uses the world's leading scientists to advise the Pope in matters of science.The Church has changed a little since the trial of Galileo and it'd take a fool not to see that.1992: Catholic Church apologizes to Galileo, who died in 1642Does "very little" count?
