Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, recently a candidate for papal succession, offers his defense of theistic evolution in this elucidation of his 2005 New York Times editorial. While distinguishing the biological theory of evolution (change over time through chance) from the anti-Christian religio-humanistic movement ("evolutionism"), Cardinal Schönborn gives the Catholic understanding of origins by way of philosophy and through the lens of secular science. While tacitly calling creationism (biblical literalism) irrational, the Cardinal attempts to position theology, philosophy and science on the same level to create a palatable synthesis.
