Intelligent Design: an evolving concept (Die Welt, Germany)

This coming Friday, September 8, 2006, Pope Benedict XVI will conduct a seminar at Castel Gondolfo outside of Rome. For years while still a professor in Germany Joseph Ratzinger gathered students for a seminar on the issues facing the contemporary world. This year the focus is on the controversy between Intelligent Design and Evolution...

...Let us consider that all human ideas and concepts result from an evolutionary pattern of thinking. Breakthroughs are the result of years of painstaking and cumulative work of many: it evolves. I am not a 'pantheist' but a 'pan-entheist' i.e. I believe that all is in God and not that God is in everything or anything in particular. There is only one reality, and for the lack of a better term we call it God; the sum total of all universal energies. Is there intelligence in this universal energy? [News]
