I've been quietly watching this thread, and I can go along with most of what's recently been said, even most of what has been said from both "sides". Good points all around, one might say.
But it's not at all clear how I, as a Catholic, could go along with this, at least, given the face-value of what is written.
Does this "evolution of man" mean that there a "quasi-Man"? A sort of "lesser Man"? One with an inchoate Spirit or Nous? "Neither fish nor fowl", as they say, being not quite animal, yet not quite Imago Dei?
