"It is obviously possible to believe in the idea of a God, a God that has a presence and an interest in humanity without rejecting the overwhelming data that supports evolution and the failure of anything that contradicts it.

One of the great things about randomness and chance is that they are used in the process of evolution as I personally view it, as remarkable tools within that toolbox of God's creative interest. I mean to say that to reject the idea that chance is something that could be used by the devine,  is to limit the power of the devine considerably."- Barry Lynn, Executive Director for Separation of Church and State

"The sacred scripture wishes to simply declare that the world was created by God.  The Bible does not wish to teach how heaven was made, but how one goes to heaven." - Pope John Paul II
