Most religions, realistically speaking, have an acceptance of science. Even if you totally believe the Bible, it only says Yahweh did certain things, not HOW they were done. How, assuming you believe a god created life, do you know he/she/it didn't use evolution to do so? So, a term for people who are Catholics and yet accept scientific reasoning would be "open minded.:
I can't think of the word,but it means open minded . We could start a new organization,We could call it the non secular church of the open mind, recognizing nothing but an open forum. Just I rule check your weapons at the door.we could have a different speaker every Friday night. BYOB.
Yes, Catholic! The Catholic Church teaches that: 1. There are no contradictions in the Bible, because God wrote the Bible, and God cannot contradict himself. 2. The Bible and true science do not contradict each other, because God wrote the Bible, and God made everyone and everything the scientist studies. So Catholicism and true science are compatible, because the Catholic faith is based on: the Bible; the teachings of the Apostles, and the Early Church Fathers; and the teaching authority of the Pope. I think the word you're other responder saw was probably, eclectic. An eclectic is a person who accepts what he thinks is correct, and rejects what he thinks is incorrect, from more than one source, and combines them, to form his own set of beliefs. One example would be a person whose beliefs include Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhist teachings. A second example would be a physician who uses a combination of allopathic, osteopathic, naturopathic, and Native American diagnostic and treatment methods. A true Catholic is not an eclectic in the area of religion, or of the Catholic faith. A true Catholic is not a cafeteria Catholic who picks and chooses what he will believe about the Catholic faith. I hope this helps to fully answer your question. Frank
