Acceptance of evolution by religious groups
Although biological evolution has been vocally opposed by some religious groups, above all in the United States, many other groups accept the scientific position, sometimes with additions to allow for theological considerations. The positions of such groups are described by terms including ""theistic evolution"", ""theistic evolutionism"" or ""evolutionary creation"". Theistic evolutionists believe that there is a God, that God is the creator of the material universe and (by consequence) all life within, and that biological evolution is a natural process within that creation. Evolution, according to this view, is simply a tool that God employed to develop human life. According to the American Scientific Affiliation, a Christian organization of scientists:According to Eugenie Scott, Director of the US National Center for Science Education, ""In one form or another, Theistic Evolutionism is the view of creation taught at the majority of mainline Protestant seminaries, and it is the official position of the Catholic church"".Theistic evolution is not a scientific theory, but a particular view about how the science of evolution relates to religious belief and interpretation. Theistic evolution supporters can be seen as one of the groups who reject the conflict thesis regarding the relationship between religion and science – that is, they hold that religious teachings about creation and scientific theories of evolution need not contradict. Proponents of this view are sometimes described as Christian Darwinists.
