The Pope Says The Big Bang Is True

01.07.11 | Sarah Harnisch

 The pope said something a bit startling yesterday. He said the Big Bang theory is true, and Christians should reject the idea that the universe came into being by accident. He also said that God's mind was behind the Big Bang. He made the speech to some ten thousand people yesterday in Saint Peter's Basilica. while the pope has spoken before about evolution-- he has rarely discussed specific concepts like the Big Bang. Pope Benedict said he's trying to shed the church's reputation of being anti-science.
