Pope: Humanity isn't random product of evolution

Posted: Updated:

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI has marked the holiest night of the year for Christians by preaching that humanity isn't a random product of evolution.

Benedict emphasized the Biblical account of creation in his Easter Vigil homily, saying it was wrong to think at some point "in some tiny corner of the cosmos there evolved randomly some species of living being capable of reasoning and of trying to find rationality within creation, or to bring rationality into it."

He said: "If man were merely a random product of evolution in some place on the margins of the universe, then his life would make no sense or might even be a chance of nature." He said "creative, divine reason" was present during the origin of life.
