Catholic Church and Evolution
While it is still a bit hazy, the official teaching of the catholic church on evolution is that it does exist. They teach a modified version of evolution. “ It allows for the possibility that man’s body developed from previous biological forms, under God’s guidance, but it insists on the special creation of his soul.” source: http://www.catholic.com/library/Adam_Eve_and_Evolution.asp
So the official view of the church is that you can believe in evolution if you leave room for God and the soul.
From google timeline I learned that the Catholic Church has become more accepting of evolution and has only recently officially stated their opinion on it. Some members of the church still hold personal opinions about evolution, but that does not reflect the official view of the Church.
