In science classes in Catholic school, we were told that what we learn in class is as close to fact as we can possibly be and what we are told in our churchs was fantasy for “uneducated old ladies.”
I attended Catholic school for 12 years and was also taught evolution was fact. (I was a Theistic Evolutionist till quite recently.) It was at Catholic school, I learned the Vatican HELPS in perpetuating the Monkey Delusion and undermining the Word of God in the process. But they’ve sadly been doing that for centuries.
That sure isn't what I was taught, what my children were taught and what my grandchildren are being taught in Catholic schools. We were taught THAT God is the creator and that the Theory of Evolution only help to explain the process of HOW God created. If you were my kid I would have spoken with your principle.
