ABSTRACT
The article discusses speculation that George Coyne, former director of the Vatican Observatory, was replaced because of his evolutionary views. Coyne rejects the notion, saying he stepped down voluntarily because the observatory needed fresh leadership. Coyne is a proponent of evolution and regularly clashes with those who argue for intelligent design.
