ABSTRACT
The article comments on debates regarding the claims on evolution, the principles of intelligent design movement and the teachings of the Catholic Church. It mentions that as we cannot set aside the ideas promoted by the Intelligent Design Movement regarding the existence of mankind and god but also suggests that as Catholics, we must be cautious in understanding the material world and stick to our beliefs that God has created the us and the world.
