Letters

From The Archbishop of York - 7 Jan 1991

"In answer to the first I would say that God has created the world of living creatures through the process of evolution which necessarily entails the destruction of some life forms by others. This certainly raises moral problems, but it appears to be an indubitable fact which our theology has to take into account.

"The Pope's statement about animal souls has to be read in the light of the Aristotelian philosophy which undergirds Roman Catholic thinking on this point, and which recognizes the existence of different types of soul appropriate to different levels of life. It does not follow from this philosophy that an animal soul is in all respects equivalent to a human soul."
