Creationism is not Cristianity

Creationism dismissed as 'a kind of paganism' by Vatican's astronomer:

Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism - it's turning God into a nature god. And science needs religion in order to have a conscience, to know that, just because something is possible, it may not be a good thing to do.

This is the best statement of how/if science and religion can coexist. This also puts an interesting spin on Christianity vs. Creationism & "Intelligent Design" — it has been mentioned before that Vatican does not support it.
