Note 5

All this need not necessarily contradict theological views concerning the Creation of Man. Such a Creation is an absolute attribution of Being, while the Theory of Evolution of Natural Science already presupposes Being. So this theory is only about the transformation of already existent beings. The concept of Creation is much more fundamental than the considerations of evolutionary theory, it leaves everything out (of consideration) and concentrates on the attribution of Being as such, together with one or another way of making sense (with respect to humans) of the Creation (especially the Creation of Man). That's why the concept of Creation is not comparable with scientific considerations and also not with considerations in the Philosophy of Nature. In short, let them not try to refute each other, which would mean a confusion of categories!
