That's because the catholic church is already on the side of science in general. This is because we believe that God created everything and the way it functions. So if for example science proved the theory of evolution exactly without a doubt, we would already be on their side because that's how god designed cells and organisms to function. No offense to atheist but if you think about it, calling yourself an atheist is just calling yourself ignorant. All this didn't come from nothing you know. You can still believe everything about science and its theories, but not believing in a first cause (One Original creator/ higher power) like the atheist Aristotle is just ignorant. And if you want to bring the evil in this world into this argument, I have a pretty clear answer. God gave us free will because he knows that it's not love if we don't choose to love and believe in him and he didn't want us to be mindless robots, even though there would be permanent peace.

I'm like the 45434th reply to this but I feel the need to add my two cents.

Really? The Catholic church is on the side of science? Read a history book, dude. Just because your church finally accepts scientific findings that should've been accepted decades ago, doesn't meant they're on science's "side".

All you have described is the god of the gaps; that science is merely a long drawn out explanation with god behind it. You merely calling people ignorant for not merely attributing everything they find to god is ridiculous.

Evolution can never be "exactly proven without a doubt". That's not how science works, and at this point we can't find anything like that. But it's been heavily suggested with mountains of empirical evidence already. Yet I guarantee that if just a little more evidence comes forward, to the point where its even more ridiculous to deny evolution, you're gonna hop on the bandwagon with your church and be like "we were on science's side the whole time!".

Couldn't have god given us free will in a way where we still always choose to love and accept him and not end up burning in hell? Why not? He is god after all..
