The Pope accepts evolution

Fun religion/science fact

The new pope (aka, the head of the worlds largest and oldest Christian church) who has been known to hold a great deal of conservative ideas about Christianity is urging Christians to accept the theory of evolution.

Pope Francis said “When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything — but that is not so. Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”

Is the pope wrong? Is evolution compatible with Christianity?
