1 min read

At the Synod meeting of the Bishops of the Russian True Orthodox Church, during its regular meeting from November 08/21 to November 10/23, 2018 a judgment was made regarding the anathema of Charles Darwin’s materialistic theory of the evolution of the organic world. The following anathemas were formulated against Darwinism, which are to be proclaimed on the Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy:

To those who wickedly teach that the whole process of creation did not, and does not, take place through the Providence of God, but accidentally, through the random processes of mutation and natural selection (which are essentially destructive, deadly processes) – ANATHEMA!

To those who wickedly teach that man is a descendant of monkeys, while Holy Scripture teaches: “Then, the Lord God created man from the dust of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul,” and thus deny the Orthodox teaching regarding the nature of man, which our Lord Jesus Christ took upon Himself through His Incarnation, ANATHEMA!
