Since the publication of The Origin of Species, the Church was confronted with the impossibility of the world being created, just as it is described in the book of Genesis. Although there was a great tension in the first decades, with the blooming of new methods focused on biblical studies and the increasing amount of scientific evidence supporting evolution, the narration of the Genesis started to be considered as an allegory and the first steps were given towards the reconciliation between science and religion.Despite there is still a long way to go regarding biological studies, it is becoming necessary, as it already happens with Physics, to search a way to promote the dialogue between the theology of creation – which is focused on the place of Mankind in the universe – and the evolutive science.
