creationism is a type of paganism

So says Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno.

Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism - it's turning God into a nature god. And science needs religion in order to have a conscience, to know that, just because something is possible, it may not be a good thing to do.

Further details are available in this article. Hat tip to Elizabeth D at Street Prophets.
