Teilhard de Chardin, Pierre (1881-1955)
Jesuit geologist, paleontologist, and theologian.
During his lifetime he published only scientific works, for his
theological writings were prohibited by the Catholic Church.
However, after his death, his theological works were published, and they
became quite popular. His theology emphasized God as a part of the evolutionary
process of the universe. In The
Phenomenon of Man and other books, he argued that our increasingly
complex universe, with its evolution toward higher levels of consciousness, is
moving towards its omega point, or ultimate goal, in the cosmic Christ.
