I read Teilhard 30 years ago whilst riding buses to & from work in San
Francisco. Had never heard of him prior, but found his books in those
wonderful Bay Area book stores. McLuhan, apparently like Percy, was also
seriously skeptical of Teilhard de Chardin. For myself, his understanding
of evolution only made sense. Ever since I've not understood the need to
draw an opposition between science and religion based on evolution, or I
should say I don't accept it. It seems a naivete on both sides.
Nice to see Percy-L percolating again.
