Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney has said that the story of Adam and Eve is a myth and is designed as a religious story for religious purposes.
Pell appeared with notorious atheist Richard Dawkins on an Australian TV Question and Answer show. When questioned about evolution, he said that the existence of Adam and Eve is “not a matter of science but rather a mythological account.”
“It’s a very sophisticated mythology to try to explain the evil and the suffering in the world,” he said. He said that it is impossible to say when there was the first human.
The Bible says that Adam and Eve were the first parents of the whole human family, created by God on the sixth day of creation. But the scientific community has accepted that life on earth evolved in about four billion years.
The Catholic Church does not accept the Bible as the authoritative word of God. Thus the church contributes to unbelief in God. During the French Revolution the constitutional bishop of Paris openly denied the existence of God, saying that everything that he and the church had taught was false. Now Cardinal Pell is essentially doing the same thing by denying the Bible account of the origins of man in the name of the Christian religion. This teaching replaces the authority of God and His word with human reasoning. It is particularly insidious because it comes clothed with the garments of a cardinal pretending to represent the Christian faith. If the authority of the Bible is swept away, the law of God will be disregarded, which will lead to the disregard of all law, and result in anarchy.
If the Catholic Church joins with atheists to promote “the world-wide dissemination of the same teachings that led to the French Revolution,” it will lead to the whole world being involved “in a struggle similar to that which convulsed France.” Education, page 228

Matt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs ad wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. This generation of people are the weakest in mind, body and Spirit, satan can get away with only what our Creator will let him get away with. However, this just shows that people are lazy, we want to have a Savior, but we want him to accept us the way we are, instead of trying to uplift ourselves to be more like him. This just shows how blinded we have become, 2 Thess. 211 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie.

Found the fact that Pell was stripped of his honor’s, arrested and incarcerated Yet still remains a Cardinal/Priest of the Papacy quite Telling!
It’s almost like they are directly saying they don’t see what he did as a crime
