President David O. McKay writes Dr. A. Kent Christensen: "The Church has issued no official statement on the subject of the theory of evolution. Neither 'Man, His Origin and Destiny' by Elder Joseph Fielding Smith nor 'Mormon Doctrine' by Elder Bruce R. McConkie, is an official publication of the Church. . . . While scientific people themselves differ in their interpretations and views of the theory, any conflicts which may seem to exist between the theory and revealed religion can well be dealt with by suspending judgment as long as may be necessary to arrive at facts and at a complete understanding of the truth" McKay-s secretary Clare Middlemiss restates first sentence in letter of May 8, 1964
