Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was a Jesuit paleoanthropologist. Chardin was passionate about incorporating evolutionary biology into a Catholic theological outlook. However he rejected a materialistic Darwinian interpretation of evolution, for a spiritual life-force (élan vital). Teilhard developed the concept of the Noosphere, derived from the Greek nous ("mind"), as a development of Earth after biological life (biosphere). According to Teilhard the Omega Point is the maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards the Noosphere is evolving, which resembles the Christian Logos, namely Christ.
