Apes “R” Not Us: Catholics & the Debate Over Evolution - George Sim Johnston

Catholics should not hesitate to get involved in the debate over Darwin’s theory, especially since they occupy a reasonable middle ground between scientific and biblical fundamentalists. Nor should we leave popular science writing to people like Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Dawkins, whose charming expositions mask a fierce hostility to religion. These writers are masters of what Darwin called the “slow and silent side attacks” against Christianity.   Popular  Read more...

Aquinas and the Big Bang - William E. Carroll

Aquinas would have no difficulty accepting Big Bang cosmology, even with its recent variations, while also affirming the doctrine of creation out of nothing. He would, of course, distinguish between advances in cosmology and the philosophical and theological reflections on these advances.  Popular  Read more...

A man who believes in Darwin as fervently as he hates God - Rod Liddle

In the downstairs loo of Richard Dawkins's house in Oxford there's a framed award from the Royal Society; to remind visitors, or maybe Richard himself, that here lives a man of some purpose, some gravitas and intellectual clout.  Read more...

A Visual Apologetic for Life - Mark Earley

An Amazing Creation: When Science and Faith Meet - Peter Finney Jr.

An Evening with Darwin in New York - George Sim Johnston

The glibness of the recent Darwin exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in New York shows off the fact that Darwinism has become an officially sanctioned orthodoxy, an orthodoxy which is to be promoted and defended at all costs.  Read more...

Are Catholics Creationists? - George Sim Johnston

Today, the Pope Pius V University in Rome will be the setting for a day-long conference with the arresting title, “The Scientific Impossibility of Evolution.”  Read more...

Beyond the Death of God - PATRICK GLYNN

Billions of Planets, But Only One Earth - Ben Wiker

Claims of Earth's uniqueness have been held up for ridicule ever since Copernicus. Now along come Peter Ward and Donald Brownlee to upset scientific orthodoxy. Earth, they claim, is no run-of-the-mill planet. We are "not so ordinary as Western science has made us out to be . . . . Our global inferiority complex may be unwarranted."  Read more...

Blinded by Scientism - Edward Feser

Concerning Philosophers and Moths - Donald DeMarco

Creation, Evolution, and Thomas Aquinas - William E. Carroll

The analysis of creation and the distinctions Thomas Aquinas draws among the domains of metaphysics, the natural sciences, and theology can serve an important role in contemporary discussions of the relationship between creation and evolution.  Read more...

Darwin & Our Lady - David Warren

Feb. 12, 2009 is the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. By coincidence it is also Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday, but the media hype I have seen has been reserved mostly for Darwin.  Read more...

Dawkins is wrong about God - Roger Scruton

Faced with the spectacle of the cruelties perpetrated in the name of faith, Voltaire famously declared organised religion to be the enemy of mankind. Richard Dawkins, whose TV series The Root of all Evil? concludes next Monday, is the most influential living example of this tradition.  Read more...
