Evolutionary Confusion - THOMAS W. CASE

The trouble with evolution as an account of the way things work is that, if it is wrong, then a Creator must exist. There is no way around it. No wonder atheists are frightened.  Read more...

Faith, Science and the Persecution of Richard Sternberg - Benjamin D. Wiker

A fellow Catholic is now being persecuted, in no small part, because of his religion. You haven’t heard about it — nor are you likely to — precisely because it is just the kind of story the reigning media assiduously ignore.  Read more...

Fathers of Science - Matthew E. Bunson

Apologists and well-read Catholics can point to many priest-scientists and declare forcefully what Fr. Georges Lemaître — discoverer of the "Big Bang" — robustly proclaimed in 1933: "There is no conflict between religion and science."  Read more...

Finding Design in Nature - Cardinal Christoph Schönborn

Ever since 1996, when Pope John Paul II said that evolution (a term he did not define) was "more than just a hypothesis," defenders of neo-Darwinian dogma have often invoked the supposed acceptance - or at least acquiescence - of the Roman Catholic Church when they defend their theory as somehow compatible with Christian faith. But this is not true.  Read more...

Fr. Jaki and the Stillbirths of Science - Stacy Trasancos

Fr. Stanley L. Jaki used the phrase “stillbirths of science” in reference to the ancient cultures of Egypt, China, India, Babylon, Greece, and Arabia. The lifeless imagery was the counter-analogy to his claim that science was born of Christianity.  Read more...

From a brilliant mind, a silly book - Robert Fulford

Religion brings out the worst in Richard Dawkins. When he thinks about it, he becomes a preacher himself — and not a very good one.  Read more...

Galileo Galilei - Bertrand Conway

This article clears up some of the confusion regarding the Galileo case.  Read more...

God and Evolution - Avery Cardinal Dulles

During the second half of the nineteenth century, it became common to speak of a war between science and religion.  Read more...

God knows why faith is thriving - Dinesh D’Souza

A group of leading atheists is puzzled by the continued existence and vitality of religion.  Read more...

God Vibrations from Physics - Stephen M. Barr

Is the discovery of the Higgs particle what Joe Biden would describe as a big. . . deal?  Read more...

Has Science Killed God? - NORMAN PODHORETZ

Norman Podhoretz traces, from the time of Galileo, the various conflicts and connections between religion and science.  Read more...

He heard the music of the spheres - Douglas LeBlanc

Walter Isaacson’s new biography reinforces the notion of Albert Einstein as a humble scientist, especially in his relation to God and faith.  Read more...

Honouring Scientist Priests - Father George W. Rutler

While priests are dedicated to theology as the "queen of sciences," some of them have contributed to the material sciences as well.   Read more...

How Contemporary Physics Points to God - Father Robert J. Spitzer S.J.

Humans in “Frozen Orphanages” - Father Tadeusz Pacholczyk

A key argument in the embryonic stem cell debate — widely invoked by scientists, patient advocacy groups, and politicians — involves the fate of frozen embryos.   Read more...

Intelligent Design - Russell Shaw

Having stayed out of the evolution vs. Intelligent Design debate up to this time, I don't intend to get into it now — at least, not to the extent of pronouncing Intelligent Design correct. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. I just can't say.  Read more...

Intelligent Design or Mindless Evolution - Bishop Donald Wuerl

The intuition of human experience that there is intelligent design in the universe is so overwhelming that only ideology would deny it a hearing alongside any other theories about the origin of life.  Read more...

Is Richard Dawkins still evolving? - Melanie Phillips

On Tuesday evening I attended the debate between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox at Oxford’s Natural History Museum.  Read more...

Lies Against the Truth - Father George W. Rutler

On Pentecost, we rejoice that “God cannot lie” (Titus 1:1-2). The same cannot be said of Hollywood.  Read more...

Material Guy - GERALD L. SCHROEDER

Edward O. Wilson, in his book Consilience: the Unity of Knowledge, tries to make the case that morality is simply a product of evolution, a more developed version of a survival instinct that originated in our animal ancestors.  Read more...

New Physics, New Theology - PATRICK GLYNN

John Polkinghorne's Belief in God in an Age of Science, based on his Terry Lectures at Yale, explores the sweeping consequences of recent revolutions in science for the conflict between skepticism and faith.  Read more...

Nicolas Copernicus: Founder of Modern Astronomy - Rev. Martin S. Brennan

Nicolas Copernicus (1473-1543), the founder of modern astronomy, was destined to become, through the publication of his heliocentric theory, one of the seminal figures in the history of scientific thought.  Read more...

Nicolaus Copernicus - Father George William Rutler

Father Copernicus seems to have been so self-effacing that he was not considered well-known enough for a marked grave. He did not change the world as Christ did, but he changed the way the world is understood.   Read more...

Obama is no champion of science - Father Raymond de Souza

The scientists were jubilant, as men are when dividing the spoils.   Read more...
