Origins of the Universe - Sheila Gribbens Liaugminas

Can science prove or disprove the existence of God?  Read more...

Physics vs. metaphysics, knowledge vs. wisdom - Father Raymond J. de Souza

Stephen Hawking, the biggest brain among the big brains of physics, took the star turn here for the recent World Science Festival.   Read more...

Prophet of Pointlessness—book review - STEPHEN M. BARR

Richard Dawkins has been accused of spreading a cold and joyless message, a pessimistic nihilism and his latest book, Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion, and the Appetite for Wonder, was written in response to these charges. But the book is based, in its entirety, on a simple mistake.  Read more...

Recovering Sight after Scientism - Edward Feser

Seeing that scientism is unsustainable, we must embrace a return to philosophy. The second article in a two-part series.  Read more...

Retelling the Story of Science - Stephen M. Barr

The claims of scientific materialism have not changed substantially in over a hundred years. And yet much else has changed in that time. We know much more than we did about the origins of science; we know vastly more about nature. It is a good time, therefore, to take a fresh look at the materialist ideology of science and its story of science to see how well they have held up in the light of new knowledge.  Read more...

Rethinking Thinking - Raymond Tallis

While we are not angels fallen from heaven, we are not just neural machines. Nor are we merely exceptionally clever chimps.  Read more...

Science and Religion in Identity Crisis - STANLEY L. JAKI

Three hundred or so years ago not a few scientists spoke of science and religion as united in a holy alliance. Two hundred years later theologians could do little about the warfare in which science and religion appeared to be locked forever.  Read more...

Science and the Demands of Virtue - Father Gregory Jensen

Contrary to the popular understanding, the natural sciences are not morally neutral. Not only do the findings of science have moral implications, the actual work of scientific research presupposes that the researcher himself is a man of virtue.  Read more...

Science and the Story that we Need - NEIL POSTMAN

A serious spiritual problem confronting us in the technological age is that in having effectively solved the problem of information scarcity, we now find that we lack the transcendent narratives that would provide us with the moral guidance, social purpose, and intellectual economy necessary to tell us what we need to know, and especially what we do not need to know.  Read more...

Scientists are finding a friend in religion - Mark O'Keefe

When Rick Husband, commander of the shuttle Columbia, looked out the window of his spacecraft, he saw what he called God's awe-inspiring creation. Crew member Michael Anderson, a physicist, believed that heaven, not space, was his final frontier.  Read more...

Something Beyond Nature - Charles Colson

Two recent scientific experiments look like a real pain in the neck for materialists. Both experiments were simple, yet both had some thought-provoking results.  Read more...

Stanley Jaki and the Saviour of Science - Father George W. Rutler

On this day of the Summer Solstice, I think of how much I enjoy the calendar published by the Vatican Observatory, with beautiful photographs of the planets taken with its telescopes at its headquarters on the grounds of the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo.  Read more...

Stem Cell Miracle? - Charles Krauthammer

It has just been demonstrated that stem cells with enormous potential can be harvested from amniotic fluid. This is a revolutionary finding.   Read more...

Study guide for Scopes Trial - Robin Bernhoft

In the summer of 1925, a small town in Tennessee became a hub of intense international interest when famed defence lawyer Clarence Darrow squared off against progressive politician William Jennings Bryan over a Tennessee law that forbade the teaching of the theory of evolution in schools. Here, in summary, are the often-distorted facts of the case.  Read more...

Survival of the fakest - Jonathan Wells

Science now knows that many of the pillars of Darwinian theory are either false or misleading. Yet biology texts continue to present them as factual evidence of evolution. What does this imply about their scientific standards?  Read more...

Teach Evolution—And Ask Hard Questions - MICHAEL J. BEHE

In response to the recent Kansas Board of Education’s decision not to teach the Theory of Evolution, Michael Behe’s New York Times editorial argues that we should teach Darwin’s elegant theory, but also be willing to discuss where it has real problems accounting for the data and where scientists seem to be engaged in wishful thinking.  Read more...

The ayatollah of atheism and Darwin’s altars - Paul Johnson

How long will Darwin continue to repose on his high but perilous pedestal? I am beginning to wonder.  Read more...

The Biblical Basis of Western Science - REV. STANLEY JAKI

Nothing irks the secular world so much as a hint, let alone a scholarly demonstration, that supernatural revelation, as registered in the Bible, is germane to science.  Read more...

The Cardinal, the Haberdashery, The Eskimos and the Third Thing - Donald DeMarco

If there was one moment when it became obvious that the intelligent design discussion was an opportunity for the Church, it may have been when The New York Times published a contribution by none other than Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.  Read more...

The Christian Origins of Modern Science - James Hannam

There has been no great conflict between science and religion: on the contrary, Christianity was an essential factor in the rise of modern science.  Read more...

The Church Opposes Science: The Myth of Catholic Irrationality - Christopher Kaczor

"Christopher Kaczor is one of our finest young Catholic philosophers. In The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church, he shows that he is also one of our finest defenders of the Catholic faith. Essential reading for the new evangelization." - Most Reverend Jose H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles  Read more...

The curious metaphysics of Dr. Stephen Hawking - Father Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D.

Why would a preeminent physicist make the claim that “the universe can come from nothing?”   Read more...

The Death of Darwinism - George Sim Johnston

No book has so profoundly affected the way modem man views himself than Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species, first published in 1859. The notion that man is the product of a blind, materialist process which did not have him in mind is part of the intellectual air everyone breathes.  Read more...

The Designs of Science - Cardinal Christoph Schonborn

In July 2005 the New York Times published my short essay "Finding Design in Nature." The reaction has been overwhelming, and not overwhelmingly positive.  Read more...

The dispute between Galileo and the Catholic Church - Donald DeMarco

The conflict between the Church and Galileo was not between a progressive scientist and a backward clergy, or between a blameless individual and an authoritarian Church. This paper is an attempt to examine the pertinent ideas, issues, and personalities in the Galileo affair and by trying to understand these, shed some light on what was at the very heart of the dispute between Galileo and the Catholic Church.   Read more...
