The Failure of Darwinism to Explain Morality - Benjamin Wiker

"As an explanation of the world, materialism has a sort of insane simplicity. It has just the quality of the madman’s arguments; we have at once the sense of it covering everything and the sense of it leaving everything out." — G.K. Chesterton  Read more...

The Father of the Green Revolution - Henry I. Miller

Without Norman Borlaug's high-yield agriculture, millions would have starved.  Read more...

The Galileo Affair - George Sim Johnston

Since the Galileo case is one of the historical bludgeons that are used to beat on the Church — the other two being the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition — it is important that Catholics understand exactly what happened between the Church and that very great scientist. A close look at the facts puts to rout almost every aspect of the reigning Galileo legend.   Read more...

The Galileo Code - Scott Walter

If we wanted to add a twentieth-century name to the list of prophets, I would nominate Robert Nisbet (1914-1996), who would not be surprised by recent revelations that an elite group of global-warming experts have been reckless with their "science" and ruthless towards their scientific peers.  Read more...

The Galileo Legend - Thomas Lessl

The extent to which people are mislead by the Galileo legend first began to dawn on me several years ago when I was teaching a doctoral seminar in the history of rhetoric — my own academic field.   Read more...

The Genesis Controversy - GEORGE SIM JOHNSTON

While it may be too early for obituaries, the original theory of evolution, as well as the synthetic theory which has to some extent replaced it, are in serious trouble.  Read more...

The Genesis Problem - Father Robert Barron

I’m continually amazed how often the “problem” of Genesis comes up in my work of evangelization and apologetics.  Read more...

The Heretic - Andrew Ferguson

Who is Thomas Nagel and why are so many of his fellow academics condemning him?  Read more...

The Human Genome in Human Context - Stephen M. Barr

The perceived dangers of genetic research fall into several categories, ranging from the practical to the apocalyptic. At the practical end are issues relating to medical privacy, the insurability of people with genetically identifiable risks for disease, and the use of genetic information to stigmatize or discriminate against individuals or groups.  Read more...

The Humility of Science, the Arrogance of Scientists - Anthony Esolen

I have no intent to demean scientists. I wish merely to see them for what they are, and to see their work for what it is, and to protect the polity from placing too much trust in their unacknowledged priesthood.   Read more...

The Meaning-Full Universe - Benjamin J. Wiker

We are accustomed to characterizing the origin of the universe as an enormous explosion. Perhaps it had more of the character of a flower rapidly unfolding from a densely packed bud, and it is a mere prejudice that keeps us from seeing the evidence before our very eyes.  Read more...

The Mythical conflict between science and Religion - James Hannam

The conflict between science and religion as a hypothesis has been rejected by practically every scholar in the field. Why is there such a rift between academic opinion and popular perception? And what has been the real relationship between science and religion?  Read more...

The Natural History Museum - CATHERINE DALZELL

The greatest danger of evolutionism is that, under its influence, many people find the obvious hard to see.  Read more...

The Papacy and Galileo - Patrick Madrid

Many have unwittingly embraced the myth that Galileo Galilei, a 17th-century Italian astronomer, discovered the heliocentricity of the solar system and, because his discovery conflicted with Catholic teaching, was tortured until he recanted. All this is pure fabrication.  Read more...

The Permanent Limitations of Biology - Leon R. Kass, M.D.

How far can biology take us? Are there limits on what it can know or on what it may enable us to do?  Read more...

The Permanent Limitations of Biology - Leon R. Kass, M.D.

How far can biology take us? Are there limits on what it can know or on what it may enable us to do?  Read more...

The Pope and the Apes - GEORGE SIM JOHNSTON

The Church has no problem with evolution so long as divine causality is not excluded. In October of 1996, Pope John Paul II delivered a message to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences regarding the theory of evolution.  Read more...

The Pope's Astrophysicist - Margaret Wertheim

For close to a quarter century George Coyne has been director and senior scientist at the Vatican Observatory, the Roman Catholic church's beachhead on the shore of astronomical research. A small and energetic man, Coyne is the son of a working class family who is still slightly dazzled to find himself at the epicenter of Catholic life.  Read more...

The Privilege of Life on Earth - Benjamin D. Wiker

Do you think that our Earth is an ordinary planet? Do you think that we have a “commonplace” sun, and live in a run-of-the-mill solar system, in an unremarkable galaxy? If so, think again, advises astrophysicist Guillermo Gonzalez.   Read more...

The Quarrel the Evolutionists Started - Janine Langan

Following Pope John Paul II's 1996 statement that the theory of evolution is “more than just a hypothesis,” newspapers around the world published articles wrongly asserting that the Church had finally come around and withdrawn its opposition to the theory.  Read more...

The Scopes Monkey Trial Revisited - Denyse O'Leary

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. The really interesting part this story is the difference between what actually happened and how the case was presented later, particularly in the stage play and movie, Inherit the Wind.  Read more...

The Staggering Implausibility of What Is - Donald DeMarco

As astrophysicist Sir James Jeans has remarked, "The universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine."   Read more...

The Sun in the Church - J.L.Heilbron

The Catholic Church is portrayed as an institution that has been willing to impose the heavy hand of censorship to suppress scientific freedom. But nothing could be further from the truth. Beginning with the recovery of ancient learning in the twelfth century and continuing through the Copernican upheavals and on even into the Enlightenment, the Roman Catholic Church gave more financial and social support to the study of astronomy - Copernican and otherwise - than did any other institution.  Read more...

Use with CAUTION - Andrea Mrozek

Pink ribbons are well and good. But why aren't people talking about the link between the pill and breast cancer?  Read more...

Vindicated - Donald DeMarco

The courageous man who saw how faith gave birth to science.  Read more...
