THE CATHOLIC FAITH AND MODERN SCIENCE
Are faith and science opposed to each other? Do miracles matter? Can physics explain creation without a creator? What is consciousness? Does evolution contradict the faith? Join us for an online course taught by theoretical particle physicist and president of the Society of Catholic Scientists, Dr. Stephen Barr, as we explore these questions and many more!
February 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, March 2nd 7-8:30.
In these lectures Prof. Barr will show that the widespread idea that faith and science are opposed to each other is based on serious misconceptions about the history of science, about what the Catholic Church teaches, and about what science has actually discovered about the world. In the first lecture, he will show how fundamental Catholic beliefs about God dovetail with the basic assumptions of science. In the second lecture, he will show how the Catholic Church, Catholic clergy, and Catholic lay people powerfully contributed to the founding and development of science. In the third lecture, he will discuss the beginning and creation of the universe from the viewpoint of both Catholic theology and modern cosmology. In the fourth lecture, he will show that the idea of the human “spiritual soul” is not in conflict with modern science. In the final lecture he will show how the idea of biological evolution is perfectly consistent with a Christian conception of the universe.
