New Podcast – “Faith, Hope & History with Fr. Bill”
How and why the Catholic Church is NOT against Science.
“Following ‘the Science'” is a common invocation asserted by many as a one-upmanship to those who profess particularly a Christian faith; as if those of a deep faith are closed to accepting “the science.” More often than not the Church’s conflict with Galileo is invoked as a demonstration of how the Catholic Church and the Christian Faith is hostile to Science. Fr. Bill discusses the issue, demonstrating that the opposite is true. Not only does Christianity, and in particular Catholicism, have no problem with Science, but it is because of the Christian Faith, and in particular the Catholic Church, that Science and scientific studies were able to grow and flourish in the West.
Join Fr. Bill as he talks about the how Christianity and the Judeo-Christian worldview paved the way for the growth of Science, and how the Catholic Church fostered such studies. He will even name a few priests and bishops who were pioneers in many of the modern fields of scientific study. Some of them may surprise you!
