Human Origins, Theistic Evolution and the Fossil Record – Casey Luskin
Catholic Philosophy and Intelligent Design – Allies or not? – Dr. Jay Richards
We will investigate the relationship between faith and science specifically examining the claims of Darwinian evolution. Since Darwinism claims evolution is random and unguided and the Church says this cannot be true, there is a huge conflict here. Macro-evolution is the foundation doctrine of atheism. Adam and original sin are the foundational doctrine of Christianity. Yet it is frequently denied in Catholic publications and in Catholic schools everywhere while Darwin’s unguided principle is accepted as true.
The Majority of Catholics accept evolution as the explanation for the origin of life whereas the American population does not. This parallels the decline in Catholic faith practice and therefore a significant problem. Catholics need to know the truth about the scientific evidence for design and evolution at this point in history. They can then make an informed decision on who and what to believe about the existence of God and His revelation.
