Were the Middle Ages dark for science? Did the pope say
Darwin was right? From the Big Bang to Galileo, from the origins of life
on Earth to the existence of life on other planets, The Catholic Church
and Science clears away the fog of falsehood and misunderstanding to
reveal a faith whose doctrines do not contradict the facts of science,
but harmonize with them and a universe whose uncanny order and precision
point not to chance assemblage by random forces, but to the
purpose-built design of an intelligent creator.
Author Ben Wiker (The Darwin Myth, A Meaningful World) takes on the
most common errors that modern materialistic thinkers, convinced that
faith and science must be mortal enemies, have foisted into popular
culture. With great learning, clarity, and wit he tackles stubborn
confusions many people have about the relationship between Christianity
especially Catholicism and the empirical sciences, and separates truth
from lies, the factual from the fanciful.
