General science and faith
Is scientific reason compatible with religious faith? Is it possible to believe in miracles and also the integrity of nature? How do spiritual realities, such as the soul, fit into the world of matter described by physics and biology? In our modern scientific and technological culture, it is not an option for Catholics to ignore or have a shallow understanding of the relationship between religious faith and scientific knowledge.
Such a lack of understanding limits our ability to spread the Gospel in a world that so needs the Good News of Jesus Christ. Yet this is not a problem limited to young Catholics!
The culture around us accepts the false belief that faith and reason cannot be reconciled, many even believing that science has shown that the Christian faith is irrational. We need the tools to show that both scientific inquiry and the Catholic faith ask questions and seek knowledge about the same universe, working together to come to know the truths of God wherever they may be found.
This book unveils the history of science as something that grew out of, rather than in opposition to, the Catholic faith. Ideal for anyone seeking a greater understanding of the relationship between science and the Catholic faith! To E-mail required invalid. From E-mail required invalid.

Faith, science, and reason : theology on the cutting edge
Published in: Mariano Artigas. In my paper I comment on several points of the encyclical that I consider especially important for a new harmony between science, reason and faith. They refer to scientific realism we will hardly be able to argue in favor of the human capacity to know the truth in the deepest questions if we deny it in natural science ; to the relationship between science, reason and faith analyzing the current scientific world-view rooted on self-organization ; to the search for truth which has a deep anthropological meaning ; to the modalities of truth; to the relationship between truth and belief in order to overcome the false dilemma "authority versus criticism" ; to the unity of knowledge we should resort to philosophy if we want to reach the new unification of knowledge required in our time ; to science and wisdom an organizing principle is needed ; to the assumptions of science and the impact of its progress; to some reflections directed to those who have responsibility of formation in the Church, to philosophers, and to scientists. This program included as basic components an anti-metaphysical and anti-theological attitude, as though the empiricist criterion of meaning would disqualify metaphysics and theology in the name of science. Not that it has been substituted by an adequate perspective. Rather, the "weak thought" so widespread in our days presents as an alternative only local narratives that neither aim at a universal value nor claim for truth.
Traditionally, faith and reason have each been considered to be sources of justification for religious belief. Because both can purportedly serve this same epistemic function, it has been a matter of much interest to philosophers and theologians how the two are related and thus how the rational agent should treat claims derived from either source. Some have held that there can be no conflict between the two—that reason properly employed and faith properly understood will never produce contradictory or competing claims—whereas others have maintained that faith and reason can or even must be in genuine contention over certain propositions or methodologies. Those who have taken the latter view disagree as to whether faith or reason ought to prevail when the two are in conflict. Other thinkers have theorized that faith and reason each govern their own separate domains, such that cases of apparent conflict are resolved on the side of faith when the claim in question is, say, a religious or theological claim, but resolved on the side of reason when the disputed claim is, for example, empirical or logical. Some relatively recent philosophers, most notably the logical positivists, have denied that there is a domain of thought or human existence rightly governed by faith, asserting instead that all meaningful statements and ideas are accessible to thorough rational examination. This has presented a challenge to religious thinkers to explain how an admittedly nonrational or transrational form of language can hold meaningful cognitive content.

Science raises some issues that the church can find difficult or ill-equipped to address. Christians in Science have produced a series of introductory leaflets on these topics that are written by Christians who are professional scientists. They are specifically designed to help Christians that do not have a scientific background understand better the relevant science, and any issues that it presents for the Christian. Each leaflet outlines the basic science behind the topic, how it relates to the Christian biblical understanding of the world and suggests some other resources for those who want to take it further.
The objective of this editorial is to show that a harmonious relationship between science and faith is possible, as exemplified by great saints of the Catholic Church. It begins with the definitions of science and faith, followed by an explanation of the apparent conflict between them. A few saints that constitute an example that a fruitful relationship between these two seemingly opposed realities has been possible are Saint Albert the Great, Saint John of the Cross, Saint Giuseppe Moscati, and Saint Edith Stein, among others, and this editorial highlights their deep contributions to the dialogue between faith and reason. This editorial ends with a brief discussion on whether it is possible to be both a scientist and a man of faith. In the current academic scene, it is quite common to hear of the alleged conflict and incompatibility between science and faith, between being a scientist and being a believer.

Сьюзан Флетчер оказалась в полной темноте. Сьюзан Флетчер нетерпеливо мерила шагами туалетную комнату шифровалки и медленно считала от одного до пятидесяти. Голова у нее раскалывалась.
Нуматака затянулся сигарой умами и, выпустив струю дыма, решил подыграть этому любителю шарад. - Итак, вы хотите продать ключ, имеющийся в вашем распоряжении. Интересно. А что по этому поводу думает Энсей Танкадо. - Я ничем не обязан мистеру Танкадо. Он зря мне доверился.

Ее верхняя губа чуть дрогнула. Стратмор подошел еще ближе. Он хотел прикоснуться к ней, но не посмел.
- Танкадо подумал, что раз мы приостановили действие его страхового полиса, то можем приостановить и его. Постепенно она начала понимать. Время сердечного приступа настолько устраивало АНБ, что Танкадо сразу понял, чьих это рук дело, и в последние мгновения своей жизни инстинктивно подумал о мести. Энсей Танкадо отдал кольцо, надеясь обнародовать ключ.
ГЛАВА 91 В соборе всегда ночь. Тепло дня здесь сменяется влажной прохладой, а шум улицы приглушается мощными каменными стенами.
Стратмор покачал головой. - Это и мне сразу пришло в голову. Но послушай: канадец сказал, что буквы не складывались во что-то вразумительное.
Стратмор полагал, что у него еще есть время. Он мог отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ, мог, используя кольцо, спасти драгоценную базу данных. Да, подумал он, время еще .
- Стратмор обошел фильтры.
