The Catholic Church is anti-Science


Sr. Mary Kenneth Keller, BVM, PhD

She didn't get it by tweeting and posting Likes.  More about her here.

Fray Gregor Mendel, Augustinian FRAYLE, Father of Genetics

Msgr. Georges Lemaître, Belgian priest, astronomer and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Louvain. He was the first person to propose the theory of the expansion of the Universe, widely misattributed to Edwin Hubble.

Athanasius Kircher, SJ, father of Egyptology

Blessed Nicolas Steno
Danish Catholic bishop and scientist and a pioneer in both anatomy and geology

And let us ask the perpetual numb nuts about his allegations about the Catholic Church's "anti-science doctrine"


Such a genius.

Would you even trust this joke with giving you a lesson about Philippine history when he cannot even distinguish who is the real villain in a fictional novel?

  1. just in case anti-Catholics might conveniently forget: the Vatican Observatory (Specola Vaticana) is still operating in Castelgandolfo with research branches in Arizona. Please read "Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist" by Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ. He is the curator of the Vatican's meteorite collection. Dr. Consolmagno earned his bachelor of science in 1974 and master of science in 1975 in Earth and Planetary Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his Ph. D. in Planetary Science from the University of Arizona in 1978. From 1978-80 he was a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer at the Harvard College Observatory, and from 1980-1983 continued as postdoc and lecturer at MIT. He has also spent several terms as a visiting scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and as a visiting professor at Loyola College, Baltimore, and Loyola University, Chicago.
