Christianity is faith in the Creator Spiritus, from whom comes everything that is real. Precisely this ought to give Christianity its philosophical power today, since the problem is whether the world comes from an irrational source, so that reason would be nothing but a "by-product" (perhaps even a harmful by-product) of the development of the world, or whether the world comes from reason, so that its criterion and its goal is reason. The Christian faith opts for this second thesis and has good arguments to back it up, even from a purely philosophical point of view, despite the fact that so many people today consider the first thesis the only "rational" and modern view. A reason that has its origin in the irrational and is itself ultimately irrational does not offer a solution to our problem. Only that creative reason which has manifested itself as love in the crucified God can truly show us what life is. Christianity and the Crisis of Cultures (Ignatius Press, 2006), Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI, p. 49 A Designer Universe: Chance, Design, and Cosmic Order Michael W. Tkacz In an effort to illustrate how natural development in the physical universe works, Canadian philosopher Charles De Koninck gives the following example. A duck hunter, wishing to bring down a duck in the most efficient way, uses a shot gun that produces a random scattering of many pellets. It only takes one pellet of shot, hitting a vital spot, to bring down a duck and any one of the many pellets fired will do. Indeed, the hunter prefers fewer rather than many pellets hit the duck—ideally only one. Yet flying ducks move pretty fast and he wants to be sure of a hit. So, by design, he cultivates a random distribution of bird-shot...

It does so when it perceives that some Catholics accept as true a scientific theory that denies some important Christian teaching about man and his origins... READ MORE Finding Design in Nature Cardinal Christoph Schönborn "Ever since 1996, when Pope John Paul II said that evolution (a term he did not define) was 'more than just a hypothesis,' defenders of neo-Darwinian dogma have often invoked the supposed acceptance - or at least acquiescence - of the Roman Catholic Church when they defend their theory as somehow compatible with Christian faith. But this is not true..." READ MORE On the Square - First Things Stephen M. Barr The Rev. George Coyne, S.J., director of the Vatican Observatory, has a penchant for theologically risqué statements. In a recent talk he asked, about life’s origins, “Do we need God to explain this? Very succinctly, my answer is no.” Well, very succinctly, that is absurd.... READ MORE The Design of Evolution Stephen M. Barr Catholic theology has never really had a quarrel with the idea that the present species of plants and animals are the result of a long process of evolution—or with the idea that this process has unfolded according to natural laws...
