Before anyone criticizes the Church for impeding science:
The Big Bang Theory was created and proposed by a Catholic Belgian priest, named Fr. Georges Lemaître.
The Gregorian Calendar was created by Fr. Angelo Secchi, now used today.
We produced the first modern scientific map in 1527.
Fr Nicolas Steno developed the interpretation of rock strata, a fundamental principle in geology.
Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, a French Catholic, developed the first theory of evolution.
Augustinian monk Gregor Mendel founded the science of genetics.
This isn’t even a handful of the stuff that the Catholic Church has provided the world with today. I haven’t even touched the studies of the cosmos, philosophy, education systems, architecture, art, law, language, music; not to mention that they treated women so well even during a time when it was unpopular, because this would be a long, long post.
Nice to know that an older adult woman cannot even handle the fact that a young Catholic girl like myself has a different opinion than she does.
I’ve been de-friended for being Catholic once again.
Well, I encountered some sort of question and answer site of an old classmate from high school.
Someone asked her anonymously why she did not believe in God, and she answered that “I don’t believe in anything that can live in the sky.”
PFFFT. She went to a school where they taught Catholic theology (although, not as good as our brother school, but said brother school was way better in academics than our school in every shape and form), and she’s still so misinformed.
St. Augustine stated that God transcends time and the universe itself. He does not live in the sky.
Every time that I thought differently than the Catholic Church, I was proven wrong, and they were proven right.
Before criticizing the Catholic Church soley for sexual abuse…
look at the public school system first.
