2018_10 18 Science and Faith

A lot of people think the Church is ascientific—but it’s actually quite the opposite. In fact, some of the greatest scientific achievements of all time are directly owed to the Catholic Church. On this episode of The Catholic Talk Show, the guys discuss some groundbreaking scientific achievements and contributions of the Catholic Church.

I am now on my third reading of a fascinating book, “The Genesis of Science”, by James Hannam.

Hannam shows how the emergence of what we call “science” did not spring from the foreheads of a few Renaissance geniuses who managed to somehow overcome to oppressive Catholicism of the Middle Ages.

Rather, those geniuses built on the steady progression of developments by brilliant thinkers during the Middle Ages who had been educated at Catholic monasteries and universities. Continue reading

Reading Is Good for Your Brain

2018_05 keep calm and love reading

Scientific studies have found that reading is good for you.

Reading fiction helps you be more open-minded. The same brain regions are activated when you experience something in real life as when you get into the heads of characters and imagine walking in their shoes.

Reading protects against cognitive decline. “Use it or lose it” applies to your thinking ability. Reading is exercise for your brain. Continue reading

What’s a Greater Leap of Faith: God or the Multiverse?

I don’t understand how any serious scientist can buy into the Multiverse theory. Energy cannot be created. How can they believe in an infinite number of energy-rich universes when they can’t explain where the energy in OUR universe came from?

As for the idea that my choice to go to one college rather than another or marry one man rather than another somehow spawned a NEW UNIVERSE is beyond ridiculous. I admit that I enjoy sci fi episodes based on the idea, but only because I like watching actors play their evil twins. I’m not dumb enough to think they’re anything but FICTION.

It’s not rocket science

In fact, it’s just third grade science, the time when kids start learning about photosynthesis. 

CO2 and photosynthesis

CO2 is not a pollutant.  It’s a NUTRIENT!  This is why growers buy CO2 GENERATORS for their greenhouses — they maximize growth!

Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses. 

Plants benefit most from CO2 when the PPM (parts per million) of CO2 in the air is between 1000 and 1500. Ambient PPM of CO2 is usually about 300 PPM.

2017 Al Gore's failed prediction

Any elementary school student who paid attention during the lessons on photosynthesis would know that Al Gore’s “inconvenient truth” is really Al Gore’s Big Fat Lie.  Why the teachers don’t is the question.

The fact that schools show “An Inconvenient Truth” to the same kids who are learning about photosynthesis reminds me a lot of another of the Left’s bizarre educational oxymorons — i.e., the kids who study the wonders of human fetal development are also taught that abortion  just removes “an undifferentiated clump of cells.”

Debunking the 97% Climate Lie

Fossil Fuel Use is Good for Humans

Climate activists want to make the vast majority of fossil fuel use illegal.  To justify this poverty-inducing plan, they repeat the lie that 97% of climate scientists agree with them.

TRUE:  Climate scientists DO agree that there has been a global warming trend over the past 150 years.  Some of them even concede that human beings have contributed to it.

HOWEVER, the warming trend has been tiny (0.8 degrees C), it started before the rise of man-made CO2, and it has abated in recent years even as CO2 levels have continued to rise.

1850-2012 Global temps and CO2

LIE:  The “97% of climate scientists believe we should restrict fossil fuels” lie was invented by a guy who wants to limit fossil fuel use.  He did it by cherry picking a bunch of climate papers and falsely reporting that 97% of them agreed with him.

According to the article linked below, far from going full on Al Gore about fossil fuel use, only a relative handful of the cherry picked papers even endorse the view that human emissions of greenhouse gases are more than 50% responsible for the small amount of warming we’ve seen over the past 150 years.

The author quotes one of the scientists whose papers were included in the bogus survey. He reported that only 10 of his 122 eligible papers had been included, nine of which were rated incorrectly as to what he really said.
