Go to: The Dawkins Challenge

Dawkins and Krauss would first have to see that there is more to what we know about the world than what the natural sciences tell us.

This seems to imply that Dawkins and Krauss do not see that there is more to what we know about the world than what the natural sciences tell us. However, I am sure that these two gentlemen would be the first to admit that science does not have all the answers. Science does, however, provide us with more and better answers about reality than religion ever has or ever could. Furthermore, science is not beyond "changing its mind" in the face of new evidence. This attitude is integral to science but it is not at all integral to religion; least of all catholicism.

putting education under the control of those who know little, if anything about teaching learning is mind boggling. that these people are parents, businessmen, and bureaucrats is frightening.

Go to: Should Depressed People Avoid Having Children?

Net's Avatar Jump to comment 8 by Net

actually, in this day and age of over-population, and all that that means, i'm not sure why people have children. i'd have thought that if they wanted a family, they'd be doing everybody a favour by adopting.

Dr Gaillardetz says the Church's leaders fear that essential elements of Catholic identity are being challenged.

I presume that among the essential elements of Catholic Identity are homophobia and misogyny, and you'd have to question why ever they'd want to hold on to those.
