Today's excerpt..

You believe that God is one.
You do well.
Even the demons believe that and tremble.
Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without works is useless?

The Passionist Nuns of Whitesville. Please visit the website of the Cloistered Passionist Nuns of Whitesville, Kentucky. They will remember you seven times a day in prayer if you but ask. Take a mini-"retreat" on their web space by viewing their pages on Our Mother of Sorrows, their E-books/Meditations and more. I also recommend a visit to their new vocation blog called In The Shadow Of His Wings.

Evolution. Is it realistic?

Lately, it is becoming more and more clear to me that the theory of evolution is not something realistic people would buy if they were to hear the scientific case for it. I am an intelligent person and I have been sincerely seeking the answers to legitimate questions about the theory of evolution. Disappointment has been the order of the day since I have found otherwise intelligent biology scholars are unable to provide a reasonable explanation of evolution while taking it as Gospel for themselves.

What I am going to share with you now is my layman's understanding of the concept as described to me by some who advocate it as fact. There are different schools of thought regarding evolution within the Catholic Church. For detailed information on the traditional Catholic perspective, I recommend interested persons consult the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation.

You know, I was going to explain my understanding of evolution as it was explained to me by the biology scholars, but I am still so darned confused that I can't. So, just head on over to the Kolbe Center if you want to learn more. My brain hurts.
