New Post: "The Theology of Water" on Magis Center for Faith and Reason.

Hello all--another new post (actually a rewrite of an earlier one on this blog): "The Theology of Water" on the Magis Center for Faith and Reason web site.

New Post: "Fr. George Rutler's analysis of 'The Innovative Mathematics of Father Antonio Spadaro" on The American Catholic

Hello all!   A new post on The American Catholic: "Fr. George Rutler's Analysis of 'The Innovative Mathematics of Father Antonio Spadaro' ".   In addition to a scathing analysis  of Fr. Spadaro's attempt to supervene logic with feeling, Fr. Rutler gives a very nice account in his Crisis article of what mathematics is all about.   Use the link in the post to go to the Crisis article.

New Post: "Preparing for Easter--50 Devotional Readings by C.S. Lewis"

Hello all.   A new post on The American Catholic: "Preparing for Easter--50 Devotional Readings by C.S. Lewis, Session 1, Ash Wednesday to 18 September.
C.S. Lewis is my favorite Christian apologist.

About Me

My photo

Retired, cranky, old physicist.   Convert to Catholicism in 1995.   Trying to show that there is no contradiction between what science tells us about the world and our Catholic faith.   Intermittent blogs and adult education classes to achieve this end (see http://rationalcatholic.blogspot.com/   and http://home.ptd.net/~rkurland)

Extraordinary Minister of Communion volunteer to federal prison and hospital; lector, EOMC.
Sometime player of bass clarinet, alto clarinet, clarinet, bass, tenor bowed psaltery for parish instrumental group and local folk group.

And, finally, my motivation:
“It is also necessary—may God grant it!—that in providing others with books to read I myself should make progress, and that in trying to answer their questions I myself should find what I am seeking.
Therefore at the command of God our Lord and with his help, I have undertaken not so much to discourse with authority on matters known to me as to know them better by discoursing devoutly of them.”
St. Augustine of Hippo, The Trinity I,8.
