Catholic resources for faith science discussion


#1

I’m just passing on some articles related to how the Catholic faith tradition addresses reading Genesis and explores faith and reason in case any of it might be useful in the conversation about God, faith, creation, science, etc.

The first attachment has excerpts from a book by Matthew Pinto called Did Adam and Eve have Belly Buttons?. The sections about creation and evolution begin around maybe question 15 or so and run through question 20-ish.

There’s also an article by an author named George Sim Johnston that has a number of helpful explanations, too, in terms exploring the book of Genesis. (I apologize for any time his tone is rude!): http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/controversy/answering-atheists/how-to-read-the-first-chapter-of-genesis.html

There’s another “How to Read the First Chapter of Genesis” article by this same author (Sim Johnston) in the September 1998 edition of Lay Witness, but I can’t pull up online (I only have a photocopy).
