New Post: "Why Catholics should know about science"

Hello all.   60 in NE Pennsylvania yesterday!    Here's a new post, about I'm writing: "Why Catholics should know about science."   It tells why such a book is needed and how I propose to make it effective.   Please comment!

New Post: "Sages, leave your contemplation..."

Hello all!   A new post on The American Catholic:  "Sages, leave your contemplation...", a reflection on the third verse of "Angels from the Realms of Glory", the entrance hymn at our Church today for the Epiphany Mass.

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.
