One of my pet peeves is the whole 'the Church is anti-science' lie. The Church was the biggest supporter of science for centuries!
Did you know that the Catholic Church made many scientific discoveries possible?
On this episode of The Catholic Talk Show, Ryan Scheel, Fr. Rich Pagano, and Ryan DellaCrosse discuss “Groundbreaking Scientific Achievements of Catholic Scientists“.
“A lot of people think the Church is [against] science—but it’s actually quite the opposite. In fact, some of the greatest scientific achievements of all time are directly owed to the Catholic Church”
The guys discuss these topics:
- The Big Bang
- The Benedictine monk who invented the electric motor, and how Benjamin Franklin took credit for the invention
- The Franciscan Friar who gave us the scientific method
- The first woman/nun to get a Ph.D. in computer science
- The Augustinian Father of Genetics
- “The Jesuit Science”
