The Amazing Discoveries of Catholic Scientists: 6 Groundbreaking Achievements

One of my pet peeves is the whole 'the Church is anti-science' lie. The Church was the biggest supporter of science for centuries!

From ChurchPOP

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”

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
