Questions and answers on science and faith

Astronomy and Church

In particular, this second blog is an activity that has recently begun at framework as part of the events to commemorate the centenary of the International Astronomical Union and aims to be a place where the different contributions that the Catholic Church has made to Astronomy in Spain throughout history can be centralised.


"A good scientist has to be an atheist", "religion is superstition and goes against science", "everyone knows that the Church has always attacked science because it has been afraid of losing possession of the truth", ... These are some of the erroneous messages about science and faith that have been transmitted to society for decades and that, unfortunately, society has accepted. In order to try to change this scenario in which the message of religion is seen as an obstacle to progress, it is necessary to carry out a series of activities at training and knowledge dissemination which, through reasoned argumentation and the exhibition of realities and facts, allow the aforementioned premises to be dismantled and challenged. It is particularly important to address this subject of activities to young believers and to convey to them the message that a Catholic scientist can fully live his Faith without any subject of contradiction. In this contribution I develop the line of argument of the presentations on the relationship between Science and Faith that I give to young people in parishes and schools of statement of core values , as well as the main experiences and conclusions drawn from them.
