More Sober Than Science

 I just finished another book on Kindle, which I would heartily recommend to any dear Catholic who suffers an occasional twinge of insecurity, embarrassment or inferiority in the face of "SCIENCE" and its know-it-all shamans:

The Catholic Church and Science 
Answering the Questions, Exposing the Myths 
Benjamin Wiker 
TAN Books 
Charlotte, North Carolina, 2011
Kindle Edition.

Wiker goes about facing and handling just about any challenge you can imagine to the intellectual credentials of the Catholic Church over history. He does so succinctly, clearly and in his familiar "university prof" tone, also drawing on the Catechism of the Catholic Church to show that serious science has little to fear from the Catholic Church. The book would be a positive contribution to the reading list for any university student and, for all of us who didn't use our study years to the maximum, offers a manageable way to improve our performance on certain topics at cocktail  and dinner parties.

I can recommend the book to those who are looking for a sure source for answers to questions regarding evolution, Big Bang theories, or the existence of ET's and the possibility of inter-galactic travel outside of your favorite neighborhood movie theater.
