Do science teachers today really teach magic, and are scientists today just the latest manifestation of court magicians? Can anything they say today about the big questions of existence be substantially proved?
Once upon a time Philosophy - the quest for truth - was one science, involving both the knowledge of material things and the causes of material things. The heresy of Modernism split these two sciences apart and set them against each other, and at odds with each other, and no longer complimentary or working in partnership. Over time the original quest for truth became the unrelated and increasingly antagonistic fields of,
So Modernism, born of the so-called Enlightenment, was a sort of Tower-Of-Babel event, fracturing clear thinking, alienating and setting thinking men against each other. Just as the Protestant Reformation permanently broke Christian unity apart and set the parts against each other, Modernism broke real science apart, and set the parts against each other.
Based on what?
Certainly not anything based on real science, or on any application of the scientific method.
Let's look at the quasi-religion or strictly faith-based belief of Darwinism.
The most interesting thing about it, besides its almost universal acceptance everywhere on earth, is how no speciation event has ever been observed by man, or found in the fossil record. And how the species do not change.
A speciation event is when "mutants" of a species can reproduce themselves, but may no longer interbreed and successfully reproduce with the parent species they mutated from; in essence, it is the birth of a new species.
But there has never been one.
We talked about this in the Origin of Species page. Darwinism, every bit of it, is conjecture, not real science. It is Scientism; it is a popular opinion among credentialed scientists who share contempt and animosity toward Genesis, and nothing more. They have to deny genetic entropy to accept Darwinism, and they do.It is the commonly held theory of a class of TTRSTF4 who insist that new species "evolved" either GESGOEAEOT2 , or through the PEWAG3 process of mass-mutation.
But they cannot prove either theory. They believe it by faith alone. And they believe it so strongly as to actually be religious fanatics rather than scientists.
Let's look at the purely faith-based belief in billions of years of time.
Look at the purported Mesozoic, Paleozoic, Jurassic, etc., etc., etc., imaginary eras of paleontology. How do we know, scientifically, that there have been "billions and billions" of years of existence?
Certainly not by radiocarbon dating, which, with it's own flaws, can only measure thousands of years, and not even tens of thousands.So what scientific method do all of TTRSTF4 use to scientifically prove existence beyond thousands of years?
Going beyond the half-life of carbon-14 means using other less trustworthy and calculable elements, and using a mass spectrometer to help guess the age of material based on a fixed decay rate of an isotope into another isotope, while determining the ratio between original and decayed material, to come up with the best (and most popular) scientific wild assed guess.
This ain't science. I don't care how they couch it in scientific language and how expensive and exotic the lab and equipment are, this ain't real science.
The only thing that seems really scientifically valid about any of it is the fact that they are measuring decay, always, and never the opposite. Wherever you look, you will find nothing building up, or getting more complex, or improving. Everything is decaying, breaking down, deteriorating and decomposing. Including life, and all life forms.
It is the opposite of evolution; it is devolution.
Entropy is the stubbornly ignored elephant in the scientific laboratory.
It may be argued that the faithful Billions-and-billions-ers would have better served science by studying the not so mysterious mystery of the hexameron.
Entropy and Catholicism agree that existence, like each one of us, has a life span. Of course, today, many "Catholics" have become Darwinists, and Billions-and-billions-ers, while still thinking themselves Catholics.
Marxism, demon of Satan that it is, loves the Darwinism and Billions-and-billions faith systems, because they "prove", in weak minds, the non-existence of God, and provide the excuse to abandon the Commandments and the highest morality of human civilization. Thus may God be removed from the mind of man, and thus may man be fooled and put in charge of his own destruction. All Marxists are Darwinists, and pseudo-scientific materialists. Darwin's billions of years have been commandeered and weaponized by Marxism.How many of TTRSPTF5 have stood before some beautiful geological point, like the rim of the Grand Canyon, and waxed on and on about how all the layers of rock strata were laid down over millions and millions of years, with nothing to back any of that up other than what others have been saying about it since long before he was born?
How many biology teachers have waxed on and on about how this particular species is certain to have evolved from something kind of sort of like that one, which itself is certain to have evolved from something kind of sort of like that other one?
How many Catholic Priests and Nuns have taught Darwinism, and Billions-and-billions-ism, quite seriously?
Here's the absolutely unavoidable bottom line:
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Pray for a strategic collaboration between Abp. Vigano and Trump.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
