Historical Evidence for Dinosaur and Human Co-existence by Garrett Dupre “God made the beasts of the earth[…] and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and[…] God created man[.] And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” – Genesis 1:25-31 Did dinosaurs and humans ever live contemporaneously? Certainly. The Book of […]
There is growing scientific evidence that the human genome is rapidly degenerating due to mutation accumulation (the term “genome” means all of a person’s genes combined). This is supported by papers by several world-famous population geneticists. The fact that humanity is genetically degenerating due to mutation accumulation amounts to “evolution going backwards”, and is the anti-thesis of Darwinian thought.
Orestes Brownson (1803-1876) was one of the greatest Catholic apologists in the history of the United States–some would say the greatest. A convert to the Catholic Faith, Brownson entered the Church after having earned a stellar reputation as an original writer and thinker, a member of the intellectual circle that included Ralph Waldo Emerson and […]

In God’s Providence, the Kolbe Center was incorporated on the feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, in the Jubilee Year 2000. This date—selected by government workers in Richmond, Virginia—could not have been more appropriate for several reasons. It has long been a principle of traditional Catholic philosophy, with its roots in the philosophy of […]
If . . . evolution is truly much more than a theory or hypothesis… if “it is a general condition to which all theories, all hypotheses, all systems must bow and which they must satisfy henceforth if they are to be thinkable and true,” then evolution must be found in Christ. If, however, it is not found in Christ, then it is not possible. The ancient saying of the Fathers comes to mind … “What is not taken up by Christ is not redeemed by Christ.” If evolution cannot be found in Christ, then it is not redeemable and should be discarded as a work of the spirit of antichrist.
Lack of experience diminishes our power of taking a comprehensive view of the admitted facts. Hence, those who dwell in intimate association with nature and its phenomena grow more and more able to formulate, as the foundations of their theories, principles such as to admit of a wide and coherent development: while those whom devotion […]
