Dear Friends of the Kolbe Center,
In his Apology for Religious Orders, St. Thomas Aquinas made a statement that ought to be written in the sky above every Catholic university and seminary in the world:
Human wisdom is always set up in opposition to the Divine wisdom, when men consider human learning to be paramount in importance, and when they endeavor to make the truths of faith subservient to the teaching of human sciences. This error is the origin of all heresy (Apology for Religious Orders, Chapter V, reply to Objection vii).
One of the great strengths of our new DVD series "Foundations Restored" is that it exposes the history of the exaltation of human science above Divine Revelation. That the series accomplishes this feat successfully is reflected in the unsolicited comments that have been left on the Foundations Restored website. Please read those comments, pasted below, and encourage your Catholic friends and relatives to go to www.foundationsrestored.com where they can view the first two episodes of the DVD series gratis.
I watched the stream version and had to purchase the DVD version also, so I can share this and also use it as a training tool for both CCD classes and for those challenging conversations I have with others in life and at work when they embrace the brainwashing and blind faith in theories that have been proven incorrect time and time again. The structure of the series does very well using documented science to show the theories wrong and also not only [exposes] the errors but where the errors come from and why they were promulgated. Overall rating "Outstanding" and I cannot recommend this enough. It gives the Truth seeker a very good foundation to build upon when combating the modern man mentality built upon deceit.
God Bless, Viva Cristo Rey!
And from Australia:
Having watched all the videos, this series is not a bunch of crazy fundamentalists pushing the creationist line. This video series uses proven science, philosophy and theology to bring the evolutionary hypothesis to its knees. A very well researched and presented series. I have recommended Foundations Restored to a number of Catholics.
Our poor school children have been sold a lie and indoctrinated, all part of a plan to dumb-down our thinking and to view humans as just another species to be disposed of at will. In other words, nothing special about human creation. Well this series is convincing and a perfect educational tool to re-wire the thinking of many who have fallen prey to the Cartesian-Darwinian lie.
Great work from the team and thank you for swimming against the tide and for giving us a treasure. I loved the series that I ordered both the streaming and hard copy version. Do not hesitate to buy, watch and share Foundations Restored.
And, finally, here is a testimony from a viewer who persuaded a trained geneticist, biologist, and geologist to watch the series:
APTLY NAMED, FOR RESTORING FOUNDATIONS IS EXACTLY WHAT IT DOES.
I have heard many of the arguments in this excellent presentation before, but never so completely, so thoroughly - even astonishingly - presented. I've asked a trained geneticist, biologist, and geologist to view the program. All acknowledged Foundations Restored as completely accurate and reliable in its presentations, with the geologist noting newfound discomfort at beliefs he has long held.
How good is this? I've long had problems accepting the "6,000 year" biblical history.
I don't, anymore. The arguments supporting the Christian Origin Story are highly credible - from a *scientific* perspective. More so than I ever would have believed.
I've recommended that my parish incorporate this series into their RCIA program. If you have not heard these arguments before, get ready for an eye-opening experience that may very well change the way you view the world, it is that compelling.
It is a tour de force. Your entire family should watch this presentation, together. Because it is phenomenal.
With gratitude for your prayers and financial support, without which we would never have been able to produce "Foundations Restored."
Yours in Christ through the Immaculata in union with St. Joseph,
P.S. Please let us know if you are interested in attending our leadership retreat in the first week of August at the S.O.L.T. retreat center in Corpus Christ, Texas, and especially if you are interested in helping us to produce a play with the young people who attend the retreat on the life of Venerable Maria of Agreda, the "Blue Nun." We also plan to produce a series of videos for young people between the ages of 5 and 12 on the doctrines of Genesis 1-11, so please let us know if you would be interested in that project as well.
P.P.S. Thanks to Kolbe leadership team member Tim Haughery, we now have a handy, attractive one-page flyer to promote the DVD series. Just go to this link on the website www.foundationsrestored.com to download the flyer and give it to anyone who might be open to viewing the first two episodes.
