Free Course: "Looking for the Dark with a Flashlight: Science and the Existence of God" with Dr. Matthew Petrusek

Can a faithful Christian “believe” in science? This class will identifying how Catholic theology emphatically answers “yes!” to this question, while exploring both the possibilities—and limits—of science as a resource for doing theology. As part of our inquiry, we’ll also look at some of the arguments by the so-called “New Atheists” and how Catholic theology can respond.
