    Well done Rationalist 1! Your posts on that blog are an artful critique of what is little more than special pleading and unwarranted flights of fancy.

    If the Two Catholic Men could provide us with a falsifiable proposition that we could then test, then I would begin to listen. Otherwise...just a lot of huff and puff.

    Cheers...Martin

    1. Martin. Thank you.

      I think it not only does a disservice to modern science and scientists when religious people try to graft on their particular beliefs to what ever words are popular in science now but if they thought about it, it's also demeaning to religion as it cause people to see religion as fickle and changing based upon the last paper if Physical Review.

      While theologians and philosophers love co-opting relativity (morphs into relativism) and quantum indeterminacy and mystery (as these author's did) the new plan in physics if to give new discoveries names than no theologian would want to associate with. As far as I know no theologians want to align his or her theology with dark energy or dark matter. But if they gave it a more upbeat name (let's say universal energy or all permeating matter) everyone would seek to embrace it and make it an example of the divine that religious people anticipated centuries before science got around to discovering it.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
