Weren't the Middle Ages dark for science? Didn't the pope say Darwin was right? Author Benjamin Wiker (The Darwin Myth, A Meaningful World) takes on the most common modern errors from the Big Bang to Galileo, from the origins of life on Earth to the existence of life on other planets, that modern thinkers have foisted into popular culture. The Catholic Church and Science clears away the fog of falsehood that preaches faith and science must be mortal enemies. It proves the doctrines of the Faith and the facts of science are not contradictory, but in fact, harmonize together. The Faith, in union with true science, illustrates a universe whose uncanny order and precision point to the purpose-built design of an intelligent creator. An excellent book separating fact from fancy about the relationship between Christianity especially Catholicism and the empirical sciences.

Many Christians feel that they are being opposed at every turn by what seems to be a well-orchestrated political and cultural campaign to de-Christianize every aspect of Western culture. They are right, and it goes even further back than the Obama Administration.In Worshipping the State: How Government is Replacing Religion, Benjamin Wiker argues that it is liberals who seek to establish an official state religion: one of unbelief. Wiker reveals that it was never the intention of the Founders to drive religion out of the public square with the First Amendment, but centuries of secularists and liberals have deliberately misinterpreted the establishment clause to serve their own ends: the de-Christianization of Western civilization.The result, they hope, is government as the new oracle. Personal faith in a deity is replaced with collective dependence on government, and the diversity of religious practices and dogmas is reduced to a uniform ideological agenda. The strategy is two-pronged: drive religion out of the public square through law and by encouraging popular derision of the faithful; then, in religion’s place, erect the Church of the State to fill the human need for a higher power to look up to.But what was done can be undone. Outlining a simple, step-by-step strategy for disestablishing the state church of secularism, Worshiping the State shows the full historical sweep of the war to those on the Christian side of the cultural battle?and as a consequence of this far more complete vantage, how to win it.
