In my latest Highlights column on CatholicCulture.org I address the furor caused by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn's recent blast against the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. It turns out that the Cardinal's remarks were based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of the term "random" in science and mathematics.
If you're concerned about evolutionary theory, this column is must-reading: Evolution: Thinking Clearly about Randomness
I'd also like to report that we have significantly improved the Catechism portion of our search engine. Originally, both footnotes and headings were returned along with regular Catechism paragraphs, and this was confusing. Now, if a chapter or section heading contains your search word, the entire section is returned. Moreoever, the order of the results is more sensible: sections first, then individual paragraphs, then footnotes.
As we enter Fall and prepare for Advent, please consider Trinity Communications in your end-of-year giving. We continue to need your support. Thanks!
