The Purposeful Universe with Dr. Dan Kuebler

The Purposeful Universe with Dr. Dan Kuebler

October 23, 2020
Dr. Dan Kuebler joins me on the program to discuss a new series he is doing with the Magis Center. Dr. Dan Kuebler is a Molecular and Cell Biologist and the Dean of Applied Science at Franciscan University of Steubenville. For the campaign, Dr. Kuebler explains the intricate interplay of order and chance propelling evolution and the purpose that this order implies. The campaign is the first in what the Magis Center hopes will be an ongoing series aimed at exploring the wonder of the cosmos and the mystery of the human person.
 

In our video we discuss what evolution is and is not, how the universe has order and nothing is by chance, and Aquinas and the contingency argument for God's existence. It is an informative discussion with a great scientist about our origins.

Defending the Sacrament of Marriage with Fr. Sebastian Walshe

Defending the Sacrament of Marriage with Fr. Sebastian Walshe

August 10, 2020

Fr. Sebastian Walshe spends some time with me this week to discuss strengthening and defending marriage. He is part of Saint Michael's Abbey in Orange County, California. Learn more about the Abbey and the amazing Abbot's circle at https://www.theabbotscircle.com/

This exclusive Abbot's Circle video series is led by Fr. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem., who is also the author of the recent book, "Understanding Marriage & Family: A Catholic Perspective". The understanding of marriage and family in western culture has changed significantly in the past 30 years. What used to be taken for granted is now challenged and even rejected. The first series in this course of videos will consider the meanings of the terms ‚Äúmarriage‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúfamily‚ÄĚ and will answer modern objections to the traditional definitions of marriage and family. Among other things, the course will consider the foundations of marriage and family in human experience and human nature. In a second series, the course will cover marriage as a sacrament, that is, insofar as God has revealed truths in sacred Scripture about marriage and family. Finally, in a third series, the course will give practical advice to Christian couples about how to live a flourishing family life. During a time when U.S. marriage rates have plummeted to the lowest in recorded history, and marriage and the family is under attack -- it's important for Catholics to be educated, enlightened, and knowledgeable on issues of faith, marriage and the family, and this series seeks to be a catalyst during this time in our world.
