A thought on the faith of the scientist
"The scientist's condition as a sentinel in the modern world, as one who is the first to glimpse the enormous complexity together with the marvellous harmony of reality, makes him a privileged witness of the plausibility of religion, a man capable of showing how the admission of transcendence, far from harming the autonomy and the ends of research, rather stimulates it to continually surpass itself in an experience of self-transcendence which reveals the human mystery".
- Pope John Paul II, 7/17/85.
Which scientific field, space, geography, medicine, technology?
Jesuit priest, Guy Consolmagnol has done several books, lives in the Vatican Observatory, and has been on the "Colbert Report". I'm kinda a fan of him.:). vaticanobservatory.org/index.php/en/research/research-highlights/cat-planetary-sciences.
There are fertility catholic doctors who maintain catholic values and still practice medicine. Gosh, our parish even had a former Airforce pilot convert to a priest. From my understanding part of a priests education should focus on some sciences. Many take psychology classes to help them.
