Since coming home to the Catholic church this past Easter from Protestantism my faith has grown tremendously, Praise God. Suprisingly, the ups and downs I used to have with reguard to my thirst for knowledge has remained strong and constant and I hope this doesn’t end. My question is reguarding one of the Catholic home study courses I saw advertised in Envoy Magazine. It was a set of Catholic Philosophy courses by the St. Augustine Institute for Catholic Studies. I looked at the St. Augustine Institutes website and since the new one is under construction and the old is a little confusing I want to be sure that they are an orthodox and reputable organization. And if possible do you have any comments on the quality of their home study courses?
The main thing that threw me on thier website was that they seem to agree with the fundamentalist view of creation (the world is ~ 6000 yrs old), and from my understanding the Chuch has not taken a definative stance on creation vs. evolution except that Catholics are obliged to believe in a literal Adam and Eve and Original Sin. Thank you for your time and I apologize for the length.
