Listers, “faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth.” The opening line of Pope John Paul II’s Fides et Ratio embodies the Catholic belief that faith and reason must be harmonious. Extending that harmony to their various bodies of knowledge, Sacred Doctrine and the empirical sciences must also harmonize. There is only one God. The same God who inspired Holy Scripture is the same God who wrote the laws of reality. The actual way in which they harmonize, however, can be a monumental task at times. SPL has collected 30 quotes that demonstrate the history of Catholicism and evolution, and the list stands as a great exemplar of the dialogue between the Faith and the sciences. And while a meme does not serve to explain the relationship between faith and reason, it can work as a humorous way to dispel caricatural notions of Catholicism being anti-science.
