Kenrick-Glennon classes to show links of science, theology

Kenrick-Glennon Seminary professor John Finley taught Philosophy of Nature to juniors and pre-theology I students at the seminary.

In some quarters of society, faith and science are considered to be mutually exclusive, akin to oil and water, incompatible with modern life.

One problem with that: It's wrong. The two fit hand in glove.

"Absolutely, they go together," said John Finley, a philosophy professor at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. "Anything legitimately discovered by science can only help in terms of the overall evangelization effort of our Church ... and our understanding of God's creation.

"Since God is the author of it all, of course, it's going to complement what we learn in theology."
