Science never talks about mind and soul—and if it does it has no nice words to say about them. So how can a Catholic scientist speak about “a beautiful mind and soul”? Well, he does so as a Catholic who knows that science has nothing to say about mind and soul, but also that science has nothing to say against it.
I want to show this with a rather unusual format by using a lively, conversational dialog: an exchange between a skeptical scientist (S) and a religious scientist (R). The skeptical scientist interrogates the religious scientist with very penetrating questions. And the answers given will hopefully and ultimately clear the way to become appreciative of the beautiful mind and soul that all of us were given.
You will find out in this book that there is definitely still room left for religion next to science, that there is still room left for the soul in addition to the body, that there is still room left for the mind along with the brain, that there is still room left for a moral code over personal likes and dislikes, and that there is still room left for the soul transiting from earth to heaven. Religion keeps having it all right.
