Member Since
July 2018


I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and went to college just a few blocks from my grade and high school. After getting a Masters in Engineering from U of L, I worked for Lexmark in Lexington for two years. Then, I decided I had better figure out if God wanted me to be a priest by entering a seminary in Minnesota. It turns out the answer was “yes”, as I discovered at my ordination in 2006. Since then, my main priestly duty has been teaching philosophy and theology in Australia. In 2015, I started writing a book on the relationship between religion and science. After 1.5 years of writing and 1.5 years of preparing publication, the book came out in January of 2018!

When you first start investigating a topic, it is necessary to read several books before you are able to discern the different positions taken on that topic and who has the best arguments. This can involve suffering through not a few mediocre books. ...more

“Krauss seems to think that if he describes how one thing comes from another, probing into smaller and smaller things, he will eventually come to nothing at the bottom of it all, as the cause of it all. But talking about how some things come from other things says nothing about how they can come from nothing.”
Paul Athanasius Robinson

“In today’s climate, it is considered to be rational and
scientific when some material cause is ascribed to the origin of life: lightning, molecules on crystals, aliens who came from non-life. Ascribing a non-material cause to life’s origin, such as intelligence, on the other hand, is said to be irrational and unscientific. Intelligence is unintelligence, because only non-intelligence can be intelligent.”
Paul Athanasius Robinson, The Realist Guide to Religion and Science

“With the Chinese and Indians, mythos destroyed
logos; with Aristotle, logos destroyed mythos; with Aquinas, mythos perfected logos. This is no small reason to believe that Aquinas’s mythos was not mythology.”

“Of itself, natural selection is a small strip of explanation. When it is used to account for a little part of the body of reality, it does a fine job. But when it is stretched in an attempt to cover the whole of reality—when it is divinised—things quickly become ridiculous.
It is the very nature of the empiricist enterprise to extend material causes so far beyond their own proper domain that they are trying to cover being itself. That the nakedness of reality remains uncovered by such attempts is all too transparent.”
