What makes the U.S. Constitution legitimate is Americans' faith that the constitutional system can be made 'a more perfect union.' Balkin argues that the American constitutional project is based in hope and a narrative of shared redemption, and its destiny is still over the horizon.

Chris Baglow’s book, the title of which is Faith, Science, and Reason, has come out at last, and I urge anyone who is interested in Catholic education to buy and read it.

Science is like a hungry furnace that must be fed logs from the forests of ignorance that surround us. In the process, the clearing that we call knowledge expands, but the more it expands. If God doesn't exist, then faith and science will contradict since science is the search for facts about the cosmos.

For those with faith, however, science can be one of our greatest forms of worship. Science is mankind's attempt to understand how the world works.

The scientific method is one of the greatest tools to accomplish this. It starts.

Instead of fearing scientific discovery, Jack Collins believes that Christians should delight in the natural world and study it. God's truth will stand against any challenge and will enrich the very scientific studies that we fear.

Collins first defines faith and science, shows their relation. The current blood feud between religious science-deniers and New Atheist religion-bashers sells a lot of books.
