What is a Good Catholic Science Curriculum?

I get this question a lot. “Can you recommend a good Catholic science curriculum?” Here is my answer. Use a good secular science textbook. Pearson/Prentice Hall and Holt textbooks are my favorite. Teach the scientific fundamentals well. Do not let your child become an adult who never experienced the awe and wonder of science, who never […]

Prescriptive and Descriptive Laws of Physics

If someone asks you what you think of the faith and science dialogue, and the first image that pops into your mind is a tangled puzzle of equations, models, theories, laws, doctrines and dogmas, and you are not quite sure where to begin to sort it all out, then I am about to tell you […]

Fire in the Light of Faith: A Response to Dr. Vincent Torley

Vincent Torley, a philosopher who writes for the intelligent design community at Uncommon Descent, responded to my essay titled, Does Science Prove God Exists? His response, Feet to the Fire: A response to Dr. Stacy Trasancos, addresses a number of different points—particularly the “science in the light of faith” perspective—so I will be as brief as […]

Back to Faith and Science Blogging

Hi, I think I am going to start blogging again, a little. Here are the reasons: I miss the freewheeling (as in riding your bike like you did when you were young) platform to test out ideas and interact with readers. The entrance back into writing, teaching, and researching all started with blogging. I was home […]

Not the Indulgence It Was Before

This is a story from a few years ago. When I asked why the two-year-old was wailing, the five-year-old said, “She is crying because Halloween no longer exists in this house!” Their nine-year-old sister surmised the ghoulish end of Halloween in the Trasancos household because my husband and I nixed trick-or-treating that year. We thought […]

Lessons From the Alpha Female

When I named one of them “Benny” after Pope Benedict XVI, I never expected to get a lesson in faith from the two German Shepherd sister puppies who joined our family last year. We named the jumpy one Pongo. When they look at me, my husband is fond of saying, “Look how much they love you, Honey.” I […]

Have You Heard the Roe Vs Wade Recordings?

I post the audio and transcripts of the Roe vs Wade hearings every year during this week, the anniversary of the legalization of abortion in the United States for all nine months of pregnancy.
