| Lecture 3 of the Harmony in Faith and Science lecture series |

As long as humans have been trying to make sense of the universe, they have been proposing cosmological theories. From angels and demons to photons and quarks, we’ve always been curious about how the universe works. But every cosmology, from materialism to Catholicism, is based on assuming things that we may not even realize we are assuming things we take on faith. And so our cosmologies can be as fun and quirky as the people who invented them! We’ll look into the stories behind how St. Paul, St, Augustine, Galileo and Kepler and Newton, and on up to Stephen Hawking, have all cast their own peculiar take on the big questions of the universe.
