Science and Belief, originally delivered by the distinguished Dr. Peter Hodgson in Oxford, explains that the Catholic mindset is the cause of the advancement of science throughout history.  The theology of the Catholic Church encourages the ideas that that the world is good, that it could have been other than it is, and that it is apprehensible by the human mind—ideas which are necessary for the health of the sciences.
