Catholic Speaker’s Bureau

Bring one of our speakers to your event or parish to present on Science, Reason, & Faith, or Happiness & Suffering.

A chasm of doubt and skepticism separates a most people today from the Church and the richness of its teachings.

The Magis Center of Reason and Faith exists to help millions of souls successfully bridge that chasm. One of the ways that Magis does this is through a bureau of dynamic speakers who present on various areas of intellectual evangelization throughout the United States.

Science, Reason & Faith

Address the mythical conflict between faith and science. Many of our young people (and adults) have come to believe, at least partially, in this secular myth which may be stated as follows: “Faith and science are in conflict; science is truth; therefore, faith must be a fantasy.”

This secular myth does not stand up to the evidence for creation and transcendence from contemporary science. The evidence we present is quite compelling, and can maintain, defend, and even advance the faith of people who may be influenced by this myth.

 

Happiness & Suffering

The topic of Happiness & Suffering is concerned with the second of four pillars of intellectual evangelization, addressing the mythical conflict between suffering and love. Many of our young people (and adults) have come to believe, at least partially, in this secular myth which may be stated as follows: “If God were loving, he would not permit suffering in the world – particularly the suffering of innocent people.

Since there is tremendous suffering, even of the innocent, I must conclude that either God is not loving (in which case, he is not relevant to me), or he does not exist at all.” This secular myth does not stand up to the evidence of human transcendence or a philosophical assessment of happiness, suffering, and love. The evidence we present is quite compelling, and can maintain, defend, and advance the faith of people who may be influenced by this myth.
