Twelfth issue (April 2007)
It is surprising how easily we forget that the Roman Catholic Church and therefore the Catholic religion have been stimulating scientific reflexion since the beginning of the Renaissance. From this marriage, history has retained mostly the « divorces ». The Renaissance was also the natural reaction against an excess of spirituality, giving birth to abstract concepts without humanity and meaning. It is then not surprising if, today, we are witnessing the opposite, namely the technological and scientific researches that promote philosophical and teleological reflexions due to an excess of pragmatism that kills the mind.

A human being is not only a machine that can be optimized to fit into a system of production, but a mind which requires love, recognition for its own actions and, above all, a being that needs to find his function in the universe. This function, which comes out of a natural process, mankind is far away from being able to control.

A world ready to welcome these values needs no god. Man would find in man what they are constantly seeking elsewhere. Mankind is its own God, it has all the resources needed to allow people to move forward and to better themselves. It is not a mechanical, but a dynamical interaction which is permanently linked. The present within the present and everything visible on its surface is the dead skin of what it has been. It is through this interaction and what we feel that we find our place in the world, even if sometimes the way seems to be long and sinuous.
