    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullWhen I was a child the enlightened nuns in my elementary school taught evolution and maintained that there is no conflict between the truths of science and those of religion I was out of high school before I realized that there are people who believe that the Bible should be taken literallyAbout the same time I started learnin

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullVery good book definitely worth reading Pierre Teilhard de Chardin 1881 1955 Jesuit a brilliant paleontologist and a theologian he would not have claimed to have been a theologian ran afoul of the Jesuit and Catholic hierarchy because of his views on evolution The Church forbade him from publishing his works and to totally silence him exiled him to China in 1922 and made him stay there until the Communist took over China after World War II While there he participated in the discovery of the Peking Man a major discovery that furthered the acceptance of the theory of evolution What a testament God will not be defeatedTeilhard submit

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullProfoundly disappointing Fully half of this book is a basic overview of human evolution that could have easily been cribbed out of any introductory textbook Worse still is that the remaining few chapters actually about Teilhard de Chardin are biography of the most pedestrian type; he went here he met this person he went there he met that person he went on this expedition etc

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullInteresting little book about Tellhard de Chardin a French Jesuit priest and his anthropological work on the Peking Man Picked this up at the books store as it seemed interesting a Jesuit priest working on the bones of an extinct early man I have not heard of de Chardin before but he appears to have been an interesting man a Renascence man if you will At a time when the Catholic Church was very much opposed to the theory of Evolution de Chardin worked hard to reconcile the theory with doctrineThe book outlines de Chardin's childhood and education It talks about Darwin's theory and then about the discovery of Java Man There is also a chapter on the Scopes Monkey TrialDe Chardin was an enthusiastic supporter of all the anthropological work going on in his life and travel to many of the sites and developed friendships with the many anthropologistsHowever he was an embarrassment to the Church in Rome They prohibited him from

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullPicked this up at The Church Mouse resale shop in Sonoma CA figuring to read it on the flight home Actually started it weeks later having been distracted by other textsTried reading Teilhard years ago but found his attempt to correlate evolutionary theory with theology to be unconvincing This book however got me over the hump it being at once a history of paleontology paleoanthropology and evolutionary science and a biography of Teilhard a member of the team which discovered Peking Man Actually the first skull was found by Pei Wenzhong and his team though Teilhard i

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullPierre Teilhard de Chardin was a renowned paleoanthropologist involved in the discovery of the Peking Man fossils during the 1920s and a loyal Jesuit perpetually under suspicion by his order prohibited from publishing any of his writings that sought to reconcile what he understood about science and faith Amir Aczel uses Teilhard's story to portray the significant developments illuminating human evolution during the early part of the 20th century and to ruminate on the complicated uestions these discoveries posed to traditional faith It's a well rounded work competently writtenStill I wasn't so personally engaged with the story Teilhard came across as a fine and admirable person as well as a scientist worthy of his reputation a portrayal that owes uite a lot to Aczel's obvious fondness for him That wasn't enough for me though since I'm not at all invested in the point of interest central to this story about the dilemma of balancing faith and science I

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullI have to agree with an earlier review by Ryan; this book was extremely disappointing First it spent an inordinate amount of time giving a simplistic explanation of Darwin's theory of evolution and how he developed it Once the book turned its attention to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin it offered no than a rudimentary biographical sketch It

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullIf I could give this book another half star I would it's the intriguing biography of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin a real French Jesuit priest and scientist who has no problem reconciling his love of God with the theory of evolution although everyone else in the world seems to have a major problem with it and seems bent on ruining his life just because At times sublime at times utterly infuriating especially if you're a dissenting Catholic who is baffled by arguments that global warming and evolution are just a bunch of fakery cooked up by this weird cult called Science

    Download The Jesuit and the Skull Reader ´ Paperback ↠ Amir d aczel The Jesuit and the SkullI had previously heard the name Pierre Teilhard de Chardin but was only vaguely aware of what he'd done or why he was famous This book filled in all those details I lacked It is a book that talks about his science and his beliefs and his conflicts with the Catholic church and the Jesuit order of which he was a member It portrays him in a very good light; that he was an outstanding scientist and that he was a devout Catholic and a loyal member of the Jesuit order despite how badly he was treated by them Further that he was a man of great rectitude and patiencePierre Teilhard de Chardin was treated abominably by the Catholic church and by his Jesuit order for presenting the evidence for evolution which was at that time not completely accepted by regular society and certainly not by the Catholic church and then showing how science and religion did no
