What others are saying about CAINA's presentations

Contrary to the prevailing myth of a conflict between science and faith, this presentation covers “the rest of the story” regarding the actual scientific evidence of God’s existence, mostly presented on video by scientists themselves. This apologetics presentation dispels doubts, strengthens faith, and provides important information for sharing with those who may doubt the existence of God. This presentation is especially valuable for preparing or equipping middle school, high school, and college students for challenges to faith they are facing or will likely face, especially in college.

Most people find they need to answer for themselves and in discussions with others the question: “Does God exist?” To help answer this “big question,” this multimedia presentation presents compelling scientific evidence of God’s existence from cosmology and physics. Contrary to the usual myth of a conflict between science and faith, attendees are excited to learn “the rest of the story” about the actual scientific evidence of God’s existence, mostly presented on video by scientists themselves. This evidence, which God left for science to discover, reveals a cosmos brought into being by a Creator beyond space and time and a universe that is surprisingly finely tuned to be “just right” for life.
As such, this presentation provides an overview of amazing scientific evidence demonstrating God’s existence. This objective evidence of God’s existence helps dispel doubts and strengthen faith, as well as provides persuasive reasons for belief that are valuable for sharing with family and friends who have questions about the existence of God.

This presentation explores the biggest challenge to faith experienced by many people, especially in college. Namely, is Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution compatible with faith in God? Or, does evolution make it possible to be an “intellectually fulfilled atheist” (to quote Oxford Professor Richard Dawkins)? This apologetics presentation covers key Catholic Church teachings on God and evolution, as well the concept of evolutionary creation and the origin of genetic information. While you may not have personal doubts about God’s role in the evolutionary process, this session will provide valuable information for discussion with those who do.

First, we discuss the shortcomings of the commonly accepted view of evolution in academia, which holds that life on earth originated and developed without any divine plan or guidance at all, and how we need both science and religion to get the full truth and complete picture. As such, this presentation next explores the concept of evolutionary creation or theistic evolution, which many people see as a reasonable balance between faith and science. This includes looking at the four types of causes (primary, secondary, intelligent, natural) in order to better understand how evolution could have been God’s method of creation. In short, God is the primary/intelligent cause of the universe and all within it. However, God prefers to work through secondary/natural causes (such as natural selection acting on genetic mutations) in the development of the universe and the evolution of life on earth. In closing, we look at how an intelligent cause is a valid explanation for the genetic information found in DNA.

Compelling evidence from medical studies for the validity of Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) includes: (1) confirmed observations of the physical world during clinical death, (2) meeting previously unknown deceased relatives, (3) blind people see during an NDE, (4) dramatically transformed lives after an NDE, and (5) shared death experiences. These studies affirm traditional Church teaching that human beings have both a body and a soul, and that the soul lives on after death of the body. NDEs also support Church teaching about a loving and just God who wants us to be with Him for all eternity in heaven, as well as the existence of a hellish afterlife. This leads to a greater motivation for learning what the Church teaches about how we can be saved to eternal life in heaven.

This apologetics presentation discusses what the Catholic Church teaches about how we may merit to attain eternal life in heaven though our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus paid the highest price possible through his passion and death to give us the greatest gift possible, namely access to eternal life with God in heaven. God now offers that payment to us as a pure gift―one that we are free to accept or reject. Many New Testament passages are used to help attendees realize we are called to a three-fold response to accept God’s gracious gift of salvation: faith, loving service to God and others, and partaking of the graces offered by the sacraments of the Church―especially the Eucharist.

Many people today consider themselves to be “spiritual” but not “religious.” Surveys show that over half of American adults do not attend church and only about 20 percent of Catholics born after 1970 regularly attend Mass. Surprisingly, about two-thirds of those who do not attend church believe in God and consider themselves to be Christian.

This multimedia presentation helps us respond to this contemporary situation, first by reviewing how we need a supportive Christian community if our faith is to grow and be manifest in our lives. Using Scripture, we next examine how Christ intentionally established his Church and the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist, so he could continue to be present with us for all times. We then look at how the Mass enables us to meet Christ within his community and to find nourishment and strength for a life that is often counter-cultural. By being filled with the very power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, we deepen our relationship with Christ and become more like him.

This unique presentation unravels the importance and historical traditions of the celebration of the Mass and provides valuable information for sharing with family and friends who do not regularly attend Mass.
