In the Edwards v. Thus, the Court majority ruled that the law failed the Lemon test. Singham sees intelligent design, as did the judge in that case, as merely a clever ploy by creationists to smuggle religion into the classroom. It is not. Intelligent design is based on the observation that the complexity in nature looks contrived. Contrary to Darwinism, which argues that accidental, unintelligent forces are responsible for this complexity, intelligent-design advocates argue that the best explanation for such sublimely interdependent patterns in nature is that they are, indeed, designed.

Intelligent design is truly scientific in that it puts no limits on the search for truth, unlike Darwinism, which permits only naturalistic or materialistic explanations. More importantly, most intelligent-design proponents are not fundamentalists — some are not even Christians. What is lost on Singham, and like-minded individuals, is that restricting the study of origins to naturalistic causes came about due to a theological concern.
The best option, they thought, was to protect God by removing Him from the scene, making Him a distant, deistic god, undiminished by the problems of His own creation.

And so Prof. James Schall, S. Whether they deal with Plato, Augustine, Western secularism, or the Trinity, these essays all ask an important question: What is unique about the mind that is Catholic? Schall answers that this mind is open to the entirety of what is.
Catholics are open to both Athens and Jerusalem, to both reason and revelation. Miracles occur, so we need an understanding of reality open to these occurrences. Schall observes that the secularist mind is shut off to what is. It refuses to grant existence to what it has not willed.

After we have heard the secularist explain everything by reason, including reason itself and its reasonableness, we discover that his sort of humanism is no humanism at all. Yet revelation gives an accurate account of our human condition and of our yearning for happiness. Far from being the death-knell of philosophy, revelation is its reawakening. Augustine inaugurated a new era when he made revelation the starting point for reason, and with him philosophy became receptive to whatever is, from whatever source.
Since then, Catholic thought has preserved theology and philosophy in a mutual openness because when reason wrestles with revelation it strangely becomes more itself, more philosophical.

It develops a sense of a whole that fits together, at least in its general outlines. It comes to realize that things were originally intended for an end higher than we might expect. The Trinity means that God is not alone and so has no need of man or the universe. Schall speaks of sports as a contemplation of what is. Games exist for their own sake in a sort of eternal time. In a brief review, it is impossible to convey a sense of the riches to be found in these essays culled from a lifetime of writings.
Most important, though, Fr. Schall has achieved his goal in these pages and has made utterly clear what is unique and precious about the mind that is Catholic. Thinking about Hitler as an ethical being seems ludicrous: How could the orchestrator of one of the most appalling modern atrocities subscribe to anything that remotely resembles an ethic? How could anyone ever attach a coherent ethic to a man whom we commonly dub an amoral nihilist? Weikart argues that Hitler and his Nazi policy actually did operate on a coherent, if alarming, central ethic — an ethic of evolutionary progress.
He regarded the success of the strongest race — the Aryan race or the German people Volk — as the sole guideline for moral authority. Hitler appropriated Darwinist theory into his socially constructed notion of race in claiming that the Aryans represented the pinnacle of biological progress.
Thus, for the Aryan race to succeed and inherit the earth, all weaker races needed to be exterminated. Weikart illuminates these basic principles by detailing their many historical and social applications. The Jews and other Holocaust victims caught the brunt of what was intended to be a much more widespread social plan. Instead, it is a historical lens through which to consider the social error of racism while recognizing the impossibility of improving society through the callous and massive cost of human life.
