Pierre Teilhard de Chardin -- Toward a Science Charged with Faith Toward a Science Charged with Faith Chapter 5 of God and Science by Charles P. Henderson Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) stands among the very few leaders of thought in this century to integrate pure scientific research with a religious vocation. Teilhard was seen by the Vatican as a threat to the integrity of the faith. At the same time he also suggested a program for the reconstruction of science. It is perhaps not surprising that a leading advocate of Darwinism, Stephen Jay Gould, has gone to work on Teilhard. Partly as a result of these defensive and dogmatic reactions to Teilhard, he is today tragically underestimated in both the religious and scientific communities. Can science and religion be successfully remarried? Needless to say writing like this did not reassure the religious authorities in Rome, for Teilhard affirmed the material world as a source of mystical illumination. Meanwhile Giuseppe Sarto was elevated to the papacy as Pius X.

A Good CEO For A Change In a world filled with headlines about CEO's and executives running their companies to the ground, and holding lavish parties and getaways on taxpayer funded bailouts, here is a refreshingly touching story of one very different individual. Leonard Abess Jr., CEO of City National Bank in Florida, sold 83% of his stake in the bank to a Spanish company, and then used the proceeds to reward his very own employees. At a time when bankers are being pilloried on Capitol Hill as heartless and greedy, Leonard Abess Jr. stands apart.After selling his bank for a fortune last fall, he quietly handed out $60 million in bonuses from his own pocket — and not just to top executives.

Bajo Perspectiva 1 Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Pierre Teilhard de Chardin "All around us, to right and left, in front and behind, above and below, we have only to go a little beyond the frontier of sensible appearances in order to see the divine welling up and showing through. But it is not only close to us, in front of us, that the divine presence has revealed itself. It has sprung up universally, and we find ourselves so surrounded and transfixed by it, that there is no room left to fall down and adore it, even within ourselves. By means of all created things, without exception, the divine assails us, penetrates us and moulds us. About Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) Teilhard de Chardin, a French Jesuit priest, paleontologist and philosopher, was described by Aldous Huxley as "a very remarkable human being."
