That Nerdy Catholic's aim is to explore the intersection of the sciences and faith. How do we think of the creation of the universe in light of all we are learning in the fields of astronomy and physics? How do we view our souls with all we are learning in psychology? Is philosophy important to our lives, both spiritual and physical? We are going to delve deep into these questions, and do our best to have fun along the way. Nerding out is both a rigorous process of diving deeper to understand something, but it is also diving deeper into something you love. Let's nerd out together and find a deeper life along the way.
