Why Young Catholics are Leaving in Droves
(and what can be done to keep them Catholic)

At the U.S. Bishops Meeting in June 2019, Bishop Robert Barron, Chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis, spoke of the massive apostasy of Catholic youth and cited statistics such as “half the kids we baptized and confirmed in the last 30 years are now ex-Catholics or unaffiliated.” To put that into perspective, he said that “one out of six millennials in the U.S. is now a former Catholic.” On 12/17/16 the CNA/EWTN News carried an article called “Why Catholics are leaving the faith by age 10 – and what parents can do about it.”  Here is an excerpt:
Young Catholics are leaving the faith at an early age – sometimes before the age of 10 – and their reasons are deeper than being “bored at Mass,” the author of a recent report claims.

“Those that are leaving for no religion – and a pretty big component of them saying they are atheist or agnostic – it turns out that when you probe a bit more deeply and you allow them to talk in their own words, that they are bringing up things that are related to science and a need for evidence and a need for proof,” said Dr. Mark Gray, a senior research associate at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University…

Our newest  book is  The Evolution of Catholic Unbelief
Catholic priests and educators are not prepared to teach the Catholic doctrines of creation.  Instead they compromise them with ludicrous descriptions of creation by evolution that are not scientific, not biblical, and not anything the Catholic Church has ever held to be true. These incoherent, man-made "doctrines" are unconvincing and the younger Catholics are leaving. Evolution is not science; it is philosophy. It has been identified as philosophy by Popes Leo XIII, Pius X, Pius XI, Pius XII and Cardinal Ratzinger-Benedict XVI. The book is an appeal to scholars and intellectuals in the disciplines of theology and philosophy to confront the errors. A much more detailed description of the book can be found on Amazon where It is available as a kindle ebook or printed edition.

The Institute for Science and Catholicism (ISC) promotes the renewal of a Catholic theology of creation and a new science/faith synthesis based on sound scientific data and a serious approach to the Holy Scriptures in accordance with longstanding Church Tradition.
ISC believes that the uncritical acceptance by Catholics of the claims of the scientific consensus regarding evolutionary cosmology and biology is leading to loss of their Faith and the Faith of Catholic children.
ISC is officially recognized by the IRS as an organization contributions to which are to be treated as tax- deductible charitable donations by the donor.
