As the devil strives to immerse and drown the world in darkness and confusion under the guise of science, and as he savagely launches his attacks on the pivotal doctrines of Holy Mother Church, the “Foundations Restored” DVD series casts a bright light which exposes and defeats the camouflaged lie of the Devil. The series offers logical, scientific, philosophical and theological arguments which not only restore the “Creation Providence” account to its proper place, but also liberate the whole realm of natural science from the grasp of its evolutionist hijackers. I therefore recommend the DVD series “Foundations Restored” without reservation for circulation in the public domain so as to combat error and to proclaim the reign of TRUTH.
The science presented in this series needs to be carefully considered in any program of science or biology which is presented in our Catholic Schools. I look forward to the completion of the entire series.
"Foundations Restored" is a must see for any Catholic, whether clergy or lay person, who seeks the truth about what the Church has always taught in regard to Genesis and the origins of man and the universe. In today’s anti-life culture more than ever, it is paramount that Catholics trust Divine Revelation over scientific speculation.
I heartily recommend the DVD series “Foundations Restored,” and I am grateful to God and to the Kolbe Center for this powerful means to bring the truth to souls. As the apocalyptic dragon continues to wage war against the truth proclaimed for centuries by Christ’s Bride, the very foundations of our Faith are threatened by the all-pervasive lie of evolution. Hugh Owen and his colleagues simply and deftly debunk the evolutionary myth, restoring natural science to its proper position as the humble handmaid of Divine Truth.
The pervasiveness of the theory of evolution cannot be due to its merits because it fails the test of science, logic and metaphysics (to name just three disciplines). Could it continue to gain adherents from a fear of love? The Kolbe Center does a great service in its new DVD series "Foundations Restored" by explaining the impossibility of evolution and more importantly by inviting us to the Love of God revealed in the Creation account in Genesis.
SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS
Hugh Owen is the convert son of Sir David Owen, the first Secretary General of International Planned Parenthood Federation. After entering the Catholic Church as a freshman at Princeton University at the age of 18, Hugh served as a teacher, headmaster, and director of religious education for many years before becoming the director of the John Paul II Institute of Christian Spirituality and the founder and director of the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation. The Kolbe Center provides a forum for Catholic theologians, philosophers and natural scientists who defend the traditional Catholic doctrine of creation as a much better explanation of all of the facts of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, Magisterial teaching and natural science than theistic evolution. Hugh and his wife Maria have been blessed with nine living children (two of whom are Benedictine sisters) and sixteen grandchildren (so far!) and live in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Hugh is also a member of the newly-established John Paul II Academy for Human Life and the Family.
John Wynne is the Director of Restoring Truth Ministries, an apostolate founded in 1999 to study the war of worldviews and to help address the underlying causes of the crisis of faith: rationalism and evolutionism. He has authored four books: Repairing the Breach, A Catholic Assessment of Evolution Theory, The Catholic Teaching on Scriptural Inerrancy, and The Fall of Darwin’s Last Icon and the Failure of the Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative. He has worked closely with the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation since 2009 by helping to organize the Kolbe Center’s annual conferences and by speaking at a number of Kolbe Center events in the United States and in Europe. He holds four college degrees and has traveled to more than 40 countries in his primary career as an energy economist and socio-economist.

Wolfgang Smith is a physicist and mathematician (A.B., Cornell, M.S., Purdue, Ph.D., Columbia) by profession. He has made it his life’s work to expose the mythical nature of the contemporary “scientific” worldview, in the hope of opening doors officially “bolted” since the Enlightenment. Despite the “politically incorrect” tenor of his writings, he has become widely recognized as one of the foremost authors to offer a critique of modern science in light of traditional metaphysics.
Dr. John Sanford, PhD is presently a Courtesy Associate Professor at Cornell, President of Logos Research Associates, and President of Feed My Sheep Foundation. As a Cornell University professor, John has conducted genetic research for over 30 years. This research has resulted in more than 100 scientific publications, and several dozen patents. In addition to producing numerous new crop varieties, John's research resulted in new genetic engineering technologies. Since the year 2000 John has focused his efforts on genetic research which helps validate the Biblical perspective regarding human genetic history. John feels his most significant contributions to science have been: 1) the Biolistic Process; 2) the book Genetic Entropy; 3) Development of Mendel's Accountant (the most advanced and biologically realistic numerical simulation of the mutation/selection process); and 4) a recent Cornell symposium of which he was the lead organizer and subsequently editor of the published proceedings entitled Biological Information--New Perspectives.
Dr. Thomas H. Seiler, PhD was born in 1972 in Freiburg/Breisgau in Germany. He graduated in physics at the Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg, with his diploma thesis on the topic: “Measurement of γ-Production during Compton-Scattering of Quasi-Real Photons at CERN.” He received his Ph.D. from the Faculty of Physics at the Technical University of Munich, writing on: “Differential Electrochemical Mass Spectrometry of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cells.” Currently, he is working as a development engineer in the field of electrochemical gas sensors.
