One of the more misguided comments by prominent Roman Catholics of late is that “Science proves when life begins.”  I am thinking specifically of Bill O’Reilly and Senator Marco Rubio who have both stated this publicly.

Unfortunately, for this to be true, man would have to be only a material being.  If we hold to the traditional view that man is constituted of body and soul, we must allow that science has not a thing to say about the soul.
