Faith over Evolution

Creation-of-AdamPerhaps some people might think that Peter Moloney's faith must have been shaken by science. Did he believe in evolution? He knew a great deal of what is said about evolution, but he also knew that the theories have not been proven. And real science demands proof. In Why I am a Catholic, Moloney wrote: "Evolution is full of unproved theory, and this is admitted by those who are most knowledgeable, since the theory is constantly being changed."

Early Years

Peter Joseph Moloney wrote his memoirs, Some Memories of Old Powassan, when he was over 90 years of age. He began: "I was born in Penetanguishene in 1891 in the month of June. Two years later we moved to Powassan where my father had bought a hotel. As a small boy I was glad we had come to Powassan because it seemed to me obvious that Powassan was the centre of the world, since the sky came down evenly all around, and our house was in the dead centre."
