“Get your own dirt!”
Richard Dawkins, “you cannot be an intelligent scientific thinker and hold religious beliefs”.
1) “Operational Science”
repeatable, testable theories
2) Historical science.
non repeatable events
Firstly, Operation Science says nothing about God’s existence.
… great clues for God’s existence
Secondly, Historical sciences – wise to be critical of the world view and assumptions
So what do the experts say
Steven J Gould, “either half my colleagues are enormously stupid, or the science of Darwinism is fully compatible with conventional religious beliefs and equally compatible with atheism.”
Hugh Siefken, “I believe in science and I believe in God … I plan to continue to testify to both”
Dr Robert Jastrow (Watch Video), “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
Why do some claim that science has disproved God?
Firstly, science can determine everything there is to know about everything
Secondly, because they have ruled out the possibility of God.
Clues for God in science
– The earth had a beginning
– The earth is designed
– The earth is finely tuned
– The regularity of nature
– The beauty of nature
– God makes sense of the resurrection
Question: What questions concerning the Christian faith have you had because of things you have heard about in science?
