Christianity As Science-Starter

Amy Hall from Stand To Reason posted a series of articles this week entitled Christianity As Science-Starter. There are three, and they deal with Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. Her inspiration is a book called Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning, by Nancy Pearcey. In this series, she reminds us that science was started by God fearing Christians who believed that the universe, as created by God, follows a master plan that is predictable and discoverable. It is not the results of random chance.

While I can’t recommend the book–I haven’t read it–I can recommend the articles:

Looks like another book to add to my reading list.

Letter To Demand Progress

My favorite Internet freedom organization, Demand Progress, is spreading its campaign. It has recently put together a couple of petition campaigns against “the war on science.” One was a petition to the Texas Board of Education, and the other is to Congress supporting a resolution honoring Darwin. I am now going to have to write my congressman urging the exact opposite of what their petition says. Here is the text of my hastily written email:

Evolution: I’m Not Buying What You’re Selling

A study from Penn State has found that many high school biology teachers are not doing a good job of teaching evolution. Many in the scientific community are disturbed, and seem surprised by the results. They seem to think that further education for teachers would be one way to solve the problem, and while a lack of understanding may be contributing to the “problem,” I don’t think that is the real problem. Most teachers are not scientists; they’re teachers and like most Americans, they don’t like being told what to believe. I think the real problem revolves around the fact that many scientists feel this theory needs to be forced down America’s throats, and many in America look at it like a bad television commercial. I’m not buying what you’re selling.

Science Is A Tool, Not An Authority

One of the things Christians are attacked over is their “unreasonably blind” faith, and “willful ignorance” of modern science. Although I would agree that there are Christians that hold their beliefs without asking the questions of why, that is not the case for all, and those that do ask the questions find that there are reasonable arguments for the Christian worldview.
