Someone I care about has been raising some very good questions about the conflicts between science, God, spirituality and religion. Do they conflict? Contradict? Co-exists?
"Since neither one of us is really that educated in the sciences, it seems a bit pointless to be having this conversation, don’t you think?", he said to me.
I had to admit he was right.
So the rest of my summer (and most likely a good chunk of the fall) are going to be dedicated to educating myself. My journey has been primarily by faith. I hadn’t done that much research because I had experienced God in so many ways firsthand that I KNEW it to be true.
But if I’m honest with myself, it’s a cop out and just plain lazy. How can any thinking person take me seriously if my answers end with, “Because I just know.”
I’ve shelled out almost $130 in hard copies and wanted a mix of perspectives. Yes, I’m interested in a Christian’s point of view of Intelligent Design but what are the New Atheists thinking? Other popular arguments currently out there?
Here’s a rundown of what will be arriving this week. Feel free to let me know if you’ve read any or have others to add on the topics of science & God. (In no particular order)
