Scripture and ScienceBy Will Barlow
April 12, 2022
Can we reconcile the biblical record with the current human understanding of science? Can belief in God be rational? How can we form a more coherent worldview, taking both science and Scripture into account? The goal of Scripture and Science will be to demonstrate belief in God as a rational venture.
The class divides into three main sections based on major branches of science:
physics and astronomy
biology and chemistry
geology and earth science
First, we will contemplate the evidence from physics and astronomy, examining questions like: does the Big Bang theory remove the need for a Creator?
Second, we will consider the implications of evolutionary theory: does the evidence for evolution negate a Creator?
Third, we will analyze major biblical events like the Flood of Noah in light of modern geology.
Finally, we will examine the subject of miracles: What is a miracle? If we can scientifically explain a miracle, is it no longer a miracle?
As we examine the pages of the Bible and the \"book of nature,\" we will see that there are many ways of reconciling Scripture and science.
