Faith and Science
Librarian-curated research guide for Faith and Science resources.
Professor Loren Haarsma (physics, astronomy), discusses some historical examples which have been resolved (e.g., the energy source of the sun) and some modern examples still under discussion (e.g., the Big Bang) where some scientists have concluded that a phenomenon is unexplainable in terms of known natural mechanisms.
The basic theories of science, the “laws of nature,” do not explicitly refer to God. However, a biblical view of God not only motivates us to do science, but also provides us a philosophical foundation for expecting to find regular patterns of cause and effect in nature. (Loren Haarsma)
Todd Wood and Darrel Falk, one a theistic evolutionist and the other a six-day creationist, provide a model for how Christians can hold opposing views on faith and science yet grow deeper in their relationship with each other and God.
Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scienctist, talks about her passion for bridging the gap between scientists and Christians and says the key to having a genuine discussion is to connect over shared values.
