The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

Has Science Disproved Christianity?

I highly recommend “Has Science Disproved Christianity?”, a talk given by Dr. Charles Kankelborg at the Evangelical Free Church of Bozeman, Montana earlier this month. Dr. Kankelborg is a professor of physics at Montana State University.

The audio file is available from the Bozeman Evangelical Free Church site (Scroll down to November 1, 2009)

Here are a few of my favorite slides from his PowerPoint presentation:

  1. Science has proven countless of times the existense of God. It should complement the declarations of the Bible.

  2. I wish everyone who believes that God created everything would regard the hard-won insights of science as a way of better understanding God’s creation. In the 17th and 18th century, that was the default position, and men like Newton could be firm believers and still do cutting-edge science.

    While I don’t believe in God myself, I don’t have a problem with thoughtful people who do. The anti-intellectual fundamentalist fringe (or, in some parts of the country, mainstream) are another thing, and I have a serious problem with them.

  3. It’s not clear how complementarity holds. The final slide shows bifurcation, not complementarity. How is the contemporary alienation of natural and spiritual overcome?

    Regarding the comment by lightsmith: Science in the 17th and 18th centuries was not founded on naturalism. Science became naturalistic only in the 19th century. So Newton was not pressured to compromise his faith to practice science (called natural philosophy then).

  4. I just found your blog, and I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. I love this last illustration. It shows dual revelation – controversial in itself to the young-earth types – and also acknowledges what so many people ignore: HUMAN INTERPRETATION! I often hear people say science is “man’s wisdom” and that the Bible is “God’s wisdom.” Don’t we have to acknowledge that words written (and translated) in earthly languages and read by human beings must at least be interpreted by humans? Haven’t our interpretations been wrong before? Nothing speaks for itself, interpretation is always required by each individual.
