Is Science on a Collision Course with Religion?
Is Science conflicting with religion?
Many think science is at loggerheads with religion. But is this really the case? What about Evolution? Is this compatible with the Christian faith? Does Darwin's theory of evolution encapsulate purpose and hence design. Did you know that science can tell us how we came to exist but not why.
What about Intelligent Design? It is surely a hot topic in the US. But unfortunately the public is given a distortion of the Intelligent Designers being just Creationists who are against the Big Bang Theory and believe in a young earth of only say 6,000 years old. But Intelligent Design includes such people as Dr. Antony Flew who converted to deism. He does not believe in a personal God and believes that Intelligent Design is a logical theory. Also Dean Kenyon was a leading Biochemist in the 1970's (I think) and he converted to Intelligent Design. This theory says that we can detect design within nature. It does not exclude evolution but asks serious questions pertaining to flaws of the theory of evolution, particularly macro evolution. Intelligent Design includes people who hold to the theory of evolution and those that don't. Personally I believe that God could have created anyway he chose to. I merely point out the inconsistencies that Darwin pointed out and believed would be solved through the finding of many more fossils.
I'm an author who has researched these very questions. I have included a video clip on this hubpage about whether life came by chance and touch on Darwin's Natual Selection and purpose. I have more clips on youtube. I look forward to some interesting discussions with you guys and gals.
