    Here are two articles to get you started:

    President Obama has nominated Francis Collins, a scientist and a Christian, to be the next director of the National Institutes of Health. The good man is the former head of the Human Genome Project and has arrived at the conclusion that there is no conflict between science and religion.

    Here are two links to get you going:

    If you are not following US current affairs you would need to do some background reading on the nomination.

      From the slides and descriptions of the nytimes, I think Dr. Collins' Christianity is a blend of superstition and the desire to be accepted by the scientific world as both a Christian and a Scienties.

      It will be very interesting to see if he will have the guts to be laughed at, treated with scorn, considered dumb, and hated by the atheistic scientific world.

      I think a true Christian, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, will be taught by God that He created the universe, and in as far as that Creation was concerned, He saw, and declared, that it was "good", which basically means eveything was set in order on the day of Creation itself, not as a subsequent event.

      He created man a living soul, and He breathed life into man, and eveything produces after its kind, including man.

      He can have the position, or they can turn him down.
      It doesn't really matter.
      Christ is Christ, God is God, with or without the Christian in the world.
