Scientific Thinking and Religious Faith
This page shows what is available, in different parts of the website, about various aspects of this important theme.
• Galileo's Conflicts and Flat-Earth Beliefs are often cited as historical examples of "warfare" between science and religion, but WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?
• An introductory overview (about two reasons to care) is Science-and-Religion for Understanding and Personal Faith.
• A links-page about SEARCHING
FOR TRUTH IN THE TWO BOOKS OF GOD — by interpreting Nature
(in Science) and Scripture
(in Theology) — contains sections
about these topics:
Is there inherent conflict between science and religion? (about the discredited "warfare" view)
Mutually Interactive Relationships Between Science and Religion (various models of interaction)
Wisely Using Information from the Two Books (mainly about young-earth and old-earth views)
Is historical science reliable? (young-earth skeptics challenge it by asking, "Were you there?")
Is it a question of Competence & Character? (re: reasons for disagreements among Christians)
Apologetics & Natural Theology (these are relevant for Creation Questions and in other areas)
DESIGN IN APOLOGETICS AND NATURAL THEOLOGY
• CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS AND POSTMODERN RELATIVISM
• What interactions occur between religious worldviews and METHODOLOGICAL
• And eventually, science-religion interactions will be included in DEBATES ABOUT SCIENCE.
• CAREERS FOR CHRISTIANS IN SCIENCE and STEWARDSHIP OF LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW
And in another part of the ASA website, Jack Haas summarizes ideas and provides links in Topic Pages; he has a page about Science & Faith and most of his pages are relevant for science-faith questions, so you can explore them to find what you think will be interesting or useful.
This website for Whole-Person Education has TWO KINDS OF LINKS:
an ITALICIZED LINK keeps you inside a page, moving you to another part of it, and
a NON-ITALICIZED LINK opens another page. Both keep everything inside this window,
so your browser's BACK-button will always take you back to where you were.
