The Question of Science and God

There are some who believe that science has sounded the death knell for the belief in God. But that is far from the truth. In fact, science -- understood and applied appropriately -- and belief in God -- a correct belief in the God of the Bible -- are not incompatible at all. There are still areas that we have not yet fully figured out how to reconcile, but that is not the same as saying that the science has somehow disproven God.

Professor John Lennox recenlty appeared with Eric Metaxas (who has a really fine radio show) at one of Eric's Socrates in the City events where Dr. Lennox discussed The Question of Science and God in two parts.

Part 1, set forth below, begins by discussing the intriguing question of why numbers make sense. He notes that Einstein once said that the only incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. He also sites Eugene Wigner's fine paper from 1961 entitled "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Science" to show that this idea isn't just the idea of "Christian" thinkers.

 

 I encourage everyone to enjoy and consider what Dr. Lennox says.
