Understanding God and Science
I like The BioLogos Foundation; an organization that tries to bring together science and faith. I like them because I’m an amateur astronomer and I see it as studying how God made the heavens and the earth. To me it’s fun and challenging. However, it is also fraught with conflicts that appear unresolvable. I’m trying to find a way to resolve the conflicts and so are the BioLogos people. If this subject interests you below is an excerpt from an explanation of what they believe and how they are trying to understand how God created everything.
The development and advance of science have allowed us to discover more about the universe. Such discovery results in an increasing accumulation of scientific truth. For believers, these discoveries must ultimately be compatible with the truth that is revealed in the Bible, and it is the conviction of BioLogos that this compatibility is not only desirable but also possible. The limitation is that our access to all forms of truth, including scientific and religious, is at best partial.
