One commonly held view today is that science and faith in God are in such direct opposition that we must choose between the two; we can\u2019t believe in both. But is that really true?
Think about it. Science is \u201cthe study of the physical world,
especially by using systematic observation and experiment.\u201d Faith
is \u201cbelief or trust in somebody or something\u201d\u2014in this case God\u2014
\u201dwithout logical proof.\u201d But what if therewas logical, scienti\ufb01c
proof of God\u2019s existence? Wouldn\u2019t that bridge the gap?
Well, thereis proof, and plenty of it! As King David wrote
in the Psalms, \u201cThe heavens declare the glory of God; the skies
proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth
speech; night after night they display knowledge\u201d (Psalm 19:1\u20132
NIV). The apostle Paul explained, \u201cSince the creation of the world
[God\u2019s] invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made\u201d (Romans 1:20). The American poet
Ralph Waldo Emerson summed up the science-faith connection
when he said, \u201cAll I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for
all I have not seen.\u201d True science points to God and thereby vali-
dates faith in God. We still have to believe in our invisible God by
faith, but our faith is stronger because it is backed by proof.
Today more and more highly respected scientists are believ-
ers, often largely due to their own scienti\ufb01c observation of God\u2019s
creation. The more they learn, the clearer it becomes to them that
our universe didn\u2019t come about by accident or so-called natural
processes; there had to be an intelligent Designer, a Creator.
