Faith AND Science

Dinner begins at 6:00pm,

Bible Study and Discussion at 7:00pm

How often have we heard someone refer to “the warfare” between science and religion! Maybe it was a Christian complaining that scientists are arrogant, obnoxious atheists. Or maybe it was a scientist complaining that every Christian opposes science, rejects evolution, and believes the earth is flat and rests on the back of a very large tortoise.
The truth, of course, is more complex. Sure, scientists and religious leaders have sometimes disagreed. But “warfare”? Hardly. Experts who study the history of the science-religion relationship insist that it is a complicated mix. Occasionally they tangled. Nevertheless, mostly religion supports and encourages science.
