Seeing God Through Science
Exploring the Science Narrative to Strengthen and Deepen Faith in the Creator
Barry David Schoub
It has been said that science and religion aren't friends. Indeed, science and scientists are preferably shunned in conservative religious circles. Seeing God through Science, however, emphatically dispels that notion. This book compellingly shows how science is, in point of fact, a potent support for religious faith. From the powerful, universal, biological drives of living organisms to the unimaginable vastness of the universe, science cogently frames the fundamental questions of meaning and purpose. Answers to these questions, however, lie outside science. It is solely through religious revelation that acceptable answers close the circle of enquiry into truth. In addition, examples from the sciences of genetics and cosmology illustrate the typical pattern of metascience, i.e. the process of science, which advances toward a frontier, only to generate further avenues of exploration, but never reaches a finality of knowledge. Thus, metascience steers enquiry to a supernatural reality, answerable only through religious revelation. This book shows how modern science is now entering a new phase, where what is unattainable by the science of nature constitutes a message to humankind that there exists a supernatural being who created, and controls, the universe. Modern science is now coming to prove God.
