God, Faith, and Science according to some shouldn’t be in the same sentence. After all, our understanding of the world around us has grown exponentially. We are able to probe deeper and deeper into space and we have discovered amazing things about the universe. Nebulas, black holes, exta-solar planets, and so much more simply waiting for us. It’s an exciting time. A few days ago, I watched a YouTube video of a Virgin Galactic test flight of a sub-orbital spaceflight. From the pilot’s seat, you could see the earth beneath you and the darkness of space in front of it. It was pretty awesome, let me tell you.
Commercial space travel is becoming a reality. A mission to Mars is within my lifetime (unless the Dutch get to Mars first). Testing of bio-medical printers that can print human body parts can open the door for a wide range of medical help and research. We can now isolate genes and design our children according to the parent’s specifications. And this is just the tip of the ice berg of man is doing.
So with these advancements of knowledge, does God really have a place in it? What about faith? Some skeptics would say in the past, God was a filler word for things we didn’t understand. Now that we get it, God should be returned to His place in the realm of belief or mythology.
Some would say.
So does God, faith, and science still belong together?
