5. I am not a member of the fundamentalist American Protestant church. I don’t know what their opinion of science is, but for those I do know, many are against science, and believe scientists are anti-God. I don’t know why this is so.
In fact, I believe as does Dinesh Desouza, that legitimate science more often than not helps EXPLAIN the case for God than refutes it.
Years ago, I got fed up with my job at a newspaper and for a time left to work in the legitimate private sector, where I ended up working for a man who was an academically credentialed scientist who was actually employed as an engineer—an intersting dichotomy in itself.
One day we got on the “creationism” topic and he began to explain the Big Bang theory to me—and I just assumed that anyone who could so completely describe something in such detail must be a devotee of it. So, I basically ended up asking him, “But what came BEFORE the big bang—?”
And he said to me, “Well, that question is why I go to church every Sunday.”
Awesome! I agree with you 100%!
