Science and Christianity are compatible

Michael Gerson, a columnist with The Washington Post, has recently written about the tension between science and some Christians, and says, correctly, that it is quite unnecessary. Real scientific findings don't threaten Christian belief, and it's too bad that so many Christians think that they do. Also, Gerson says, I believe correctly, that this stance will hurt the Christianity of the future, because the children of Christians are being asked, wrongly, to choose between their religious belief and the findings of science.

Gerson says it better.

Good article! Not being a scientist or a student of science, I've seriously considered that when God said, "Let there be light" that there was indeed a Big Bang!

Thanks! I think that's right.

The movie, "God's Not Dead" also indicates that.
