Scientific Christians

I recently heard from a childhood and FB friend, Michael McClare, in response to one of my series of ‘Scientific Christian’ posts: “As you know, I work at NASA. I work on the Webb Telescope mission. Its science goals include imaging the first galaxies that formed after the Big Bang (they formed almost 13.5 billion years ago) and searching for the building blocks of life in atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars. None of that is in the Bible, yet, so many of the scientists and engineers I work with are very religious, Christian people. In fact several of our leading astrophysicists are devout Christians. How can this be, as it flies in the face of their beliefs??

They all see science as tool to better understand and marvel this blessing God created.”
