PROFESSOR PROBOSCIS SAYS
Some things, in my mind, are oxymoronic, that is to say they do not belong on the same page of our understanding. Science is based on what we can absolutely see and prove: faith is based solely on what we can not see or prove. Yet the faithful tend to demand proof of that which they are told to believe in.
Psychology is another field of science based upon human reasoning. Yet we have "Christian Psychologists" that somehow feel compelled to blend the two antilogicals into one mixing bowl.
It would seem to me that, if we are going to understand science from a Christian perspective, then we will needs have a Christian scientist whom we might consult. So, even though we again have an oxymoronic base to build upon, I believe I have found the perfect candidate for the radio forum I wish to present: Doctor Hypothysis Dubious Proboscis.
Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is, in its broadest sense, any systematic knowledge-base or prescriptive practice that is capable of resulting in a prediction or predictable type of outcome. In this sense, science may refer to a highly skilled technique or practice.
Science is a continuing effort to discover and increase human knowledge and understanding through disciplined research. Using controlled methods, scientists collect observable evidence of natural or social phenomena, record measurable data relating to the observations, and analyze this information to construct theoretical explanations of how things work.
Faith is the confident belief or trust in the truth or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing. The word "faith" can refer to a religion itself or to religion in general. As with "trust", faith involves a concept of future events or outcomes, and is used conversely for a belief "not resting on logical proof or material evidence."
Faith is often used in a religious context, as in theology, where it almost universally refers to a trusting belief in a transcendent reality, or else in a Supreme Being and/or this being's role in the order of transcendent, spiritual things.
20O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. (1Tim 6:)
18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2Cor 4:)
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Heb 11:)
