I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.” - (Psalm 139)

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.” - (Psalm 19)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” - (John 1)

The Christian community




The Scientific community




“The Rise of Modern Science”, from How Should We Then Live?, by Francis Schaeffer

* An intelligent Creator

* The uniformity of natural causes in an open system.

* “If the Bible is a revelation from God, and if nature and the cosmos are a collective revelation of that same God, the two should not conflict.”


A Christian in the sciences...




“Men have become like gods ... Science offers us total mastery over our environment and over our destiny.”
Edmund Leach

“Modern science was conceived, and born, and flourished
in the matrix of Christian theism.”
Alvin Plantinga
