Last month, we dedicated several shows to a discussion of Science and Materialism (“atheistic science”) v. Religion based on Paper 195, which is a study that we will pick back up soon. One paragraph drew special attention: “true religion cannot become involved in any controversy with science; it is in no way concerned with material things. Religion is simply indifferent to, but sympathetic with, science, while it supremely concerns itself with the scientist.” (195:6.2) But how can we avoid controversies with science (including “atheistic science”) yet concern ourselves with the scientist? How do we strike that balance?
This week, our good friends Don and Zshonette at TheChristExperiment.org will help us to answer these questions and share with us their interesting perspectives on these matters. They believe the key is to separate atheistic-science from true science and then unravel the atheistic arguments, without delving deeply into science, leaving a pathway for the true scientist and the honest atheist to find God.
They will discuss with us several topics including atheism, the mature believer, strawman arguments of atheism, religion’s contribution to atheism, and the importance of perspective. They will also touch on some of the hot button issues such as evolution/creation, a universe from nothing, and abiogenesis in a way that is easily understandable without resorting to complicated scientific discussions that most lay people are not interested in debating.
The objective is to provide a clear path for the scientist to find God and to fortify the faith of the believer so that he or she is not persuaded by atheistic arguments. Consider this quote: "The finite universe of matter would eventually become uniform and deterministic but for the combined presence of mind and spirit."
