9781625103796: Science and Religion: Reconciling the Conflicts

This book shares promising possibilities for reconciling some of the conflicts between science and religion. Intriguing information is now available which points out weaknesses in some very popular, but contradictory scientific theories, as well as other theories which are harmonious with a rather literal approach to the Bible.

From the Author:

Although I love aspects of both science and religion, I am annoyed when in the midst of enjoying a science program comes a slap in the face in the form of information contradictory to my religious beliefs. This type of event has motivated me to many years of serious study. That study has gleaned information casting doubt on the validity of some extremely popular, but contradictory, scientific theories. Also summarized are some intriguing theories (considered by some to be unorthodox, or even heretical) which are much more consistent with accounts found in the Bible and related ancient sources. This research has led me to conclude that there is sufficient evidence available today to suggest that there really are plausible possibilities for reconciling some of the many conflicts between science and religion--at least for those who will entertain unusual ideas.

Although many scientists insist on studying science without any consideration of God or his influence, to those of us who believe in Him, that is not only an unnecessary position, but a harmful one. In spite of my strong religious beliefs, and the inability for any man to be completely objective in anything, I've tried to treat the information fairly and without harshness in criticizing theories or dogmas. One of my favorite quotes serves as a theme for this book: "What seems to be proved may not be embraced; but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned. Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish." (From Austin Farrer, in Light on C.S. Lewis)

From the Back Cover:

How much of science is fact, and how much is theory? What is proof? Why do scientific methods give so many dates that contradict Bible chronology? Why do so many scientists say Noah's Flood was just a myth? Why do people claim that their loss of faith was due to scientific "enlightenment"? These and related questions have led to more than 40 years of research--which, in turn, has led to intriguing possibilities for reconciling some of the conflicts between science and religion.
 
Truth is truth--no matter the source. Sorting it out from the vast amount of information pouring out every day is an unending task. This book, Science and Religion, is written to be clear and understandable--even to non-scientists, and it opens up ideas that most people have not yet explored. It includes summaries of some lesser-known scientific theories which are more consistent with accounts described in the Bible. The author has taken a rather literal approach to the scriptures and related sources, and shares his findings without making dogmatic pronouncements.

Book Condition: New. 1625103794 Brand new softcover book! ; From the Author, "In the book, I take a rather literal approach to the scriptures, supposing that they generally say what they mean and mean what they say.While there is no conflict between truth from one source and truth from another, there are plenty of conflicts between Science and Religion. What?s wrong? Why do scientists generally reject, or ignore the accounts of the Great Flood? Why do so many people attribute their loss of faith to science? These and related questions are discussed in the book.I?ve studied a number of lesser-known scientific theories which are more consistent with the scriptures than many of those that are much more popular. Also, information is shared suggesting that some of the very popular scientific theories aren?t as sound as we might think.The book contains a large number of quotes from incredibly interesting sources.
