I believe that true science and the Holy Bible will always confirm each other. What is your thinking on this?

I agree. I do not see reason why they should disagree. For Christians who argue that Science is evil and stuff I wonder what kind of theology they have! Because if one believes that God is the author of both the Word and the World then there should be no contradiction.

I like your logic on this topic. The thing is that people will hear about contradictions and controvercies regarding scientific theories and the Bible. Then they will decide which side they want to be on and not study it out themselves.

I go with science. The Bible is a story with some inconsistencies.

I find that the more I study the Bible, the more such supposed inconsistencies disappear. And the more I study it the more points I find that are in agreement with scientific facts that cannot be denied.

I think eventually science and faith will prove each other. But it may not be exactly as the theologians and scientists expect. There is much more mystery to both disciplines than our mere human intellect and psyches can imagine.

I think so too. Science and the Bible have already converged on so many points I'm sure they will only increase with time. Thanks for your response.

What is your definition of "true science"? Is it science as a whole or just the things that the Christian-right find suitable to fit their needs? There are certain events that can be verified, but events in the Bible can be better verified through other types of literature from other time periods. Science involves measurement and observation, and you can't measure "God."

Scientific absolutes such as carbon dating and the orbits of the planets. The Bible is in agreement with these.

I agree whole heartedly. However the world will never see it that way. Science will always try to prove God to be a myth. I view Science as today's tower of Babylon. Differences is, instead of bricks and mortar we use rockets and technology.

I believe that true science and true religion support and explain one another. Religion and science are two sides of the same coin. One cannot see the whole coin unless one looks at the other side.

That's a great way to explain it. Thanks for responding.
