The “Father of Modern Physics” was a believer in the Creator.
“In the view of such harmony in the Cosmos which I, with my limited human mind,
am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God.
But what makes me angry is that they quote me in support of such views.”
– Albert Einstein
(pt.4) What can we learn as we look at the lives and scientific contributions of men such as Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday, Leonardo Da Vinci, Francis Bacon, or Louis Pasteur? One of many things that we see is that the majority of the “Founding Fathers” of modern science were dedicated Christian Theists. These men saw scientific investigation, in a great variety of fields, as a fascinating way to uncover the design and handiwork of their Creator.
In this fourth installment, we will finish our survey of some of the greatest scientific minds of the modern era, and their firm belief in a Creator. The goal of this series is to delineate at least 5 Reasons why science has not eliminated the classical and historical Christian concept of God:
- Scientific Founding Fathers – These individuals were primarily Christian Theists.
- “Scientism” – This is a logically self-defeating and self-contradictory concept.
- Simple Irrelevance – Approximately 95% of scientific knowledge has no bearing on the ideas and truth claims of the Christian Worldview.
- Strong Support – Approximately 5% of scientific knowledge that does intersect with the Christian Worldview is strongly supportive of Christian Theism.
- Single Perspective – Scientific knowledge is only one of many reliable methods we can use to obtain solid understanding and knowledge about reality.
I hope that you will stay with us as we continue to investigate this important question in light of the scientific, historical, and logical evidence – “Has Science Eliminated The Need For God?”.
