I LOVE science. Always have and always will. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an astronaut. Still do.
Bill Nye has a great scientific mind and I won’t “Jesus-juke” him by saying he is horrible, because he’s not. He makes very logical points. Some things can be explained and others can’t be. I am personally fascinated by the theory of evolution, and the scientific evidence that supports it. It is interesting stuff.
I believe that God created us to be inquisitive beings – to learn and discover. He gave us these gifts to draw closer to Him and reveal Himself; not to disprove that He exists or that His Word isn’t true. There is “room” for God in science and we shouldn’t be so close-minded to the point where we completely rule out anything that isn’t in the Bible.
But, at the same time our pursuit of the scientific answers to our questions should not rule out the One who gave us the drive to seek the answers. There’s nothing wrong with curiosity, experimentation, the pursuit of discovery, or science. This is how we grow as a human race. My only problem with Bill is that he wanted “proof” for something that largely requires faith.
One of my favorite quotes come from my favorite show, Star Trek DS9 which, of course, is a science fiction show:
“That’s the thing about faith. If you don’t have it, you can’t understand it. And if you do, no explanation is necessary.”
