    The inventor of the scientific method was Francis Bacon, who said, “There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent our falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures, which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power.”

    Thank JtK for that list. I think we do not have the substantial scientific breakthroughs of yesteryear because science has pushed God out of the equation. I pray that young scientists would be critical thinking, bold in their faith, and have the ability to band together to resist the censure of academia for Christians.

    Good point to the article.

    I think that Science is a continuation of discovering realities of our Universe/Multiverse and how our bodies work as well as how other aspects of the U/M work.

    That’s why it gets discouraging to see so many fundamentalists who are anti-Science.

    I think Scientists will discover how to cure/correct/mitigate those other diseases/maladies on your list in time. I don’t know that it is some sort of “God is withholding it” thing…I think it is more “Man Would Rather Kill Each Other” thing in terms of priorities and funding and emphasis etc.

    Great article, Michael…yes, Lord, please help us to cure these rampant diseases. My husband has surgery for cancer Monday–prayers are appreciated.

    Linnea,

    You and you husband were two that were on my mind as I wrote this morning.
    Praying for you both, my friend.

  7. Linnea says:

  8. Yes, LORD, yes…PLEASE!!!

    Linnea, praying for your hubby, and you too.

    as a mother i had a treat this morning as i listened to my daughter expound on things scientific – she gets Stephen Hawking – she said that she thinks the reason that scientists today find it important to disprove/deny God is because their studies are so deep and they are so into their subjects and so competitive among themselves that they subconsciously don’t want to get to a place where they prove God and find that someone got there (the ultimate secret of the universe) before them…
