Science and Christianity
The good folks at St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in London have developed a website designed to show that science and Christianity can go together called ‘Science a personal view’.
In the Post Modern age we’re very scientific. The media has spotted this trend, thrusting celebrity status on Prof. Brian Cox (more so than when he was in DReam) and commissioning shows like ‘Attenborough: 60 years’ and ‘Stargazing live’. These programmes show something of the scale, complexity and wonder of God’s universe. However Post Modernism has taught us that nothing is communicated without a purpose or agenda and all too often Science is used to discredit Christianity or worse disprove the claims of the Bible.
In light of this William Taylor (Rector of St Helen’s Bishopsgate) asked 9 scientist from St Helen’s (including 7PhD’s, 1 Prof.) to say on camera why they think Science and Christianity don’t contradict each other. The 12 short (90 second) films that comprise the body of this work is the project titled ‘Science a personal view’. The aim of this work is:
1. To encourage Christians (particular scientists) to show them many credible scientists are Christians.
2. To engage with some of the viewpoints of atheistic scientists.
