Excerpted from Chapter 14--What Does the Scientific Evidence Prove?
without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without
integrity is dangerous and dreadful.
Christians, unfortunately, believe that science is an enemy. There is good reason, since most who use the word “science” have completely abandoned Johnson’s demand that integrity go hand in hand with knowledge, replacing truth with selective evidence which supports preconceived conclusions. Christians should not develop either an antagonism toward true science or ignore the very real contributions of true science. Neither should true scientists ignore the very real foundation of science in Christianity. Dennis Prager, anthropologist and historian, laments the unthinking reliance on pseudo-science in today’s society.
