The Bible & Science

Posted on January 26, 2012 at 3:17pm 2 Comments

The Bible is not a book of science, though the first Chapter of Genesis, as the nineteenth-century sociologist Max Weber points out, is the necessary prelude to science. It represents the first time people saw the universe as the product of a single creative will, and therefore as intelligible rather than capricious and mysterious.

Nature has no divinity. Indeed, in the Hebrew Bible, it became “undeified” as G. W. F. Hegel put it. Hegel observed (in lectures notes his students…

“It is not something that happens because people miss-interpret the text; it is because they believe in them. That is the problem.”

~ Christopher Hitchens ~





Somehow stories contain the very soul of a people; when, for instance, American pastor Carol M. Noren meditated on the crossing of the Read Sea, saying that “God commands Moses to stretch out his hand over the sea,” and Moses obeys without hesitation, she infers the conclusion that, “Our Lord desires…

Sylvester II – The Scientist Pope



He arose from humble beginnings as a monk to the papacy on account of his scientific knowledge, not in spite of it. In his day, the earth was not flat. People were not terrified that the world would end at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 999. Christians did not believe Muslims and Jews were the devil’s spawn.



The Church was not anti-science: just the reverse. Mathematics ranked among the highest forms of worship, for… Continue

For the past decade, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has stood at the forefront of new thought in the philosophy of Islam and its explanation, and Europeans have plenty to learn from her brave commitment to Enlightenment values – in the face of all that extremism.

Claudia, the text coloring on your post about Dawkins was cause because it was copied and pasted from a location with applied formatting into the Rich Text editor. I've edited the post so that it displays correctly. In the future you can avoid this by either clearing the formats after pasting in, or clicking the HTML tab first then pasting.
