Thought for the day: Wayne Rossiter on science, miracles, or a blend of both
|April 30, 2017||Posted by News under Intelligent Design, theistic evolution|
I simply reject this notion that the entire discussion can be cast in the framework of what is and what is not science, or what science can and cannot do. If a TEist believes in a supernatural Jesus, they’re not anti-science. But neither is a Christian who believes that angels fought alongside Elisha. Such claims are not rejections of the fundamental laws and mechanics of nature. They are claims that our history is more than this. To say that there are things science cannot explain is not to say that science is to be rejected. What if it’s not a war between science and faith, but a shared partnership between the natural and supernatural? What if history is explained by both the background noise of the natural system and the supernatural punctuations (acts) of miraculous events? That is, science is true as far as it goes, but is insufficient to explain history. What if we stop asking what is scientific, and start asking about what is historically and presently real? More.
So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Belisha. 2 Kings 6: 16–17
