Science and religion

The issues:

  1. Is it possible to accept the findings of modern science and be religious?

  2. Do the findings of scientists undermine the case for belief in god?


  1. Belief in god and modern science-

  • Primary issues regarding religious belief and concerns whether god is the most rational way to explain why the universe exists and why human life exists.

  • Is god the most satisfactory hypothesis to explain the origins of the universe

  • Not simply concerned with explaining how the universe began they all focus upon the matter of explaining why there is any universe here at all

  • The fact that it is here can be explained by reference to god

  • God explanation provides an absolute answer to why the universe is here= cosmological

  • This explanation goes well beyond
