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?

Debates:

  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
