This week we looked at the questions our teens submitted concerning Science and Evolution. I am not a scientist by any means, but I would consider myself a science enthusiast (like Fred from Big Hero 6). I have done my best to answer these questions and address these concerns in a truthful, considerate, thoughtful way. I present the ways in which I have personally come to reconcile science and faith in my own life. But I must emphasize that not everyone will agree with me. And that’s OK! If you don’t agree with what I have to say, let me know and we can discuss these things further. But be prepared to give me reasons for your disagreement and where you stand on certain issues.
If you will click the image below, you will be taken to another page where you can listen to my class from last night. And I will also include images of my presentation slides so you can follow along with what’s on screen. At the end I will list some helpful resources for those of you interested in doing more research.
Finding God in the Waves, by Mike McHargue
Mere Christianity, by CS Lewis
The Case for a Creator, by Lee Strobel
The Source, by John Clayton
The Reason for God, by Timothy Keller
(I have each of these books in my office for anyone who would like to borrow them. Mike McHargue, CS Lewis, Lee Strobel, and John Clayton all have this in common – each one was an atheist who came to -or back to- faith in God.)
