Science and Religion Can Reconcile their Differences!
In this book, Ray Menegus, a mathematician and Christian, uses his knowledge of philosophy, science, and religion to argue the case that the apparent conflicts between Science and Religion are resolvable.
First, it is necessary for each to understand where the other is coming from, and to eliminate the knee-jerk inflammatory speech from their dialog.
Second, it is necessary for people of faith to understand some fundamental physics of nature, and to recognize that interpretation of Genesis can be framed in scientific terms.
Third, it is necessary for the scientist, who must be firmly planted in the laboratory of the real world, to recognize that there are several distinct steps in Creation that can only be explained by an overall design, whether it refers to a Designer, Creator, or God.
By flawless logic, Menegus shows three distinct times in the history of the universe when some sort of divine intervention must have occurred. These three events are difficult or impossible for the true scientist to ignore, or to explain. An analysis of these three fundamental mysteries of science form the basis for this book.
People who lean toward one side or the other, or even those that straddle the fence, will find this book serious fodder for thought and discussion.
