Science and Faith
I'm reading a great book, "The Language of God" which is by Francis Collins. Dr Collins was the scientist reasponsible for the Human Genome project, and is not only a brilliant scientist, but also has a deep Christian faith. His book is helping me work through the problems I have had regarding God, the Bible and the Cosmos (to put it in a nutshell!) I am only one third the way through and am so looking forward to reading the redst of it.
I think a lot of non-Christians think Christianity is totally irrelevant to today's life, in the same way many regard Muslims as terrorists. Neither of course is true. The way some Christians present Christianity in regard to scientific fact is irrelevant (although the basic message of the Gospels is always true, whatever age, culture or time we are in) and some Islamists are terrorists, though very few. They, of course, are the ones we hear about.
So I am enjoying this book immensely, and doing something I usually abhor - unlerlining and making notes in the margins! Still, its my book, and I can do what I like!!
Thought the daffocils looked cheerful!
