You Asked For It Is There Really A God? Can I Really Trust The Bible? Faith Vs. Science: Are Both True How Do I Stop Feeling Guilty?
Conflict Thesis John William Draper Andrew Dickson White
John Hedley Brooke "In its traditional forms, the conflict thesis has been largely discredited."
Steven Shapin "In the late Victorian period it was common to write about the 'warfare between science and religion' and to presume that the two bodies of culture must always have been in conflict. However, it is a very long time since these attitudes have been held by historians of science."
Gary Ferngren "Although popular images of controversy continue to exemplify the supposed hostility of Christianity to new scientific theories, studies have shown that Christianity has often nurtured and encouraged scientific endeavor,
Gary Ferngren while at other times the two have co- existed without either tension or attempts at harmonization. If Galileo and the Scopes trial come to mind as examples of conflict, they were the exceptions rather than the rule.”
Stephen Jay Gould "There never was a period of 'flat earth darkness' among scholars (regardless of how the public at large may have conceptualized our planet both then and now).
Stephen Jay Gould Greek knowledge of sphericity never faded, and all major medieval scholars accepted the Earth's roundness as an established fact of cosmology."
Galileo "The intention of the Holy Spirit is to teach us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go."
Pope John Paul II "The Bible itself speaks to us of the origin of the universe and its make-up, not in order to provide us with a scientific treatise, but in order to state the correct relationships of man with God and with the universe.
Pope John Paul II Sacred Scripture wishes simply to declare that the world was created by God, and in order to teach this truth it expresses itself in the terms of the cosmology in use at the time of the writer"
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (NIV)
Genesis 1:27-28 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.
Genesis 1:27-28 Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (NIV)
Genesis 3:4-5 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
