Science and Christianity: The Three Big Questions
Josh A. Reeves
Josh Reeves is Assistant Professor of Science and Religion at Samford University
Abstract: I will present in this paper three major questions that shape background assumptions on matters of science and Christianity. The questions are the following: Does the Bible contain modern scientific theories, how much can non-Christians know, and how far does science reach? Depending on how one answers these questions, Christians will likely reach different conclusions about scientific data, regardless of how carefully they research the topic. By examining important background assumptions, my intent is to help make conversations about Christianity and science more fruitful.
Key Words: Christianity and science, biblical interpretation, concordism, theistic science, philosophy of science
