Another Christian/Scientist Speaks Out

TES Connect has a story on a theoretical astrophysicist by the name of David Wilkinson, who is also a Christian minister. He has this to say:

“I’m not a creationist,” he said.

“There are certain things about the universe - that the universe is intelligible to us through mathematics, or that the laws of physics are so beautiful - that raise philosophical and theological questions.

“Creationism says that Genesis is supposed to be read as a scientific textbook. But it’s primarily a theological text, explaining that God exists.

“If science has a gap in it, the temptation is to use God to fill that gap. But I see God working through the science of the Big Bang and the science of evolutionary biology, rather than through the gaps.”

Read the whole thing. Let our voices be heard!!!
