ORIGINS: ACriticalQuestion

I agree with George Murphy's last paragraph and especially the last sentence
of his Nov. 28 post:

"There are excellent _theological_ grounds for insisting upon
such "methodological naturalism." But there is also the empirical fact
that the idea has had tremendous success during the past few centuries
of scientific work. No matter how devout a Christian a scientist may
be, he or she will not be content to let some scientific problem rest
with the explanation that "God did it." Of course God did it - as God
is involved in all things! But how do we describe it in terms of
natural processes?"

I agree. This is the critical question we should be addressing.

In Christ,
