"Are any of you aware of any existing survey instrument which could be
employed to determine the faith/science paradigm employed by the respondents?

Thanks for your assistance."

David Bundrick


There is no 'survey instrument'. However, if you would take the time to
read the database of this listserv over the past year or so, you would be
able to identify a wide range of viewpoints here, representing at least
Bube's patterns 1, 2, 3, and 6. Of course there are only about 20-30
regular participants, so this is a small sample.

In my estimation, those who have found a way to rationally affirm both
'authentic science and authentic Christian faith' (Bube's phrase) are rare,
rare, rare.
