It is true that now both Christians and atheists can do good science.
However, it might be that only those who believed in a Creator and wanted to
know His work would develop experimentation. One can assume that the
question of origins is a scientific question and proceed with it. However,
that assumption does not make it so if it isn't. If God created out of
nothing, how can science come up with that fact from the purely scientific
side? It is interesting, however, that the notion of creation out of nothing
is creeping into physics. What makes you think that the question of origins
is truly a scientific question? Is that self-evident to you?
