I have these discussions way too often. I think many of my Christian friends are afraid to recognize science, as if it’s a challenge to God for them to believe that He and science can co-exist. In fact, I had the conversation just YESTERDAY with a man who’s not a Christian. I had to explain why science actually validates my spiritual beliefs.
Good grief, I am at odds with everyone. I don’t mind explaining myself daily, but I’d have a lot more peace in my life if I could choose a certain path: 1) pretend to be ignorant of science, or 2) pretend to be ignorant of a higher power.
I just really am going to have to keep explaining myself daily, I guess.
