Title

Can Science Answer Life’s Big Questions? The Error of Allowing Naturalism to Dictate our Origins Models

Publication Date

2017

Abstract

The modern tensions between Christianity and science stem mainly from the philosophical assumption of methodological naturalism as a filter for proper “scientific” answers, even for answers to the Big Questions regarding our origins. The pressure to conform to this secular religious view and the way naturalism skews the interpretation of scientific data may unwittingly drive some Christians to propose and defend inconsistent biblical interpretations like theistic evolution.
