on the right road but headed the wrong way

Thanks to Bryon Morgan who alerted me to this post on religion and science from NPR. The author rightly sees the need for science to overcome its self-imposed handicap of materialistic naturalism, but he doesn’t know how to do it. He thinks it should be possible to restore wonder, passion, and value to the world without resorting to belief in God. Of course, he doesn’t attempt to explain how.

This essay gets so much right. Mostly it demonstrates the futility of any worldview that does not begin with God. We weep for a man who sees so much and yet seems totally lost. And we thank him for suggesting an excellent conversation starter with our non-Christian friends.

  1. Perhaps our scientist friends should read Kuyper’s Stone Lectures or John Paul II’s Fides et Ratio for a start.
