Secular Science

The sad fact is that secularization of the scientific community
has arguably decreased the rate of the advance of science. Universities founded by or run by the Church study real knowledge and produce real science, because they believe God is Truth, and the cosmos was made by Him to be studied and understood. Institutions funded by the government study government-approved science, which, if not correct, is politically correct. They understand where their grant money comes from. -- Faith in the Fictional War between Science Fiction and Faith | John C. Wright's Journal

Your Say

Check out the new book "Genesis of Science" by James Hannam. He dispels most of the Christianity at war with science myths. He was recently interviewed on the Dennis Prager radio show.

The combination of Greek rationalism and Christian faith led to modern scientific pursuit. It was the interplay of both of these that were necessary for the leap forward. One without the other leads to stagnation.

A large number of counterexamples at the link:


Each and every one of these colleges is not only absolutely worthless for the advancement of science; each and every one of them is actively working against it.

I completely fail to understand why the USA, which is supposedly the most advanced country on Earth (it isn't - Japan is) has so many people living in it who believe this utter nonsense.

"God did it" is NEVER an acceptable explanation.

Fletcher, you might be a Fletcher but how are you a Christian?

You're saying scientists should check their faith at the door when entering the lab. People of faith believe in "God did it" for everything you see. It looks like you'd be OK with Soviet-like purity tests.

If you want to know why public trust in science is waning, look no further than Fletcher "Christian" here. People like science and think it's important, but not with the package deal of atheistic interpretations.
