Are God and Science Compatible?


John Stackhouse

Faced with the question of whether or not there is compatibility between God and science, Regent College Professor John Stackhouse argues against the premise of the question. Rather than reject the question wholesale, he instead provides logical progressions toward a better question: Are there good enough reasons to believe in God if I’m going to believe in the world scientifically? In dealing with the initial question, Stackhouse discusses the belief many scientists have in God, what we mean when we talk about science or God, and how a belief in God supports the discipline of science. The lecture concludes with Q&A that digs deeper into the relationship between Christianity and science, and the reasonableness of Christianity. This talk provides a theological and epistemological (study of human knowledge) foundation for science and theology.
