I found this post by StarStryder (Dr. Pamela Gay) discussing her position as a Christian and a scientist.
I appreciated her position, because, after many years, I’ve arrived at a similar place in my walk through this life. I’ve spent many years in conservative evangelical/pentecostal churches. We left church a few years ago, finding that what organized religion teaches is more about maintaining organized religion than what Jesus taught.
Since then, I’ve found that most of the supposed evidence used by religious people to argue against particular scientific positions is either a result of bad science, or just plain lies. I’m not so much a scientist as an engineer, but the basic rationale is similar.
I think of engineering as applying scientific principles to create something new (machines, chemicals, energy sources…).
