Well, I don’t want to waste a great post on a day where I get my lowest numbers of traffic, so I will save that for tomorrow. Anyway, I suppose some background on this series is needed.
I am a scientist. I love science. It offers us a view into the inner workings of the universe. I also have been instilled with a deep faith in God. But now, it is under siege. Many scientists cannot say that they believe in God because of public humiliation. Also, during my short life, so far, I have been through some experiences that have caused me to question my faith.
I found a book: The Language of God by Francis Collins, the leader of the Human Genome Project, and his journey of discovering God. These posts are based on several works, but feature mainly his ideas which struck a chord with me. Please, check it out. It is a great book. Other books I will be using are St. Augustine’s Confessions, just about every C.S. Lewis book out there, including The Problem of Pain, The Great Divorce, and Mere Christianity, of course, the Bible, and Rabbi Harold Kirschner’s When Bad Things Happen to Good People.
