My interview about faith and science is online at SDPB! Of our hour-long conversation, about half an our was aired.
In case you are interested, here are some of the verses and quotations I mentioned:
- Proverbs 25:2: “It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.”
- Isaiah 42:14:
“The Lord will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.
‘For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back.
But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant.
I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools.'”
- I Corinthians 15:17-19: “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have died in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”
- Ephesians 1:17-20: “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know … the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead”
- Pope Benedict XVI: “The scientific ethos, moreover, is … the will to be obedient to the truth, and, as such, it embodies an attitude which belongs to the essential decisions of the Christian spirit.”
