Can Science Be a Religion?

Religion is a touchy topic within the scientific community. Science, meanwhile, can be just as sensitive a topic within some religious communities. Are there times when the two overlap? When fervent belief in science functions much like devout faith? Trace investigates.

Even though the ancient and medieval worlds did not have conceptions resembling the modern understandings of "science" and "religion", certain elements of these modern ideas are found throughout history. It was in the 19th century when the phrases "religion and science" or "science and religion" first emerged in literature. This coincided with the refining of "science", from the studies of "natural philosophy", and "religion" as distinct concepts in the last few centuries partly due to professionalization of the sciences, the Protestant Reformation, colonization, and globalization. Since then, many have characterized the relationship as either conflict, harmony, complexity, or mutual independence. Both science and religion are complex social and cultural endeavors that vary across cultures and have changed over time. Most scientific and technical innovations prior to the scientific revolution were achieved by societies organized by religious traditions. Elements of the scientific method were pioneered by ancient pagan, Islamic, and Christian scholars. Roger Bacon, who is often credited with formalizing the scientific method, was a Franciscan friar. Hinduism has historically embraced reason and empiricism, holding that science brings legitimate, but incomplete knowledge of the world and universe. Confucian thought has held different views of science over time. Most Buddhists today view science as complementary to their beliefs. While the classification of the material world by the ancient Indians and Greeks into air, earth, fire and water was more philosophical, medieval Middle Easterns used practical and experimental observation to classify materials.Events in Europe such as the Galileo affair, associated with the scientific revolution and the Age of Enlightenment, led scholars such as John William Draper to postulate a conflict thesis, holding that religion and science have been in conflict methodologically, factually and politically throughout history. This thesis is held by some contemporary scientists such as Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss, Peter Atkins, and Donald Prothero. The conflict thesis has lost favor among most contemporary historians of science.Many scientists, philosophers, and theologians throughout history, such as Francisco Ayala, Kenneth R. Miller and Francis Collins, have seen compatibility or independence between religion and science. Biologist Stephen Jay Gould, other scientists, and some contemporary theologians hold that religion and science are non-overlapping magisteria, addressing fundamentally separate forms of knowledg ...

From Magic to Religion to Science: What's Next? Dean Radin
 
31:01
https://www.scienceandnonduality.com Humanity's first grasp of reality was based on a magical worldview. Over millennia, magic evolved into a multitude of esoteric and religious ideas. Within the last five centuries our worldview has settled upon science as the arbiter of truth. Each of these major transitions has offered more comprehensive explanations of the natural world, but each new paradigm also suppressed useful elements of previous worldviews. Based on the historical record, as well as a growing body of new experimental studies, we can now gain a glimmering of what our next grasp of reality may look like, along with its pragmatic consequences. Dean Radin, PhD (Psychology, University of Illinois), has been Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences since 2001. He previously held appointments at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, Bell Labs, and SRI International. Author or co-author of over 200 technical and popular articles, he has also written several books including the bestselling The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), and Supernormal (Random House, 2013).

Astronomer and physicist Hugh Ross gives his testimony of his scientific journey from atheist to Christianity. This video is part of the Ex-Atheist Testimoni... Real Life Church (January 18, 2014) - Hugh Ross examines modern day scientific evidence for the case for the Christian faith. Astronomer and physicist Hugh R... Atheist Scientist Becomes Christian After Researching Evidence - Hugh Ross, PhD Astronomer and best-selling author Hugh Ross travels the globe speaking on the compatibility of advancing scientific discoveries with the timeless truths of Christianity. His organization, Reasons to Believe (RTB), is dedicated to demonstrating, via a variety of resources and events, that science and biblical faith are allies, not enemies. While in college, Hugh committed himself to faith in Jesus Christ. After his study of big bang cosmology convinced him of a Creator's existence, curiosity led him to test religious "holy books" for scientific and historical accuracy. Only the Bible passed the test, therefore persuading him of Christianity's validity. Later, Hugh was surprised to discover how many people believed or disbelieved in Christ without checking the evidence. Prompted by family, friends, and colleagues, he founded Reasons to Believe in 1986, to bring scientific evidence for Christianity to light. More than 25 years later, Hugh leads a team of scholars who keep tabs on the frontiers of research with the goal of demonstrating that sound reason and scientific findings - including the very latest discoveries - consistently support rather than erode, confidence in the biblical God. Hugh shares this message through numerous books - including Navigating Genesis, Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job, and Why the Universe Is the Way It Is - as well as articles, videos, and podcasts. He has also spoken at 300 universities, 400 churches, and numerous conferences around the world. With a degree in physics from the University of British Columbia and a National Research Council of Canada fellowship, Hugh earned a PhD in astronomy from the University of Toronto. For several years he continued his research on quasars and galaxies as a postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology. In 2012, Hugh, together with Dr. Gerald Schroeder, received the Ide P. Trotter Prize presented by Texas A&M University in recognition of his work in demonstrating connections between science and religion. Outside of RTB, Hugh teaches as an adjunct faculty member at both A.W. Tozer Seminary and Southern Evangelical Seminary. He also serves as a minister of apologetics at Sierra Madre Congregational Church where he conducts a weekly apologetics class. Hugh lives in Southern California with his wife, Kathy, and their two sons.

For example, some dispute to what degree scientific method had its origins in Christian theism, or to what degree the scientific method as understood in the 21st century is compatible with religion. In the 18th century, the birth of the scientific method was largely credited to the work of Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, and John Locke. Modern history suggests that much earlier figures such as Roger Bacon and Islamic scientists also played an important role in shaping the experimental method. Thomas Jefferson wrote "Bacon, Locke and Newton... I consider them as the three greatest men that have ever lived, without any exception, and as having laid the foundation of those superstructures which have been raised in the Physical and Moral sciences". All three of these men were Christian theists who nonetheless rejected medieval Scholasticism with its synthesis of Aristotelianism and theology. Furthermore, Locke and Newton both espoused Unitarianism—disbelieving in the divinity of Christ.{{Dubious|I'm hardly a theology expert, but aren't "denying the", and either "Christhood" or "divinity" "of Jesus" clearer and less likely to be offensive and cause for argument? Some historians speculate that Francis Bacon dabbled in esoteric beliefs such as Rosicrucianism or Freemasonry. Newton saw God as a masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of creation.In his 1925 book Science and the Modern World Alfred North Whitehead argued strongly for the idea that Christianity gave the modern scientific method a boost. Whitehead also writes: "faith in the possibility of science, generated antecedently to the development of modern scientific theory, is an unconscious derivative from medieval theology". On the other hand, Bertrand Russell in his 1931 book The Scientific Outlook portrayed scientific method and theology as in conflict from the beginning, arguing that science introduced induction and therefore reasoning about the past into Western thought, and that because Galileo "questioned both Aristotle and the Scriptures, [he] thereby destroyed the whole edifice of medieval knowledge." A similar contrast of views appears in more recent publications. Christian apologist C. S. Lewis wrote in Miracles in 1947: Men became scientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator. In most modern scientists this belief has died: it will be interesting to see how long their confidence in uniformity survives it. Two significant developments have already appeared—the hypothesis of a lawless sub-nature, and the surrender of the claim that science is true. We may be living nearer than we suppose to the end of the Scientific Age. Christian philosopher Alvin Plantinga has echoed Whitehead in writing "It is important to see that our notion of the laws of nature, crucial for contemporary science, has this origin in Christian theism". Plantinga has argued that belief in God is a "properly basic belief". Christian philosopher William Lane Craig argues that scientific inquiry presupposes belief in God—required to explain why the universe is intelligible or lawful. On the other hand, philosophers such as Quentin Smith have defended the idea that the intelligibility of the universe does not need God to be explained, a position known as philosophical naturalism. Philosopher Kai Nielsen (largely quoting Sidney Hook) states that what unites philosophers who call themselves "naturalists" is that they agree that the scientific method is the proper way of fixing beliefs, that it is the o ...

The myth of conflict between Science & Religion (from WhatisMedia)
 
02:06
It's amazing how many people dislike facts. But, nearly all scholars in the history of science testify that religion was vitally integrated with science for millennia. Dr. James Hannam has a degree in physics, a Ph.D. in history from Oxford & a Ph.D. in the history of science from Cambridge University. He writes, "Until very recently, almost everyone believed scientific progress has been held back by religion. But today's historians have realized that, if anything, the popular perception is the opposite of the truth." http://www.patheos.com/Resources/Additional-Resources/Science-Versus-Christianity.html?print=1 Many other historians of science agree. "In the late Victorian period it was common to write about the 'warfare between science & religion' & to presume that the two bodies of culture must always have been in conflict. However, it is a very long time since these attitudes have been held by historians of science." Steven Shapin, Professor of Sociology at the University of California In 2011, Dr. Hannam published, "The Genesis of Science: How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution" proving great cooperation between science & Christianity. The New Scientist calls it "Well-researched & hugely enjoyable". Ruth Francis, Head of Press for Nature says, "This period has been poorly documented, & I think this makes Hannam's account all the more extraordinary. It is engaging, informative & I heartily recommend it."

But, science in those cultures eventually stopped there partly because they thought there was something "ethically wrong about science" as the scientist Robert Clark states citing the Greek legend of Prometheus. Out of ALL the 1000s of cultures & worldviews, it is not a coincidence that Christianity pioneered so much more science than anything else. It is gross injustice that those who admire science should ridicule the principles & pioneers that did the most to advance it. Bible believers pioneered most of the crucial foundations of science because they believed this world was created by an intelligent being who gave us minds & talents to use to explore & investigate His creation & apply this knowledge creatively. It's not an accident that the first known scientific experiment with a control group happened in the Bible (see Daniel 1) & that the modern scientific method, processes & most branches of science were started by people who loved God as their Creator.

Peter Harrison - The Shifting Territories of Science and Religion?
 
01:28:15
Tuesday 21 February, 7pm – 8:30pm The Shifting Territories of Science and Religion? Professor Peter Harrison FAHA with a discussion led by Prof. Alister McGrath Mathematical Institute, Oxford _______________________________________________ Discussions of the relationship between science and religion often assume that it is a relatively simple matter to establish clear boundaries for what counts as science and what counts as religion. Indeed, the idea that we can meaningfully discuss this relationship at all—whether it is conceived in positive or negative terms—relies to a large extent on our capacity to demarcate both science and religion from other activities. In this lecture I suggest that many theoretical demarcation efforts fail to capture the essence of the activities as they conducted in practice. And while this is true of science and religion in the present, it is especially true of these enterprises in the past. During the Middle Ages, for example, scientia was understood primarily as one of the intellectual virtues. The plural ‘sciences’ (scientiae) promoted the development of this mental habit which, in turn, led to the perfection of the intellect. The seventeenth century witnessed the demise of the intellectual virtues and the beginning of a process in which ‘science’ referred less to personal qualities and more to methods and bodies of knowledge. This reification of the intellectual virtue scientia parallels the fate of the moral virtue religio which, from the seventeenth century onwards, is no longer understood to be a personal quality but is reconceptualized as a system of beliefs and practices. The early modern objectification of these two virtues was a precondition for the modern relationship between science and religion, and this understanding of science and religion is a distinctive feature of Western modernity. I conclude with some reflections about what this might mean for our contemporary discussions of science and religion. PETER HARRISON is an Australian Laureate Fellow and Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Queensland. Previously he was the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford and Director of Oxford’s Ian Ramsey Centre. He has published extensively in the area of intellectual history with a focus on the philosophical, scientific and religious thought of the early modern period, and has written, more generally, on the historical relations between science and religion. Author of more than 100 articles and chapters, his six books include The Bible, Protestantism and the Rise of Natural Science (Cambridge, 1998), The Fall of Man and the Foundations of Science (Cambridge, 2007), and The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion (Cambridge, 2011). His most recent book, The Territories of Science and Religion (Chicago, 2015), is based on his 2011 Gifford Lectures and was awarded the 2015 Aldersgate Prize. _______________________________________________ This event is organised by the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion and has been made possible thanks to sponsorship from the Issachar Foundation.

Even though the ancient and medieval worlds did not have conceptions resembling the modern understandings of "science" and "religion", certain elements of these modern ideas are found throughout history. It was in the 19th century when the phrases "religion and science" or "science and religion" first emerged in literature. This coincided with the refining of "science", from the studies of "natural philosophy", and "religion" as distinct concepts in the last few centuries partly due to professionalization of the sciences, the Protestant Reformation, colonization, and globalization. Since then, many have characterized the relationship as either conflict, harmony, complexity, or mutual independence. Both science and religion are complex social and cultural endeavors that vary across cultures and have changed over time. Most scientific and technical innovations prior to the scientific revolution were achieved by societies organized by religious traditions. Elements of the scientific method were pioneered by ancient pagan, Islamic, and Christian scholars. Roger Bacon, who is often credited with formalizing the scientific method, was a Franciscan friar. Hinduism has historically embraced reason and empiricism, holding that science brings legitimate, but incomplete knowledge of the world and universe. Confucian thought has held different views of science over time. Most Buddhists today view science as complementary to their beliefs. While the classification of the material world by the ancient Indians and Greeks into air, earth, fire and water was more philosophical, medieval Middle Easterns used practical and experimental observation to classify materials.Events in Europe such as the Galileo affair, associated with the scientific revolution and the Age of Enlightenment, led scholars such as John William Draper to postulate a conflict thesis, holding that religion and science have been in conflict methodologically, factually and politically throughout history. This thesis is held by some contemporary scientists such as Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss, Peter Atkins, and Donald Prothero. The conflict thesis has lost favor among most contemporary historians of science.Many scientists, philosophers, and theologians throughout history, such as Francisco Ayala, Kenneth R. Miller and Francis Collins, have seen compatibility or independence between religion and science. Biologist Stephen Jay Gould, other scientists, and some contemporary theologians hold that religion and science are non-overlapping magisteria, addressing fundamentally separate forms of knowledge and aspects of life. Some theologians or historians of science, including John Lennox, Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme and Ken Wilber propose an interconnection between science and religion, while others such as Ian Barbour believe there are even parallels. Public acceptance of scientific facts may be influenced by religion; many in the United States reject evolution by natural selection, especially regarding human beings. Nevertheless, the American National Academy of Sciences has written that "the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith", a view officially endorsed by many religious denominations globally.

Bampton Lecture 2 Peter Harrison 2019   Science and the Disenchantment of Nature
 
01:03:08
The Bampton lectures were founded by the will of John Bampton and have been taking place in the University of Oxford since 1780. These two day conferences are open to the public as well as members of the University. They are suitable for anyone with an interest in the relationship between science and religion. The relationship between science and religion is often thought of in terms of competing factual claims or ways of knowing - evolution vs creation, reason vs faith. But arguments along these lines are rarely persuasive. Peter Harrison, the Bampton Lecturer, will argue that this is because the dialogue is an expression of commitments to implicit historical narratives about science and religion. The most common is the conflict narrative, which proposes an enduring historical conflict between science and religion. Less commonly remarked upon is a naturalism narrative, according to which there is nothing in the universe but physical forces and entities. The lectures will trace the historical emergence of these powerful narratives and the ways they have unhelpfully shaped contemporary arguments about divine action and purpose. Peter Harrison is a former Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford. He is now an Australian Laureate Fellow and Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Queensland. He has written numerous books and articles on the historical and contemporary relations between science and religion. In 2011 he delivered the Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, now published as The Territories of Science and Religion (2015). His most recent book is Narratives of Secularization (2017).

STUDY: Can Science & Religion Coexist?

Science and religion just don’t co-exist, according to a recent study by economists at Princeton University. “Places with higher levels of religiosity have lower rates of scientific and technical innovation, as measured by patents per capita,” said Roland Bénabou, the study’s lead author, told Mother Jones...

The Astonishing Story of Galileo Galilei & the Shocking Myth of the War Between Science and Religion
 
03:33
The Galileo myth posits that the great astronomer’s story illustrates the near-inevitable conflict between science and religion — or “faith and fact.” Be sure to check out the new book Unbelievable 7 Myths About the History and Future of Science and Religion - https://evolutionnews.org/2019/01/michael-keas-and-unbelievable-scientists-and-the-myths-they-cherish/ As science historian Michael Keas explains, the story is actually more complicated, nuanced, and interesting than the myth would have it. In Unbelievable, Professor Keyes explores seven myths about the history of science and faith. It’s a great read. In the case of Galileo, the scientific evidence available at the time was not at all a slam dunk for the Copernican view. His trial and house arrest by the Catholic Church were not simply a panicked religion fighting back against scientific truth. There were scientists and theologians on Galileo’s side and others against him. Unlike Giordano Bruno, Galileo was not burned. He lived out his life at his comfortable rural estate, Villa Il Gioiello, on the hillside outskirts of Florence. Which, by the way, looks like quite a place. Its name means “The Jewel.” The photo at the top shows the loggia, a room with open walls, overlooking a lovely parklike setting. Of course, as Keas emphasizes, this is still a shameful episode for the Church, but not a simple one! Yet textbooks and the media have portrayed Galileo as a martyr for science, and they continue to do so. His myth goes marching on. As we’ve seen in recent arguments with evolutionists, the mistaken notion remains highly influential: a reasonable adult must either give up religion or isolate it, like a poor sick thing, from science. Not so.

Marcelo Gleiser and Alister McGrath - 'Unknowns In Heaven and Earth'
 
01:18:55
'Unknowns In Heaven and Earth' Marcelo Gleiser and Alister McGrath. Mathematical Institute, Oxford. ______________________________ What is the meaning of Truth within an ever-shifting scientific worldview? How can we find meaning in an indifferent universe? Is there something special about being human or are we just a cosmic accident? Can physics understand the origin of the universe? Where do science and religion meet, if at all? What are the limits of human knowledge? How do we learn to cope with an always limited and sometimes uncertain grasp of our universe? How do these questions relate to the natural sciences and religion? What is the role of "epistemic dependence", and how does this relate to the field of science and religion? Presentations, Discussions, and Q&A with: MARCELO GLEISER: the Appleton Professor of Natural Philosophy and a professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College. He obtained his Ph.D. from King's College London and received the 1994 Presidential Faculty Fellows Award from the White House. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. His books have been published in 15 languages and include The Island of Knowledge: The Limits of Science and The Search for Meaning, A Tear at the Edge of Creation, and The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected.

He is the co-founder of the NPR blog on science and culture,13.7. He also directs the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement at Dartmouth College. ALISTER MCGRATH: the Andreas Idreos Professorship in Science and Religion in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford, and is Professor of Divinity at Gresham College.

The Spirituality of Science Group Bible Study with Francis Collins - Q Group Studies

Available online at: ChristianBook.com - http://zndr.vn/KlWNom Amazon.com - http://zndr.vn/KlWUQS BN.com - http://zndr.vn/KlWPwF Q Group Studies - The Spirituality of Science by Gabe Lyons with Francis Collins. In The Spirituality of Science: What Christians Can Learn From Sciene, part of Q Group Studies, your group will explore the relationship between science and faith, and you'll discuss how all Christians (non-scientists included) should be mindful, rather than uninformed or even fearful, of these issues. In The Spirituality of Science: What Christians Can Learn From Scientists, host Gabe Lyons and DVD presenters Francis Collins, Catherine Crouch, and Louie Giglio explore the difficult questions of faith and science: Is the idea of God simply a delusion and religion the main obstacle to the advancement of civilization? Is science itself anti-faith? Does evolution threaten the very tenets of Christianity? Doesn't the creation debate highlight the enmity between science and faith? Lyons and Norton Herbst then help you and the group explore—through short articles by noted authors, transcripts from Q Talks (included in the Leader's DVD and Guide), five meetings to discuss important topics related to the overall theme, and thought-provoking questions—the relationship between science and faith, and you'll discuss how all Christians (non-scientists included) should be mindful of these issues. The Spirituality of Science sessions include: Group Meeting One -- Francis Collins | The Language of God Group Meeting Two -- Alister McGrath | Science and Faith at Odds? Group Meeting Three -- Catherine Crouch | What Every Christian Could Learn From a Scientist Group Meeting Four -- Louie Giglio | Indescribable Group Meeting Five -- Group Project and Discussion Gabe Lyons is the author of The Next Christians: The Good News About the End of Christian America and the founder of Q---a learning community that mobilizes Christians to advance the common good in society. Additionally, he is the coauthor of UnChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity and Why It Matters, a bestselling book based on original research that revealed the pervasiveness of pop culture's negative perceptions of Christians. Prior to launching Q (www.Qideas.org), Gabe co-founded Catalyst, a national gathering of young leaders. His work represents the perspectives of a new generation of Christians and has been featured by CNN, The New York Times, and USA Today. Gabe, his wife, Rebekah, and their three children reside in Manhattan, New York

Whilst Bahá'í scripture asserts that true science and true religion can never be in conflict, critics argue that statements by the founders clearly contradict current scientific understanding. `Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of the founder of the religion, stated that "when a religion is opposed to science it becomes mere superstition". He also said that true religion must conform to the conclusions of science.This latter aspect of the principle seems to suggest that the religion must always accept current scientific knowledge as authoritative, but some Bahá'í scholars have suggested that this is not always the case. On some issues, the Bahá'í Faith subordinates the conclusions of current scientific thought to its own teachings, which the religion takes as fundamentally true. This is because, in the Bahá'í understanding the present scientific view is not always correct, neither is truth said to be only limited to what science can explain. Instead, in the Bahá'í view, knowledge must be obtained through the interaction of the insights obtained from revelation from God and through scientific investigation.
