Why Christianity is Good for Science, Dr. Ted Davis.
October 29th, 2021. Christ Community Church, 7:00pm.
How do we understand the relationship between Christianity and science? Warfare? Partnership? Dr. Ted Davis suggests the Christian faith fill in the picture of the world coming from the sciences. Christianity, according to Dr. Davis, can help us achieve a deeper understanding of the world and how we should understand it. Biblical faith offers both a powerful motive for investigating nature and a foundation for the very possibility of scientific knowledge.
Dr. Ted Davis is the Professor of the History of Science at Messiah University. He received his B.S. Physics from Drexel University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in History & Philosophy of Science from Indiana University. He has studied and written extensively regarding the junction of faith and science, especially during the period of the Scientific Revolution, including biweekly columns for the BioLogos Forum.
