God vs. Science
A spirited debate between atheistic Biologist, Richard Dawkins, and Christian geneticist, Francis Collins, is presented in the Nov. 13, 2006 (Vol. 168, No. 20) issue of TIME Magazine. The debate is between Dawkins’ belief in Darwinian evolution and Collin’s Christian belief that biological evolution contradicts the Book of Genesis. Dawkins’ popular book against God is ‘The God Delusion.’ And, Collin’s recent supporting book is ‘The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.’
I conclude that this debate has no winner because Dawkins and Collins seem to be unaware of the work of those believers who have extended their thoughts beyond the thoughts one will find in the Book of Genesis. For instance, the Being (God) and Becoming(universe) of Plato, the teachings of Jesus Christ, the development of the Christian Trinity, the negative theology of Nicholas of Cusa, the Monadology of Gottfried Leibniz, and the prime and transfinite numbers of Riemann and Cantor will take any scientist well beyond the thoughts one will find in the Genesis. These widely accepted works cannot be eliminated in any debate on the subject God vs. Science. All of these works are discussed in my new book, The First Scientific Proof of God.
Apparently, Dawkins, Collins, and TIME magazine are not up-to-date on man’s effort to unify science and theology. In my book, science and theology form one field of thought. This means that God and science are merely different parts of the same box.
