Hebrews 11 Now faith is the [substance, essence, reality]assurance of thingshoped for, the [c]conviction[evidence] of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old gained approval.
3 By faith we understand that the [e]worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.
For those of us who cling to belief in Jesus Christ and God’s word and presence through the Holy Scriptures we exist in a constant ‘tug o’ war’ with the so called empiricists or scientists of the world for whom life is limited to what they can measure, quantify, categorize, summarize and pigeon hole into some neatly expressed category. By its very presumptuous nature the so called discipline of science is open to criticism sort of like when a student turns in a half finished homework assignment. God love them, There is, of course, always more to discover, but the fallacy of the need for funding and the pursuit of fame always seems to eclipse the scientists true calling which is to know more and more about this world God has so graciously given us in favor of calling attentions to themselves and receiving, however grudgingly, the accolades of their so-called peers.
For the faithful there is no conflict here except with the presumptions and expressed feelings of superiority of the misnamed “scientific- community”. It’s sort of like the old joke about one religious denomination asking a heavenly angel about all the noise coming from on room in heaven. The angel goes on to describe the group in the room and in an aside remarks, “They think they’re here by themselves.”
