"Too often, for instance, preachers make comments such as, "scientists say," and then proceed to characterize science negatively. Too often, scientists are looked at suspiciously when it becomes known they affirm evolution, the big bang, the latest in neuroscience or evidence for human contribution to global warming. Too often, young scientists in the Church feel forced to choose between the best in science and Christian faith. Although the old saying is simplistic, we need to revive the notion that scientists can "think God’s thoughts after Him,'" - Thomas Jay Oord, "10 Reasons Christians Should Care About Science," Relevant magazine.
