Week Two of our July Series on Science and Religion takes us into the waters of “Trust” and “Faith”. Carl Sagan defines superstition as believing something while lacking evidence. We won’t go into great detail on each of them, but lurking underneath our message this Sunday are the Proofs for the Existence of God.
Scientists are sticklers for two things: Evidence, and Consensus. It is a most relevant question to ask: Is there evidence for the existence of God? But one has to be extremely careful with such “evidence”. Humans of every stripe, not just the religiously inclined ones, are subject to intense pressures from emotions and from our will to believe what it is we want to believe – regardless of the evidence..
This week: “Trust And/Or Faith”. Get your brain in gear. Let’s commit to doing two things together today – Let’s Worship; and let’s Think!
