Critical consideration of scientific and Christian methodology indicates which should be most powerful, but this . Barton E. Dahneke received degrees through the P. in mechanical engineering, taking many courses in physics, chemistry, and mathematics.

Critical consideration of scientific and Christian methodology indicates which should be most powerful, but this image is drastically distorted when history is consulted. Dahneke has worked in corporate and government laboratories in the USA and Germany and in academe.

In its fundamental belief, science is unchanging. Dahneke, the author, uses descriptions and evaluations of scientific methodology that are fundamental and timeless, and maintain its validity despite the ever-evolving nature of scientific knowledge. Pertaining to knowledge, new science is drastically different from old science. To compare the essence of scientific versus LDS belief (represented in the book as the doctrine of Christ ) requires strict and thorough care in the evaluation of both, particularly and ultimately at the level of essence or meaning. This requires an author who has thought deeply and broadly in both. Dahneke is that person.

and Give Two Examples : A Comparison of Scientific and Christian Belief. by Barton E.

Define Universe and Give Two Examples : A Comparison of Scientific and Christian Belief. Many scientists and others expect the mysteries of nature to soon (or at least eventually) be understood in terms of a few general and fundamental principles, theories, and laws of science. One such theory is called a Theory of Everything (TOE) and also a Grand Unified Theory (GUT). We summarize the power of science and the considerable knowledge obtained by it, both of which properties make science a fascinating topic of study.

This is a rare and powerful book for those interested in both an up-to-date and ageless comparison of science and religion. In its fundamental belief, science is unchanging. I found the difference surprising and refreshing.

Many scientists and others expect the mysteries of nature to soon (or at least eventually) be understood in terms of a few general and fundamental principles, theories, and laws of science. One such theory is called a Theory of Everything (TOE) and also a Grand Unified Theory (GUT). We summarize the power of science and the considerable knowledge obtained by it, both of which properties make science a fascinating topic of study. However, neither scientists nor philosophers have yet established the nature of an underlying material reality. Indeed, science has yet to resolve any issue on a universal or absolute basis. Each deeper level of insight reached in science has brought deeper and broader confusion about the nature of reality. Students of science therefore draw from an ever expanding reservoir of knowledge but confront ever deeper and more curious questions and increasingly profound uncertainty.And many regard utterly abominable moral abuses in post-apostolic Christianity (and in religion more generally) as well as present confusion as disqualifying religion as a reliable path to or source of truth. Paul (Bible: 2 Timothy 3:7) foresaw our day and warned that in the last days (now) men shall be ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth . This description fits well all of science and most of philosophy and today s religions. How, then, is one to establish truth?We address this question in this book by first summarizing science to its present frontiers of TOE/GUT research. We simultaneously consider fundamental limitations in science-based knowledge. Likewise, we consider confusion and its origins in current Christianity, but largely avoid them in plumbing Christian meaning using critically-important Christian doctrine and principles. To a lesser degree we consider philosophy and its poverty of utility for establishing truth.Scientific and Christian methodologies for establishing truth are examined and compared. Individual and comparative examination provides important insights into both. Critical consideration of scientific and Christian methodology indicates which should be most powerful, but this image is drastically distorted when history is consulted. We consider what went wrong.Both science and today s orthodox Christianity severely limit the discovery of truth while the original, uncorrupted Christianity described in the Bible does not. We consider Biblical doctrine and practice for establishing truth and, in this light, criticize both science and today s orthodox Christianity. We also consider one Christian denomination that gets the methodology right.

I read this book cover to cover. I underline so much it really is quite an amazing book. I've shared it with many of my friends who are atheists or analytical thinkers. Quite a large book but made you think deeply which I enjoyed.

I am a life-long Christian and also a person who has spent a great deal time studying physics. But over the years I have become extremely disillusioned by the seeming incompatibility between Christian thought and the scientific approach. This book was a godsend for me, in that it helped me to put each of these two disciplines in their place. Dahneke, who is both a devoted Christian and an accomplished scientist, goes to great lengths to point out the strengths and weaknesses of Christian and Scientific methodology in the search for truth. He ultimately concludes that the two are not as incompatible as many think.

The book is divided into three sections. First it defines the great questions that have puzzled mankind throughout history: Who and where are we in the scheme of things? What is the universe and how did it come to be? What role does culture play in our perception of reality?

Next Dahneke explains how scientists through the ages have tried to answer these questions and what they have discovered. He talks at great length about the contributions of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and others.

And third, the paradigm of Christianity is explored. How do we, as Christians, approach these questions? What meanings can we derive from the scriptures, and what conclusions can be drawn?

Be warned that this book is not light reading. It was written by a christian research scientist who has dedicated his life to the search for truth through his religion and his science. Along with quotations from the scriptures there are long discussions of the great scientific discoveries. It took me a month to work my way through the 661 pages of fine print, but reading it was a fascinating experience.
