Darwinism makes Agnostics or Atheists

From Christianity Today, January, 2009


The scientist's problem with God did not spring from his theory.

Darwin rejected "orthodox" Christianity as practiced by the Anglicans - the use of unprovable religious dogma to gain moral dominance over impressionable minds.

As a scientist, I do not think there is a dichotomy between scientific principles and religious beliefs. The former deals with 'provable' truths and the later is an exercise of faith (unprovable belief system; no different than an atheist.

Can one believe in Jesus without the baggage of "power structure" churches perpetuated by sinful Man?

Important for us to go back to a Pauline church that is managed transparently, faithful to the word and filled with love that creates a non judgmental sanctuary for sin damaged Man?

Is your JB Church such a sanctuary?

Hi Journeyman,

As a person trained in science and theology, I agree with you that I find no dichotomy between scientific principles and religious beliefs.

In answer to your Can one believe in Jesus without the baggage of "power structure" churches perpetuated by sinful Man? , I will give an emphatic yes.

As for my JB Church, we are not there yet but we are working hard on it.
