We are told that science and religion are wholly incompatible and that those of us who profess faith in God are unwilling to bend our wills to the truth.
In this highly gratifying book, scientist Dr. Gerard Verschuuren flips this assertion around, showing time and time again how it is not the Christians, but rather the scientists, who are unwilling to incline their wills to the truth when it presents itself.
Dr. Verschuuren helps us to recognize science’s limited scope, how it is restricted to what can be dissected, measured, and counted. It is not the only pathway to knowledge.
Science operates within the realm of nature. It cannot, therefore, make aesthetic judgments or moral judgments or draw conclusions about the supernatural, which is, by definition, beyond the realm of nature. Science is likewise ill-equipped to explore ethereal concepts such as beauty and love. It explores only the how, never the why.
But science can, and does, point us in the direction of the Creator. With clear, well-documented explanations, Dr. Verschuuren carefully guides you through the fields of science, identifying the many “hints” and “signs” of God’s existence in genetics, neuroscience, behavioral science, semantics, logic, and math. Taken together, these hints provide an overwhelming case for the existence of God that is practically impossible to deny.
How Science Points to God teaches you to approach scientific processes and discoveries with a mind of faith, bringing you to a far deeper understanding of who we are and how we came to be. In this way, science is moving us toward ultimately proving the existence of God, while inspiring and intensifying our faith along the way.
