I am a scientist and I am a follower of Jesus.
People often assume that I am in conflict because of this. They think that science and faith are in opposition.
I certainly do not think that.
In both science and Christianity, I am trying to understand the world we have. I’m looking for the truth. The truth cannot conflict with the truth.
I suppose people who cling to a young earth creationism have a conflict with science. But YEC is not Christianity; it is an aberration of belief, unwarranted by good biblical interpretation.
Truth found in the search requires a commitment to the finding. Thus, I am all in as a disciple of Jesus. My commitment does not waver. I will follow him.
