Scientists and the Bible
return to letter

Unlike today's currently popular belief that God and science are completely separate, the historical facts are that science moves ahead because of Christianity. In his 1925 lectures, Alfred North Whitehead stated that Christianity is the mother of science because of "the rationality of God". Even current scientists who reject God or believe in other religions, use methods and thought processes based on the Bible--because the scientific method is based on the rationality of God. A rationality no other religion offers. So even those who deny Christianity with their mouths, support Christianity through their actions.
