Dr. Francis Collins

CNN.com has posted a very interesting piece by Dr. Francis Collins and how he reconciles his faith in God with his training as a scientist.

Dr. Collins is the diretor of the National Genome Research Institute.

  1. My husband is a geologist and a believer. Some people (i.e. many Christians) don’t understand how he can believe in the Bible and believe that the earth is billions of years old. But his position is the same as that of Dr. Collins.
    “I have found there is a wonderful harmony in the complementary truths of science and faith. The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. God can be found in the cathedral or in the laboratory. By investigating God’s majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship.”
    It is just that, complementary.
