Based on knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe, science contradicts many aspects of religion and vice versa. The contention between science and religion has been an issue of debate for decades. The very first ground on which science and religion clash is the creation of the universe itself. Religious people believe that God is the master architect of the universe, that is, God is the creator of our world as stated in the book of genesis. However, this sounds irrational to scientists who believe in evidence only.
“The movement’s leaders dress up this ideology as scientific to discredit real science.”(Hedges 5) Hedges argument against pseudoscience is that it was only created to reassure believers that evolution is not only a myth but also there is a one-hundred percent probability that it never happened backed by what they consider scientific fact. Christians need to prove the legitimacy of the bible because of the overwhelming evidence that humans were not created in God’s image, but rather one evolutionary step from primates. Pseudoscience is just another tactic used
* In 18th century, most of scientists still believed in the God who created the universe; however, they no longer believed in a personified God who actively involved in human life. * In 19th century, the conflict became the primary tone because the Creationism was severely shaken by the Cell theory, the Evolutionism, and the Law of Energy Conservation. * From 20th century to recent time, “Conflict, Independence, Dialogue and Integration”. Relationship in and after 20th century (“Fourfold Typology” mode) * Conflict: the traditional conflict has basically ended because of the developments of Catholic doctrines. The traditional conflict was replaced by a balance between Catholicism and natural science.
He observated and supported theory that earth is in the center and sun moves around. His theory had conflict with church because he wanted to change people`s way of thinking.about creation the world such as his heliocentric theory. He was arrested by the leaders of catholic church when he pushed his theory. Catholic church didn`t like it because God created everything in specific order, so they didn`t want anyone to change it. Galileo recant his theory when people who arrested him used torture tools.
“And yet it does move.” During the 16th and 17th centuries, it was illegal to say or do anything that opposed the churches opinion. When Galileo told the Catholic Church that the earth was not the center of the universe and that it revolved around the sun, the church became irate. The church made Galileo state that he was wrong, the church was right and that the earth was the center of the universe. Galileo confessed that he was wrong so he wouldn’t face death, but as he left the court, he muttered these revolutionary words—“And yet it does move”. In this quote, Galileo was saying how, even though he confessed that he was wrong about the earth not being the center of the universe, the earth does in fact move.
Spiritual philosophies are often presented in the beginning, before scientific data results are utilized to analyze religious philosophies. These discoveries of science are regularly met with cynicism. Science and religion survive in a power struggle. Science tries to dismiss religious philosophies with established technical philosophies and religion doubts the scientific philosophies with faith. Even though he was a writer, not a scientist, C.S.
Luther saw countless of advanced developments sweep across Western Europe, some changes sparked by his words. Luther was a key contributor of the Reformation the protest was the start for the development of Protestant churches. The Catholic Church had governed Europeans' lives for centuries. Because of the Protestantism crusade, the Reformation brought about social, political, and economic evolution that has greatly influenced history throughout the ages. In this paper, I will discuss Martin Luther’s background for writing the Ninety-five Theses, his stance on indulgences, and some results that happened because of the Theses.
With the church unable to produce arguments to defend the story of Genesis three against the growing number of questions about it, more and more people defected away from the church, preferring to listen to science. The Roman Catholic Church still holds to the literal picture the Bible presents us with, and holds that sin is the inherited defect that all humans are born with, because we are all descended from Adam, who committed the Original sin. This view is partially held by followers of the other denominations, but more often it is a much looser idea. For example, the Church of England does not put so much pressure on whether or not Genesis three is literal or not, rather their church leaders tend to look at what it contains slightly differently, by suggesting that whether or not the Bible is literal does not matter, as it still provides us with the means of how to live a life away from sin. Another issue that arises out from this however, is the person of Adam, is he
Also, the government could offend migrants if they are in control of the church and religion. Finally, we should practice what the bible says, and the bible definitely doesn’t say to pray in public through government. We should never mix church and state together, it creates so much tension. Just think how many migrants who come from different countries and different cultures and religions, if the government controlled the church they might not even let them come the U.S. so that would cause just devastating tension, and it could lead to World War III. How many times in the history of everything that things repeat themselves, many.
Evolution challenges all special things Christians believe in such as the belief in having a soul because God breathed the breathe of life into us and not animals. A fundamentalist view believe the creation story should be taken literally as it’s the word of God so therefore we should trust it to be the full truth rather than the word of science so therefore the theory of evolution should be rejected as incompatible with the word of God. Science has replaced religion as the main way to explain the world as science has evidence to prove evolution whereas religion has no proof but the bible which can’t be scientifically tested how can you trust something with no evidence? Evolution doesn’t need a God to explain anything. Although it’s not necessary to take the creation account literally it could be symbolic as it called creation story it could also be a summary of how God created the world.
