I’m going to pick one thing in a couple different categories this week.
In the intellectual realm, I want to read more about fine tuning. I can’t remember if I’ve ever used this evidence in a conversation about the existence of God. I turn to irreducible complexity much more often because I’ve studied it. I own a book with information about fine tuning–I just need to pick it up. Ask me in a week if I’ve done my homework.
In the relational realm, I was challenged by Ivy’s point that many people use science as an excuse not to believe in God when their real reason lies in a completely different area. I especially appreciated what Ivy said about needing to be prayerful, discerning, and compassionate so that we have the conversations which are truly needed.
On a purely personal level, thanks, Xandra, for the violin and orchestra illustration. I loved it!
