“The significance and joy in my science comes in the occasional moments of discovering something new and saying to myself, ‘So that’s how God did it!’”—HENRY SCHAEFER, PROFESSOR OF CHEMISTRY.
Where Science Is Limited
Many truths about God are beyond the scope of science. To illustrate, a scientist may be able to describe every molecule in a chocolate cake, but will his analysis reveal why the cake was made or for whom? For answers to questions like that—which most people would regard as the more important ones—he needs to consult the person who baked the cake.
Similarly, science “gives a lot of factual information,” wrote Austrian physicist and Nobel laureate Erwin Schrödinger, “but it is ghastly silent about all . . . that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us.” This includes, he says, “God and eternity.” For example, only God can answer such questions as the following: Why is there a universe? Why does our planet have an abundance of life, including intelligent life? If God truly is almighty, why does he permit suffering? And is there hope beyond the grave?
Yes, the Bible does harmonize with scientific truths about the natural world. In fact, the two fields of study are more than compatible—they beautifully complement each other. To disregard either one is to leave unopened a door to the knowledge of God.—Is Science & The Bible Compatible?
R U OPEN…ing doors?! & baking cake(s)?!..
Knocked, banged, pushed open a lot of doors in my day:)… and You find/learn different things/fragile-life behind different doors…
it’s unreasonable aka stupid to think: i would find/learn the exact same thing/knowledge behind different doors.
Accurate knowledge is YUMMY aka healthy for mind/body!

Mostly want to have my cake & eat it, 2…science 1. Spirituality!:)
