Everybody needs to realize that the definition of "science" has changed from the search for truth no matter where it leads you, to the search for natural causes excluding the possibility of finding supernatural ones before research even begins. Science these days is just another word for Naturalism which WILL turn people away from God.

Evolution is a fairy tale for grown-ups. The evolution theory has helped nothing in the progress of science.The theory of evolution remains unproved and unprovable. Sadly, special creation is rarely taught in the schools and institutions today. Millions have opted for the second option--evolution--where it is taught in most colleges and classrooms as though it were fact. [God have mercy on souls that are teaching this lie].

True science is not against God. God invented all science. The greatest scientists of all time believed that science itself was a revelation of God's handiwork in nature. I am a physicist; a graduate from a liberal university, and steeped in the Darwinian religion. Through much Bible study, prayer and 40+ additional years of maturity, I now understand that God was right and many scientists were wrong all along.

We should avoid "oppositions of science falsely so called" (1 Tim 6:20).

Science is not against God. Some scientists are. But many others were and are strong Christians. If a scientist is seeking the truth and not his or her own agenda, no harm can come of it, because studying God's creation more fully only helps the seeker to discern the Architect.

You might wish to educate yourself on the many great Christian scientists (not the sect) who have pionered in biology, astronomy, physics, mathematics, etc.

What does saying 'I believe in God' mean? Satan believes in God.

Does it mean belief in the one God, the creator/redeemer? Does it mean belief in the Bible-Genesis to Revelation- as revealed Truth from God?

Do they claim belief but compromise His Word & reinterpret it to fit with worldly beliefs such as evolution?

If they believe in God but reject the Truth of Genesis the foundational book of Scripture then I have to doubt the reality of their faith.

No. Science is not against GOD. Science when completed will prove GOD'S word true. If your son attends a liberal college he will come out more liberal, however than does not mean lost. My son has a B.S. from a liberal college in a science and it never moved him to doubt GOD.---mima-1/7/2006

If I had your Uncle, Jeanne, I would want to know every thought in his Brilliant Mind.
A physicist's mind is a PEARL.

No science is NOT against God, some scientist are against God just like some doctors/lawyers etc. are. There are many Christian people that are sciencentist. My Uncle is a physicist and loves Jesus. It is a tougher road but with strong resolve it can be done. Just like in any hardline career the Christians may be few and far between so he will need to be very strong in his faith in order to stand. But there are Christians in many tough fields. I wish him well!

Science is not against God, it is observation calculation, and reporting the findings. Science was started by christians remember and the highest Science is Theology the study of God. If he is interested in Science let him pursue it, teach him your beliefs and let him go down the path he should go. If you keep him out he will rebel anyway.

Science and Religion are in an antagonistic relationship with each other. But Scientists are not against G-d; scientists have the Creative Power within.

*rolls my eyes* Let him go. It's not your life it's his. It won't turn him against god. I'm ver science orinetated. I've sort of developed my own views where I can let science and religon be together.

Some, as they begin to study science will begin to see lifes complexity and determine that there is no way this complex creation from the atom to the cosmos had no creator and others will study science and say that molecules came into being on their own. Of all new experiences available at college i dont believe science in and of itself could cause someone to turn against God. I believe if someone said science took them away from god it would be to say that the seed had already been planted.

I know of scientists, anthropologists, archeologists, historians, and even medical physicians who strongly believe in God. Many use their knowledge to share the Bible with others. If your son is well based in the Bible, you have done your job as a parent. Be a positive in the world of negatives. and by all means, pray for/with him.

For me, God speaks to me in His creation (Psalms 8 & 19). I love that part of Him! I grew-up studying the sciences (mainly physics and astronomy) and believe that many of the lost can be drawn (not saved) to Him through [it]. For some, it's the seed. The world says, "Seeing is believing", or, "I've gotta see it to belive it".
Well then, see(k) and ye shall find! As for your son, he already knows the truth? Then studying science will help seal his faith even more!

Some people believes that Science is against God. I am in the field of Science and all of us, the faculty members of the Physics Department in the University where I am connected, believes in a God. One can be very scientific but still be believing in a God. The analytical thinking and the critical thinking of your son would be enhanced if he gets into a science course. You should not be worried. If the training he gets from you and from his family is solid enough, then you must not fear. God bless you.

Most top scientists, Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, etc, have proven to themselves that God exists. There is too much evidence in the scientific world to disprove Him. The more they try to disprove, the more they see the truth.
