Late last year I was grateful to be asked to participate in article writing for the Christians in Science (CiS) organization student magazine called 'Connect'. Six students of science across UK - including myself - took on the task of writing - from various angles - on the centralized theme which was: "Being human"… Continue reading Transhumanism and Christian Theology?
We often hear the claim (in the Western world) that science and religion are at odds with each other. Take the words of ardent atheist PZ Meyerz who asserts that “science and religion are incompatible. Simply completely irreconcilably incompatible.”1 It is easy to assume that these types of loud and proud statements are probably true… Continue reading Are Science and Religion at War as the New Atheists Claim? How History and Sociology Reject this Thesis
The short answer is not really, but of course I will need to qualify this and I will certainly aim to do so. But before I get to that…just what exactly is the ‘multiverse’ and what does it have to do with God? Does the universe look like a put-up Job? Within the last century… Continue reading Does the Multiverse Get Rid of the Need for God?
The existence of evil is probably one of the toughest challenges a Christian can face when in conversation.

Just before the events continue, Nacho and Esqueleto engage in the following dialogue: Esqueleto:… Continue reading I don’t Believe in God, I Believe in Science!
Sceptics of the Bible ranging all the way from professors such as Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking right down the average layman, seem to have acquired a unified definition of what the word faith means when it comes to the Bible over recent decades. In essence the most common definition of the word you will… Continue reading Is Christianity a Blind Faith?

"In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there… Continue reading According to Richard Dawkins and Francis Crick, Humans are Just Atoms in motion?
“Experiment [science] is the only means of knowledge at our disposal. Everything else is poetry, imagination” – Max Planck. Many people today take the position that science can answer everything.
