Answering: Scientist and Science disregard God

There is a climate in the last several years that, in general, scientist and science do not agree with God. Even further, this point is stretched often to state that science doesn’t need God, never did nor does it conclude logically that God should be in anyway referenced in science. These arguments form atheism will be shown faulty in the coming article.

Science has always been about seeking God and finding out what He did to make the universe so uniquely beautiful. Science has never abandoned the idea that God exists nor has it set out to disprove such a thing. Atheism tries to take science hostage and use it for its own self-will gain but makes a grand mistake in both history and fundamental logic.

Here is a brief list of the founders of specific science fields that were Christians.
Isaac Newton, Dynamics
Johan Kepler, Astronomy
Robert Boyle, Chemistry
Lord Kelvin, Thermodynamics
Louis Pasteur, Bacteriology
Matthew Maury, Oceanography
Michael Faraday, Electromagnetics
Clerk Maxwell, Electrodynamics
John Ray, Biology
Carolus Linneaus, Taxonomy

but the list continues into more specific fields…

Oceanography, Maury
Optical Mineralogy, Brewster
Paleontology, Woodward
Pathology, Virchow
Phys. Astronomy, Kepler
Reversible Thermodynamics, Joule
Statistical Thermodynamics, Maxwell
Stratigraphy, Steno
Systematic Biology, Linneaus
Thermodynamics, Kelvin
Thermokinetics, Davy Vertebrate
Paleontology, Cuvier

This list has only grown and will continue to grow. The idea that Scientist were not originally seeking answers in science for the sake of God is starting to be erased and compounded. The Fathers of Science both modern and specific, were Christians. Here is what some of them had to say about God:

Robert Boyle (Founder of Modern Chemistry): “God [is] the author of the universe”

Joseph Taylor (Nobel Prize in Physics, 1993) Quote: “Our knowledge of God is made larger with every [scientific] discovery we make about the world.”

Paul Davies (Physicist) Quote: “It may seem bizarre, but in my opinion science offers a surer path to God than religion.”

Lord William Kelvin (Physicist, Thermodynamics) Quote: “I believe that the more thoroughly science is studied, the further does it take us from anything comparable to atheism.”
“If you study science deep enough and long enough, it will [bring] you to believe in God.”

Sir Joseph J. Thomson (Nobel Prize in Physics) Quote: “The truth of [this] is emphasized by every advance in science that ‘Great are the Works of the Lord’.”

Max Planck (Nobel Prize Winner, Physics) Quote: “Both [Christian] religion and science require a belief in God.

James Maxwell (physicist, electromagnetism) Quote: “I have looked into most philosophical systems and I have seen that none will work without God.”

Paul Dirac (Nobel Prize in Physics) Quote: “God is a mathematician of a very high order and He used advanced mathematics in constructing the universe.”

Werner Heisenberg (Nobel Prize in Physics) Quote: “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.”

Albert Einstein (Nobel Prize in Physics) Quote: “I’m not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist.

Johannes Kepler (Astronomer, Mathematician) Quote: “God wanted us to recognize them [God-created natural laws] by creating us after his own image so that we could share in his own thoughts…” “Those [God-created natural] laws are within the grasp of the human mind.

Charles Darwin (Theory of Evolution) Quote: “The question of whether there exists a Creator and Ruler of the Universe has been answered in the affirmative by some of the highest intellects that have ever existed.” “[To explain the universe] I feel compelled to look to a First Cause having an intelligent mind in some degree analogous to that of man; and I deserve to be called a Theist.”

Henry Schaefer (Quantum Chemist, 5 time nominee for the Nobel Prize) Quote: “It is relatively unusual that a physical scientist is truly an atheist.”

Louis Pasteur (microbiology, immunology) Quote: “The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.”

Albert Einstein (Nobel Prize in Physics) Quote: In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people [atheists] who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.”

These quotes are just a few on a list of so many more. These titans of science, immense thinkers, greatest researches of our world have concluded that not only does God exist but He is the cause of our universe. We must combat Atheism and their faulty claims every chance we get. Science is not the enemy as many Christians today think. God leaves man accountable according to His creation (Romans 1) which inherently implies that we, like Adam, have the capacity for science and the methods contained.

To conclude, science and scientist regard God as their exploration. God is not buried, disregarded or left behind in the wake of science. Rather the opposite.
