Atheism, Science and God (1 of 2) w/ John Lennox, Alister McGrath and Keith Ward

 

Philosophy, Science and the God Debate (Part 1) ‘Science disproves the existence of God’ – and thanks to high profile scientists – many people unquestioningly believe it. But top Oxford Professors, John Lennox, Alister McGrath and Keith Ward effectively challenge this widespread belief and show that science and faith in God are not incompatible. ‘Science disprovers the existence of God’ – and thanks to high profile scientists – many people unquestioningly believe it.

    Where does the quote “science disproves the existance of God” come from?

      I believe the phrase comes from the ‘new atheists’.

      See this article in Time magazine earlier this year- http://time.com/77676/why-science-does-not-disprove-god/

      A number of recent books and articles would have you believe that—somehow—science has now disproved the existence of God….

      and so I don’t leave the question unanswered, here’s the response (from the same article):

      But has modern science, from the beginning of the 20th century, proved that there is no God, as some commentators now claim? Science is an amazing, wonderful undertaking: it teaches us about life, the world and the universe. But it has not revealed to us why the universe came into existence nor what preceded its birth in the Big Bang. Biological evolution has not brought us the slightest understanding of how the first living organisms emerged from inanimate matter on this planet and how the advanced eukaryotic cells—the highly structured building blocks of advanced life forms—ever emerged from simpler organisms. Neither does it explain one of the greatest mysteries of science: how did consciousness arise in living things? Where do symbolic thinking and self-awareness come from? What is it that allows humans to understand the mysteries of biology, physics, mathematics, engineering and medicine? And what enables us to create great works of art, music, architecture and literature? Science is nowhere near to explaining these deep mysteries….”

        But that just says that some people implied it, or said it, without telling us who or when. The closest I’ve heard said is that science can disprove the existence of some gods. Mostly I’ve just heard that science offers better explanations.

          I think this is the argument Christians are making against the new atheists, that they are intellectually dishonest because they make claims and statements without proper support, Dawkins included, and that they choose to ignore evidence that has already been established.
