Issues Topic

What is the issue that I want to address in my issues paper? This is a question I think all of us are thinking about. For me I have been thinking a lot about a topic from another class. That topic is of the effect of science on our belief in God. This comes from a number of places, like my psychology class and from the book Angels and Demons.  I believe that science is like what Francis Bacon said “A little science estranges a man from God. A lot of science brings him back.” Here he shows the basic understanding that science when not seen or understood in a totality will take us further from God, but as we approach this totality we will come back to see and know God. I believe that God has inspired the work of scientist throughout the ages preparing the world for the restoration and the spread of the gospel unto all ends of the earth, but we have gone too far. We have taken this little bit of science and with our “understanding” have declared God to be obsolete, which he is not. It is my goal to show how God has been around always and how we have “estrange[d]” ourselves from him. Anyways tell me what you think.   


  1. I like this there a lot of research on this type of topic? It seems like it would be hard to have solid facts to defend it.

  2. This is an awesome topic. I think it's all too easy for people to give credit for scientific advances to the human race. I agree with you that the mankind has been inspired of God in order to benefit from the innovations and inventions that are making our lives better.

  3. This is great!!! and i think this topic is great for the audience being all of us! very interesting.
