God new evidence

GOD: new evidence

Contents

Dishonest spinning (Bad Faith #25)

Previous: How to make a legend

In these programmes, we have been looking at the myth that science and faith are in conflict with each other.  We have looked at some key events that are supposed to show this conflict: the trial of Galileo in 1633; the ‘Great Debate’ in Oxford in 1860, between Thomas Henry Huxley and Samuel Wilberforce, and the Scopes ‘Monkey’ trial in Dayton, Tenessee in 1925.

The way people tell these stories is often spun as a story of science and faith in conflict. But the people who were there at the time would not have recognised this story.  Sometimes people tell these stories in genuine ignorance, because they have not bothered to find out the facts. But sometimes they tell these stories in a deliberately dishonest way. They do know better, but they have an agenda. They are telling them in bad faith.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
