From Heretic to Hero

Sometimes I can be a little controversial, as in my previous post.  If you will notice my About page, you will see a painting of Galileo, my favorite heretic.  It seems the vatican is trying to show that faith and science aren’t always opposing.  Check it out here.

So is it possible to be a faithful scientist?  What happens when it seems threatening to your church?

  1. Dude, I just read there’s a book about Henry Eyring (the older) who’s a big science guy. The book is about his intermingling of faith and science. I found it on amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Mormon-Scientist-Faith-Henry-Eyring/dp/1590388542/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231565380&sr=8-1 might be worth a read if you’re into that stuff.

  2. Thanks Randall, I’ll have to check it out!

  3. Not being catholic it doesn’t bother me. There are some thing that can test you faith that don’t conflict with the church. That is why they are called hidden things. 🙂

  4. You might want to see if you can get a copy of “Faith of a Scientist” by Henry Eyring. Henry said that if it is true, we embrace it, if it is contrary to church teachings, there is a good possibility that it isn’t true. Rember that scintific thought is changing every day as we learn more.

  5. Yes Ralph, you bring up some good comments. However, it seems that Galileo was right and the church was wrong.

  6. If you really wanna be blown out of the water, and have some time to spend, then watch this.
