Science teacher classroom resources on the Nature of Science
Do any scientists believe in God?
Lots of scientists throughout history have had a deep, personal faith. And that’s still true today.
Many of these scientists see science as a way of learning about the things they believe God has done and made, and continues to do and make.
Take a look at our list of scientists with faith to meet just a few of them!
We are free to explore the universe with joyful curiosity, relying on God’s faithfulness, discovering the wonderful ‘how’ and ‘when’ of creation, about which scripture tells us ‘who’ and ‘why’.
Science is limited to characterizing the regular workings of the natural world, and does so very well. But I believe there are profound truths that science is just not equipped to address, such as questions of purpose, God, meaning, and how we should live
