"Why I’m a Man of Science—and Faith"

Francis S. Collins, a physician and the geneticist behind the Human Genome Project, is the director of the National Institutes of Health. He is also founder of the BioLogos Foundation (, a group that fosters discussions about the intersection of Christianity and science.

Are science and religion compatible?

I am privileged to be somebody who tries to understand nature using the tools of science. But it is also clear that there are some really important questions that science cannot really answer, such as: Why is there something instead of nothing? Why are we here? In those domains I have found that faith provides a better path to answers. I find it oddly anachronistic that in today’s culture there seems to be a widespread presumption that scientific and spiritual views are incompatible.

When people think of those views as incompatible, what is lost?

Science and faith can actually be mutually enriching and complementary once their proper domains are understood and respected. Extreme cartoons representing antagonistic perspectives on either end of the spectrum are often the ones that get attention, but most people live somewhere in the middle.

You’ve said that a blooming flower is not a miracle since we know how that happens. As a geneticist, you’ve studied human life at a fundamental level. Is there a miracle woven in there somewhere?

Oh, yes. At the most fundamental level, it’s a miracle that there’s a universe at all. It’s a miracle that it has order, fine-tuning that allows the possibility of complexity, and laws that follow precise mathematical formulas. Contemplating this, an open-minded observer is almost forced to conclude that there must be a “mind” behind all this. To me, that qualifies as a miracle, a profound truth that lies outside of scientific explanation.

Everything that has a beginning has a cause.

A cause as defined by whom?

I would say - the observer.

I opined 2 cents....we as humans are limited by our own ability to "measure".......whether it be something tangible (our 5 senses) or intangible (emotional state, conceptual intelligence)......however, we as humans have been able to some degree, "measure" how vast our universe is. coupling that with the ability to "measure" the state of large numbers, and combined with the study of astrogeology and astrobiology, we can logically theorize there may be alien life forms similar to ours. again, following the concept of large numbers, there is a probability these species could include higher forms of "measurement" in their species.....ones we might have difficulty to even understand, let alone emulate.....this raises the question (for us anyway), as to what can be considered "a life form".....

First, we don't know if "the infinite" even exists.

Then how can anything exist?

If the infinite dont exist, nothing should exist.

Second, science could one day reach beyond that.

Probably not, science is Limited to the speed of light.

There is also the possibility that our expanding universe is all that exists,

If Our universe is all that exists. How did it have a beginning?

Within science Our universe is all that exists, because Our universe is all it can observe. Anything else byond it becomes assumtions. That is why you would bring that up.

and if that's the case, there is no limit to science and the universe is not infinite

Our universe is not infintie so there is a limit to science. Science is Limited at present time and will always be laging behind expansion/time it self.

why would you expect them to have picked up another possible expanding bubble on sensors?

Well i would expect that from them since science always talk facts based on Research. But in this case science is preaching religion.

No, not if you observe the timeline from the very beginning. At some point in the timeline the effect would look like the cause. THat is because it is not possible to look past it.

Those who believe in any of the abrahamic faiths in light of our current understanding, are no different than flat-earthers, either ignorant or willfully ignorant.

To the contrary, I find it way ahead of our time. In fact I think, we're just catching up to it - with the help of modern technology.

If you knew anything about science and technology, you would know that both are neutral and draw no conclusions other than what the evidence demonstrates. If you have evidence to the contrary, please present it.

You posed a question in your original post which is mindless.

If something has no cause, does it have a beginning?

The answer is no because the "something" would be infinite. It would have no beginning and no end. And since there's no evidence for absolute infinity, the question is a moot point. So unless you can present evidence to the contrary, why don't you fold up your tent and head for Ken Scam's Ark and take a vacation.

absolute infinity

You're not making any sense.

What is an "absolute infinity" when infinity have no absolutes?

It'd be like saying infinity+1 or -1.

In fact there's only one to chose from:

Space is either: 1. Infinite. or 2. Finite. Evidence shows the former.

What? No evidence? I'm shocked!!

Ditto Spy66!

But let's see if you can grasp this - let's assume the multi-universe theory.

If such universes do exist - what separates them from each other?

I have no idea what separates them, if anything. But since you asked the question, I presume you know the answer. So let's have it. What separates them????

Nothing because such concept doesn't make sense. There's no point to it - it's like asking what's infinity +1.

Then how can anything exist?

If the infinite dont exist, nothing should exist.

How do you know this? If something is eternal, it is not necessarily infinite. Those are 2 different concepts. Time started with the big bang, so anything existing before would technically be eternal but that doesn't mean it is physically infinite.

Probably not, science is Limited to the speed of light.

So what? That might not be the case in the future, and even it is, everything is limited to the speed of light per the laws of physics, so that might not even be an issue. Think of wormhole physics. They are theorized to be able to traverse great distances without actually moving faster than the speed of light. If science can figure this out in another couple hundred years, then all bets are off and the speed light is no longer an issue. You are looking at science as if it's at the top of it's game and can't possibly improve itself far beyond our current understanding.

If Our universe is all that exists. How did it have a beginning?

We don't know that the universe began, it could be eternal.

Within science Our universe is all that exists, because Our universe is all it can observe. Anything else byond it becomes assumtions. That is why you would bring that up.

Yes, it's assumptions. Just like "the infinite".

Our universe is not infintie so there is a limit to science. Science is Limited at present time and will always be laging behind expansion/time it self.

Not true. Science isn't even close to the pinnacle of understanding. I'll believe that when science stops gaining knowledge, but until then you can't really rule it out.

Well i would expect that from them since science always talk facts based on Research. But in this case science is preaching religion.

No it's not. It's acknowledging possibilities. Science doesn't know everything yet.

Time started with the big bang

I think it is very important to state that "Our" universal time started With the Big Bang. Time existed prior to the Big Bang. And it is also very easy to predict what that Space time would be like, since it allowes Our universe to expand With in it. It also might explain where the dark matter comes from.

Since Our universal void of space is basically a vacuume and expanding. It is easy to predict what kind of time Space Our universe was formed within. THe Big Bang took Place in a void of Space that is a absolute vacuum or at at least a vacuum void that is much much purer then the vacuum of Our expanding universe is. Our universe would not expand if the void of Space surrounding ours was greater then the vacuum void of Our universe. And since the expansion is speeding up i would predict that the Space surrounding Our universe is a absolute vacuum. A absolute constant. Our universe would not expand equally in all directions if the the void surroundig Our universe was not a absolute vacuum. A absolute constant.... that should be common sense.... too.

Scientifically i know a absolute vacuum creats a great deal of problems for science. Because they can not create it or observe it within Our universe. But that should be common sense to every body why that is....

So what? That might not be the case in the future, and even it is, everything is limited to the speed of light per the laws of physics,

Science is basically Limited to all Our universal laws. All of them, and there is no acception.... ever. That should be common sense too.... There is no way science can break the laws and still work. Not now and not in the future... I Guess that is why it is called science in a sense..... And that is why science is Limited to only study Our universe.

We don't know that the universe began, it could be eternal.

Well then you have a issue With science dont you.... because the timeline of Our expansion would disagree With you. Becasue when you go back in time Our universe had some kind of a beginning. It can't be scientifically explained yet that is the only reason you bring that up..... And that sort of limits science does it not?
