In western civilization, Christianity and technological know-how are traditionally Rocks. Christianity used to be borne whilst Jesus began his ministry one of the Jewish humans.

Thereby, Christianity used to be the mum of experimental sciences. furthermore, Galileo even steered a metaphor of 2 Books, explaining the jointly explainable relationships among technological know-how and religion. regrettably, the Roman Catholic Church made a mistake by way of condemning Galileo as heretic, then to accommodate arrest and as a result died of outdated age. This left a nasty style within the mouth of scientists. With this, a schism among Christian religion and technology was once created.

In 1858, Charles Darwin released his “Origin of Species” with an “evolution theory”. The “War speculation” among those scholarly disciplines was once proposed by way of American students. numerous American atheists contributed their efforts to make the clash being even aggravate. a lot of these were prolonged to the twenty first century.

Beginning in early years of twentieth century, eminent students equivalent to Albert Einstein, John Polkinghorne, Bernard Ramm and so on endeavored d to construct bridge of mutual knowing and reconciliation among the 2 camps. Einstein acknowledged that “All religions, arts and sciences are branches of a similar tree. a lot of these aspirations are directed towards ennobling man’s lifestyles from the field of mere actual lifestyles, and top the members in the direction of freedom.” the U.S. nationwide Academy of Sciences recommended Einstein’s conviction.

In fresh years, British and American students and theologians, following either Galileo’s metaphor of 2 books and Einstein’s conviction (as given above) have endured to construct bridges of mutual figuring out and conciliation among technology and Christian religion. My e-book on “Science and Christian religion” is written as wee contribution to this noble undertaking.
