As an engineer, I work with a lot of smart people who are logically- and scientifically-minded. I share this perspective, so it makes for a comfortable and enjoyable environment for me. However, many at my workplace and in the larger scientific community hold to a naturalistic worldview akin to that espoused by its more vocal proselyte, Richard Dawkins. While I do not intend in this post to present a complete rebuttal to this perspective, I do want to explain how I, a self-considered “reasonable” man, can be both a devout Christian and an honest lover of science. I’ve already presented much of this in a video series that I’m almost done uploading (ran into a snag with Blip.tv and I’m migrating to Vimeo), so feel free to check it out. But I thought it’d be valuable to give a more succinct summary in writing. I considered writing an original post, but then read through an exchange I had with an atheist friend of mine a while back, and thought I’d just post it. I’ve paraphrased his comments so as not to reprint them without permission.
