Science and religion have been fighting for a long time. Why they have to fight at all is beyond me. I suppose it all has to do with the beliefs of the person who is consuming or producing the information.
We have brains for a reason
God does not expect us to live by blind faith alone. He expects us to learn and use the wisdom we gain in our own lives and from the wisdom of generations past. That is why I love science. Science is God teaching us how his creations work.
The recent announcement by scientists regarding the billions of possible Earth-like worlds is fascinating. To be able to physically measure something that was revealed through scripture is especially fascinating, though I am not surprised by the information.
Said the Lord:
And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only Begotten. --Moses 1:33
What was once revealed only to a few prophets and apostles is being revealed to the world. It truly is an exciting time to be alive.
