Flowcharts for Science and for Faith


This came in an email from a neighbor.  It’s from href="http://www.freethoughtpedia.com/wiki/Main_Page">FreeThoughtPedia.com

While not as sophisticated as href="http://scienceblogs.com/ethicsandscience/2007/02/scientific_and_unscientific_co.php">Janet’s
treatment, I think it is amusing.  Image below the
fold.

    As a Christian and a science lover I do have to admit that I do see way too much of the, ignore contradicting evidence, step being used! LOL! I like the science flowchart much better!

    As I become immersed in my studies (mainly biology) and being a Christian at the same time, I would have to disagree with your flowchart. I find that more often than not the Secular scientist ( becuase scientist and christian are not mutually exclusive ) will find new evidence, fossil’s with no decomposed tissue or the fact that C-14 is found in what they think should be millions of years old. And simply toss it if it doesn’t fit. And the problem I see from my professors and a lot of my co-students is when something like this comes up that does not fit the current theory, Instead of “revolution” as the flow chart puts it. There is ignoring of the new evidence that does not fit what they are expecting. So we are stuck with this theory that could not only be so much better, but we are constricted to not attempt any NEW theories. It is really rather frustrating. This is just my observation. There are a lot of Christian’s who don’t know or don’t care. But at least they are always willing to say they have a starting point and they will not budge. Instead of pretending that they are open to new ideas and new evidence; which so many “scientist” are not. Here’s hoping that we will at least listen to new ideas. Galileo was laughed at and ridiculed, lets try not to follow in the footsteps of the society of his time.
