Atheists say the reason why people throughout history have believed in God is because these poor ancient people were ignorant of scientific facts. Atheists today do not acknowledge any connection between faith and reason. They think a believer has no ability to think rationally. It boils down to all the believers must be devoid of any real understanding of science. The irony of it all is that even the quickest glance at history shows that the whole discipline of rational thinking on this planet, as well as almost all our scientific knowledge, comes from the minds of men and women who believed deeply in God.
Questions for further thought:
1. Have you ever felt belittled because of your faith from someone who wasn’t a believer?
2. Were you able to defend yourself or your intelligence?
Challenge: Read or extend your knowledge this week on something that connects God and science.
