Reviews - What do customers think about Worlds Apart: The Unholy War Between Religion and Science?
Science plus Religion: they're not mutually exclusive Feb 21, 2003
For a long time we have been told that science and religion are two opposing camps, each offering a competing view of reality, either with science steadily replacing God as new discoveries are made, or with the entrenched defenders of the faith battling against the onslaught of atheism. This warfare mentality is no more evident than in the debate about creation and evolution. Highly vocal advocates on one side or the other would have you believe that you have to choose between your faith and science.
Worlds Apart presents a challenging and welcome alternative to this "either-or" mentality. Drawing upon examples from the history of science and the history of the Church's response to new scientific discoveries, Dr. Giberson argues that science and religion do not offer competing answers to the same questions about reality. Instead, each answers different categories of questions that together offer a much more complete view of reality than either can alone. The conflicts arise only when we try to make the Bible an authority on questions that belong to science, or when we try to make science answer questions that belong in the realm of religion. Creation and evolution should be seen therefore, not as mutually exclusive alternatives, but rather as complementary answers to different sorts of questions.
Written in a clear, concise and easy to read style, and honoring both science and the Bible, this book is a good starting point for anyone who is searching for a way to incorporate both faith and reason.
Open your brain Oct 26, 2001
Giberson fully explains the "current" (nothing's changed since 94) situation. He describes the differeces between science and religion and why they are not in conflict. It is a book to read if you a struggling Christian learning about the scientific evidence and how it relates to your religion. He does not give you an outcome, only a begining to inspire you to learn more.
A Mixed View--1 Sided Deconstruction of Religion Jan 19, 2001
Giberson book does a Good job at what it attempts to do. Make science look like the guilty party and fundementalism the awful enemy. Most examples usually revolve around Science saying one thing and then an extreme fundemtalist saying its wrong. In its weakness, is the culteral perspective between The battle for science and religion is seriously missing. Thus, your left with a book that satisfy's its one goal. To deconstuct religion and make science the victor.
