Learning to Value Science: A Journey

It can sometimes feel as if science needs to be justified by a useful outcome or reason other than simply exploring the world in itself. This was certainly the case for Bob Sluka, who struggled to see science as an integral part of his life as a Christian. Over time, he has learned that science is important in itself, and can be part of a Christian’s worship of God. In this podcast Bob shares his thoughts on this, and his experiences of awe in the ocean.

To find out more about Bob’s work and faith, and the importance of beauty, wonder and awe in both science and Christianity, see God in the Lab: How Science Enhances Faith (Monarch, 2015).

    Hi.as you say there is no such thing as good/bad science.Christian science which is often criticised is just as valid as evolution with elements in common.
    However ,there is such a thing as good/ bad scientist whereby evidence against/ for a theory is ignored & this evidence is not considered or reviewed just because it ain’t popular/ beneficial/ financial interest .

    A good scientist should review all possible theories whether its popular or not.
    Independence in science is important with debates/ different views/ interpretions of evidence / text supported.

      Thank you Michala. I should point out for sake of clarity that Bob Sluka is not doing any different sort of science – just regular mainstream marine conservation. He tells it well in the podcast!
