As an active alumni of the University of Wisconsin Madison, I receive the On Wisconsin Magazine.
I recently read, Putting Faith in Science, which is appropriately cited here. (It would be nice if the university made those articles available cause some are of much interest)
It commented on "Intelligent Design"
On an interesting note, my journey draws me back to Plato and his natural "demiurge"
This line of thinking is for another time, and will bring some good linkages for the mind to ponder.
to quote the article " The basic argument of intelligent design proposes that the complexity of biological life is itself evidence of a designer, a higher being at work"
Now there is something for the nogin, a great Architect.
The article goes on to speak of the challenges of bringing God and Science to live harmoniously together. To me, what's the tough challenge???
Here is a valid hypothesis- I seek to prove that there is a great intelligent designer, or Architect that created the universe and all within.
So from a scientific perspective the next steps are to outline the methodology to be used to prove, or disprove this hypothesis.... simple right ;-)
Over time I shall aspire to distribute scientific experiments that can be done to build humanity up to the point where the grandiose experiment I outlined above is conceivable.
I was encouraged to hear that there is a national science society that has a program that helps with the relationship between science and religion. I shall have to keep up on the AAAS.
Anyhoot, the Intelligent Design concept struck a chord with me.
Let's see where this leads...
Intelligent Design, New Age , Science, , Religion
