When inventors, scientists and surgeons trust God By Dan Delzell, for Christian Post
William Thompson (Baron Kelvin) was one of the most eminent scientists of the 19th century. He said, “Do not be afraid of being free thinkers. If you think strongly enough you will be forced by science to the belief in God, which is the foundation of all religion. You will find science not antagonistic, but helpful to religion.”
When inventors, scientists and surgeons trust God, it often has a marvelous ripple effect among their peers and others.
Sir Ambrose Fleming (1849-1945) has been called a father of modern electronics. Fleming said, “There is abundant evidence that the Bible, though written by men, is not the product of the human mind. By countless multitudes it has always been revered as a communication to us from the Creator of the Universe.”
Matthew Maury (1806-1873) was a pioneer of oceanography and nicknamed “Scientist of the Seas.” He said, “The Bible is true and science is true, and therefore each, if truly read, but proves the truth of the other.”
Joseph Lister (1827-1912) is known as the father of antiseptic surgery. Lister said, “I am a believer in the fundamental doctrines of Christianity.”
You too can come to believe the truth about Jesus Christ and the Bible. If your mind is currently closed on the matter, would you be willing to start from scratch with an open mind?
Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was the inventor of the electric motor. When asked about his belief in the afterlife, he said, “Speculations? I have none. I am resting on certainties. I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day. And in a public talk on science and religion he said, “The book of nature which we have to read is written by the finger of God.”
