I ran across this radio program today in a physics section:
Angels: Where Science Fears to Tread
I haven't listened to it yet, because they are charging for it. I realize that when talking science and religion, a lot of people see it as being incompatible subjects. I do not share this view. I took a physics course earlier this year and can't wait for my next one that will go into more depth. Most people say that a topic such as physics will destroy my faith, however, it has strengthened it ten-fold. The mechanics of this universe is astounding and yet, 99.9% of everything we know of, follows a certain set of rules extremely strictly. To me, this can only be the work of God.
The program description says how Thomas Aquinas' discussions on angels, parallels today's discussion on physics and that angels may have a big part in governing the universe.
I believe that we are going to come full circle one day with religion and science and they will be completely compatible topics.
Oh... I am Catholic and consider myself decently knowledgeable. I know I may be the minority when it comes to my views on science, but I always submit to the magisterium's teachings and even on things that the magisterium hasn't spoken on, i am real careful to keep an open mind, because I realize that some scientists are scientists purely to attempt to debunk religion..
Enough rambling... any thoughts?
