“Surprisingly now, over a half a century later, time symmetric approaches to electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, gravity, and cosmology might be consonant with the kind of eschatology that a theist such as Pannenberg supports.” 0 likes
“If ours is a world of epistemic distance, then just as historical and personal events can be interpreted both theistically and atheistically, so should science, the theistically neutral epistemic tool for discovery in nature, be interpretable both theistically and atheistically. Thus ours is a world in which “theology and science” is not only intellectually possible but actually required if we are to make a scholarly and convincing case for a theistic interpretation of natural science that is more robust than its atheistic interpretation. In sum, a world created by God for the possibility of moral growth is also a world in which science is possible and a world in which the field of “theology and science” is required to produce a convincing theistic interpretation of science against its competitors.” 0 likes
