No one can “search too far or be too well-studied in the book of God’s word or in the book of God’s works,” said Francis Bacon, who like other early scientists saw no conflict between pursuing both a life of faith and a career in science. Many of the founders of the scientific revolution were devoted Christians who were not interested merely in the “how” of nature, but also sought to understand the “why.”
