Many people think that science and the Christian faith are in conflict. This booklet shows this is a misconception.

While there is no doubt that the scientific method is extremely useful, it cannot prove that only natural entities exist. Moreover, science requires deductive, inductive and causal reasoning, and these can be utilised by the Cosmological Argument to show that an actual infinite regress of cause-and-effect is impossible and that uncaused Personal First Cause (Creator) of the universe exists. The Big Bang theory is consistent with these arguments and with the Bible; and it can be regarded as a description of the process by which God created the universe.

Hence, belief in God is not based on ignorance, but on reasons. The conclusion that the universe has a Creator does not hinder the scientists from discovering how the universe works and hence progressing in their understanding of the natural world. Far from conflicting with the Christian faith, a correct understanding of science can help people perceive the reality and greatness of God.
