Re: "As a Christian and Scientist"

Now there's an oxymoron.

Not at all. Science and religion have no overlap, despite what a lot of Humanists seem to think. Just because you're familiar with the laws of physical reality as we know them and try to discover the ones we don't know yet doesn't mean you can't believe someone wrote them. In fact I've heard more than one prominent scientist talk about how it seems like someone's fiddling with the dials on some of the universal constants. Likewise there's no reason that just because you believe in a higher power you can't also be knowledgeable about science.
