Someone asked me about my views on natural selection. I was prepared for a long discussion because a few days ago, I noticed that he was reading Richard Dawkin’s book titled The God Delusion.
As I had expected, the discussion soon erupted into a debate between God and Science.
My question to him was, “Which is easier to believe if you saw a stack of coins neatly placed on the ground: Did someone place it there on purpose, or did someone drop it there by accident?”
While we cannot rule out the impossibility of the latter happening, it is easier to convince yourself that it was indeed someone who placed a product of order and sophistication there on purpose. The stack of coins symbolizes the world we are living in. It would be very sad if you tried to convince yourself with a mathematical near-impossibility, and believe that the world you are living in is just the result of a huge cosmic accident.
The truth is, God came before Science did.
Science had never, and will never be able to come out with any equation strong enough to prove God’s inexistence. Science is just a supporting tool, not a weapon of war. For eg. God gives us visions and dreams, but Science would explain that these are just hallucinations.
This allows me to conclude that, contrary to The God Delusion, God and Science can co-exist without any reason for debate because while Science may always have an argument for every supernatural occurance, it also explains how the supernatural can take place naturally.
