In January I started back to school. I already have a Bachelor’s degree but it is in Sociology and not a science so I have a lot of prerequisites I need to do before I can apply to the School of Nursing.
I am taking both Biology and Chemistry right now and what I cannot understand is how do scientists combine their belief in a creator with what they know scientifically to be true?
My chemistry professor has a Master’s in Biochemistry yet from what I have gathered from his Twitter account he is very much a Christian. I think he might even be Mormon from some of his tweets. I don’t want to ask him about it because even though my grades are not subjective I don’t want my lack of belief to effect his grading but also it might be slightly inappropriate.
Then my biology professor has a PhD in Marine Biology. He has to believe in evolution or how else could you really teach it to a 132 people a semester? I only know he is a Christian because I am sure that is not a T he is wearing on his neck everyday.
How do you believe in evolution and the story of Adam and Eve at the same time? How can you even be part of a culture that has people actively calling your kind (scientists) fakes and in cahoots with Satan to fool the public in not believing in god?
Like I really do not get it.
