Dear Paul,

I applaud your view expressed in the above title. My approach is also to recouncile scientific and religious thought. But I tend to do it in reverse. I find that scientific thought is often ambiguous and that religious thought can resolve the ambiguity.

My favorite example is Feymann's use of particles coming back from the future as a basis of his Quantum Electrodynamics (QED). The same theory can also be derived from a wave basis, but it is much more difficult. Here the existence of prophecy and free will in religion suggests that time goes only goes forward.

Another is whether gravitational fields ( or waves, same thing) exist. Einstein's General Theory of Relativity (GR) suggests that gravity waves do not exist but that instead space time is curved and dynamic. (e.g.,Black holes are where space is absorbed faster than the speed of light). All other theories postulate gravity waves in a flat space.

However, I do not know of scripture that clearly resolves this ambiguity.
