Common misconceptions about science and Christianity

In giving talks to diverse audiences about the relationship between science and Christianity here are few of the more common misconceptions I encounter about the associated issues.

  • Science involves reason, objectivity, and facts. In contrast, being Christian involves faith which is irrational.
  • When it comes to the Bible non-Christians are more objective.
  • Given there are so many religions, there is no apparent reason why I should start my investigations with Christianity.
  • The Bible says the earth is 6,000 years old. To be a Christian you have to believe this.
