C.S. Lewis, Science, and Christianity: Aslan meets Hawking?

“In science we have been reading only the notes to a poem;  in Christianity, we find the poem itself”

C.S. Lewis, Miracles

 

This is an incredibly good way to sum up the juxtaposition of science and Christianity to my mind – the science is the ‘what’, while God is the ‘why’.  You can’t have the one without the other.  You can see the physicality, for example, of evolution, of the universe’s creation, even of the platypus and Pluto.  Yet, the impetus, the reasons behind these things is where you have to include God.  I mean – the platypus – the whole debate on Pluto being possible – it is not a human mind that could have figured out all those details, and the natural order cannot totally account for it either.  A divine identity has to have thought all this out – let’s just call that identity God.  

O.k., now God has figured out the universe in ticky, incredible detail.  Are we really going to think that He has not figured out His plans for us in equally excruciating detail??  How arrogant of us!!  He knows the what, when, and where of His plans for us.  He just has to do some tweaking and revamping because of those pesky free will choices we make.
