We live in a universe filled with wonders, from the human body to the starry sky above. Our sense of awe and curiosity has led generations of people to ask the big questions about our universe, ourselves, and our place in it all.
What comes to mind when you think of the Bible and science? Perhaps you think they are completely different subjects. Perhaps you think of conflict.
The Bible, in fact, shares a long history with the study of nature in humanity’s quest to understand the big questions. At times, biblical beliefs about God and creation helped encourage people to study the world. They even influenced the rise of science as we know it today.
