Cosmic Chemistry: Do God and Science Mix? 

What is the resource about?

-Lennox reviews the current debate between science and religion and updates his 2007 book, God’s Undertaker. He examines the perspective of science that Richard Dawkins espouses and shows the flaws and overreach of Dawkins’ position. Dipping into current research in the areas of math, genetics, algorithmic information theory, evolution, and systems biology, Lennox provides evidence that biblical Creation makes scientific sense.

Why is it important?

-There is a growing rift between science and scientism. Science is inching closer and closer to the recognition that life cannot arise from non-life and that there is no answer yet as to how life started, apart from a special creation. Scientism, on the other hand, makes an a priori commitment to evolution in spite of what the evidence suggests. Lennox makes it easier to refute scientism and to integrate science into a biblical worldview.

What should I do?

-It is a good idea to become familiar with the current research so that students can learn how to refute evolution using science. Dawkins and his supporters are finding it increasingly difficult to support Darwinian evolution given the new advances in science.
