Why Don’t More Scientists Believe in God?

Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. Psalm 111:2

Can science tell us anything about God? And if it can, do we trust it more than the Bible? Are faith and science at war, always? Dr. Francis Collins doesn’t think so. The outspoken Christian led the Human Genome Project to successfully map the entirety of man’s genetic code, and he’s spent the last 6 years as the director of the National Institutes of Health. Coming from both disciplines, he knows the contention of faith and science, God and man, all too well. So what’s the big idea? Scientists find it hard to believe in God, really, and that’s because they don’t really understand what faith does.
