Can Religion and Science Coexist? Former NC Governor Says Yes, Again, in His Revised Book
Monday, Sept. 13, 2021
Former North Carolina Gov. James Martin's 2016 book "Revelation Through Science," takes a deeper look at the relationship between science and religion and has recently been revised.
In a 2017 interview, when asked about the "shift toward reconciliation" between science and religion, Martin said, "You had prominent atheists saying that if you believe in evolution, you don't need God. And to counter that, the Christian Creationists, they often call themselves, with the literal interpretation of the Bible, said, well, if you believe in God, you don't need evolution — and you can't believe in both. And I'm saying, yes, you can — evolution is the best understanding we have from science as to how God did it."
We take a deeper look at what has been added in this revised version of "Revelation Through Science." We'll also talk about Martin's relationship with science, religion and how religion has inferred with science and politics in the past and present.
