Science and Christianity: Close Partners or Mortal Enemies?

Overview

It's very fashionable nowadays to assert that Christianity and science are antithetical, or that God has been ruled out of science or disproven (particularly by Darwinian evolution), or that science is based on reason and evidence, whereas religion (being faith-based) supposedly cares little or nothing for same, or that one cannot consistently be a Christian and also a "real" scientist.

Overview

It's very fashionable nowadays to assert that Christianity and science are antithetical, or that God has been ruled out of science or disproven (particularly by Darwinian evolution), or that science is based on reason and evidence, whereas religion (being faith-based) supposedly cares little or nothing for same, or that one cannot consistently be a Christian and also a "real" scientist. I shall contend that not only are science and Christianity completely compatible, but that modern science would not have even gotten off the ground if it hadn't been for medieval, scholastic, Catholic thought. I shall demonstrate that the foundations of modern science in the 16th century were overwhelmingly Christian and theistic. The notion that science and religion are fundamentally incompatible is ludicrous and would obliterate science at its very roots. Includes: mini-biographies of 293 scientists and a chart of 115 scientific fields of study founded or extraordinarily advanced by Christian or theistic scientists.
