Has Science made Religion Redundant? w/ Q & A: Is God Relevant? Series (www.relevantseries.com). Includes Free Lunch.

Many people today hold the belief that science explains everything. We shall see that science has explained a great deal less than many believe, both in the natural and supernatural aspects of reality. Furthermore, it appears that logic entails a supernatural origin for nature and the laws of physics that govern nature. That being the case, God appears to be the foundation of science; He makes science possible. We shall then explore the idea that if God exists and can be known, science may be a very poor tool to tell us much about the spiritual reality that surrounds us.
