Oracles of Science by Karl W. Giberson

Book Description

Biologists Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins, and Edward O. Wilson, and physicists Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, and Steven Weinberg have become public intellectuals, articulating a much larger vision for science and what role it should play in the modern worldview. The scientific prestige and literary eloquence of each of these great thinkers combine to transform them into what can only be called oracles of science. Curiously, the leading "oracles of science" are predominantly secular in ways that don't reflect the distribution of religious beliefs within the scientific community. Many of them are even hostile to religion, creating a false impression that science as a whole is incompatible with religion. Karl Giberson and Mariano Artigas offer an informed analysis of the views of these six scientists, carefully distinguishing science from philosophy and religion in the writings of the oracles.

Books By Author Karl W. Giberson

Abraham's Dice by Karl W. Giberson Abraham's Dice, Paperback (June 2016)

Do things happen for a reason? Is God watching over the course of events? Does the scientific discovery of widespread randomness in nature rule out any role for God? In Abraham's Dice, major scholars explore these questions from multiple perspectives.

Seven Glorious Days by Karl W. Giberson Seven Glorious Days, Paperback (November 2012)

Seven Glorious Days takes the reader on a grand ride through the history of the universe from the Big Bang, to the origin of stars and planets, to the appearance of living creatures bearing the image of God. The narrative is accessible, lively and faith-affirming.

Anointed by Karl W. Giberson Anointed, Hardback (September 2011)

Why do so many evangelicals follow leaders with dubious credentials when they have other options in their own faith? Exploring intellectual authority within evangelicalism, the authors reveal how the concept of anointing--being chosen by God to speak for him--established a conservative evangelical leadership isolated from secular arts and sciences.
