However, if Alvin Plantinga is right in the argument he makes in his book Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, and Naturalism (Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2011), they are going beyond their scientific evidence on this point.
And here’s an article on yet another really important issue that goes to the core of what human nature is:
And now for some planetary news, both foreign and domestic:
And now, after those science links, I offer a statement of his faith from Dr. Ian Hutchinson, Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT):
I became a Christian, as an undergraduate at Cambridge University, because of the person of Jesus. He was, to me, an exceedingly attractive figure for what he taught and what his life and death was said to represent. But it was only then that I heard clearly and came to accept that the evidence for his Resurrection is strong, and gives good reason to believe it is true. I also heard clearly the call to repentance and discipleship, and I accepted it. My subsequent decades of experience in the Christian faith have confirmed to me the reality of God’s presence, and my intellectual exploration has strengthened my conviction that the Gospel is supported by compelling evidence and logical arguments.
