Render Unto Caesar

Our e-pal Bill Keezer has sent along an essay by Ian Hutchinson, a professor of nuclear science and engineering. Dr. Hutchinson is also a Christian, and his article is a riposte to people like Lawrence Krauss and Richard Dawkins, who flatter themselves that the certainty of their atheism is grounded in truth, rather than their own scientistic faith. (I used to share this belief myself until quite recently, so I know how convincing it can be.)

Dr. Hutchinson presents three hypotheses about the Resurrection. Hypothesis #2 is a clear and concise critique of scientism, one of the best I’ve read.

The essay is not long. Read it here.

    We have scientistic materialism to blame for noxious TV programmes such as “Ghost Hunters”, “Finding Bigfoot”, and their ilk. A ghost, if any such thing really exists, is obviously a supernatural phenomenon, and could hardly be tracked and coaxed out as one would a skittish nocturnal animal. 90% of Sasquatch “sightings” come from jumpy people confused by black bears, but if we give any credence at all to the eyewitnesses of a distinctly bipedal hairy beast with glowing red eyes and a foul odor, that clearly bespeaks some sort of demon or pooka, not a breeding population of large North American primates. Believe such things or disbelieve them as you like, but real or imagined, they do not come when beckoned, even by television producers.
