1Science test God?
CV : Francois Yoffe, Etienne Klein, Salvatore, May 2022. According to François Effie, we must first ask ourselves which deity we are talking about. More broadly, we must question the principles underlying modern science and its philosophical and theological assumptions. Without succumbing to the temptation to conform, faith and science can dialogue and give us access to a truth that neither advocates scientific materialism nor theistic irrationality. If science can purify religion of superstition, on the contrary, religion can help science cleanse itself of false absolutes. Look for it in libraries.
