The title of this blog is by design, mostly focused on the vivid relationships that exist between science, learning and God.
SCIENCE: The word science comes from the Latin "scientia," which means knowledge. But knowing what? Plus, even the knowledge we purport to know is almost always incomplete. Presently, it's obvious that we "see through a glass darkly..." But then! Furthermore, if science answers questions, what is the ultimate question?
LEARNING: After learning how to send a text message, where the bathroom is and how to use our gps to locate the nearest Starbucks... what else do we need? Does the entire of system of learning ultimately point out the ongoing battle between secularism and God stuff?
GOD: Is God simply a concept? A cliche? Maybe even Creator? If science is "knowing," does "knowing God" come under the realm of science? Or is it the other way around?
As college students (learners) in a required course (science) in a Christian college (God), does any of this make sense? Have we reduced life to cell phones and Scantrons? Can we find real meaning in life without "knowing" God? Can we find life WITH Him?
Is your tuition money paying for only knowledge? Or direction? But maybe decision is that which leads to direction?
Anyway, those musings may be rhetorical, maybe not.
