Has science disproved God?

The bethinking booklets seek to address some of the 'big questions' about life in an accessible but convincing manner. It is often supposed that Christianity and science are inevitably opposed to each other, but this ignores the fact that many leading scientists today are Christians.

This page provides further resources for you to continue to think through the question of whether science really undermines belief in God. These resources look at questions such as:

  • Does science do away with the need for God as Creator of the universe?
  • Does the theory of evolution contradict the Biblical account in the book of Genesis?
  • Can science provide answers to every question we can ask? Or does science have limits?

Does Evolution Disprove God?

No conflict
