ALTA LOMA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 11, 2020
Michael Rios is a retired public high school science teacher who over the course of a thirty-five-year career served as mentor teacher, science department chairperson, a participant in the PBS Evolution Project, and chair of California’s Curriculum Framework and Criteria Committee, which produced one of the first official documents representing the new direction of standards-based education in the nation. He has published his new book “Science and Faith: It’s Not a Debate”: a thoughtful drawn from his background as a science educator who was raised Roman Catholic and became a “reborn” Christian as a college student.
Why have so many books and discussions on science and faith framed their arguments as science versus faith? By what authority was it decided that one side is completely right and the other wrong? “In Science and Faith: It’s Not a Debate”, Michael Rios addresses the need to understand what’s happening on each side, the fears, history, methodology, compatibility, and limitations. Without a true understanding of the nature of both sides, diatribes and debates are pointless! “Science and Faith: It’s Not a Debate” explores the development of scientific thought and examines the biblical interpretations put forth by Christians to provide the readers with an appropriate context of each side.
The traditional “main event” whenever science and faith are discussed, evolution and creation, are described with respect to accepted scientific theory and hermeneutics, the study of the general principles of biblical interpretation. How can anyone assume to make an informed decision without understanding the scientific and biblical explanations of our origins and how each discipline works? Is reconciliation possible? If both sides are devoted to knowing the truth, there is hope for a convergence of knowledge and understanding. “Science and Faith: It’s Not a Debate” explains how society has been influenced by philosophical intolerance and misinformation and the dangerous effect it can have on our future generations.
Published by Page Publishing, Michael Rios’s engrossing book is a thought-provoking discussion of the science-faith dichotomy that acknowledges the truths inherent in each perspective.
