Science has become somewhat of an idol in our culture. Some have promoted it as the ultimate method for finding truth.
When I was in college, one professor started off his science class by announcing, “Half of what I teach you is not true. The problem is that I don’t know which half.” His point was that though he was teaching what was thought to be true, further scientific research would show that much of it was not true. Sometimes it is just that things are more complex than we first realized. Other times there may be a radical change in how we understand things.
