Easter 2015 Resurrection and science, Can Christians Believe in both?, Was the resurrection of Jesus Christ an anti-scientific event?, American Association for the Advancement of Science

 

From the Christian Post April 3, 2015.

“Can Christians Believe in Science and the Resurrection?”

“Was the resurrection of Jesus Christ an anti-scientific event? This question was discussed at a March 13 conference on science and religion hosted by The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion.

At the end of a panel on “Science Engagement in Congregations,” an audience member who identified himself as a rabbi said “the elephant in the room has not been discussed,” which he identified as, “that the fundamental basis of Christianity is a violation of nature.”

He began his remarks by recalling another event he attended at a Presbyterian church. An audience member at that event asked one of the panelists, a Presbyterian, about the resurrection. “Do you really believe that?” he asked. The panelist replied, “no, we understand [the resurrection] metaphorically,” the rabbi recalled him saying.

Another panelist then turned to the pastor of the congregation and said, “did you hear that? Your congregant just said he doesn’t believe literally in the resurrection of Jesus.” To which the minister replied, “where do you think he learned it from?”

The resurrection, the rabbi continued, is “an anti-scientific event [in which] the laws of nature get suspended. So, it shouldn’t surprise that, historically, there’s a tension between science and religion in the Christian community.””
