Proponents of naturalism, atheism and scientism persist in their claim that 'science has buried theism'. In this session, we commence a series in which we discredit this idea. We show that science would need to provide explanations for at least three matters before it could hope to 'bury theism'. It would need to (1) explain why physical and material things exist, (2) explain why these things have certain properties, especially the property of change and motion, and (3) explain why these physical things change or move in the way that they do. Since the laws of nature are merely 'descriptive' and not 'prescriptive', they can offer no explanation of these issues. Consider one example: the strong nuclear force describes that certain kinds of quarks exchange gluons, and that when this occurs, the quarks stay close together to form protons or neutrons. But this description tells us nothing about why gluons are exchanged between quarks, or why quarks should stay close together when this occurs. Similar comments can be made in relation to each of the fundamental forces. As such, science is utterly impotent to bury theism. This discussion is based on the Twenty-Third Flash of the Risale-i Nur. Watch our video for more, and stay tuned for our next segment.
