To suggest that modern science had a Christian beginning would seem to most folks as absurd. This is true for several reasons. First we are propagandized daily with the “fact” that science and religion have nothing in common, but mix like oil and water. Second, the educational system in America leaves many of its victims totally incapable of critical thinking, thanks to progressive education icon John Dewey. Third, the complete trashing of religion in general, and Christianity in particular, has become an enormous goal of the secular culture, with much success currently.
And yet, it was well-known that in the groundbreaking science fellowship—London’s Royal Society—sat an unusual number of Puritans and other deeply religious persons. Further, some of the greatest scientific minds of early modern science’s age were profound Believers. And now we have a source explaining some of this apparent contradiction. A recent book suggests modern science was a direct result of a Christian worldview. Further, and more remarkably—that early scientist’s desire to regain the Adamic knowledge from the Garden was their chief aim. This is the subject of this essay.
