Science and the Supernatural

on September 1, 1996

Originally published in Creation 18(4):6, September 1996

‘It is often said that science must avoid any conclusions which smack of the supernatural. But this seems to me to be both bad logic and bad science. Science is not a game in which arbitrary rules are used to decide what explanations are to be permitted. Rather, it is an effort to make true statements about physical reality.’

Michael J. Behe, associate professor, department of biological sciences, Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, Molecular Machines: Experimental Support for the Design Inference—a paper presented in the summer of 1994 at the meeting of the C.S. Lewis Society, Cambridge University, England.
