Popular Culture in America contains a “metanarrative” that places science and faith in a hostile juxtaposition to each other. This story can be found in pulpits, on National Public Radio, or on less heady fare like The Simpsons, South Park, and Family Guy.
The metanarrative goes like this: Science and religion are mortal enemies and always have been. Every scientific advance has been opposed by the church; scientists have been relentlessly persecuted, tortured and even executed for their discoveries. The church has been relentlessly superstitious and only reluctantly conceded to science when the evidence became overwhelming.
Christian students in our science classes thus fear that the science they are studying has a dark cloud hanging over it. Addressing this negative and false baggage the students bring into the classroom is an important part of helping them integrate the science they are studying into their Christian worldview.
