Science vs. Theology

A couple weeks ago I was completing my Philosophy study guide and came across this story by Robert Jastrow. I will not type the whole story but in short he was talking about how the Big Band and Creation point to the same thing- a beginning of the universe. His description is incredible and awe inspiring. He ends with this quote I copied from God and Science website-

Robert Jastrow (self-proclaimed agnostic): "For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story [of the big-bang] ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."

As if to say...

We told you so.

Lol! I love it when the so-called experts and smart people have such huge revelations.

Yeah, but who doesn't like to see his beliefs confirmed?
I take that very same pleasure in seeing a smart person grow out of faith through education and reflection.
