Critical Reflection Page #5 When reading Nystroms one sentence I disagreed with said, “Huxley argued that Christianity should be abandoned because of uncertainty about the existence of God and the teachings of Jesus.” (N322) I disagree with this. Since God is all knowing and all powerful you need to have faith in God because his power is incomprehensible for any human mind. Haekel, a scientist at the beginning of the 20 th century said “that scientists would soon solve all of nature’s mysteries and even learn how to create life itself.” (N323) I found this sentence to be ridiculous because there are so many mysteries in the scientific world that most probably won’t even be solved in the next couple centuries. I don’t think scientists will ever be able to prove the creation of the universe. In science the law of conservation of energy states that “matter cannot be created nor destroyed.” 1 (COE) If this is true then there is no scientific explanation for how the universe appeared. We must rely on faith alone to answer this question. In the 19 th century, many people went against the church and followed scientific belief. Rahner, an orthodox thinker
