“Everywhere I go I see you right there, in the beauty of nature you shine all around,” Nathaniel Bassey wrote in his 2016 song (Wonderful Wonder). The notion is that God can be encountered and comprehended through nature, through his creations. This is a Christian tradition that has been observed for a long time. It is based on Roman 1:19-25. It is not a sin to connect to God through his creations. We just need to be careful to worship the Almighty Creator, and not the creation. Worship of creations or creatures is idolatry (or, just plain stupidity). Science is a source of spirituality.
Michael Faraday, Viktor Schauberger and George Washington Carver are excellent examples of people that explored the depths of God via science. Michael Faraday biographers have noted that “a strong sense of the unity of God and nature pervaded Faraday’s life and work.” Viktor Schauberger wrote, “even in earliest youth my fondest desire was to understand Nature, and thus to come closer to the truth; a truth that I was unable to discover either at school or in church.” George Washington Carver, always referred to his work place as God’s little laboratory. He invented hundreds of uses for the peanut.
Many people believe that spirituality and science are incompatible. This is incorrect. The three people mentioned above were deeply spiritual. While also breaking new ground in science and technology. The most important thing is to make disciples of people from every nation. Then send out disciples of Jesus who are rooted in love and the truth of God’s word. When we sit in church, we cannot comprehend or understand certain aspects of God. You can’t understand God in the marketplace unless you explore it. Perhaps, like Viktor Schauberger, you need to step outside the church and use your spirituality to grow in science, connect with God, and unleash your inventions.
