What is the purpose for the Scientist Detective page?
TOP The Scientist Detective pages were designed to develop a very important learning skill. In the process of finding out information about various scientists, your child is learning to develop the ability to discern the scientist s worldview. Essentially, there are two worldviews–a view of the world with God as Creator, or a view of the world as happening by chance, with man as autonomous and accountable to no one. A person s world view colors everything he believes, and consequently , a scientist s conclusions will be affected by his theology. This skill can be carried over to discern the heart of an author, a television program or even a politician.
