Christianity and Science

Tyson has passed along a couple of links: the first deals with Francis Collins, author of The Language of God, who was appointed by President Obama to be the Director of the National Institute of Health. Since Collins is a Christian, it is alleged by some that he can't possibly be a good choice for this position. You see, Christians simply must be anti-science. They're scary.

The second link is to an interesting disparity between how scientists view themselves politically and how the public views them.

And since it's on topic, James Hannam's book God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science has been published. Go get one.
