Seeking Understanding - Leonard Brand

How do Bible-believing scientists think about data differently? Dr. Brand served for many years as chair of the Earth and Biological Sciences Department at Loma Linda University. With a PhD in evolutionary biology from Cornell University, he understands the Darwinian evolutionary view of origins, and his extensive record of peer reviewed scientific publications gives proof of his excellence as a scientist. In addition to other books, Dr. Brand is an author of "Faith, Reason and Earth History," possibly the best book available on faith and science from a biblical perspective. This widely used textbook is available as a free e-book for anyone who wishes to have a copy and can be downloaded in English and Spanish without cost from the Geoscience Research Institute webpage: https://www.grisda.org/faith-reason-and-earth-history In this episode of the "Seeking Understanding" series, Dr. Brand gives the lowdown on how scientists who are Christians look at the same evidence as those committed to a materialistic view of reality and use the same techniques. The difference he advocates is the use of multiple competing hypotheses to explain data, rather than commitment to interpretation within a given worldview. This leads to some very interesting science!
