Yes, of course, they are not mutually exclusive! There was an article in the paper TODAY about scientists saying that the Shroud of Turin is real because the only thing that could've left that image would be a blast of UV radiation ... and since that kind of technology didn't exist in the middle ages when it was supposedly faked, it must've been made when Jesus was resurrected!
Yeah! Just because you can't prove there is a god dose not mean you can't have faith in one. Now he really would find it hard to believe in an organized religion because of all the stories and prophesies. I am a major beloved in science. But I also believe that there had to be a beginning to every thing. I feel like science is just the factual study of what god created.
ditto on bigdhowdy, and The Dazzle239. My mom's an Intensive Care Unit Nurse and believes in Western Medicine. She also religiously goes to church every Sunday and prays. I also believe in Science and Nature, yet strongly believe in higher spirits. You'd be surprised! Lots & lots definitely believe in both! They are both strong and powerful studies that will benefit you in many experiences in your life. Take Care!
I think they could, but their view on God would be different then a non-science believer. It would be very hard for them to accept things as they are proved and accept the biblical god point over all as well.
Yes, why not? There have been hundreds of notable Muslim scientists that have made a great contribution to civilization and society. In fact, without the inventions and innovations of the Muslim world during the golden ages and dark ages we would not have any of the modern day mathematics, computers, literature, philosophy, some sciences, and most of the technology we are probably using every day.
A minority of scientists (perhaps 10%) believe in God, but it's not rare. My PhD advisor believed in God. He is a terrific scientist. He used to say he is interested in how God created the universe, and that's what science does.
The definition of Science is knowledge via study. One cannot truly "know God" like one can "truly know" 1+1=2, but that doesn't mean he or she can't study God or study other parts of the natural world and still believe in God.

Yes, many scientists have great faith in God. That goes far beyond "believing". Faith is an active belief, a putting into action, speech, thoughts, and attitudes that belief that impacts every part of their lives! (I have a relative that was a physicist for the U.S. agency that launched men into space, and his faith has often put mine to shame.) And the claim of that faith (belief) indicates a stronger mind capable of imagining and seeing far beyond this puny little world. Of knowing reality, not just a fleeting, temporary material world.
