How we fill students’ hearts and minds will determine the type of people they will become. At Apologia, we do not take that responsibility lightly. That is why we approach science courses with a Biblical worldview.
Exclude God from the definition of science and, in one fell definitional swoop,
you exclude the greatest natural philosophers of the so-called scientific revolution—
Kepler, Copernicus, Galileo, Boyle, and Newton (to name just a few).
Clark 2014: 42
It isn’t just scientists from the past, who thought God should be included in scientific discussions.
I had to admit that the science I loved so much was powerless to answer questions such as “What is the meaning of life?” “Why am I here?” “Why does mathematics work, anyway?” “If the universe had a beginning, who created it?” “Why are the physical constants in the universe so finely tuned to allow the possibility of complex life forms?”
Dr. Francis Collins, M.D. Ph.D. Director of the Human Genome Project
Right from the start, the tone in our science courses lets students know that they are going to study science as a tool to help them understand their unique place in all of the universe. At Apologia, we not only see the beautiful truth in Romans 1:20 but we design our curriculum to be faithful to this truth.
Forever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky.
Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–
his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
