Scientists Pg 3
SCIENTISTS HAVE ALWAYS SOUGHT KNOWLEDGE
FROM THEIR OBSERVATION OF STUDY
Do we really need proof that God exists.
If so, for some people, "Oh ye, of little faith",
then science is the proof. Yes, science proves the existence of God.
Science has always pointed to God and science proves the existence of God. Scientists through the ages have wisely sought out knowledge from painstakingly systematized observation and study. And where does all this knowledge come from? It comes from God. "Because the Lord giveth wisdom and out of his mouth cometh prudence and knowledge." PRV: 2:6
Many Scientific discoveries have been made from Christian scientists to benefit man and society.
Enoch Fitch Burr: 1818-1907
Enoch Fitch Burr (1818–1907): Astronomer and Congregational Church pastor who lectured extensively on the relationship between science and religion. He also wrote Ecce Coelum: or Parish Astronomy in 1867. He once stated that "an undevout astronomer is mad".
Michael Faraday FRS (22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was a British scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.
Known as “one of the most influential scientists in history. Historians of science refer to him as the best experimentalist in the history of science.” Discovered Benzene, invented early form of Bunsen Burner.
John Hall Gladstone
John Hall Gladstone FRS (7 March 1827 – 6 October 1902) was a British chemist. He served as President of the Physical Societybetween 1874 and 1876 and during 1877–1879 was President of the Chemical Society. Apart from chemistry, where one of his most notable publications was on bromination of rubber, he undertook pioneering work in optics and spectroscopy.
Although Gladstone had thus formally adopted the pursuit of science as his career, he continued throughout his life to take an active part in religious work. In Clapham his parents were members of the Rev. James Hill's Congregational Church, and here he taught in the Sunday School, beside conducting services in a Mission Room at White Square. Later on he held a Bible Class for young men on Sunday afternoons, and until the end of his life he was intimately connected with the work of the Young Men's Christian Associationfounded by George Williams. For many years he was the chief organiser of the Sunday afternoon devotional meeting held annually at the meeting of the British Association.

Lord Kelvin (1824–1907): At the University of Glasgow he did important work in the mathematical analysis of electricity and formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics. He gave a famous address to the Christian Evidence Society. In science he won the Copley Medal and the Royal Medal.
George Stokes: 1819-1903
Sir George Gabriel Stokes
(13 August 1819 – 1 February 1903): Sir George Gabriel Stokes was a minister's son. He wrote a book on Natural Theology. He was also one of the Presidents of the Royal Society and made contributions to Fluid dynamics.
