As the assault against God and Christianity continues in the liberal secular halls of media and the minds of Obama government watchdogs there is one former astronaut who is definitely on God’s side. According to The Blaze, Dr. Leslie Wickman a respected scientist and former astronaut has no problem accepting “God as the source of all … wonder” on the Earth and in the skies above.
This comes on the heels of another former astronaut John Glenn, who recently suggested that God should perhaps take a backseat to evolution when it comes to teaching students about the world’s creation.
The marginalization of God is an issue which has been front and center in public schools for decades and more recently in myriad efforts launched by the Obama administration. So when Wickman made her statement regarding God being the “source of all wonder” Christianity also benefited as well.
Over the past five years parents have had to re-double their effort in staving off teachers and school administrators that have rejected the reading of the Bible by students after school. Many schools have actually abandoned even considering it as an educational tool with historical relevance in classroom, in favor of teaching the Muslim Koran.
This has had serious repercussions for Christian students who have been suspended from class and even from many schools because of the exercise of their right to read their Bible on their own free time. Many parents have had to determine whether to fight for their child or to give in to school officials when their child is sent home for exercising their U.S. Constitutional rights.
In many ways it is indeed a breath of fresh air to see a person like Wickman, who is a Christian, not back away from her beliefs. She believes that there is room for both God’s creation beliefs and for science as well. In her book God of the Big Bang: How Modern Science Affirms the Creator, she makes that very point.
The department head of engineering and computer science at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California, stressed, “Because I believe that God is who he claims to be as the creator of everything, then it doesn’t seem logical to me that the truth about God and who he is could contradict the truth about his creation — and so, for me, there’s this kind of fallacy in logic that if you study what God’s created it’s somehow going to contradict who he is,” reported The Blaze.
For those who are believers in Creationism there is certainly room for Wickman’s sort of “Intelligent Design” concept to be quite compelling. She relies on the idea that God, whose abilities are quite infinite, could conceivably utilize varied processes in his method for developing creation. One school of thought could legitimately coexist with the other.
As Christians all over America enjoy the summer stars in the sky with their children, family and friends take it from one astronaut who marveled from space at all of God’s creation, that God is still the “source of all wonder.”
