"Science" of Sexual Orientation?
Crosswalk, Michael S. Craven Blog, 3.19.2006
(liberals, secularists, etc.) are only pressing a
liberal political agenda when in fact this is simply how many Americans
attempt to explain reality. They reject the supernatural as a plausible
explanation and therefore can only limit life's answers to the scope of
scientific materialism. Former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich
articulated this perspective quite clearly in the New Prospect,
in which he wrote,
"The great conflict of the 21st century may be between the West and
terrorism but terrorism is a tactic and not a belief. The underlying
battle will be between modern civilization and anti-modernist
fanatics; between those who believe in the primacy of the individual
and those who believe that beings owe blind allegiance to a higher
authority; between those who give priority to life in this world and
those who believe that human life is no more than preparation for an
existence beyond life; between those who believe that truth is
revealed solely through scripture and religious dogma, and those who
rely primarily on science, reason, and logic."
WO purpose is to bridge this conflict, to find common ground, the use of
both approaches for reasoned and logical as well as moral and spiritual
focus on issues to achieve the common good.

serves as the basis of Western science comes directly from the Christian
life and worldview. It was after all Sir Francis Bacon, (1561-1626) known as
the "father of inductive reasoning," who led the dramatic shift away from
Aristotelian deduction that ruled the intellectual world for nearly 1500
years. This shift in the scientific approach is regarded as a major
milestone in Western scientific thought and this shift was the direct result
of Bacon's belief in a rational God who was distinct and separate from
creation. As such he believed that rational beings made in the image of God
could understand nature because it too was created in a rational, orderly
manner. Suffice it to say that Christianity and legitimate science are not
