Q: What is the purpose for the “Scientist Detective” page?

The Scientist Detective pages were designed to develop a very important learning skill. In the process of finding out information about various scientists, your child is learning to develop the ability to discern the scientist ‘s worldview. Essentially, there are two worldviews—a view of the world with God as Creator, or a view of the world as happening by chance, with man as autonomous and accountable to no one. A person’s worldview colors everything he believes, and consequently, a scientist’s conclusions will be affected by his theology. This skill can be carried over to discern the heart of an author, a television program or even a politician.
