In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.
  • Optional: Browse the Internet and see what you find to share.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

Is science a religion?

If you search for an answer on the Internet, you find people saying "yes" and others saying "no." But what do the youth think?

Lead a discussion. You might also ask:

  • What is the difference between proof and belief?
  • Can someone trust in their faith and at the same time trust in the scientific method?
  • Can someone belong to two religions?
  • Can scientific method be used to prove anything at all about a religion? Why or why not?
