“Six Ways Christianity Supported the Growth of Science” by Saints and Sceptics

1) The pioneers of the scientific method had to wait some time before they could demonstrate the practical benefits of their studies.

Is it: Sense of time and existence in it--the unshakable awareness that we are mortal? That we systematically study and observe nature and all other species. (Humans are learning oriented--process over …
