1) In Alvin Plantingas book Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, and Naturalism “the central thesis in the book is that while there is a genuine conflict between religion and science, that a conflict lies, not between theistic religion and science but between the religion of naturalism and science” (Craig, W. L. n.d.). Plantinga states that there is an allusion of conflict but there are scientific facts and religious beliefs that actual complement each other or prove one anothers existence.
Plantinas theory is that both religious and science can co-exist. He talks about how there are conflicting facts for science that some believe disproves religion. He thinks that the conflicts are over exaggerated or really dont apply in some cases.
The section on divine action and in that section Plantinga has no problem showing classical physics or quantum physics suggest in any way that god cannot intervene miraculously in the series of secondary cause. So in lame mans terms he is saying that science cannot disprove religion. There is no science that can show that there is no way that god cannot intervene if he wanted (Craig, W. L. n.d).
One of Plantinas points in this book to atheist is that just because science can be the proof to the creation of life that doesnt mean that god did not have his hand in the creation guiding that creation. Atheists believe that the science is what created us. And the creation of man and life was guided by god being the belief of Christians.
