What breakthrough discoveries came from the scientist Arthur Eddington? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Perhaps you’ll remember that it was Arthur Eddington who measured the bending of starlight near the sun during an eclipse in 1919. His work validated details of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and established Eddington as one of the greatest astronomers of all time.
But Eddington made an even more important breakthrough discovery. This great scientist was also a man of great faith. His whole life was influenced by his reverence for God as Creator. In fact, he wrote that the details of Creation were worthy of being measured, explored and appreciated. In his book Science and the Unseen World, Eddington declared that the world’s meaning was not discoverable from science but must be sought through understanding spiritual realities. Now, I ask you – how many scientists today would come out and say something like that?
