Ethan Bell Posted about 2 years ago can science be linked with god? Though I myself am agnostic, a great example of a theist scientist is Eisenstein. A great counterexample is Stephen Hawking. I know this wont help much at all, because I was in your exact position, but what I did was gave up. I "believe" in science, but if someone can give me some pretty dang good proof that any religion is correct, I will follow that religion. You may want to look into physical and metaphysical cosmology; there are many theories about what was "before" the big bang, but in most religions, the earth was just made. This, of course, could easily be adapted to suit the facts we already know. Some people think that the universe cycles, some think that 12th dimensional membranes collide and make a universe, still there are many other theories.
