OPINION (Charisma) – Dr. Georgia Purdom is a scientist and Christian with a Ph.D. in molecular genetics from The Ohio State University. Well-educated in matters of both faith and science, she believes much of what’s observable in science aligns with the truths described in the Bible. “Christians have a reasoned faith. I think a lot of people characterize Christians as having blind faith,” she recently said on PureFlix.com’s “Answering Atheists.” “I’m a scientist. I love science. God created science. He’s the reason that we can study and work on these things.”
