But guess what, when you point at anything and say “that’s evidence”, then you’re never going to be wrong.

I think this book would be more beneficial for people who see science and religion as the opposite sides of a spectrum, no matter which side they favour.Morris’s interest in these images was piqued by Susan Sontag, herself the author of two books on photography. There’s a reason this book contains little or no discussion of commercial photography, fashion photography, photography as art, soon-to-be-regretted yearbook photos or iPhone snapshots. It is, itself, a kind of staged re-creation: of the battle between the Errol Morris who believes in irrefutable conclusions (and in the ethics and efficacy of his own particular means of arriving at them), and the Errol Morris who possesses a deeply personal understanding that the truth very often evades us.

When 'science' believing atheists express a lack of belief what they always miss is that they are expressing a belief. As it happens, she never claimed that Fenton “moved the cannonballs to telegraph the horrors of war. With the risk of sounding nit-picky, I don't think faith and religion are interchangeable words, and although I didn't necessarily get the impression that the author thinks that I would have appreciated less ambiguity with the use of these two.But this logic was the very thing that compelled me into understanding what a relationship with God was like and why I eventually became a follower of Christ. A survey conducted by BlaBlaCar, a popular ridesharing service, found that 88% of its members reported a high level of trust in fellow users—higher than that reported for colleagues or neighbours.

Which observable facts and experiences am I basing my reasoning on, and are there other facts to consider?

A stronger (and more appropriately humble) approach is to start with a single axiom - "There is a creator God, and the Bible is His word". I would’ve liked this book to be a form of “God created the big bang“ but instead it’s about a math, physics, and astronomy professor who later converted to Christianity and wanted to I guess convert others to join him. In my own experience of facilitating and taking part in such processes of ‘deeper questioning’, simply the practice of asking such questions to get clear about the different perspectives and the assumptions that inform us can help to open up a gateway towards the resolution of what can initially be perceived as a irreconcilable conflict. With that said, I think that Christians can definitely learn from and appreciate the book— particularly the idea that science and faith are not mutually exclusive. When you ask these questions in the context of Abu Ghraib, both their stakes and their complexity become immediately apparent.
