Here’s an excellent, well-thought out argument for God and Science mixing:
And here’s a quote from the same webpage, an article entitled “The Possible Miracle”. Having just finished producing our fourth miracle, it caught my eye.
“Still, as women age, the various reasons to hold off on having kids often give way to an inexplicable biological urge to have a baby. By the time the average couple tries to have kids, however, they are often surprised to find they are already moving past the peak of their fertile years. As a result, the proportion of fortysomething women who are childless (and unlikely to ever have children) doubled between 1976 and 2000.
Perhaps the most telling statistics are those that reveal a growing gap between what couples say is their ideal family size and the number of kids they actually end up having. While only 2 percent of respondents to a World Values Survey say they don’t want any children, fully 20 percent currently end up having none. And while 3 percent say they only want one child, 16 percent find themselves limited to just one.”
Nathan and I have been “defending” our willingness to have children for 6 years now, and it’s refreshing to read an article that says it might be good to be fruitful and multiply. That said, we’re still praying that God won’t “multiply” us again anytime soon. 🙂
