Science and the CES Letter

  • The next section of the CES Letter is about science. It claims that science contradicts Mormon revelation and that only fools would believe in Mormonism over science. This section fails to take into account that the basic assumption of both science and Mormon doctrine is that the quest for truth is ongoing. The scientific method is based on the idea that science doesn’t know everything yet. As a principle, revelation is only necessary because individuals, leaders, and the Mormon Church at large still seek for answers to their questions.
