Science certainly does not support things like resurrection of Lazarus or Christ occurring NATURALLY. The Church, however, teaches that Christ did wonders, i.e. SUPERNATURAL deeds, and His own resurrection was the biggest of these SUPERNATURAL wonders.jckstraw72 said:why do you classify interpretations of Genesis as scientific dissertations rather than God-inspired interpretations? are there other Patristic subjects you would do the same for? i cant imagine science supports things like the resurrection of Lazarus or Christ -- should we bend to science there too?While the spiritual advice of the Church Fathers for the sake of our salvation is everlasting, their "scientific" dissertations are well and truly out of date.
Biological evolution, on the other hand, is a purely natural phenomenon about which the Fathers simply did not know. We do. And the Church does not mind us finding out new things, previously unknown even to inspired Fathers (like the heliocentric system, or biological evolution, or genetics, or quantum mechanics, etc.).
