A religious scientist drawing parallels between Genesis and Science, they may be speaking a different language, but they are both a journey into reality.

Background Information

I am from the North East of England from a town called Grimsby where I spent my whole childhood until my time at university. There was only a small Jewish community at this time and unfortunately this has dwindled to almost nothing in the last few years. But I look back very fondly at my home town and the beautiful small synagogue I used to attend.

I am currently a research scientist working in the Biotech sector. My work primarily involves engineering and artificially evolving proteins to improve their properties for study and drug discovery. I feel very fortunate to be working in science as I have the opportunity to investigate the workings of biology on a molecular level and play the most interesting game of all; tinkering with nature. I have always been religious on some level but I have grown to be more observant of Jewish traditions later in life while I undertook my degree in science. This learning in both science and religion initially created conflicts within my mind, how could they both be true and what of the perceived contradictions between religion and science. However I soon realised that once one scratches the surface of these two worlds of thought, these initial contradictions dissolve and I realised both science and religion are not only compatible but on the same page, both enlightening the other. A famous proverb in Judaism is that one can study the Torah (Old Testament) and understand the world, or one can study the world and understand the Torah. After some time I put my thoughts down onto paper and eventually worked these thoughts into a book. I have published a book on the parallels between science and Genesis called "The First Six Days".

I hope that my work can help religious individuals from the Abrahamic faiths to understand and embrace science. Science is such a vibrant, interesting field of study and is one of humanities’ greatest tools to better our lives and understand our world. Science and religion may be speaking a different language, but they are both a journey into reality on different levels.
