This series is meant to be a critique of the rampant science denial in American Christianity and new age spiritualities. The ever polarizing war between religion and science is, in my opinion, one of the biggest threats to the future of the planet. For the purposes of this series, I wish to define God— not as a jealous warlord—but as a scientist, one who created the immensely complex biological sphere we as humans inhabit. For any believer, I mean this not as an attack but as something to contemplate. Can we not consider god ‘parting the waters’ and the collapse of interstellar gas that eventually formed our solar system in equal respects? Can we not see the Creation of Eve mirrored in the biological process of mitosis? Is it the duty of the prophet to inform you that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell or is it the duty of the scientist? These are all questions that informed this body of work. The goal of this series is to explore esoteric biblical concepts, Biblical academia and secular scientific theory through renaissance- inspired imagery.
