Gordon Clark was a devout Presbyterian and steadfastly believed what is expressed in the articles of the Westminster Confession of Faith. He so steadfastly believed in the Westminster Confession of Faith that he made those articles the definition for Christianity in his writings. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in French in 1924, and he graduated with a doctorate in philosophy in 1929. He went on to study at Sorbonne in Paris, France.

Gordon Haddon Clark (1902-1985) was an American philosopher and Calvinist theologian, who was chairman of the Philosophy Department at Butler University for 28 years. He wrote many books, such as A Christian View of men and Things (A Treatise Showing that Social Stability Demands a Christian Society), , Thales to Dewey,An Introduction to Christian Philosophy,Religion, Reason and Revelation (Trinity Papers),God and Evil The Problem Solved,God's Hammer: The Bible and Its Critics, etc.

He acknowledges in the Introduction that "theologians... are under a disadvantage. When a scientist or a philosopher argues against religion, he does not need to know much about religion; but when a theologian discusses science, he must know quite a lot. The scientist can get by if he understands no more than that Christians believe God to be an incorporeal spirit; but the theologian is called upon to discuss space, time, motion, energy, electrodynamics, the solar system, quantum theory, relativity, and other assorted items." (Pg. xiv)

He asks, "What is meant by scientific explanation?... What makes the stone fall in the first place instead of remaining in mid-air, and what makes it increase its velocity as it falls? Does the law of gravitation answer these questions?" (Pg. 34-35) More controversially, he argues that "laws are not discovered in the empirical material, or necessarily deduced from that material... if mathematical equations could describe nature, the chance of choosing the correct description is one over infinity, or zero. Therefore, all the laws of physics are false." (Pg. 60)

He concludes the book by observing, "the utility of science can be defended even while asserting its falsity. Science is forever incapable of producing a valid argument against the existence of God, the occurrence of miracle, including a supernatural revelation, and a life beyond the grave... Science is always false, but often useful." (Pg. 113)

Clark's views on science may not always be convincing, but they are an important outgrowth of his overall philosophy, and therefore of considerable interest to students of his.

The average person's view of science differs drastically from how science is perceived by scientists themselves. Modern medicine has found cures for once fatal diseases, modern technology has provided a standard of living (at least in the West)higher than most previous generations would ever dare to imagine. This has led to a popular perception of science as being infallible. Christian apologetists in the 20th century have chosen to defend the faith by suggesting that scientific evidence favours a Christian worldview (see the popular scientific creationist movement). Gordon H. Clark in "The Philosophy of Science and Belief in God" presents an alternative approach. Clark examines the philosophical approach to the scientific method. In doing so he demonstrates clearly that "scientific proof" is an improper basis for one's epistemology.

In this book the late philosopher Gordon H. Clark takes a critical look at the fundamental workings of the scientific method and demonstrates that science is incapable of discovering truth. Science is a collection of useful falsehoods, which we may use to manipulate and control nature. It is useful for giving us technology and for providing working theories of the natural world, but these theories are forever that - theories. They can be proven false, and often are proven false, but no scientific theory can ever be proven true. Therefore the modern fascination with science (which borders almost on idolization) is misguided. Since science cannot discover truth, science has nothing to say about the existence of God, or the truths of Christianity and the Bible. These things are outside the domain of science. This means that there is no fundamental conflict between religion and science, once science is properly understood. Truth does not come from science, but is, rather, a gift revealed to us by God in the pages of the Bible. This book is well worth one's careful study.
