Science and faith, science and religion were fully compatible in the thoughts of the famous American evangelist (1918-2018).
Billy Graham was probably the most influential and impactful evangelical Christian of the 20th century. His conversion story 84 years ago vividly shows a conventional and wondrous event at the same time. He possessed a pragmatic mindset in terms of science and religion:
"I don’t think that there’s any conflict at all between science today and the scriptures. I think that we have misinterpreted the Scriptures many times and we’ve tried to make the Scriptures say things they weren’t meant to say, I think that we have made a mistake by thinking the Bible is a scientific book. The Bible is not a book of science. The Bible is a book of Redemption, and of course I accept the Creation story. I believe that God did create the universe. I believe that God created man, and whether it came by an evolutionary process and at a certain point He took this person or being and made him a living soul or not, does not change the fact that God did create man. … whichever way God did it makes no difference as to what man is and man’s relationship to God.”
