Is Science Enough? | Troy Van Voorhis

The same facts can lead to different stories. You see this daily in your news feed — major events produce dozens of headlines, and each article has its own interpretation of the facts. This is how we make sense of the world: when we get information, we want to interpret it. But, with so many choices, is there a right interpretation?

He discusses how interpretations may not always be in conflict with each other, and how his Christian faith informs his approach to certainty.
