In the WindowView
Science and Scripture in Harmony
A Window Is
A Place For Perspectives
This window follows lines of sight
What and Why:
We commonly hear single-sighted perspectives.
The skeptic and atheist will say there is no God.
The naturalist will say evolution explains all.
The die-hard creationist will say science is not to be trusted.
What happens when multiple perspectives are considered together?
What happens when assumptions are removed?
From several window perspectives, when combined objectively, one may see scientific and biblical information are in fact not in conflict.
This is a synthesis that takes some assessing. Look, ask:
What do the data really tell us?
What is the evidence that forms the bigger picture?
The window begs a look.
The 'WindowView' presents an opportunity to consider several key scenarios in areas identified as Change, Science, and Harmony. An added area for Convergence considers the merging of these scenarios—and thus provides a summary. An added area provides a timeline because human events leading to the future travel along Time.
A word of caution: Set aside preconceived notions. Words and themes may at first be familiar and personal bias may tempt a quick exit. Appreciating the entire window and surprises within only comes with looking at more than one perspective.
Both scientific evidence for global changes today lead to a merging with a chronology of events described in Scripture. Perhaps unlikely at first, the continued changes on earth will lead to a need for a global response and singular strong leadership. This scenario is outlined in the Overview and Thesis page in the Change area.
The terms evolution and creation are often considered polar opposites. Scientific data however bring us to recent assessments that require deeper reflection in this window. The terms are not the issue. Opinions are not in the data. The evidence within the Science scenario indicate scientific data have something marvelous to reveal about life's origin. The Overview and Thesis page provide a plain language consideration of what the scientific data are really saying.
The world is closing in on the Middle East. Understanding the future includes the people, the land, and biblical information that concerns this corner of the globe. Israel and her people are considered here in a light projected to both Jew and Gentile. The harmony here relates to a linkage between the Hebrew and Greek texts. The information, or handled as biblical data, are in fact evidence for what comes to all of us on the approaching horizon of time.
A merging of data, news, themes, and what impacts our lives all comes to a point of convergence. This is the focal point that defines humanity's future. Beyond our corporate fate, there is throughout the WindowView an opportunity to accept a promise concerning our individual and personal future. The entire window concerns our making a step up to life. An entire window brings us to consider a personal choice.

Consider …. today, humanity has the necessary data to:
- Recognize global changes, including climate, social, economic, and other human-driven issues confound the prospect for a sustainable future on planet Earth—leading to reflection on the value of life and our survival
- Understand that data for life's chemical and biological origin scenarios do not fit standard explanations—with the direct inference: scientific information reveals we are expressly not here by accident or chance
- See a confluence of scientific data and evidence in the Hebrew and Greek biblical texts flow in harmony to look to the future with a promise and a purpose for the reality we share today
- Reflect on the role for a chosen people and how they are at the hub of timeline events leading to the future
- Know that past and current events converge on a previously documented chronology of future events that testify our being is by purpose and design
Life comes with a choice for the future.
A choice is the reason for this WindowView!
The Window is here for you!
Explore the window, visit each brief video Introduction accompanied by an Overview, a Thesis page, and then supporting Articles. Change, Science, and Harmony move us along a Timeline where all perspectives Converge to summarize the entire view and our future … the evidence is before us … many sources together point the way.
Reflections in the Window
"We had sky up there, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss whether they was made or just happened." - Mark Twain
"Religion points to that area of human experience where in one way or another man comes upon mystery as a summons to pilgrimage." - Frederick Bucchner
The WindowView opens to where science meets faith … where scientific and theistic perspectives converge to define life's origin, purpose, and our future!
- What's New
- Navigation Helps
- Site History
- Global Visitors
Beginning August 2013 the format of WindowView web pages was given a complete update. What you see is the result of hundreds of hours of webmaster work with new color, page styles, menu updates, and new navigation aids.
The update process now continues in completion and revision of various pages throughout the site. This work will incorporate added source material that supports the scenarios, thesis concepts, and overall premise as described in the Convergence area. This work will continue into the year ahead and as events warrant further additions!
There is new content to add, new books to recommend, and new evidence to fill in the larger WindowView. For 2013, 2014, and beyond, content and refinements will be added.
Simply, the WindowView has undergone and will continue to be in the process of renewal … in the mean time we hope that your mind is refreshed, challenged, and renewed by what you see here. If not for now … for eternity and as a blessing to you.

WindowView.org was registered and web pages were first posted to the Internet in 1997. For about 10 years we posted a listing of site improvements. While this listing is no longer here, the web pages have experienced several major updates in format and content. Older pages that are of value can be found in our Archive Area (see our page map). However, archived pages may contain outdated thematic content. For example, in earlier phases the WindowView emphasized the concept of 'new paradigm.' This emphasis is still of some value, but now has been replaced by a perspective now focused on the theme of "Science and Scripture in Harmony."
There are many ways to track visitation to a web site. Site statistics are of value for many reasons. Some statistical data are not always as complete as my be hoped. Our Web Master uses StatCounter.com and AWStats to track visitation rates. Also, the following graphic representation is a helpful but only partial indicator of site visits, yet this is a most impressive graphic revealing the geographical distribution for our visitors at WindowView.
