In the WindowView
Science and Scripture in Harmony
A Window ...
A Place For Perspectives
This window looks forward to the future!
◊ ARE WE looking at the last days of human survival on planet Earth?
◊ TODAY WE HAVE the evidence revealing the future.
◊ MULTIPLE sources, from varied perspectives, are illuminated within the window's framework.
◊ SEE, HEAR, discern and test ... hold fast what is true.
In An Era of Rapid Change:
These are alarming times ... the earth is wearing thin and humans have lost sight of stewardship for truth, civility, planet, life, and the God given reason for our existence.
Nations provoke each other ... saber rattling continues while the hoards struggle, are persecuted, people beheaded by extremists, tyrants starve their nations, and conflicts threaten at all corners of the planet.
Danger is at our door ... what good will become of ISIS, North Korea and Iran's nuclear bombs, nations continually living on debt, and humanity's indifference to humanity, nature, and future generations. Really, that is where we find ourselves today!
Do you wonder about such things?
Are you not concerned?
Might there be a rational conclusion about life today and why we are seeing a planet coming unglued?
Humanity is now at maximum burn rate for non-renewable resources, oil flows like water, water turns to drought, climate shifts and storms intensify, nations turn every field to production without conserving soil and water for the next generation, and we are all at increasing risk of disease, war, and famine.
We, many of us, still live like there is always a tomorrow.
Changes accelerating around the globe spur melting of polar and terrestrial ice masses, accelerating rising sea levels, and soon encroach on us to illustrate how a shrinking planet will push all humanity to new realities concerning survival and dependence on the stewardship we have totally lost sight of in the first place.
However, by looking at the world as only a material place where we exist only as material beings misses a critical perspective.
The WindowView is a soft apologetic, that is, the information here is a 'gentle' defense of faith and reason based on science and Scripture. Ease into the window's vantage points on change, science, and the harmony and all unique perspectives will merge.
To those who have never read the Bible, there is news and information with specificity for today.
To those who have not looked closely at what scientific information really shows, there is an awakening yet to be discovered in the awesome complexity and the known evidence for origins to life on earth.
We blindside ourselves by assumptions and opinions others keep pushing ... but what if you look closer at the information for what it reveals?
What will you see where the evidence leads us?
How? Simply scan the main menu above and visit the various sections of the window.
What and Why:
We commonly hear ...
• skeptics and atheists say there is no God
• naturalists say evolution explains all
• creationists say science is not to be trusted
But what happens when various, multiple, informational perspectives are considered together?
What happens when assumptions are removed?
What is most truthful about our existence and future?
Several window perspectives, combined objectively, reveal scientific and biblical information exposes our future.
Look and consider:
What do the data really tell us?
Where does the evidence lead?
What evidence converges to form the bigger picture?
The window invites you to take a look for yourself!
The 'WindowView' presents an opportunity to consider several key scenarios in areas identified as Change, Science, and Harmony. An added area provides a timeline because human events leading to the future travel along Time.
All areas of the window contribute to a Convergence and the merging of scenarios—and thus provides a summary.
A word of caution: Set aside preconceived notions. Any personal bias may initially tempt a quick exit. However, appreciating the entire window and surprises within only comes with looking at more than one perspective. Determining what is true in this life is something only you can satisfy for yourself. Start by a look at life's origins and change in your world today to see forces guiding us to the future.
Scientific evidence for global changes today leads to a merging of changes with a chronology of events described in Scripture. Look at Change
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. Consider the evidence
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. Explore a unique perspective that too few understand well.
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.
Video Introductions to WindowView:
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!

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.
