COLETTO, Renato. Kuyper's razor? rethinking science and religion, trinitarian scholarship and God's eternity. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 1018-6441.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i1.1891.

This article explores three research fields in contemporary Christian scholarship and argues that the way they are approached is often questionable due to the basic assumptions, the methods or the implications. The following allegations are proposed. Research on the relationship between religion and science is based on a framework of assumptions which does not reflect the biblical standpoint properly. Trinitarian scholarship expects too much from the presumed correspondence between Trinity and created reality, whilst it tends to neglect other resources available to Christian scholarship. Scientific reflection on God's eternity is speculative in as much as it tries to transcend the modal horizon of knowledge. In these three cases (other cases are also briefly mentioned) it is argued that 'Kuyper's razor' (an approach promoted in the Kuyperian reformational tradition) would help rethinking research in these areas.
