Why does a PhD in chemistry and physics discuss things as is he is a ThD?  Your science convictions are right, no argument. I accept that you are no dummy, but why are you defending Christianity?


I defend the Christian faith because I believe it is true.  I believe Jesus was who he said he was, and that he backed this up by his life and his deeds.  I believe science is of some value, but science does not answer the questions we really care about—Why am I here?  What is my purpose?  What is the right thing to do?  Why is there suffering and evil?  Science is useless for these questions.  I believe that Christianity answers these question in a much more consistent way than naturalism (science as a philosophy) or any other ism.   I do this because it matters.  It matters a lot.
