IMO, science and nature are not and cannot be in competition with one another - science is a means of studying something, or the knowledge acquired through such study (though many in the world treat it as if it were religion and set doctrine (though they wouldn't use those words)).

Perhaps these verses will help: https://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testa ... ang=eng#76

I would also recommend the topical guide (both Science and Nature are topics there) and the dictionary definitions of these words.

If you post more thoughts / details about the idea you're trying to explore, that might spur more ideas from others...

FWIW,

Here is a link to a good write-up on the environment and our duty and stewardship for conservation.

At the risk of this thread getting any further into a religious discussion I must remind all users of the Code of Conduct restriction that states "You may not post ... Religious discussions or debate." The purpose of the Forum is to discuss Church technology, record keeping, and some administration. Religious discussions are beyond the scope and charter of the Forum.

Questions regarding doctrine should be directed to your local priesthood leaders.
