Question:

Dear Rabbi,

I mind much science thought in my life from education and gifted years in experiment. My family is secular and my father is a scientist.

We finally are learning Torah and now I moodily find the time often to study science which parnasa might have required.

Am I permitted to minimize the direction of science pursuit if parnasa best is not best? I would and have been continuing Torah study although coming late to meet obligations has presented greater challenge.

Looking ahead, I think with a scientific mind but invest in a religious sense. My science was discouraged by the local synagogue children who inferred it was bad mood.

How does the Torah student view the natural world, human body, medicine and chemistry? These seem consequential.

Many thanks.

Answer:

My apologies but I don’t understand what you mean by “Am I permitted to minimize the direction of science pursuit if parnasa best is not best?” Please explain.
