The Scientific Affront to Christianity

1 Timothy 6:20 — O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”

Many people in the world today think that Christian beliefs are just “fairy tales”, and “myths”. When Christians try to bring up things like Creationism, and healing many people dismiss it by saying things like “Oh, no, I believe in science.” The trouble with this is that much, if not all, of Christianity is either supported by science, or out of its explanatory range.

Romans 1:22 — Professing to be wise, they became fools.

I have one teacher who I try to talk to creation about. He often starts the conversation by asking me a question. When I start to talk about how I believe that God created everything in a literal six days he always asks me this:  “What about the fossil record?” The trouble with this question is that it,  by itself, cannot prove anything. All that this question claims is that the fossil record exists. I could respond “Yes I think that there is a fossil record.” My fossil record of course is one that proves God created the world in six days. In order to truly understand his question I need to ask him to clarify.

When I get past his question my teacher brings the conversation to a dead stop by saying “Well, I believe in science.” This, also proves nothing. Science doesn’t disagree with what I believe, certainly the majority of the scientists do, but the science doesn’t. Most people seem to think that science and Christian beliefs are in constant conflict. Science says that humanity evolved, Christians say they were created. Science “disproves the existence of the supernatural, Christians believe in a God, and angles, and demons. Science does not contradict what I believe! First off, the science involved in the origin of the humans species is called origins science, and cannot be nearly as certain as operational science which is the science of repeatable, and testable things. Second, Science studies the physical and natural world. It can say nothing about a supernatural world.

Most non-Christians believe that science and Christianity are in conflict when really they aren’t. It is the scientists who disagree, not the science.

Colossians 1:17 — He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
