Science & The BibleDefining ScienceTwo basic types of science:Operational Science: Uses observable, repeatable experiments to try to discover truthOrigin Science: Relies on relics from the past and historical records to try to discover truth

Main Difference: Operation science is based upon the present whereas origin science is based upon the past.

Not All Scientists Endorse Evolutionary TheoryDr. Raymond Damadian:Young-earth Creationist Credited by many as the man who invented the MRI scanner. He has received numerous awards for his work.Inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1989

When our research is based upon biblical truths about the past, we find that our interpretations of the biological and geological facts make sense of what we see in the real world, whereas evolutionary interpretations dont really fit what we see. - http://www.answersingenesis.orgGeology:geologists have begun to recognize that catastrophic processes are a better explanation for many of the earths rock layers. - http://www.answersingenesis.org

Genesis 7:19And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered.

Cosmology/Astronomy:Time/The Universe Had a Beginning"The conclusion of this lecture is that the universe has not existed forever. Rather, the universe, and time itself, had a beginning" - Stephen Hawking (1942- ) The Beginning of Time1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,

Cosmology/Astronomy:The Universe is ExpandingThe Universe is one, infinite, immobile. - Giordano Bruno (1548-1600)

Wrong!Cosmology/Astronomy:The Universe is Expanding

Astronomer Edwin Hubble's landmark paper on the rate of expansion of the universe was published in 1929.Isaiah 44:24 I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;

Cosmology/Astronomy:The Cessation of Creation

"Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing," he writes. "Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.- Stephen Hawking

"Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.- Stephen HawkingGenesis 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

(NeverObserved) Cosmology/Astronomy:Number of Stars:Brahe guessed 777.Kepler claimed 1,005.Hipparchus found 1,022Ptolemy raised the number to 1,056. Today many scientists have admitted, Space is probably infinite Francis Halzen, professor of physics

Jeremiah 33:22 the host of heaven cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured Cosmology/Astronomy:Every Star is Different

1 Corinthians 15:41 one star differs from another star in glory. Centuries BeforeAdvanced MethodsOf Studying Stars! Cosmology/Astronomy:Astronomical ForeknowledgePleiades and Orion (Constellations) gravitationally bound star groups.

Job 38:31 Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? Cosmology/Astronomy:Earth: Controlled by the Heavens

(Job 38:33) Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?

Cosmology/Astronomy:Astronomical Foreknowledge: Earth is a Sphere Taught and believed that the earth was flat until Christopher Columbus proved otherwise in 1492

Isaiah 40:22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth Cosmology/Astronomy:Astronomical Foreknowledge:Earth Suspended Ancients believed earth held up by God Atlas

Cosmology/Astronomy:Earth Suspended or upon backs of elephants who stood on back of a giant tortoise

Cosmology/Astronomy:Earth Suspended Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.

Physics:ThermodynamicsEvolutionary thought describes a universe that is evolving and becoming more highly organized and complex.

Psalm 102:2526Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 26 They will perishthey will all grow old like a garment Physics:Movement of LightSir Isaac Newton (1642 1727) is accredited for having discovered the movement of light .Job 38:1920 Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, 20 That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

Origins:Order of Creation Evolution teaches that various life forms on the planet evolved in a progressive order.

Gen. 1:24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, [each] according to its kind"; and it was so.Oceanography:Order of Creation The Bible tells us that earth began as a water world.

Alfred Wegener discovered Pangaea in 1915. After discovering the idea of tectonic plates.

Psalm 104:66 You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters stood above the mountains. Oceanography:Valleys & Springs Exist on the Bottom of the Sea (1872-1876) British scientists aboard HMS Challenger is credited with providing the first real view of major seafloor features such as the deep ocean basins.Job 38:16 Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths?

Oceanography:Ocean Currents & Channels exist in the SeaMatthew Fontaine Maury (1806-1873) became Father of Modern Oceanography and Naval Meteorology" and later, "Scientist of the Seas by studying the Bible.Psalm 8:8 The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.

Oceanography:Ocean Currents & Channels exist in the SeaMatthew Fontaine Maury (1806-1873) became Father of Modern Oceanography and Naval Meteorology" and later, "Scientist of the Seas by studying the Bible.

(Psalms 18:15) Then the channels of the sea were seen, The foundations of the world were uncovered At Your rebuke, O LORD, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. (NKJV)

His BibleHydrologic (Water) Cycle:Bernard Palissy Credited in the 16th century to be the scientist who compiled the theories that existed for years and "wrote" our modern hydrological cycle.

Job 36:2728 For He draws up drops of water, Which distill as rain from the mist, 28 Which the clouds drop down And pour abundantly on man. Chemistry:

Weight of AirEvagelista Torricelli (1608-1647) discovered that air has weight in 1640.Job 28:25 To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure.

Biology:Life is in BloodWilliam Harvey (1578-1657) discovered that blood circulation is the key factor in physical lifeLeviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood...

Biology:Infectious DiseasesLouis Pasteur (1822-1895) proved way beyond doubt that certain diseases are caused by infectious agents.Leviticus 13:46 All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He is unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.

Biology:Infectious DiseasesLouis Pasteur (1822-1895) proved way beyond doubt that certain diseases are caused by infectious agents.(Deuteronomy 23:12-13) "Also you shall have a place outside the camp, where you may go out; "and you shall have an implement among your equipment, and when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and turn and cover your refuse.

Source of Life:Evolution Teaches:life originated from nonliving matter without intervention from any intelligent being.

Source of Life:Evolution Teaches:different species have a common ancestor.

Source of Life:The Bible Teaches:

Gen. 1:11 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb [that] yields seed, [and] the fruit tree [that] yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed [is] in itself, on the earth"; and it was so. Gen. 1:21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that [it was] good. Gen. 1:24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, [each] according to its kind"; and it was so.

Source of Life:Life from life
