  • My Blog

    this is going to be my new blogsite for regular rants of mine.

    This hopefully will supplement my webpages.

    please, if you comment stay on subject. I am interested in feedback, especially real thoughtful feedback. if you don't agree with what i believe that's fine too, but argue about why you believe differently, if that's appropriate.

    and of course, this is for fun interest and for something to think about, not to offend anyone's ideas or beliefs.

Scientists ?

Why is it that we Christians think of Science and Scientists differently than Math and Mathematicians ?

I was in conversation before with some Atheists who believe that being logical and being scientific is contrary to believing in God. Just shows me the state of our educational system is going dangerously downhill. Is America really SO conservative that people are not allowed to question what they are told or theorize or otherwise be creative ? Don’t people read their history books? All the times that scientists “proved” something and then later came back and said they were wrong and now they’ve found the reason and now they’re sure they are right. And we all get confused and say ” how can they be so sure they are right this time ?”

I wonder when science was developing as a subject, when did it change from the study of how things work, to a religion where some people who study it actually say that Science counters Religion ? In order for that to happen, some people would have to believe in Religion and the others would have to believe in Science.

I still believe that scientists are just like mathagicians, they study our world and figure out how it works. They’ll never figure out WHY is works, but I can surely tell you WHY it all works.

Look at a┬ámathematician, they study how numbers work and number theory and all kinds of neat stuff. Never in their studies do they say, “well, hey. Fibonacci numbers have been proven to show the shape of a snail’s shell, so Math must have created snail shells.” We all understand that math defines numbers and studies life and numbers. Math tries to define numbers in our world.

Science, on the other hand, says, “we looked at the snail-shell and we saw a snail being born, so you have to prove to us that God created it and not Science.”

The difference is in the application of the tool. Math is a tool. Science is a tool. They both define our world and help us to understand it. But they didn’t create it. They don’t prove that God doesn’t exist. They actually prove that he does.

Do you honestly believe that with millions of operations going on in a billions cells in your body, multiplied by the billions of people on our planet, they are just accidentally happening correctly for years ? Your body works consistently the same 90% of the time, yet cells are malleable and can change anything about their structure or makeup by accident or mutation at any time. Yet, they don’t.

Belief in Science is a problem of Christians, not Atheists who believe science is the answer. Christians need to realize that there are people who study and experiment and prove things and are scientists. There are others who say science proves that the universe started with a Big Bang, but you can’t prove that your God exists. Of course, I say God created the Big Bang, because they can’t prove he didn’t. But they are basically saying that Science is the antithesis of God. I think the two co-exist, but for some reason many people can’t understand that.

The point though, and I don’t think of this lightly, these people who believe in Science, are the enemy of all religions.
