So you might be asking yourself, “Why is this guy acting like he has some brand new truth?” Of course the world is round. Everyone knows it's round, there is no debate. That is a scientific fact.
And that is my point. The fact that everyone knows it; the fact that the debate is over; the fact that science declares it does NOT make it true. What makes it true is the TRUTH, not what science declares because science can be wrong. The Bible prophet, Isaiah, affirmed that the world was round as early as 700 B.C. Galileo knew it too but he was incarcerated in prison over four hundred years ago because he insisted on that fact in direct opposition to pop-scientific dogma of the day. Scientists then were wrong.
Do you know how many stars there are in the universe? Brilliant seventeenth century scientists such as Hipparchus, Ptolemy and Keplar all confirmed the number to be about 1000. According to them, the debate was over. Had they consulted the Bible, they could have saved the whole scientific community a lot of embarrassment. Hundreds and thousands of years earlier, men like Job, Jeremiah, Isaiah and the Apostle Paul all knew the universe to be immeasurable. Scientists then were wrong.
Because contemporary scientific theories often contradict scripture, many people struggle to reconcile biblical faith with science. Is the Genesis account of the creation of Adam and Eve true? Science says NO. But then sometimes, as in the examples above, science is wrong. You might recall the media coverage about ten years ago where genetic researchers concluded that all modern humans had to have descended from a single woman. They affectionately (or maybe sarcastically) referred to her as “Eve.” More recently, scientists surprised themselves once again. Two reports in Nature magazine claimed that all modern men share genes that derive from one single male ancestor. They have dubbed him “Y-chromosome Adam.”
Those recent genetic discoveries are troublesome to secularists who have insisted for years that humans have emerged independently, in different places, across different continents. But for people of faith, these findings only confirm the biblical account. There really was a first man and woman, not because science now admits it, but because it is the truth. Moses recorded that fact thousands of years ago and he tells us that God created them. Scientists were wrong.
Now we have this brand new life-threatening, crisis of world-wide economic and social and political proportions. Human caused GLOBAL WARMING has been accepted as fact by the majority of the lefty lunatics, secularists, liberals, and godless scientists. And they have convinced the mindless masses to all bow down to the guru of impending doom, the Green Messiah, Algore, (NOT a scientist) who has declared, “The debate is over.”
Ron Livesay, a friend of mine wrote the following in response to an article titled, “A Climate of Change,” that appeared in the Fall 2007 issue of National Parks:
The debate is over - Scientists are unbiased. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - The earth is flat. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - The sun revolves around the earth. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - Heavy objects fall faster than light objects. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - When someone is very sick, bleed the patient to get rid of the bad blood. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - An unborn baby is not human. It is only a tissue mass. It only becomes human after it is fully born, breathes, and proves itself to be viable. It is all right to kill it any time prior to viability, since it is not human, and killing it is much like killing a fish or a frog. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - Global cooling is a reality. It must be true. A scientist said so in 1973.
The debate is over - People are causing global cooling by using fossil fuels (1973). It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - Global warming is a reality. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - People are causing global warming by using fossil fuels. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - Evolution is true. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - God does not exist. It must be true. A scientist said so.
The debate is over - People who say "the debate is over" usually end up with egg on their faces.(This one is true. No scientist said so).Ron Livesay
I am not antagonistic to real, honest science. However, I do have a problem with pseudo-scientific or religious theories derived from false presuppositions that are presented as undeniable truth in the face of reasonable doubt or in contradiction to THE TRUTH of the Word of God.
The question, “What is truth” has troubled students and philosophers throughout history but the answer is really quite simple; Truth is that which is true regardless of what scientists or philosophers say. The more important question is, “Does God exist?” If He does, it would seem reasonable to conclude that His Word is also true. Whenever science and the Bible conflict, science is wrong.
There are many examples of Biblical truth that have been validated by science. However, science has NEVER disproved the Bible. God’s Word is true. A friend of mine often says, “All truth is God’s truth.” It is comforting to know that, as Christians, we do not need to check our brains at the door when we enter the arena of faith.
“The word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.” Psalm 33:4
