Aldous Huxley said: “Modern science makes it impossible to believe in a personal God.” In our technological, space-age society many scientists believe that the Bible may be an inspirational book, but that it is full of errors when it speaks on scientific matters. Evolutionists, anthropologists and almost the entire field of science today strongly contend that they have finally been able to disprove much of the Bible.
May the words of the Psalmist present the challenge to the above contingent of our most prestigious scientific minds who hold to this belief today.
We read in (Psalm 19:7-9):
The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.
God’s Word says that it is perfect, sure, right, pure, clean, and true. We further read in (John 17:17): “…Thy word is truth.” God Himself, the Creator of the entire universe, is telling our modern men of science that His Word has no errors, including scientific ones. This is an amazing statement, but remember that the Bible is an amazing book. The stage is set. Let’s examine this most provocative area.
Any student of the history of science has to be impressed with the fact that this branch of knowledge has been incredibly wrong so often that one has to wonder if it really is science.
Down through the centuries so much of the discoveries of science have proven totally wrong, and many of its time-honored theories have been completely abandoned. Even hard facts (at least to their contemporaries) have been shown to be nothing more than hard fiction.
Today we treat our great scientists and men of medicine as if they were gods who have all the answers to life’s deep mysteries and problems. The reality of the situation is, however, that if we were to keep a scorecard over the past two millennia their marks would not pass the test of time.
Many of our greatest scientists have had the discoveries that made them famous proven totally wrong. Many others who proposed ideas and theories that would later change and revolutionize our world were, at the time they proposed them, thought of as crazy, foolish, and plain dead wrong. Strange how a field that prides itself on accuracy and wisdom can be in such a state of mass confusion and error.
