Science With and Without GodPosted: March 20, 2012
Atheists and agnostics argue that this planet we call earth is a lot older than most Christians think it is. Well, it’s not just atheists and agnostics. Most people believe that the world is about 4.6 billion years old. That’s a lot of years. I mean, that’s like twice the age of my grandma.
I read a few pages in the book of Genesis the other day, and I noticed that God created all this stuff in its mature stage. For example, he created fish as fish, not eggs. He created Adam as a man. Or a teenager. He didn’t create an infant is what I’m trying to say. Which means, if God did created this world, then yes, it might seem as if it was 4.6 billion years old, because it was created in a mature stage, but it might be younger. Either or.
I noticed that many Christians try to use science to convince atheists that God created the world. It’s funny, because atheist scientists really perfected secular/godless science, if I can call it that. I’m sure there’s a proper name for it, but you get the picture. Christian scientists don’t lead the scientific field. If they did, then the whole “God created the universe” thing would be the global consensus, instead of evolution.
If scientists who believe in God created crazy-awesome technology, or crazy-awesome cures, or crazy-awesome cool stuff that the world had never seen before, then Christian science would be taken to a whole new level. You know, like, when things that others say are impossible suddenly become realer than the screen you’re looking at right now. Then Christian science would be the science on top of the hill – the thing that everybody looks at, because it’s just that awesome. But that’s not the case right now. Right now, atheism is rational intelligence and Christianity is blatant stupidity. At least, that’s the consensus of the West. And Christians aren’t really doing much to change that consensus.
What do you think will happen in the future? Will the current secular science continue to dominate, or will Christians eventually do some amazing things in the scientific field and rise to the top? Does Christian science even have an impact on anything or is it just a dumb evangelistic tool used by religious zealots? Lemme know in the rectangle below.
