SCIENCE AND CREATION
Science and Biblical Apologetics
Creation, science, and faith in God - Do we have to choose between science and God? Or does the Creator of the universe actually know what He's talking about?
Day One: Faith and Science
Science is defined as "the observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena"...However, a Christian's belief in science should never be like our belief in God. A Christian can have faith in God and respect for science, as long as we remember which is perfect and which is not...
Day Two: Creationism and Science
There is currently a lot of debate over the validity of creationism...Creation science is often dismissed by the secular community and accused of lacking scientific value. However, creationism is clearly compatible with a scientific approach to any topic...
Day Three: Creationism and the Science Community
The scientific community, as it exists today, holds naturalism as the preferred philosophy, but there is no overt reason why naturalism should be preferred by science over creationism...
Day Four: Faith and String Theory
In short, the relationship between string theory and God can be stated this way: If string theory is true, then God created it. That is the only definitive statement we can deduce from the Bible about string theory...
Day Five: The Expanding Universe
Virtually all scientists say that the universe is expanding. The question of concern for many Christians is whether an expanding universe supports creationism or the Big Bang theory. The answer is that it supports both!..."
Day Six: The Multiverse
In summary, the multiverse theory was invented to explain away the clear evidence of design in the universe along with the fact that the universe is finely-tuned to support life (the anthropic principle). The multiverse theory essentially states that there are multitudes of universes, each formed entirely randomly, with our universe being the only one (or one of a few) that randomly developed in such a way that it supports life...
Day Seven: Quantum Physics
Quantum physics, also known as quantum mechanics, is an application of mathematics used to describe the behavior of matter and energy at an unimaginably tiny scale. Even more than other specialized fields within the sciences, it is extraordinarily difficult to explain quantum theories in layman's terms...
Day Eight: The God Particle
The "God particle" is the nickname of a subatomic particle called the Higgs boson. In layman's terms, different subatomic particles are responsible for giving matter different properties. One of the most mysterious and important properties is mass...The Higgs boson, or "God particle," is believed to be the particle which gives mass to matter...
