"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called."
Though evolutionists would have you believe there's a war between science and faith, the very idea of a conflict is preposterous. Creation Moments board member Dr. Donald Clark points out that many of the early modern scientists were Christians – like Galileo, Copernicus and Newton. Because of their faith, they believed in a God of order, and this drove them to look for the order in the universe in the first place.
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them."
Evolutionists sometimes challenge those of us who believe in creation with the words, "Just name one scientist who doesn't accept evolution!" Since many Christians are not familiar with the names of notable scientists, the evolutionist then says, "See! You can't name any because there aren't any!"
"Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me."
Dr. David Menton is a biologist who believes that God created the heavens and the Earth in six days only some six thousand years ago. As he likes to point out, he is a biologist who evolutionists say cannot exist – a biologist who rejects evolution.
"For this they are willingly ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:"
Most people find the subject of radiometric dating too technical to understand. Until recent years, scientists who believe in creation haven't had the necessary resources to explore radiometric dating in detail.
“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”
If Isaac Newton or someone else had never made the discoveries Newton made, our world would be very different today. He is one of the most important scientists in all of history. What many people don’t know is that this great scientist was a creationist. He actually wrote more Bible commentaries than he did scientific papers.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
We often hear today that no true scientists are creationists because science disproves creation. The truth is, most of the founders of the various disciplines of modern science were creationists, as are a great many scientists today.
“Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?”
Did life form all by itself, without a Creator, in some warm little pool of water or a clod of mud many billions of years ago? Some scientists would like us to think so. Over the years, newspaper headlines have declared that life has been created in the laboratory. We are told that life is no mystery and that the chemicals that cause life are common.
As we read Genesis 2, we might get the idea that humans were created before the animals and even before plants. Since this would seem to be a clear contradiction of Genesis chapter 1, some have said that the creation account does not intend to offer literal history. Is this really the case?
“And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
Many scientists have rejected the idea that man has a spirit – that we are no more than simply material organisms. After all, they reason, man evolved, but a non-material thing like a spirit cannot evolve.
Evolution is completely materialistic in its outlook. Nineteenth-century promoters of evolution admitted that they devised the idea of naturalistic evolution to get rid of the idea of a non-material, spiritual dimension.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Just when was the “beginning” when God created the heavens and the earth, as spoken of in Genesis 1:1? In these days when scientists talk about “billions” of years, the question of what the Bible says on the matter of origins becomes even more important.
