Do the Bible and Science Mix?
John 3:12
“If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things.”
Scientific principles learned in the Bible have led to countless scientific discoveries and saved millions of lives. It’s true. Without the Bible, we would never have the blessings of modern science...

I had an argument with someone in my church, a physicist who maintains that the stages of creation were merely undefined "periods" of time that could stretch over millions of years and allow for evolution. Although I pointed out to him that Genesis states that the creative timeframe is one day and that Peter clarifies this is as a thousand of our years (2 Peter 3:8), the physicist refused to look at this logically. He would not acknowledge that the Lord has been very specific about how long the days of creation are.

Interestingly, John saw the history of the earth in vision, and according to his account (which is corroborated by other scripture), the physical age of the earth after the Fall (before the Second Coming) is about 6,000 years. This is followed by the Millennium, which is about 1,000 years. But the physicist didn't want to acknowledge the streamlined way this agrees with the timeframe for creation: one week, which is approximately 7,000 of our years. This is because the physicist deals with a science that denies a young earth.

When I pointed out evolution is blown out of the water by the Lord's statement that he created everything after its own kind, the physicist said there was room for healthy debate, and he didn't mind a little philosophical discussion.

What's there to discuss? You either believe the Lord, or you don't.
