Science Does Not Have All the Answers

September 19th, 2011 Viewed 1662 times

Love Potion #9The way that scientists tell it, there’s only one way that you can be sure of the truth—if a scientist says so.

I frequent different forums over the Internet, and on Reddit it’s easy to get into a debate about Creation and Evolution that easily devolves into “I’m right because I’m a scientist”, even though the discussion was supposed to be about why Christians have trouble with TENS1.

What’s amazing is that there are many things that scientists—if they’re honest—will tell you that they don’t know (some language at destination site), and they will also state that they follow the scientific method, which means that they, at any time, might find data to disprove their hypothesis and they will begin to say that their new theory is right.  Not very convincing.

So, the next time that a scientist claims to have all the answers, do some research and you’ll find that it’s not quite as they’d have you to believe.

Not having enough to do trying to brainwash all the public school children to only believe one worldview, the press believes that it now has the right to dictate to the makers or home school curriculum what worldview they teach as well.

Never mind that the article itself states that the textbook writers are giving what a majority of their clients want—it focuses on how “unjust” it is that non-Christians do not have many text book options as homeschoolers where they can learn their preferred beliefs.

Debating Atheism/Evolution

May 9th, 2008 Viewed 2195 times

One of the things that I’ve seen in many of the debates that I’ve recently entered about the origins of the world and the existence of God is really unfruitful and fails to recognize the complexity of the discussion.

It is rooted in the strong belief of the veracity of their side of the argument.  Very few actually enter into this debate without a belief that they know the truth.  I believe that if those people are present, they’re probably bystanders, watching exactly what will be said.

Burden of Proof

May 5th, 2008 Viewed 2042 times

meditation Quite a while back I made a comment talking about the Expelled movie where I talked about the “Burden of Proof” and where it lies.  From there, I entered into a fascinating discussion on an atheist blog digging deeper into the topic.  I learned a few things from this discussion, and I thought I’d share a few things with you.

What It Means

“Burden of Proof” is a legal term, and refers to the person bringing the complaint.  The person bringing the complaint is the one that typically has to prove that his complaint is valid.  When I said that the burden of proof was on the Atheist, I was perhaps a bit too simplistic.

Science and God

One of the interesting this to me in the whole Creation/Evolution argument is the belief that somehow science is the answer to everything and is the expert on everything. Science, it seems, can tell you both if there’s a God and what happened throughout time, and it should never be questioned.

The strange thing is that this is exactly the opposite of what science is all about.
