Science has its limitations. About the time I graduated from high school, science pronounced that the earth was growing colder. A vocal group of scientists were proclaiming the approach of another Ice Age. A few years later, science said the earth was growing warmer. Suddenly, the alarm was sounded against the threat of global warming. In a few short years, we went from the immanency of an Ice Age to the global warming frenzy.
Let us not overlook this truth: There are a number of bonafide scientists who believe the climate change scare is fueled by politics. It is a shame when political correctness interferes with real science.
There are scientists who hold to the creation account just as it is spelled out in Genesis. This nation’s declining educational system has worked overtime in teaching that creationism is unscientific and evolution is an indisputable fact. The truth is both creationism and evolution are theories based on faith. Neither can be rightfully called scientific. Again, there are many scientists who have abandoned Darwin and the scores of spurious evolutionary theories.
Because of advances in medical science, my mother survived three bouts of cancer. I thank God for the fact that I have my mother to this day. But science is not infallible. Recently, science told me that I could expect a sunny day. A few hours later, I was caught without an umbrella. Again, science has its limitations.
Charles Darwin believed that persons of African descent were more closely related to apes and monkeys and, as such, were vastly inferior to Caucasians. I seldom hear evolutionary scientists mentioning this unfortunate teaching from Darwin, but wide-eyed tyrants such as Adolf Hitler and Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger were evil people whose despotic actions were motivated by Darwin.
Finally, there is nothing unscientific about believing in the Bible. The Bible is not a science book, but the Bible is certainly not unscientific. Additionally, God does not ask us to check our brains in at the church door. We would all do well to remember that the Bible teaches the earth is a sphere; conversely, early science insisted that the world was flat.
