Science and Religion


Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
Said Albert Einstein

 

Science and religion are often seen as rivals because establishment science and religion some times have conflicts. This is because the Scientific Establishment refuses to allow any consideration of God or the supernatural. They seem to really want it to be science vs religion rather than Science and religion. When allowed to do so science and religion can compliment each other. That fact is that religion can inspire scientific research and science can help the understanding of religion.

Creation Science is a good example it shows this concept in action. Starting with the Bible has produced successfully tested predictions and science has provided useful insight into a number of Biblical passages.


Examples of theories inspired by the Bible with successful predictions:

Accelerated nuclear decay which successfully predicted zircon helium diffusion rates.

Humphreys’ model of planetary magnetic fields successfully predicted the magnetic field strength of Neptune and the observed decrease in Mercury’s magnetic field.


Further more science has helped the understanding some Biblical passages.

Job 38:4a Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?

Most of the dry land on the planet Earth sits on a granite crust that goes deep into the Earth. This crust is literally a foundation on which the continents sit.


Job 9:6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

This verse refers to earth quakes but also to pillars of the Earth. Often in caves stalactites and stalagmites grow stalactite over stalagmite. Sometimes they grow into a single pillar from floor to ceiling forming literal pillars of the Earth.


The point science and religion complement each other when allowed to do so. This requires that science to be open to religious or supernatural concepts. Refusing to even consider possibly the supernatural is being antagonistic to religion.  

The fact is that the scientific establishment refusal of all consideration of the supernatural mans that when mainstream science and religion deal with the same topic there will be conflict with the exception of Atheism which denies the supernatural.    

This conflict is most evident in origins research where the denial of the supernatural eliminates all consideration of God. Not only is God excluded before any evidence is even considered, but any attempt to include intelligent involvement in origins is fought passionately. As a result the scientific establishment actively antagonistic to the Biblical account of creation because it has been removed from consideration even before any evidence is considered. 

The scientific establishment at fault because they exclude God and the supernatural right from the start and no consideration of intelligent involvement in origins is allowed. They are also antagonistic toward those who violate these rules.

A classic example is Richard Sternberg; a devout evolutionist; was editor of The Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington in 2004. He authorized the publication of a paper by Dr. Stephen Meyer that had passed peer-review. The paper “The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories” presented scientific evidence for intelligent design in biology. As a result he was persecution by the  Smithsonian and the National Center for Science Education. It’s a safe bet no other editor would risk the same fate by publishing an ID friendly paper. 


The real controversy is that because the scientific establishment refuses all consideration of God they are actually pushing atheism. So the real controversy is not science vs. religion. It is not Creation vs. Evolution. The real controversy IS Atheism vs. Theism and more specifically Atheism Vs. the Bible.

In conclusion the scientific establishment's refusal of all consideration of God and its intolerance of dissent. they have effectively declared war on God.

The controversy results form the refusal of theists to bow the knee to atheism.
