inventions like Cable TV, Cell Phone, Satellite and Super Computer make
many people, especially youngsters, in the 21st century to doubt the very
existence of God. "Science or Scriptures?" is a question that
constantly challenges the mind.
Bible is not against Science. The Bible in fact agrees with true Science.
The Bible abounds in scientific facts. It declares that the world is round
(Isa 40:22). Even thousands of years before, the Bible has stated that the
earth hangs on nothing (Job 26:7). We have learned from the Bible the
scientific facts such as the stars in the sky cannot be numbered (Gen
15:5), and there is oil in the valley of Siddim (Arabia) (Gen 14:10). The
Bible has also mentioned that iron is taken from the earth (Job 28:2) and
that molten glass is cast into moulds (Job 37:18). Surely God who has
created Heaven and earth knows all this!
eminent Scientists believed in the Bible. Galileo (1564-1641), an Italian
mathematician and physicist, proved that the sun rotates on its axis. He
was a serious student of the Bible and sought to uphold the absolute
authority of the Scriptures as the Word of God.
Kepler (1571-1630) was perhaps the greatest astronomer of all time and a
brilliant mathematician. His three laws of planetary motion were
discovered without the use of telescopes and without the benefit of modern
mathematics. How Kepler did it is something that still amazes today's
Scientists. Kepler wrote many books on Christianity.
Boyle (1627-1691) is often called the Father of Modern Science. Boyle was
the first to differentiate an element and a compound. He stated repeatedly
that his whole purpose of scientific experiment was to demonstrate the
reasonableness and harmony of the Scriptures and natural law and
Newton (1642-1727), the greatest scientific mind of all history,
discovered the law of gravitation. He developed calculus and invented the
reflecting telescope. He said, "the authority of the Prophets is
divine, and no power on earth is authorised to alter what they
one could destroy the faith and love these brilliant men had for God
and His Bible. The more they researched on scientific subjects the
more they revered the Sovereign Saviour!
fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom!"
