Principle : Bible reveals true science
- No conflicts, inaccuracies, in
- Scientists are mistaken in their
investigations into origins
Are scientists hostile to religions?
Principle: Reality is nothing but energy & matter
"Scientific method is the only reliable path to knowledge"
- Completely neutral with respect to their own world view
- Everything in life is reducible to physical process
< God is a Supreme Being; invisible, omnipotent and wise >
* conflicting arguments:
Science vs. Hinduism
1) existence of God and the beliefs in Him
"For since the creation of the world
God's invisible qualities—his eternal power
and divine nature—have been clearly seen,
being understood from."
2) lack of God's love and mercy
"For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life."
3) Nature =/= God
2 Corinthians 4:4
In their case the god of this world
has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,
to keep them from seeing the light of
the gospel of the glory of.
"who knows, who ever told, from whence this vast creation rose? No gods had then been born- who then can e'er the truth disclose? Whence sprang this wd, and whether framed by hand divine or no - its lord in heaven alone can tell, if even he can show."
the order of the Universe
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
"That they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us."
For “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’
"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
