Science vs Religion

How science works in uniformity with Creationism

How it is often parceived

Many people see religion and science as complete opposites. They tend to believe that the theories and facts of science act as fallocies against the Bible. Science teaches things such as evolution, and the big bang theory, while creationism teaches that the earth was created i"n a mere 6 days by a supreme being. Many believe that science discredits and contradicts the Bible. Now before i get started, i need to make it clear that the Bible is the only one true objective truth in the Christian faith. Since it is the word of God, it is the only factual account and piece of evidence of the Christian religion and belief. Now some might say that the experiencing of the Holy Spirit is proof, but thats not peerly factual. That is subjective experience and thus cannot be used as a factual account (for more information on this, read http://testifyingtograce.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/subjective-experience-vs-objective-truth/). Now since it is believed by christians that the Bible is true and is objective and factual, if only one thing in the Bible could be disproved and shown as contradictory to other facts of life, then the whole book would be faulty and possible, false. So if the common misconceptions in the Bible are proven to be incorrect, and the teachings of this "objective truth" are proven to work with Science in an extreme uniformity, the existence of God would be almost universally correct.

Man made from dust!

Okay, so this is one of my absolute favorites! Many people call the creation of Adam scientific rubbish. That is in fact wrong. I have no clue where that idea came from, because in the Bible, it is said in Genesis 2:7 that man was created out of dust.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils
the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

It later states in Genesis 3:19:

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”

Man was created from dust and will then return to dust, thus contributing to the soil of the earth. Upon death, the human body decays and returns to the soil of the earths core in which he came. So there is the religious side of it. But what is the scientific proof that any of this makes sense? The human body is made up of materials and minerals found on the earths core. So for funzzies sake, lets look at some statistics.
As you can tell, the earths crust and human body have many similarities. This is awesome, because the scientific portion of this ties into the verses perfectly! But we werent only made out of clay. God is often considered and credited as being the master potter!

“Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?” (Job 10:9)

Upon taking a pottery class a few years ago, i have a uniform knowledge that pottery is made primarily out of water instead of just dust or dirt. And seeing as the human body is 60% water, this also fits into scientific proportions. The fact that this all fits together is absolutely amazing and astonishing! Like, come on, youve gotta admit that thats pretty freakin cool!

What holds the earth up?

Throughout history people have questioned whether earth is suspended within space and how? The ancient greeks believed that the earth was held up by a string of turtles. A 3000 year old belief within the Hindi religion states that the earth rides on the back of an elephant, which stands on the back of a turtle, which swims in a cosmological pool! Ridiculous right?! The Bible simply states in Job 27:7 that "He spreads out the northern skies over empty space, he suspends the earth over nothing.". Now thats an epic, factual statement! Inspiring but simplistic. Describing Gods majesty with a few simple words. Now how did Job know that it was suspended in space? Because God told him! Only God could prove the scientific existence of a planet suspended by nothing, hundreds or thousands of years before man could prove it.

Flat Earth vs Round Earth

It is he (God) who sits above the circle of the Earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in (Isaiah 40:22)


Many people see this verse as a misconception and a fault with the Bible. They interpret the fact that it says "circle of a earth", to mean that it is flat. If this verse did indeed mean that upon interpretation, then the entire Bible would be wrong! So for thousands of years the earth was thought to be flat, and it wasnt until Vespucci sailed around the world did they prove that it is indeed round. But in Judo-Christian faith, it was thought to be round long before it was ever proven. Now this verse is interesting because it says "circle", being misleading to those who aim to misinterpret it. Upon researching the topic further, the ancient Hebrew word that was originally used in this scripture meant "circle". Why would they say "circle" instead of "round"? This is because there was no Hebrew word for "sphere" or "round" doring that time period. The Hebrew kanguage tends to focus on the function of an object instead of the direct physical attributes. Apposed to an American, more wester view, in which we would focus on the shape, color and attributes of the object. An example would be a pond. In the western world, we would describe it as being "wet, blue, and possibly big", while in the Hebrew and eastern world would see it as "a place in which one can replenish their strength and obtain water and bathe". So during the translation process and the difference in views, this is how it came out, thus leading to a lot of misconceptions with the verse. Later on, Solomon wrote, "He set a compass upon the face of the deep." (Proverbs 8:27). In this case It is talking about a compass as a circulatory object. As you can see, to get the point across in Hebrew, items were put into proportion with other objects with similar attributes. It is also possible though, that this verse describes that God "encircles" the earth and is everywhere at once. Omnipotent and all knowing. But, this verse located in Proverbs and Isaiah can be extra evidence to the non-contradictions of science and christianity.

Ends of the Earth

As we all know and has been proven, the earth is round. It says so in the Bible, and has also been scientifically proven by man. Now check out these verses:

Duet 13:7, 28:49, 28:64, 30:4, 33:17; 1 Sam 2:10; Nehemiah 1:9; Job 28:24, 37:3, 38:13; Psalm 2:8, 19:4, 22:27, 46:9, 48:10, 59:13, 61:2, 65:5, 65:8, 67:7, 72:8, 95:4, 98:3, 135:7; Proverbs 17:24 30:4; Isaiah 5:26, 11:12, 24:16, 26:15, 40:28, 41:5, 41:9, 42:10, 43:6, 45:22, 44:23, 48:20, 49:6, 52:10, 59:18, 60:9, 62:11; Ezekiel 27:33; Jeremiah 25:32, 31:8, 50:41, 51:16; Daniel 4:11, 4:20, 4:22; Micah 5:4; Zechariah 9:10; Matt 12:42, 24:31; Mark 13:27; Luke 11:31; Acts 1:8, 13:47; Romans 10:18; Rev 20:8.

The concept of "The ends of the earth" is cited over 50 times within the Bible. But as we know, it is round. So what the heck? Well, again we must look at the originated words in which it was written in. As the old testament was written in Hebrew and the New Testament was written in Greek, we must study the original word most often used to describe the phrase "ends of the earth" in both Hebrew and Greek. The Hebrew word for it is,“אפס” and greek word is “peras”. The definition for both of these examples is "highest or utmost parts of the earth". So this verse isnt a direct reference to an ending earth, but to the far reaching parts of the planet. Thus, this cannot be used to credit the Bible as being contradictory to factual information. I decided to study this verse because its one that people who are looking to prove scrpiture wrong tend to tear apart and be nit picky-about. So thats a big one! Now im gonna go to the bathroom.....be right back.

The Earth Will Never Move

The Lord reigns, he is robed with majesty; the Lord is robed;
he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
- Psalms 93:1


This is another one people like to use to try to find a fallocy in the Bible. As we all know, science has proved that the earth moves in uniformity with the son and the entire universe. It is clear that it is moving. Needless to say Earth is a huge object. But what keeps our planet circling the sun? Gravity of course. Gravity is the invisible force that attracts objects to each other proportionate to their mass. It was first described by Newton and is covered within his 3 laws. The Sun’s gravity is pulling on the Earth. As you know we are not falling, as space has no ups and downs. We are not falling because the Earth is moving through space at a rotation of a tremendous velocity of 29.8 km/s or for some comparison it’s over 67,000 mph! The Earth is caught in the Sun’s gravitational pull, but stayes in a constant path. In this verse, the origin of the word "moved", means "waver, fall out of course, or to slip from the intended path". So in this case, it is a matter of escaping the suns gravitational pull. So due to this force of gravity, what amount of force would be needed to allow it to escape? As i said earlier, Newtons Third law of motion can be used to describe how it would excape the sun and in this case "move". According to my research, it would take a minumum force of 42.1 km/s and would have to be large enough to hit the entirety of the earth instead of a small portion. Scientists conclude that this could never happen, as the earth would be destroyed on impact. And in this verse, God promises that this will never happen. So dont worry about it!

Other Instances In Which Christianity and Science Work In Uniformity

So im gonna be really lazy and copy and paste these from a website. I looked them all up in my bible and they are all legit. I just dont want to pick and choose and dtype. Its late....cut me some slack.

Not All Science Coincides With Religion Well.

It has currently become my belief that both science and Creationism can work together in a strong sense of uniformity. Now this is only in cases of factual evidence. Theories completely contradict the Bible. So the factual part of science conincides with religion very well. An example where it would fail in uniformity, is the study of evolutionary biology. It is a theory produced by Charles Darwin which follows the concepts of natural selection and slor, cellular change into more intellectual beings. This is obviously against what the Bible says, as in Genesis it states that God created man. In evolution, man comes from lesser beings, such as lung fish and primates. They are completely contradictory, and the Bible does, in no way, compliment evolution. I actually believe evoltuion to be vastly wrong! If it was true, then why dont we find fossils of animals in their transitional stage. Its a flaw because of "missing links". If evolution is correct, we would be finding frogs with birds wings and whatnot. Now another theory was invented to account for this issue. A theory was created called puncuated equilibrium. This theory states that the evolutionary change happens so simultaniously and quickly, that it is impossible to observe. The definition of science is "systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation". Because it cannot be observed, this theory is complete rubbissh and must in fact, be wrong. This is one of many instances in which science doesnt coincide with religion. But all the instances in which it doesnt work in uniformity, are all based on theories and break scientific principles. The Bible and religion work with facts of science. Thus, God the Father, the Christian God, is also the God of science. Now this poses a question. Does that mean that atheism and creationism are so closely related? A religion is a belief in which someone uses to explain questions they may have about life or the universe (thats my own bad definition...). So technically you could say that science is an atheists religion. They always turn to science to disprove creationism and will do anything to do so. They will even resort to theories that were proven wrong 25 years ago, and claim them as fact simply so they dont have to lose the battle. Its an issue of pride! So in a way, the 2 religions are closer than many believe.

Time To Blow Your Mind!

So. Is this still not good enough? Is this not enough proof that there must be a God out there? Well here is some crazy statistics which will make your brain explode! We all know Albert Einstein. Father of science. He managed to essentially prove that there is a God through a simple formula. E=MC^2. Yes, its that formula. I know that you know it. But i doubt you ever thought it would be so important. This formula can destroy or create an infinite amount of life in a matter of seconds! It was used to create the atom, and in a larger proportion, the atom bomb. So, we are gonna use this formula to calculate the energy it would require to create the universe! So the first step is to add all of the mass on earth, with the entire mass of every other planet in all 100 billion galaxies, each with 100billion stars. Second, we must multiply the matter by the speed of light. Third, we need to square that number. So a 100 pound human holds the force of 45,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs. Now take that, and assuming it is an average, multiply it by the rest of the 6.5 billion people on earth. Now add in the force of the mountain, trees, plants, anim,als, currents and everything else on earth.We get that the earth's mass is around 6 octillion! Or in other words, 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atomic bombs worth of force are contained on just the earth itself! Now put that in proportion to the rest of the universe!!!! Its unfathomable how ridiculous that is! That God was able to create it all! And all we say is "God is great", and "God is good"! HA! I think we need to step it up a notch! He deserves better than we impudent humans! Now this proves Gods existance, because of the law of conservation of mass. Mass cannot be destroyed or created. Only changed. Which means that there has to be a superior being to create it. Otherwise we wouldnt be here. Its funny because after the creation of this formula, Einstein actually became a christian.
