Can God really be explained by Science?

One of my sisters was given homework to write a report on The Theory of Evolution. I offered to aid in the research. I wondered what would become of such an endeavor to answer the questions while being objective in my own beliefs. We would study the lives of men such men as Charles Darwin whose name in many Christians opinion is synonymous with the Anti-Christ.

The case for God is typically debated by Scientist due to the fact they cannot prove through human research that such a one exists. Before I get too far into this article, let us first look at how Science is defined.

Science is defined as the systematic and logical approach to studying how things work in the universe. According to Merriam-Webster, the word “science” is known to come from the Latin word “Scientia” which is knowledge based on reproducible and demonstrable data. Science aims for measurable results through exhaustive testing and defined analysis. Science is based on fact, not opinion or preferences.

The process of science is designed to challenge ideas through research. Some studies have shown that one important aspect of Science is that it focuses only on the natural world; thereby anything considered supernatural does not fit into the definition of science. Science believes there is an explanation for all miracles and such things do not really exist; they have conclusions that have yet to be discovered.

Science does not recognize creation. The Big Bang Theory is Scientist explanation at the beginning of all things. The “The Big Bang Theory” as by its own definition is a theory. When we look deeper into the word “Theory,” it means supposition, an idea or a way to explain a set of facts.

Our Public Schools curriculum includes two models of Scientific Evidence. One being the Creation Model and the other of course being the Evolution Model. The Creation Model must be taught strictly from the science, and not religious views.

With that in mind, we will take each and approach it from this level of Science. This is written within your child’s curricula of study.

THE SCIENTIFIC MODEL:

  1. The Solar System and the Universe emerged from natural processes
  2. Life emerges from non-life by natural process
  3. All present kinds emerged from similar earlier kinds
  4. Mutation and natural selection have brought about the emergence of present complex kinds from a simple primordial organism
  5. Both Man and apes emerged from a common ancestor
  6. The earth’s geologic features were fashioned largely by slow, gradual processes, with infrequent catastrophic events restricted to a local scale (uniformitarianism)

THE CREATION MODEL:

  1. The universe and the Solar system were suddenly created
  2. Life was suddenly created
  3. All present living kinds of animals and plants have remained fixed since creation, other than extinctions, and genetic variation in originally created kinds has only occurred within narrow limits
  4. Mutation and natural selection are insufficient to have brought about any emergence of present living kinds from a simple primordial organism
  5. Mutation and natural selection are insufficient to have brought about any emergence of present living kinds from a simple primordial organism
  6. Man and apes have a separate ancestry
  7. The earth’s geologic features appear to have been fashioned largely by rapid, catastrophic processes that affected the earth on a global and regional scale (catastrophism)
  8. The inception of the earth and of living kinds may have been relatively recent

The case for science includes facts and hypothesis generated over time; while some may still be a bit doubtful; Scientists are emerging with new thinking as to how all life began i.e. life emerging from non-life or unknown life.

The Bible states, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” (Genesis 1:1-3).

Science itself states all evolution and hypothesis must be done through observation. No one has ever seen an ape evolve into a man. There is no proof. There was that one time, I thought I saw a man become an ape. I digress. Astronomers know that stars are constantly being recreated by some power, some “unknown” force.

While Christians and non-Christians debate over the issue on how life and all creation came into existence, one thing is certain; the beginning had to begin by some form of power that was greater than what we see. Science has not been able to explain what precluded the Big Bang Theory, nor can it explain the heartbeat of life or how the mind processes, analyzes and processes data.

Although science has made tremendous strides in medicine, it is yet to be able to explain how an atom is formed. Science cannot explain how the stars continue to align themselves with the universe. Science does not know how the moon and sun know to agree to work in harmony. Science cannot explain how each species know how to gather its own food and to protect its young.

Science does not know how to explain why the mother’s breast milk is praised by a newborn, and how mothers know when a child is in trouble. Science cannot explain the sensation of love and how the heart knows how to love.

Science has come a long way in its ability to understand how to create an artificial heart and to perform a heart transplant, however it has no idea as to how to make that heart be filled with passion and drive.

Ah, wonderful science how well you do in your research, analysis, and hypothesis; yet you do not know how to truly bring the body back into divine alignment through faith and prayer.

Being a Christian and teaching the Creation Model is truly the best of all sciences. It is observed through everyday living, studied by those who dare believe and experienced both far and near, by anyone who will have mustard seed faith. Science belongs to God and all life is traced right back to the Father of Life, and there is no doubt Science will continue until it too will say truly the presence of the Lord is in this place!

During my research, I came across an assessment in the Huffington Post on the views of a few Scientist.

Galileo “I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason, and intellect has intended us to forego their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them. He would not require us to deny sense and reason in physical matters which are set before our eyes and minds by direct experience or necessary demonstrations.”

Sir Francis Bacon “God never wrought miracle to convince atheism, because his ordinary works convince it. It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion. For while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them, confederate and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity.”

Charles Darwin “I may say that the impossibility of conceiving that this grand and wondrous universe, with our conscious selves, arose through chance, seems to me the chief argument for the existence of God; but whether this is an argument of real value, I have never been able to decide. I am aware that if we admit a first cause, the mind still craves to know whence it came and how it arose. Nor can I overlook the difficulty from the immense amount of suffering through the world. I am, also, induced to defer to a certain extent to the judgment of the many able men who have fully believed in God; but here again, I see how poor an argument this is. The safest conclusion seems to be that the whole subject is beyond the scope of man’s intellect, but man can do his duty.”

Maria Mitchell “Scientific investigations, pushed on and on, will reveal new ways in which God works, and bring us deeper revelations of the wholly unknown.”

Madam Mari Curie “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

Albert Einstein “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the Mysterious — the knowledge of the existence of something unfathomable to us, the manifestation of the most profound reason coupled with the most brilliant beauty. I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, or who has a will of the kind we experience in ourselves. I am satisfied with the mystery of life’s eternity and with the awareness of — and glimpse into — the marvelous construction of the existing world together with the steadfast determination to comprehend a portion, be it ever so tiny, of the reason that manifests itself in nature. This is the basics of cosmic religiosity, and it appears to me that the most important function of art and science is to awaken this feeling among the receptive and keep it alive.”

Carl Sagan “Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual.”

Stephen Hawking, a professed atheist “Before we understood science, it was natural to believe that God created the universe, but now science offers a more convincing explanation.”

Francis Collins (My personal favorite) “I have found there is a wonderful harmony in the complementary truths of science and faith. The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. God can be found in the cathedral or in the laboratory. By investigating God’s majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship.”

Science can never explain how you really got those blue eyes, that brown skin, blond hair, those curvy hips or round lips, without going back to the source of life.

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:26-28)

Summary:

With all due respect; Science at its best, is the study of God. It is far easier to see the existence of God; then to prove His absence, no doubt
