“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

1.3 Science vs. The Bible

(or Evolution vs. the Bible)

Let God be found true, though every man be found a liar. – Romans 3:4

You Have Been Brainwashed. Before we can continue further, we must deal with some of the false teachings of man which are masquerading as “science”– for many people are mistakenly under the impression that science has disproven the Bible, because that is what they have been taught and heard their entire life. This claim has become a deafening onslaught of propaganda and brainwashing (and that’s exactly what it is!), repeated often and continuously, causing many to doubt the Bible, and in particular, to doubt the very first book of the Bible called Genesis, and even more specifically, the very first sentence(s) of Genesis.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that just the opposite is actually true – every advancement and discovery in science (and in other fields such as archaeology) has in fact served to further prove that the Bible is indeed true! It is sad today to see the brainwashing that is done since the time we are wee infants in the educational system; we are brainwashed to be prejudiced against God from our earliest cognizant development moments and educational levels. Man sure can be a strange and illogical creature; for he will endlessly chase after myths and nonsense like looking for the fabled “Fountain of Youth” or trying to find the secret to eternal life from science, when all he has to do is look to God who gives eternal life freely to all that seek Him!

What you need to realize is that the earth is in the middle of a raging war; no, I’m not talking about the endless wars waged by man which cause so much suffering, but we are in a spiritual war, with the forces of God and good on one side and evil on the other side, led by Satan and his demons and men who do his work (this is discussed more in the next chapter). For now, understand that this war is not a physical war fought with guns and knives and swords, but a spiritual war, fought with the tools outlined in Scripture (lies, false teachings and deceptions). So, do not be deceived, we battle against these evil spiritual forces in high places who do not want you to receive eternal life; in fact, they are set against you, trying to get you to end in eternal death, for they oppose all that is good and of God.

Their very first line of defense is to get you to doubt the Bible! They know that if they stop you at that point, you won’t go any further! One major retailer even placed their Bibles in the fiction section of books – I kid you not! That’s how determined they are to convince you that the Bible is not true. The second greatest weapon they use against you is false teachings – both from the secular God-denying world and also from within the church.

Friend, please realize that all your life you have been the victim of anti-God brainwashing, propaganda and lies/distractions of man; they are designed to lead you away from God, away from Christ, and away from eternal life! The knowledge of the truth given in Scripture, which I give to you in this book, is essential in countering the false teachings. That is why I’m so adamant in this book about calling out and identifying these false teachings for you.

Many of these false teachings appear in the form of “science” and “theories” of man. You are told that these “theories” are in fact true and proven by scientifically measured facts, when they are instead but mere illusions and deceptions of man brought to you by the secular world and its institutions. For example, you have been taught, and very likely believe, that all of the following are true and established facts of science:

  • Doesn’t evolution disprove the Bible? (or how can the seven (7) literal days of creation in the book of Genesis possibly be true?)
  • What about the dinosaurs, don’t they disprove the Bible? (and didn’t an asteroid kill them off millions of years ago?)
  • Don’t fossils prove millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Doesn’t carbon-dating prove millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Don’t tree growth rings prove millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Don’t erosion prove millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Doesn’t natural selection disprove the Bible?
  • Doesn’t science prove that there were many “ice ages” over millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Doesn’t light red-shift prove millions of years and disprove the Bible?
  • Don’t animals having sharp teeth prove disprove the Bible?
  • Doesn’t the “Big-Bang Theory” disprove the Bible?
  • Noah’s flood is just a myth, isn’t a worldwide flood impossible?

However, the answer to these and many other commonly accepted (without challenge) scientific questions is a resounding: no! In particular, regarding evolution again – by their very own admission, evolutionary “scientists” acknowledge and admit that their own “theory” cannot explain where life first came from! Only the Bible gives us the answer. Nonetheless, the lies and cries of “millions of years” continues to emanate loudly and often, so you must be continually on guard for it.

As you see from the headline verse to this chapter, the truth is actually opposite to what man claims; in fact, the truth (and rule) is that if something man says disagrees with or contradicts the Bible, then it is man who is wrong, not the Bible! While science can help us understand the physical world through its theories and measurements, it tells us absolutely nothing whatsoever about the spiritual world, about God, angels, heaven and hell, or even life and death. Only the Bible tells us truth in such matters.

One teaching in particular, the “Theory of Evolution” (along with its attendant theories of “millions/billions of years” for earth history), is so widespread, popular, believed by many and shouted from the rooftops in staggering volume day and night from every single media outlet on the planet that you have been exposed to this teaching since you were an infant and may not even realize it is just a “theory” of man! This false teaching is front and center as you encounter these first three chapters about God’s creation; in effect, the subject of science vs. the Bible is commonly manifest as the particular argument of creation vs. evolution.

I really do know and empathize with what you’re experiencing if you doubt there is a God, and that His initial Creation was good, pure, without sin, suffering and death. As a scientist myself (physics), I also struggled mightily with these questions about evolution, the age of the earth, etc. – how could it all be possibly created by a God, in a mere literal seven (7) days? How could all the “facts” of evolution and millions of years be wrong? I had to sort through hundreds of my own questions and doubts on these matters before I could come to believe that there really is a God, and that He is good and loving! I mean, how can “science” be wrong? And believe me, when I question and doubt something, I do it like the best of them. When I have questions, there are literally hundreds and hundreds to be answered! So, I am speaking from personal experience on this subject.

The subject of science vs. the Bible is such a vast area that I can only highlight some of the key areas in this book; but know that there are many good and knowledgeable articles, studies, and research on this subject written by very competent, highly trained and respected Christian scientists and scholars who have studied mountains of evidence and data which show clearly that science has not disproven the Bible. Many scientists, who are also Christians, have studies and research that atheistic scientists (and their sponsoring institutions) just don’t like, want to hear, or want you to hear. So that information is suppressed (or ignored) in schools or discredited by atheistic groups, so the information can be harder to find.

There isn’t space here to refute all these theories of man, presented as scientific “facts,” but I encourage you to consult some of the reference materials listed at the end of this book. Also, our website lists many questions and answers (Q&A) in the area of science vs. the Bible, with links to articles, papers, studies and research. The website Q&A covers many of the most common stumbling blocks and false teachings of man in the area of science that cause disbelief.

But to find truth, are you:

  • Prepared to be open-minded and consider new information? Are you really ready to objectively evaluate factual information and to consider that you have been lied to (and brainwashed) for so many years? Are you really open to considering that the biblical view on science and creation (and other matters) is indeed accurate?
  • Willing to concede that there even is a God? The modern and so-called enlightened man thinks that his science is the final authority and basis for all understanding and justification, but that simply isn’t the case. Even the ancient Greeks with all of their sophistication and knowledge believed in a God, they just didn’t know “which” God, so the Apostle Paul pointed them in the correct direction:

So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” – Acts 17:22-31

  • Willing to challenge what you hear? Are you simply accepting the word of man without challenging it? Are you believing anything you hear if it comes from someone in a nice suit, with an intimidating title or who has lots of important looking initials placed before or after their name? Or worse, are you accepting as truth what you read on social media and the Internet these days? Wayne Jackson, who has written for and edited the Christian Courier since its inception in 1965, writes regarding the general public reaction to the “Jesus Bones” so-called “science” a few years ago: [1]

Those Bogus “Jesus Bones”

Society has just been treated to the almost-yearly attempt of entertainment exploiters, who seek to line their pockets with “filthy lucre” by hitching a ride on the reputation of Jesus Christ.

It would be a laughable, though stupid enterprise, were it not for the fact that so many gullible souls ingest any trash that purports to have the endorsement of “science.” Never has the reputation of “science” been so low.

There is nothing new that is “scientifically credible” in this story. The knowledge of these “bones” has been around for more than a quarter of a century — scarcely raising an eyebrow.

When you stop listening to the theories, myths, traditions and fables of man, and start to seek knowledge, wisdom and truth from the Lord via His Word, then you will start to get real wisdom and knowledge; and you will be blessed with understanding and start to see the lies and deceptions of man clearly. Until you do that however, you will simply keep chasing more theories, myths and fables of man. I know it sounds harsh reading that, but it’s the truth! This is why Scripture says, “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge [and wisdom].”  

I must confess also to being gullible by formerly believing much of this fake science, but now I know the truth – and here is the important part: I no longer sit in ignorance believing the nonsense of man. I’ve seen the change in myself after I realized that man isn’t the ultimate authority on matters – the Lord is. And when you accept that God (not man) has truth, a light goes off and you have a “wow, what I’ve been taught all my life isn’t so much proven by science after all” moment! You will then realize that on these essential matters, God is truth, and men are not. Are you ready to trust God’s wisdom on these essential and eternal matters, over man’s? It is written: “There is a way which seems right to a man [his notions, myths, theories, opinions, among other things…], but its end is the way of death.” God and His Word and His Wisdom lead to life; trust in God’s holy Word.

Know that God is not a God of confusion, but of logic, reason and understanding. The Bible even tells us that wisdom, God’s wisdom, was around before the world existed, and it is by that very wisdom that He created this world we now live in. Yes, even the laws of nature were created from God’s wisdom:

“The Lord possessed me [wisdom] at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
“From everlasting I was established,
From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.
“When there were no depths I was brought forth,
When there were no springs abounding with water.
“Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills I was brought forth;
While He had not yet made the earth and the fields,
Nor the first dust of the world.
“When He established the heavens, I was there,
When He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep,
When He made firm the skies above,
When the springs of the deep became fixed,
When He set for the sea its boundary
So that the water would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth;
Then I was beside Him, as a master workman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
Rejoicing in the world, His earth,
And having my delight in the sons of men.” – Proverbs 8:22-31

In fact, He upholds this very universe and all things in it by His Word; and remember that it was God who created science in the first place! He created the things that we know today as the laws of mathematics, the laws of physics, the laws of thermodynamics, the laws of logic, etc. from of His wisdom. So, God does not ask us to discard logic and reasoning when evaluating research and science, whether it be for, or against, the Bible. God gave us logic and reasoning to use wisely, but we must allow Him to direct us to truth. Are we ready to be led by God into truth, wisdom and understanding? Are we humble enough to be taught and receive truth, even when we think we know better, and may even think we know more than God Himself?

The book of Job is most enlightening on this matter; I’ve included a few chapters from it in the verses below. They show the Lord really laying it on Job thick and heavy, and squarely putting him back in his place again for thinking he was wiser than God. The Lord showed him that it was He who created, ordered, and maintains all things; and notice that God used matters of Creation and the physical and natural world as examples of His wisdom. While lengthy, it’s worth reading in its entirety.

And finally, after reading some of the materials I have suggested (I sincerely hope you do), you will see that there are many valid interpretations of “scientific data” which agree with the Bible. You will find there is a whole body of scientific knowledge and facts that have been kept hidden from you. You may be wondering why you haven’t heard or been taught any of this stuff in school? I’ll let you ponder the answer to that…but I now see that much of what secular science and textbooks and colleges taught me was just “theories” and even brainwashing, all designed to make God opaquer and harder to find.

Please do realize that nearly all schools, colleges, and universities are run and controlled by extremely liberal secular God-denying entities, which are directly opposed to Christianity. The textbooks we are taught from are also under their control, being published by secular entities. Staggering! Astounding? …. Hard to believe? Impossible you say? But that’s a true statement, and the facts are out there; you can easily lookup the ownership of many of these institutions and also review their board members.

I mentioned this earlier, but it bears repeating and I want to close with it again: Do you know why they spend so much energy and effort to try to stop you from believing the very first sentences of the Bible? It is because they know that if you don’t believe the first sentence(s) of the Bible you won’t believe or read the rest. And make no mistake, the “they” are ungodly men who are under the control of Satan, the devil, whether they like to think so or not, and they do not want to see you coming to God, and His Christ, and to eternal life. This is the front line in the spiritual battle for human souls.

So please do not judge matters (and God) and form beliefs based only on what you see today in this fallen world and by what you have been taught as “science.” See truth; seek God’s wisdom. This is why the Lord has given us the Bible – so we know the truth, even when it’s hard to see in this fallen world. The Bible transcends both space and time. It is God’s Holy Word, given to guide those who will listen. For God is before all, created all, in all, through all, for all, after all and above all things!

In the next chapter, we get back on track presenting the gospel message and learn more about why God cursed creation – which explains the fallen world that we see today with sin, suffering, disease and death.

FALSE TEACHING(S) YOU WILL ENCOUNTER:

  • Atheism (there is no God)
  • The “Theory” of Evolution (and millions of years for earth history)
  • Satan (the Devil) is Just a Myth
  • Science Disproves the Bible

RELATED SCRIPTURE:

Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written,

That You may be justified in Your words,
And prevail when You are judged.
” – Romans 3:4

There is a way which seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. – Proverbs 14:12

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction. – Proverbs 1:7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. – Proverbs 3:5-7

For it is written,

I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.

Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. …

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. – 1 Corinthians 1:19-21,25

Listen to counsel and accept discipline,
That you may be wise the rest of your days. – Proverbs 19:20

How blessed is the man who finds wisdom
And the man who gains understanding. – Proverbs 3:13

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.” – 1 Corinthians 3:18-20

…for God is not a God of confusion. – 1 Corinthians 14:33

Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,

“Who is this that darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
“Now gird up your loins like a man,
And I will ask you, and you instruct Me!
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
Who set its measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the line on it?
“On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

“Or who enclosed the sea with doors
When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb;
When I made a cloud its garment
And thick darkness its swaddling band,
And I placed boundaries on it
And set a bolt and doors,
And I said, ‘Thus far you shall come, but no farther;
And here shall your proud waves stop’?

“Have you ever in your life commanded the morning,
And caused the dawn to know its place,
That it might take hold of the ends of the earth,
And the wicked be shaken out of it?
“It is changed like clay under the seal;
And they stand forth like a garment.
“From the wicked their light is withheld,
And the uplifted arm is broken.

“Have you entered into the springs of the sea
Or walked in the recesses of the deep?
“Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
“Have you understood the expanse of the earth?
Tell Me, if you know all this.

“Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
And darkness, where is its place,
That you may take it to its territory
And that you may discern the paths to its home?
“You know, for you were born then,
And the number of your days is great!
“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,
Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,
Which I have reserved for the time of distress,
For the day of war and battle?
“Where is the way that the light is divided,
Or the east wind scattered on the earth?

“Who has cleft a channel for the flood,
Or a way for the thunderbolt,
To bring rain on a land without people,
On a desert without a man in it,
To satisfy the waste and desolate land
And to make the seeds of grass to sprout?
“Has the rain a father?
Or who has begotten the drops of dew?
“From whose womb has come the ice?
And the frost of heaven, who has given it birth?
“Water becomes hard like stone,
And the surface of the deep is imprisoned.

“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades,
Or loose the cords of Orion?
“Can you lead forth a constellation in its season,
And guide the Bear with her satellites?
“Do you know the ordinances of the heavens,
Or fix their rule over the earth?

“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
So that an abundance of water will cover you?
“Can you send forth lightnings that they may go
And say to you, ‘Here we are’?
“Who has put wisdom in the innermost being
Or given understanding to the mind?
“Who can count the clouds by wisdom,
Or tip the water jars of the heavens,
When the dust hardens into a mass
And the clods stick together? “Can you hunt the prey for the lion,
Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,
When they crouch in their dens
And lie in wait in their lair?
“Who prepares for the raven its nourishment
When its young cry to God
And wander about without food? – Job 38:1-41

“Do you know the time the mountain goats give birth?
Do you observe the calving of the deer?
“Can you count the months they fulfill,
Or do you know the time they give birth?
“They kneel down, they bring forth their young,
They get rid of their labor pains.
“Their offspring become strong, they grow up in the open field;
They leave and do not return to them.

“Who sent out the wild donkey free?
And who loosed the bonds of the swift donkey,
To whom I gave the wilderness for a home
And the salt land for his dwelling place?
“He scorns the tumult of the city,
The shoutings of the driver he does not hear.
“He explores the mountains for his pasture
And searches after every green thing.
“Will the wild ox consent to serve you,
Or will he spend the night at your manger?
“Can you bind the wild ox in a furrow with ropes,
Or will he harrow the valleys after you?
“Will you trust him because his strength is great
And leave your labor to him?
“Will you have faith in him that he will return your grain
And gather it from your threshing floor?

“The ostriches’ wings flap joyously
With the pinion and plumage of love,
For she abandons her eggs to the earth
And warms them in the dust,
And she forgets that a foot may crush them,
Or that a wild beast may trample them.
“She treats her young cruelly, as if they were not hers;
Though her labor be in vain, she is unconcerned;
Because God has made her forget wisdom,
And has not given her a share of understanding.
“When she lifts herself on high,
She laughs at the horse and his rider.

“Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
“Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrible.
“He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength;
He goes out to meet the weapons.
“He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
And he does not turn back from the sword.
“The quiver rattles against him,
The flashing spear and javelin.
“With shaking and rage he races over the ground,
And he does not stand still at the voice of the trumpet.
“As often as the trumpet sounds he says, ‘Aha!’
And he scents the battle from afar,
And the thunder of the captains and the war cry.

“Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars,
Stretching his wings toward the south?
“Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up
And makes his nest on high?
“On the cliff he dwells and lodges,
Upon the rocky crag, an inaccessible place.

“From there he spies out food;
His eyes see it from afar.
“His young ones also suck up blood;
And where the slain are, there is he.” – Job 39:1-30

Then the Lord said to Job,

“Will the faultfinder contend with the Almighty?
Let him who reproves God answer it.”

Then Job answered the Lord and said,

“Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
“Once I have spoken, and I will not answer;
Even twice, and I will add nothing more.” – Job 40:1-5
