“Science” is just a word at one level. A word that originally meant, “knowledge” and certainly a quest for knowledge in a responsible way is desirable. But, “science” as it has become in it’s present institutionalized form, is very anti-christian. Evolutionism has become the prevalent religion and is the only faith that is tolerated within it’s ranks. To openly question evolutionism can mean instant demotion or worse for the professional “scientist”. So, you must either buy into their spontaneous generation “primordial soup” creation story or be like Mr. Dawkins and replace the actual Creator with some form of “alien” bringing the “seeds” of life from a distant star, what have you to be a “real scientist”. Now, doesn’t that really warm your heart! Cough!!
As a Christian, I know that everything that is against the teaching of Jesus of the Bible, will come to nothing eventually. There will be a day when we will look back on “science” as another failed human endeavor. “Science” is just another false “savior” a bogus hope, a waste of time and energy. I can choose to avoid it’s trappings and make a living being more productive doing just about anything else. Some Christians may be able or willing to survive in such a stifling environment, but what’s the point?
My advice is to get out of it while you can and find a way to make a more honest living. For those of us who love studying nature and the cosmos, a better approach is to toss science and boldly forge a new way to go about it that is friendly to our Creator and call it, “Creation Studies” or something that distances us from “science” and all it’s evolutionism, arrogance and pride.
The last thing “creation studies” need is an endorsement from “science”. The respectability of “science” is completely misplaced anyway. Seriously!
I recommend that all Christian education drop the “science” classes and replace them with “creation studies”. We don’t need any association with such an outspoken anti-christian force in our society. Why should we care what they think of us?
Real “higher education” brings us closer to our Creator, not farther away!
