Will Science Survive the 21st Century?

30 years ago, my answer would have been a quick, “of course!” Science to me was mankind’s highest goal and aspiration.- full of honesty and integrity, hope and wisdom. People involved in science were my heros, dedicated to lifting mankind from ignorance and curing all our diseases. So, when i was accepted into college, i wanted to learn all i could about the sciences. I even joined the biology club and went on all sorts of trips with the other science student and the profs. All the while the head of the bio department was hitting up on the anthropology prof. Both were already married and so the image of science changed suddenly. I learned later after my graduation that that same head of the biology department barricaded himself into one of the campus buildings and held police at bay for hours with a shotgun.

Some even claimed that there was no God, which scared the begeebers outta me! In fact, as time went on, i…

Yet, this is the greatest assumption of modern science and it’s greatest failure. Intelligent design “theory” smacks down “science” reveals it’s real essence. Modern science has become a substitute for faith. If you have a problem with ID, you NEED science as a coping mechanism. ID is to biology, what quantum theory is to physics. Both are acknowledgements that man’s theories at their very best are ultra simplistic. Heb 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (NIV) Do you want to…
