Science Falsely So Called

1 Timothy 6:20-21

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. {The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.

Yesterday I showed you with deductive logic that modern science and truth are in opposition against one another. They are as different as light and dark, black and white, good and evil. This may make many of you feel uncomfortable, perhaps even uneasy, at the thought that the source of life extending medicine and miraculous technology has a sinister dual nature, like that of a Pied Piper of Hamelin leading millions of children to torment in hell. As such I thought that it would be a good idea to give a solid scriptural basis for this idea. Timothy was well aware that, under the guise of science (being synonymous with wisdom and knowledge) there would be people who would seek to weaken doctrine and destroy the church.

The Holy Spirit has not allowed this to happen, though Timothy’s warning is appropriate.

Science is essentially so ubiquitous now that most people don’t understand it at all, but they believe it anyway. This is a very dangerous situation. The key is to be able to discern what is real practical science, such as the understanding of physics that is necessary to build an iPhone, versus what is theoretical science, which wants you to believe that the earth is 4.6 billions of years old and humans are descended from replicating molecules. It takes some understanding of concepts, but also an understanding of nuance, and how to apply these concepts.

One of the best examples is the way that the theory of evolution has been used to divide between the science and faith communities.

This is a classic case of misdirection. The problem is not actually evolution. The major error here is that there can’t be a divide between science and faith, because science requires faith. It turns out that a lot of people have a real problem with this. I have identified what I believe are the 5 major pillars in the theoretical foundation of modern science, the 5 core beliefs, they are all assumptions:

  1. The causal relationship between mass and gravity
  2. Heliocentricity
  3. Stars are distant suns
  4. Radioisotopes have always decayed at a constant rate
  5. The evolutionary origin of humanity

I have gone to great lengths to illustrate that all 5 of these assumptions are leaps of faith. However, many of the people with whom I am interacting claim that they don’t believe these things, which is to say that belief in them is not necessary. They just are. They believe that science has disproved God, but that they don’t have to believe in science for this to be possible. So we have a generation of science believers who have no idea that science is based on assumptions. As such, calling them science believers is actually giving them too much credit. Science is now an idol that they worship because they have been told that it has solved all of these silly things like God. Truly they are science worshipers. I’ll go a step further and say that they are scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISW). They are the ideological progeny of the likes of Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye and Neil Degrasse Tyson. They worship Dawkins/Nye/Tyson Science

DNT Science.

Science falsely so-called.

Atheist are much the same. I have heard the claim that Atheist have no beliefs, but since they believe in science that can’t possibly be true.

However, I am not anti science. I don’t hate science, I love it. I can show you how the very same evidence, source material and data harmonizes perfectly with the truth of the Bible. There is such a thing as true science. It shouldn’t be necessary to clarify it as true science, but because science long ago fell into the hands of evil people who used it to deny God, the distinction is now necessary. You’ve heard of Science Fiction. The Bible teaches us Science Truth.
