Evolution versus Creationism
Popular Misunderstanding of Christians' use of Science is a Deception
It is a distortion created by people who hate God to say, "Christians reject evolution and science." That is how this untruth circulates. In fact, the greatest scientists have often believed in God: Isaac Newton wrote three times as much about God as he ever did about science. Einstein also believed in God, despite recent efforts of atheists to repaint him as an atheist. God blesses those who honor him! Further, Christians (those who have not compromised in order to bend a knee to the opinions of man) believe that the world was created in 6 literal days of a day and a night each. (Yes, that is what scripture records!) We do believe in microevolution- the subtle adaptation of God's creation in order to preserve the created type. We do not believe that rocks become living beings by chance and time.
Now, the scientific process belongs to reason and philosophical principles. Problem, Observation, hypothesis, experiment, conclusion (& publish depending on which school of thought you are in) comprise the scientific process. Most who reject God on the basis of evolution have NOT done any reasoning to conclude their position.
Typically, the atheist does not consider, logically and without emotion, the facts of history and the testimony of believers, when they record their observations. This nature of the human animal is known in the study of psychology. When someone is front-loaded (by text books, for example, which promote Darwin in every topic from English Literature to Statistics to Finance) they tend to reject contrary evidence. This can be associated with confirmation bias and also cognitive dissonance.
True Science According to Facts
A true scientist challenges the raw data. A solidly trained philosopher will want to see each premise. He wants to see the data and check the premises, set up and analysis of correlations and relationships.
In mathematics, each new law is introduced with a "proof", a series of premises and the ultimate conclusion.
Somehow, these laws of thought and logic escape atheists. They call Darwinian macro-evolution a "law" when it has never been proved. Properly, macroevolution as Darwin promoted it (after heavy pressure from a group of other men). In fact, the raw data all point to two conclusions that atheists must reject to preserve their stance that the Bible is "a bunch of lies fabricated in the 3rd century" and that Almighty God is a "flying spaghetti monster." These conclusions are this: The earth is no older than about 6,000 years. And, approximately 4,000 years ago, a great flood covered the earth and buried cities, giant reptiles, forests, fish, shelled creatures, and even flying animals.
Evolution of the Nose According to Evolutionists
Science Supports Christianity, not Atheism
If they look in scientific, critical methods of reason, they will see a hard thing: that they have been deluded by a major set of deceptions. They find that Lucy, Piltdown Man, and other famous intermediaries allegedly linking ape to man were fabrications created by anthropologists and others who simply needed a find – anything – in order to keep their good paying positions in research, in the field, or in the museum.
The truth is, although some love to present it opposite to reality, is that science and Christianity go together well. It is atheism and science which are at odds. The pseudo-science in which most atheists blindly place their faith is a collection of already-disproven lies and wild, leaping, illogical extrapolations and non-sequiturs.
