Science |


There is an important difference between science as it was then, in the days of Newton, Boyle, and the other theist founders, when ongoing physical observation led to theories, which, after careful verification, became established laws—and science now, since Darwin, when wild tales are told and automatically accepted without essential verification. 

The theories postulated and carefully verified by science then became the foundational laws of science as we have it today: the laws of physics, chemistry, genetics, of motion, gasses, and so much else that today's science still relies upon. Why don't today's scientists continue to provide us with an increasing number of similar laws? It was because these laws were born of the belief that the God of the Bible exists, that He is the Creator of the physical universe and all life, and that He has established laws governing it—laws that man can discover, understand, and use to his betterment.

In stark contrast, science now is atheistic and built upon the contemptuous rejection of a personal Creator. As a consequence, we have a disorder in modern science that [men like Richard] Dawkins boast about—indeed, insist upon. Incredibly, they will not consent to any intelligence whatsoever being involved at any stage. Consider this statement by evolutionary biologist and geneticist  Richard Lewontin, typical of what atheists declare: "We are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive....[M]aterialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door (emphasis added)."   —Dave Hunt, excerpt taken from Cosmos, Creator, and Human Destiny: Answering Darwin, Dawkins, and the New Atheists, 2010
