Can Good Science Embrace Bad Theory?

The Oxford Dictionary defines science as "a branch of study ... concerned either with a body of demonstrated truths or with observed facts systematically classified... under general laws, and which includes trustworthy methods for the discovery of new truth within its own domain."

G. G. Simpson, a leading evolutionist, has said: "It is inherent in any definition of science that statements that cannot be checked by observation are not really about anything... or at the very least, they are not science.

True Science Is:
  • Observable
  • Demonstrable
  • Repeatable

Does Science Contradict the Bible?

Some feel that God's Word and His world are separate and could conflict in apparent information.  However, keep in mind that the Word of God speaks without apology about the origin and operation of the natural world.  The straightforward narrative of creation was approved by Jesus Christ and by the apostles who wrote the New Testament.  We must be careful with what we accept as science.  True science will not contradict the Bible.

Science Mysteries

Despite all the work that has been done in all the science disciplines, there are major enduring problems.
What is electricity?
What is light?
What is gravity?
Why do these phenomena behave so consistently? Some features of these things are known but not the basic "why" behind them.

Cautions for Science

Because there are so many disciplines of scientific study, being an authority in more than one realm is impossible for most men. Scientists are real people, they have the same human weaknesses and biases as non-scientists.  Scientist who wish to be credible must be cautious not to make broad declarations on issues of religion or human spiritual matters in the name of science.  When scientist do say things about origins, supernatural powers and spiritual things, you should be careful to examine and challenge them.  Theories are not facts!

A Proven Hoax: Accepted for  a Century as Science...

Embryonic recapitulation (the theory that human embryos develop by evolutionary stages of animal ancestry)
(for more on Embryonic recapitulation click on the words above to go to Answers in Genesis's article on" Embryonic recapitulation")

What is a Theory?

The average person may suppose a theory is like a hunch or a guess, but scientists regard theories as accepted principles or concepts that spawn research to explain natural phenomenon.

Have Scientists 
Been Proven Wrong Before?

False ideas have commonly been promoted by scientists of past generations only to be discarded by their descendants.

  • The geocentric theory of astronomy.

  • The idea that bloodletting is an appropriate medical procedure for reducing fever.

  • Phlogiston was believed by 17th and 18th century scientists to be the magical ingredient of all combustible things that enabled them to burn.  However, French chemist, Lavoisier, showed that oxygen was the key for fire (rapid oxidation) to burn.
