2 Science Greek- gnosis Latin- scientia Knowledge Knowledge so called Knowledge

3 Science Religion Nebraska Citizens for Science, Ed Pearlstein, physicist Science and Religion Compared Evidence, facts Reason and thought Virtue to question Arbitrary belief in some authority Virtue to believe w/o question Unwavering trust

4 Science Mean? Skewing the definition of science in my favor.. Evidence, facts Reason and thought Virtue to question Materialistic Blinded by bias toward evolution Arrogant- can know everything

5 Science Religion Nebraska Citizens for Science, Ed Pearlstein, physicist Science and Religion Compared Evidence, facts Reason and thought Virtue to question Arbitrary belief in some authority Virtue to believe w/o question Unwavering trust

6 Not God vs science… Science is about knowing anything that can be known. Scientific Method arbitrarily limits what science can know– limiting the knowledge of science to only those things that can be subjected to experimental method

7 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? Evolution God

8 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.)God created Evolution God

9 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.) (fossil record) God created After own kind Evolution God

10 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.) (fossil record) (meteor) God created After own kind Flood Evolution God

11 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.) (fossil record) (meteor) (ape-man) God created After own kind Flood Image of God Evolution God

12 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.) (fossil record) (meteor) (ape-man) ($4.50) God created After own kind Flood Image of God Eternal soul Evolution God

13 Science-- to know Origin of life? Dev. of life? Fate of dinosaurs? What is man? Value of man? Destiny of man? (spon.gen.) (fossil record) (meteor) (ape-man) ($4.50) (dust) God created After own kind Flood Image of God Eternal soul Return to God Evolution God

14 Dr. Arthur Keith, Scottish anatomist and anthropologist. He wrote the introduction to an earlier edition of Darwins Origin of Species. Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation which is unthinkable. Cited in Origins?, by BG Ranganathan, p.22

15 T.L. Moor, paleontologist The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone. (cited in Origins?, by BG Ranganathan, p. 22)

16 "It is therefore of immediate concern to both biologists and layman that Darwinism is under attack. The theory of life that undermined nineteenth-century religion has virtually become a religion itself and, in its turn, is being threatened by fresh ideas. The attacks are certainly not limited to B. Leith, The Descent of Darwin: A Handbook of Doubts about Darwinism (1982), p of 2

17 "those of the creationists and religious fundamentalists who deny Darwinism for political and moral reason. The main thrust of the criticism comes from within science itself. The doubts about Darwinism represent a political revolt from within rather than a siege from without. *B. Leith, The Descent of Darwin: A Handbook of Doubts about Darwinism (1982), p. 11.

18 "The hold of the evolutionary paradigm [theoretical system] is so powerful that it is an idea which is more like a principle of medieval astrology than a serious twentieth century scientific theory has become a reality for evolutionary biologists. Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (1985), p. 306 [Australian molecular biologist].

19 H. Lipson, physicist, professor, University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology : In fact, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion; almost all scientists have accepted it and many are prepared to bend their observations to fit in with it… To my mind, the theory does not stand up at all… 1 of 2

20 I know that [considering creation theory] is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it. (A Physicist Looks at Evolution, Physics Bulletin, 1980, p.138)

21 "What is it [evolution] based upon? Upon nothing whatever but faith, upon belief in the reality of the unseen belief in the fossils that cannot be produced, belief in the embryological experiments that refuse to come off. It is faith unjustified by works. Arthur N. Field.

22 "The irony is devastating. The main purpose of Darwinism was to drive every last trace of an incredible God from biology. But the theory replaces God with an even more incredible deity - omnipotent chance." T. Rosazak, "Unfinished Animal", 1975, p

23 "the assumption that evolution is an established fact of science is absolutely false. Thus, evolution can only be correctly labeled as a belief, a subjective philosophy of origins, the religion of many scientists." T. Rosazak, "Unfinished Animal", 1975, p

24 ArtistsPhilosophersPriests Evolution, what the theory CANNOT do without--- Biologists? Astrophysicists? Geologists? Archeologists? Astronomers? Chemists? Mathematicians? Evolution is more of a religion than many religions!

25 Rules about knowing things 1. Teaches something I dont like 2. Necessitates supernatural 3. Contradicts what I already believe 4. Conflicts with what is commonly believed Something is NOT untrue simply because it…
