Science and God by KendallNS Science and God by KendallNS
WE'VE GOT THE BEEEEEST OF BOTH WORLDS~!

XD

Seriously, why does everyone seem to believe that Christians don't believe in science? Or evolution for that matter? Here's a quick explanation for Christians: God's timeless, therefore 7 days to him could be millions upon billions of years for us. The story of 7 days is just another translation.

Understandable? If yes, yay! If no, rootie poo shame on you, you weren't paying enough attention.

Big Bang = let there be light

When there is a bang from a bomb or something it always starts out with some flash of light so to me when God said let there be light Big Bang happened

I know I'm a bit late to the party. But I feel I gotta say this. 
Our friend Istamp down there claims that miracles by Jesus are impossible. But here's the thing. If there really is a creator god who created the universe, surely it wouldn't be difficult for him to rearrange parts of it when he wanted to?

I wonder if the whole rule of one earthly day is a thousand heavenly ones had any rule of play in this? Like, maybe there was a big bang?

Surely there are flaws in this, and surely I am not the only who would have thought of this.

Anyway, as you can already tell, I am a Protestant, and my dream is to become a zoologist or marine biologist. So you can imagine that I enjoy science.

My theory of our involvement of Evolution and the Garden of Eden:
We were once very intelligent beings, who had great communications with beings from different worlds and realms. Once we were tempted and fell, we lost our great understanding, therefore, we must work and dedicate ourselves to God. When he returns, we shall see and understand. Science explains our physical realm, which has connections to other dimensions even. Our blood is linked back to one common female ancestor (who I consider Eve).

I don't get why some of my fellow Christians are so angry at evolutionists and the like. Science doesn't delve into the supernatural. It explains the physical. It can't be used to prove or disprove religion.

I'm a Christian and I absolutely love astronomy.
I just don't think the Bible is meant to be interpreted literally.
For example, the week in Genesis is a week on God's timescale, which for us could be 13.7 billion years, just like how a year for a human is 7 years for a dog.
I also believe in sentient aliens as well.
I just don't think there are any that are close enough to us for us to find them.
I'm not an extremely devout Christian, and my beliefs are looser and more flexible than those of someone who interprets literally.
If aliens DO find us, though, that'd be an entirely different pickle.

The problem here is that "Science" is a broad term. "Believing" in Science means you accept things like medicine and technology.
Evolution would fit the badge better.
Then again, i don't see a reason for people believing in God. There is no evidence for it (the bible doesn't count as evidence) and the only reason i can imagine is that they were brainwashed by their parents and/or friends and then can't let go.
Evolution has plenty of evidence, and so has most other scientific things.

I believe in God and science, but I don't believe in evolution because, if you put the facts together, it doesn't make sense. While I agree, 7 days could've been a million years, it would not make sense. For example, the sun gets hotter every year (I forget what it's called, but it's due to explosions inside the sun which keep it alive), so earth most likely would not be able to sustain life a million years ago, because it would be too cold. Plus, it says that God created everything in those 7 days, not that they created themselves.

There's a big problem with your argument.:no:

The sun is around four and a half billion years old, so it will have had plenty of time to get hot enough to sustain life one million years ago.

Also, you could say that God created life through the process of evolution (think of it like an artist creating a painting- first there's the sketching and so on, until the finished product is produced). ;)

I myself believe that there is some sort of conciousness that "controls" the laws of the universe. However, I believe that it is a part of the universe itself and doesn't really have a physical shape of its own (I suppose it'd be a bit like the electricity in your computer).

If the sun was hot enough to sustain life one million years ago (or several million years ago), then it would probably be too hot to sustain life today. Also, there really is no way to date how old the sun is. That being said, radiometric dating (I think that's what it's called, but I'm unsure) is the only way to get dates as large as millions of years old, but it is extremely unreliable.

In the Bible, it says that animals reproduce after their own kind. Dogs give birth to dogs, cats give birth to cats, etc. Also, if you know genetics even a small amount, you can tell that dogs actually lose information as they breed. For example, if a dog with medium fur had the genetics for both long and short fur (LS, let's say), and it had a pup with long fur (LL) then that pup, unless bred with a short-furred (SS) or medium-furred (LS) dog, would only produce long-furred pups (LL) after itself. They lose information, not gain it.

I don't believe that God has a physical shape either, but that He isn't part of the universe. In the Bible, it says He is omnipresent, so He's everywhere at once, but that's different.

There's another problem with that hypothesis, too.:hmm:

You see, the sun on average is one hundred and fifty kilometres away from the Earth and we are also protected by much of the sun's rays by our thick atmosphere. Therefore, we don't experience the full heat of the sun (if we did, we'd be more like Mercury or Venus).

Of course organisms reproduce offspring of their own species; but evolution isn't entirely based on interbreeding. Rather, it's based more on genetic mutations based on changes in the environment. The species may lose information; but that is only because it is not necessary for their survival and is replaced by the new information created by the mutation. ;)

We should probably stop this conversation soon, or else I'll start getting angry and just say you're stupid or something. I do that sometimes.

Over one hundred years ago, the state of Florida could get to temperatures as low as -2 degrees. It now rarely goes below 30, even in winter. Isn't this proof enough that the earth is affected by the earth's ever-growing heat? Also, if the earth has such thick atmosphere, then wouldn't that keep the heat required to survive on earth a million years ago out?

I never said anything about interbreeding. Darwin pieced together the theory that the little differences in animals, as they bred, over millions of years, would add up to create big differences. In actuality, it adds up to nothing. While animals will mutate sometimes, they rarely breed, if I'm remembering correctly. It's like how many times mutt dogs will be born fertile.

I understand that the Earth can be affected dramatically by this heat; but the temperature changes in Florida (and other parts of the world) may easily be at least partially down to mankind. An example of this could be an increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, partly due to fossil fuels used in vehicles and so on. This carbon dioxide creates holes in the o-zone layer, allowing more heat from the sun to penetrate our planet.

In the same way that the atmosphere keeps out a lot of the sun's heat, it also lets in enough heat to sustain life.

Also, life itself can exist in VERY extreme conditions, provided they have the things required for survival (food, water, air and so on).

I must have misread that bit, then.^^; But if you don't wish to change your views, I don't intend to force you to change them; that would just be rude! ;)

The word "day" can be interpreted to mean "that period of time". Like "In Abe Lincoln's day", which doesn't mean Abe Lincoln was alive for exactly one day. Wait, you're blatantly trolling...
