Christian Life College
Each had a worldview which was insufficient to incubate the scientific method. Why?
Superstition and animism
“All is god and god is all”
Non-linear view of historyScience was Stillborn in Non-Biblical Civilizations
Their gods had power but not holiness
“All events are predestined and inscrutable”Science was Stillborn in Non-Biblical Civilizations
The Bible teaches:
“There is order in the universe.”
Science operates on this assumption, and it results in beliefs such as:
To argue against it, one must first believe one stands firmly in the world of experience
The world of experience is known to be real because it is orderly
Therefore, one must assume the order premise to try to disprove the order premise
There is a rational, orderly mind who created the universe
If God had not intended for us to know He is the source of the order in the universe, He would not have spoken to us
This is a good world that God has made
It is not the source of evil
It is not a plaything in the hands of God
It is not eternal: it had a beginning and it will have an end
God intended for humans to discover His creation
Our sensed perceptions can routinely be trusted
Like causes produce like effects
No effect is quantitatively or qualitatively greater than its cause
Everything God created has a purpose
Equipped with these truths, at the appropriate time in history the experimental method began to be employed
Christian Europe became the womb from which each of the basic scientific disciplines emerged.
Far from being an enemy of science, Christianity provided the necessary conditions for humanity that prior civilizations had lacked.
The motivation of the early scientists: “To think God’s thoughts after Him”
