Today’s word for July 21, 2011


He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.
You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.
Psalms 104:5-6

Scientific and technological advances are difficult to ignore. Every day a new technology application is developed to improve our health or our wellbeing. Millions of Euros and Dollars are spent daily on scientific research and companies that engage in this research generate large fortunes for their stockholders. Hence, science has a reputation as a generator of well-being and progress to the point that science has replaced faith in many areas of knowledge. While the areas of application are different, many have used science to discredit faith. It is like an expert in History of the French Revolution questioning the advances in Cell Physiology and vice versa. Science deals with what can be seen and what can be felt and measured. Faith deals with things that cannot be seen and cannot be measured physically. At some points these two study areas overlap and that is where the most heated arguments arise between believers and scientists. Both try to claim that little common ground for themselves.

We can find one of these points of overlap in the study of the origins of the universe, life and our planet. The vast majority of scientists have rejected a priori the option that God’s hand has intervened in the creation process of all we can see today. Arrogantly they raise and wield their ever-changing theories, which they take for truth though most of them have proved to be defective. When this happens, they simply create a new theory to replace the one that has failed, which serves to keep them occupied until the new theory is also found to be false. The word of God on the other hand is consistent and reliable. God’s promises are true and need not be exchanged for new promises. God is faithful and his word is trustworthy. This is something that science will never achieve. To God alone be the glory!
