Leap of Unfaith

Science, Thoughts
There is an underlying current in some parts of the science world that Bible-believing Christians are not using our brains.  That we have turned off our curiosity.  That we ignore science and follow ancient myths.  We are accused of taking a "leap of faith" into the unknown by believing the Bible is true rather than following where science leads. I see it as exactly the other way around.  The secular scientists are taking the leaps of faith - or should I say leaps of unfaith, since these leaps ignore the Creator and His infusion of order, design, and purpose into the universe.  Let me give you an example. We have talked at some length about the super-squished time line of the Big Bang theory.  In the first billionth of a…

Tell Me Why

Science, Thoughts
We now have a robust theory (the Big Bang) for the origin of the universe.  And we also have a scientific model for how it has progressed since.  But no matter how deep we drill down into our science world, we are missing the answer to one giant question:  Why?  Why is the universe here?  Why are you and I here?  Why did things develop this way? It is interesting to me that while science may not know the why, scientists do know that something very special is happening here.  Let's start by looking at one of the forces that was created and active in that first billionth of a second of the universe's existence; the force of gravity. Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and popular figure in…

The Search for Earth 2.0

Science, Thoughts
With the Big Bang Theory in their pocket and a new array of instruments at their disposal, astronomers are hot on the trail of looking for Earth 2.0; an Earth-mass planet orbiting a Sun-like star at a distance similar to Earth's orbit.  Or, to put it another way, the search is on for a rocky planet in a potentially habitable zone?  Will they find another Earth? I don't know.  I happen to think that we inhabit a unique place in the universe created by God as a dwelling place for mankind.  But my faith would not be shaken if Earth 2.0 exists.  What is more interesting to me is how many unique and life-giving features of our present Earth keep popping up during our search for life on other planets.  What we are discovering is…
