Can Science and Creationism Coexist?
In his recently published book, Seven Days that Divide the World, John Lennox, Oxford maths professor, sets out to prove that Christians can believe in the theories of science and maintain the truth of Scripture.
"I think that sometimes people have been taught there are only two possibilities: Possibility one is that if you are being faithful to Scripture, you have to be a young earth creationist. Otherwise you're an evolutionist or a theistic evolutionist, and you're not faithful to Scripture," he explained to the Christian Post. "I don't think that is the case ... the whole point of the book is to explain that in some detail."
Lennox writes that all the wonders of the universe affirm the existence of the God of the Bible.
Most of what Lenox says is true, however, the scriptures doesn't always face the same direction as science. It will be insincere of us to try and merge the two together or reconcile them as saying the same things.
The scriptures is way far ahead of science. Any discrepancies between the scriptures and science are mainly due to lack of understanding and the blindness of the mind. Chanting the mantra: “Why Can We Be Friends?” smacks more of political correctness than seeking for truth. Truth be told, a lot of celebrity scientists have a lot on their agendas/minds that are different from discovering the truth about the universe or human existence. Same with some preachers/pastors. Unfortunately, these are the ones that scream the loudest on the newspapers, journals, and TV, trying to corrupt the hearts of the gullible.
