Harmonizing Science and Scripture? (and How the Big Bang Theory Contradicts Scripture)



Wrong hermeneutics creates massive internal inconsistencies in Scripture and also awful theological problems. For example, the ‘big bang’ is a loaded term that cannot be readily isolated from the evolutionary baggage that accompanies it. See the box on how the order of appearance in a big bang/long-age scenario completely contradicts Genesis 1. It undermines the integrity of Scripture.

The Big Bang order of appearance (also for ‘progressive creation’)


The order of appearance in Genesis 1


1. Sun/stars existed before Earth 1. Earth created before sun/stars
2. Sun is Earth’s first light 2. Light created before sun
3. First life = marine organisms 3. First life = land plants
3. Reptiles pre-date birds 4. Birds pre-date land reptiles
5. Land mammals pre-date whales 5. Whales pre-date land mammals
6. Disease/death precede man 6. Disease/death result from man’s sin

Earth’s Magnetic Field: Evidence that the Earth is Young by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati

Excerpt: "The earth’s magnetic field is not only a good navigational aid and a shield from space particles, it is powerful evidence against evolution and billions of years. The clear decay pattern shows the earth could not be older than about 10,000 years."

For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.  - Exodus 20:11, KJV

"The idea of millions of years came from the belief that the fossil record was built up over a long time. As soon as people allow for millions of years, they allow for the fossil record to be millions of years old. This creates an insurmountable problem regarding the gospel. The fossil record consists of the death of billions of creatures. In fact, it is a record of death, disease, suffering, cruelty, and brutality. It is a very ugly record. The Bible is adamant though, that death, disease, and suffering came into the world as a result of sin. God instituted death and bloodshed because of sin so man could be redeemed. As soon as Christians allow for death, suffering, and disease before sin, then the whole foundations of the message of the Cross and the Atonement have been destroyed. The doctrine of original sin, then, is totally undermined. If there were death, disease, and suffering before Adam rebelled -- then what did sin do to the world? What does Paul mean in Romans 8 when he says the whole of creation groans in pain because of the Curse? How can all things be restored in the future to no more death and suffering, unless the beginning was also free of death and suffering? The whole message of the gospel falls apart if one allows millions of years for the creation of the world." - The Necessity for Believing in Six Literal Days (emphases added), by Ken Ham.

The 10 Best Evidences From Science That Confirm A Young Earth (Free Online Articles From Answers In Genesis' Answers Magazine & Other Free Creationist MP3s, Videos, Books, etc.)

Excerpt: "The earth is only a few thousand years old. That's a fact, plainly revealed in God's Word. So we should expect to find plenty of evidence for its youth. And that's what we find-in the earth's geology, biology, paleontology, and even astronomy. Literally hundreds of dating methods could be used to attempt an estimate of the earth's age, and the vast majority of them point to a much younger earth than the 4.5 billion years claimed by secularists. The following series of articles presents what Answers in Genesis researchers picked as the ten best scientific evidences that contradict billions of years and confirm a relatively young earth and universe."

15 Questions Evolutionists Can't Answer - Dr. Don Batten (Free Online Text)

Excerpt: "How did life originate? Evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted, 'Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.' Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, 'we don’t really know how life originated on this planet'. A minimal cell needs several hundred proteins. Even if every atom in the universe were an experiment with all the correct amino acids present for every possible molecular vibration in the supposed evolutionary age of the universe, not even one average-sized functional protein would form. So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?"

Jim Dodson Reviews and Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive


If you love the Bible, then you may well be Reformed. If you think of yourself as Reformed, but you have seldom or have never read older Reformed literature, prepare to be challenged. The Puritan Hard Drive provides primary sources and depth of theological and spiritual insight which is lacking in much of what is passed off as genuine Reformed theology. If you think of yourself as conservative, the older Puritan and Reformed authors will help you sort reality from myth in your quest to be truly Reformed. There are more solid resources for less money here than anywhere else. I highly recommend you take responsibility for your soul and spend a few shekels for this cup of cold water in the midst of the modern religious desert.
