Trust The Science

‘Trust the science’ is the central doctrine of secular thought. It’s repeated like a mantra, observed like a religion and used as a sledge hammer against any doubters. Hatch wants to go on the record and say that he doubts the science. Primarily, because science is about asking questions not proving answers. One question leads to another, open debate is encouraged and reasonable people can disagree. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work.


Brittanica defines science like this: 
Science - any system of knowledge that is concerned with the physical world and its phenomena and that entails unbiased observations and systematic experimentation. In general, a science involves a pursuit of knowledge covering general truths or the operations of fundamental laws. 


“Unbiased Observations” seems to me to be the key to science. Science is not theology but western culture treats it like it is. Theology is built on faith and undergirds a belief system. Science is built on questions and the pursuit of knowledge. Theology and science can coexist because they ask two different questions. Theology asks, “Who is God and how can I know Him while Science asks, “What did He create and how does it work?”.


Be diligent of the questions you ask and where you place your faith.


Trust GOD’s Word. Doubt the culture.
