In Victorian England Herbert Spencer won an award for discovering the 5 categories of science.

Time

Force

Action

Space

Matter.

There was only 1 problem - Genesis 1 v 1 got there first.

In the beginning - Time

God - Force (of course, God is more than a force, but you get my meaning)

Created - action

Heaven- Space

Earth - Matter.

Sorry, Herbert, old son, you're about 6,000 years too late !! 

 

I was thinking about what Bob Hutton said about Herbert Spencer and the, "Five Categories of Science."

In Category # 2, we have, "Force.". In order to create anything, or to make anything from something; an outside source of power is required. In Jeremiah 10: 1-16 the prophet Jeremiah is comparing the gods (idols) of this world and God in heaven.

Jeremiah 10:11 and 12 state, "Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. He [God in heaven] made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion." The power, or force, of God is tremendous; beyond human comprehension. And, there is no force, or power, on the earth, or in the universe, to create the heavens. The force necessary to create the heavens is not of the universe.

The second law of thermodynamics, which science understands, is the death blow to the idea (or theory) of evolution and the "big bang", which states that everything was created by  some sort of cosmic explosion, which brought order out of disorder.

In layman's terms the second law of thermodynamics says that everything tends toward disorder from a state of order. In other words things decay or decrease. This can be seen and understood by simple observation. Left to itself a fire never gets hotter, it always tends to get cooler and smaller until it burns out completely.

Your car doesn't become newer than when it was built it decays over time. You don't get younger and more perfect with time, you get older and your body degenerates. Unless any matter is acted upon by an outside force it will degenerate naturally. Scientists know this, but still cling to the foolish idea of evolution, which states that things go from a state of chaos to a state of order naturally.

So Alan is entirely correct in his observation that "the force necessary to create the heavens is not of the universe." This genders the question of exactly where the power to create the heavens and all matter originates. In our Bible we find the very simple answer in Genesis chapter one and verse one. "In the beginning God."

And so it is that all creation can arrive at the conclusion, if they would, that everything that we can see was created supernaturally by a power outside of this universe, outside of time and not subject to any natural law.  The second law of thermodynamics then should be enough to convince anyone of the truth that David penned so long ago; " Psm 19:1  <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.  2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.  3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

As Jim Alaska pointed out, the Second law of Thermodynamics, proves the accuracy of Jeremiah's statement that the power to create the universe was outside, or independent, of the universe.  Accurate science proves the validity of the scientific statements found in the scriptures and disproves the theory of evolution. The heavens, and all creation, "... declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork." Psalm 19:1

Ukelemike is entirely correct. The science of archaeology has indeed proven that the scriptures are accurate, reliable and trustworthy. Throughout the modern age of archaeology numerous archaeologists have uncovered biblical cities mentioned in the scriptures, confirmed events, battles and nations listed in the scriptures. And, as time goes on and the the archaeologists have more scientific resources and data available, we will probably see other events, battles, kings, and personages mentioned in the scriptures verified by proven scientific archaeological study.

Good, honest, scientific methods will always confirm the accuracy of the scriptures. Unreliable scientific methods, dis-honest scientists, skeptics, scorners, agnostics, deviously use non-scientific methods to try and dis-credit, or cause people to doubt,  the validity of the scriptures. 

"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called." 1 Timothy 6:20

Brethren,

I have maintained throughout this study that, "Good, honest, scientific, methods, and instruments, will always confirm the accuracy of the scriptures."

Once again, NASA has confirmed the scientific accuracy of the scriptures. "And the earth was without form and void." Genesis 1:2a The only difference between Earth and the other bodies in the Solar System is that God created "life" on Earth after Genesis 1:2, that there was no life on the Earth until after Genesis 1:2. Therefore, the "Gap Theory" is not true and that once scientific instruments reach other planetary bodies they will discover them, "without form and void." In earlier lessons I went into detail concerning the meaning of "without form or void."

NASA just sent back photos from their latest probe on Mars, "InSight," and it is as desolate as all of the other planetary bodies. In fact, some of the newspapers use the term "desolate" for their description of the landscape of Mars.

Brethren,

In the preparation of the next lesson, I have decided to slowly correct the grammatical, spelling, and any scientific, historical, dating, errors in the past lessons in order to eventually present all of these lessons (free of charge), to the brethren here on OnLine Baptist in PDF format. So, if there are any errors that you discover in my usage of scripture, scientific analysis, error in reasoning or logic, in any past lesson, feel free to bring it to my attention and we will discuss your findings.

Alan

 

Although a lot of time has passed, I am trying to get re-organized to finish putting the subjects discussed in, 'Scientific Facts in the Bible,' in PDF format.

The Water Distillation Cycle of the Earth

The water distillation cycle of the earth is very important to the life of mankind. Due to the fact that the water cycle process purifies the water it has also been called, “The Distillation Process.”

Job 36:27 & 28, “For he [God] maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.”

The water distillation cycle is an orderly, natural and complex cycle that is for the sustenance of the physical life of mankind. The Distillation Process is also an accurate scientific and verifiable fact.

The simple water distillation cycle of the earth is as follows: (1) Atmosphere – Clouds; (2) Precipitation; Rain, snow or ice; (3) Runoff - snowmelt; (4) Infiltration – Groundwater or Subsurface flow, Lakes, Rivers, and Ocean; (5) Evaporation / Condensation – Heat of the Sun. The Sun drives the Water Distillation Cycle and Distils or Purifies, the water, during evaporation.

Without the water distillation process life on earth could not be supported and the earth would soon become a wasteland. Exactly like the other planets, moons, and asteroids in the universe.

The Distillation & Evaporation Process

Psalms 135:6 & 7, “Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.”

Psalm 135:7, “He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth” the evaporation process distils the water. God caused or designed the water distillation cycle of the earth. Like all of the works of God, the Distillation Process is an orderly arrangement of the physical sciences for the benefit of mankind.

 

Brethren,

In my current project to put his study in PDF form, and since the the time I made this lesson, I read the book, "The Twilight of Evolution," by Dr. Henry Morris. I am going to add this quote, found on page 71, concerning the water, or hydrologic, cycle of the earth, by Dr. Morris to this lesson, " Waters are evaporated from the oceans (Psalm 33:7), carried inland by the winds (Ecclesiastes 1:6) caused to encounter particles of dust and sea salt to serve as nuclei of condensation (Proverbs 8:26), condense into liquid water droplets in the form of clouds, (Job 26:8), which in turn under the proper conditions coalesce and fall as rain (Job 36:27-28), providing water for maintenance of life on the earth (Isaiah 55:10), and finally return by the rivers to the oceans from which they come (Ecclesiastes 1:7)." 

The scientific accuracy of the scriptures is amazing!

God Bless!

Alan

Brethren,

The other reason for this thread is to edify and strengthen the brethren in the belief of the written word of God. Also, in our age, through the errors of the teachings of Darwinism, skepticism, scoffers, and worldly philosophy, this thread is written to help restore the Christians belief in the reliability, accuracy, and the infallibility of the scriptures in all disciplines.

As God created this world in His wisdom and understanding, all things that He did are according to scientific, biological, mathematical, and historical order. As we develop this thread if any of the brethren want to discuss either what has already been brought out, or, a scripture verse dealing with the natural world that would help our understanding in the scientific accuracy of the Bible please bring it to our attention.

Alan

Brethren,

I  will be adding the following quote by Dr. Henry Morris in my PDF of this study. If there are any discussions with the quote by Dr. Morris please bring out your thoughts.

Alan

The renowned scientist Dr. Henry Morris correctly observed, “Whenever a biblical passage deals either with a broad scientific principle or with some particular item of scientific data, it will inevitably be found on careful study to be fully accurate in its scientific insights. Often it will be found even to have anticipated scientific discoveries. The Bible is indeed a book of science, as well as a book of history, literature, psychology, economics, law, education, and every other field. It does not use the technical jargon of particular disciplines, of course, but speaks in the universal language of human experience. As the Word of God, it is altogether “profitable … that the man of God may be perfect.” (2 Tim.3:16-17).”1
