Okay as a scientist I am of course very interested in how sciece relates to the Bible. For quite some time now I have wrestled with the idea of the Laws of Science. I have now come this conclusion: there is no such thing as the Laws of Science. That the Laws of Science are a philosophic invention rather than a scientific fact.
So, let me explain. Take an object like a bunch of keys in your hand and let go. What happens? It falls to the ground. Why? Laws of Science says because there is a magnet in the earth called gravity that pulls all objects down. I think it is because God made it drop and if He had not made it drop it would have hovered about in the air.
In other words everything that happens in the scientific realm happens not because of the Laws of Science but by the direct action of God. The Laws of Science were invented by philosophers to explain away God. Look at Psalm 104:14 to find out why grass grows in your garden.
Interested in your comments.
Laws of science do not claim keys fall to the ground because there is a magnet in the earth. Likewise, they do not call gravity a magnet.
Newton discovered the law of gravity. He derived his Law of Gravity: the force of gravity = G × (mass #1) × (mass #2) / (distance between them)2 and this force is directed toward each object, so it is always attractive. In a bold, revolutionary step, Newton stated that his gravity law worked for any
two objects with mass. That means both the keys and the earth have gravity and are attracted to each other.
Now, Newton's "law" is just a scientific way to describe a result of God's creation. God created the earth, He created the universe, he created each of us. God created everything that has mass. The law merely describes the relationship between two bodies of "mass."
I can never understand the alleged conflict between church and science. Newton was a prolific writer on theology as well as science.
Science is just a way of describing what God created as well as relationships between objects God has created.
Yes, there are atheist scientists who try to use science to disprove God, but they have been unsuccessful. There are also Christian scientists (I do not mean the religious sect) who work toward using science to prove God and Godly principles.
