A VIEW FROM THE CONFLUENCE OF FAITH AND SCIENCE
Much appreciation to: Yuval Harari and Jared Diamond, Gerald Schroeder and Hue Ross, and Moses
Evolution by natural selection is one of the best-substantiated theories in science…Evolutionists
Only one text describes what scientists have since discovered – the Big Bang…Cosmologists
Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities… have been clearly seen …Creationist
Conscience (ethos), Prophecy (revelation), Reason (logic), and Acts (demonstration)
No matter the particular path(s) – only Faith begets Belief
Scientific discoveries continue to illuminate to controversial Beliefs
Question: Is it incongruous to re-examine faith-allied claims in the light of Science?
Creationists provided Scientific guidance before Theological arguments
No matter the genesis of inspiration, whether – vision incited by revelation, reason conferred by science, or the natural entangled with the transcendental – faith must be cultivated to engender affection, and engaged to actualize potential. This precept is fundamental; everything that exist and everything we are derives from this TripleLux. It is expressed poignantly by the familiar affirmation – faith without works is dead; said in context – inspiration begets cultivation, which begets actualization, e.g. Creation.
Creation exudes Cultivation (synchronization) and Actualization (resiliency)
Question: What are some plausible explanations as to the Inspiration for creation?
Science provides systematic verification of facts, truths, and inference regarding faith
Observation of cultivation and examination of actualization have increased scientific knowledge regarding cosmology, ecology, and anthropology exponentially; inspiration was considered too nebulous for scientific analysis. Given the interdependency of these three high science disciplines, it is reasonable to conclude they share the same modus of inspiration. Prior to the confluence of these high science disciplines, creationism – presented in just thirty-one succinct verses – provided the only complimentary account. This scientific tsunami has given inescapable gravity to but one term, Creator.
Scientific Cosmology coincides with Creationism
Scientific Ecology coincides with Creationism
Question: Can Anthropology coincide with Cosmology/Ecology, but not Creationism?
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…Gen. 1: 1-5
Cosmology is the scientific discipline that investigates the origin and development of the universe. While theories abound, the one exhibiting credible correlation between faith and reason is referred to as the Big Bang. Cosmologists describe the universe as the production of an intelligent beginner and a first cause event – from great nothingness.
The COBE and Hubble satellites enabled scientists to determine the precise tempo at which the universe transpired. In the only precise accounting of record, the six periods – evening (chaos – ereb) to morning (order – boqer) – to include a final period of reference (one earth orbit) – ranged from millions to but thousands of reference-based years. Corroboration and illumination of this written account by credible mathematical and cosmogenesis analysis gives rise to but one description – Creator.
Only one Beginning and Ending coincide with the Creation of the Universe
Question: If Creation of the Universe was the Beginning, what was the End objective?
God called the vault “sky” (3.8B yrs.) – God called the dry ground “land”… the gathered waters he called “seas”… Let the land produce vegetation (2.0B yrs.) – Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from the night (1.0B yrs.) – Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky (0.5B yrs.) – Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds (0.2B yrs.) Gen. 1: 6-25
Ecology is the scientific discipline that investigates organisms, physical surroundings, and the consequences of their interaction. Analysis of geophysical and fossil data has convinced scientists that the cooling of the earth and the appearance of water and sunshine proffered conditions conducive to the consequential-evolution of biological organisms. No matter debates regarding consequential-resiliency (e.g. global warming), the earth, atmosphere, plants, and animals form a highly complex relational-ecosystem, which boundaries must be understood and respected.
Elementary science, observation, and intuition, embolden the presumption that within the relational-ecosystem the simple gives rise to the more complex. However, molecular biologists have discovered single cell plants with hundreds of times the genetic information per cell as mammals, but lack a plausible explanation as to the origin of either genome. No matter the possible scientific incongruity, the quest for planets evidencing hydro potentiality advances. Only one explanation coincides with earth’s genetically rich relational-ecosystem and congruent cosmological periodicity – Creator.
The Biblical account attests that biological organisms bringing forth after their own kind
Question: Does 2B yrs. of composition within the boundaries of kind refute Evolution?
Anthropology is the scientific discipline that studies human beings and cultures. It is perhaps the most intriguing of all human interests, besides critical life saving therapies and protocols. Who are we (relationship), why are we here (purpose), and where did we come from (origin)? While relationship and purpose harbor overarching insight, for context and consistency we’ll follow the trail of origin to its intersection with the others.
Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground…Gen. 2: 7
Biologically, modern humans are a part of the Homo genus and Sapiens species, of which there were many other species to include Erectus, Ergaster, and Neanderthal; only Homo sapiens survive. Credible scientific investigations repeatedly confirm the sudden not consequential-evolutionary appearance of Homo sapiens. Evolutionists continue to search for a direct link to other Homo genus, contending that Homo sapiens are mammal class evolutionary organisms, and like plants and other animals, are the progeny of the same relational-ecosystem. Further scientific scrutiny reveals that Homo sapiens genetic code is hugely different from other Homo species.
Unlike other Homo genus, Sapiens are the Creators direct handiwork, not consequential-evolution
Question: Why is it critical that Evolutionists directly link all Homo geniuses?
Then the Lord…breathed into his nostrils the breath of life …Gen. 2: 7
Despite smaller stature and smaller brains than Neanderthals, Sapiens evidence incomparably advanced cognition and imagination, exhibited by no other Homo genus. The agility biologist, psychologist, and social scientists describe as super-intelligence, derives from impartation of prescient-connection unbounded by time, space, or matter.
The Creator breathed (imparted) His own eternal life spirit into Homo sapiens, not oxygen
…and the man became a living being…Gen. 2: 7
Homo sapiens uniqueness – the ability to see what did not exist as though it were, to modify ecosystem relationships to their own advantage, to achieve sufficient caloric intake in a fraction of the time and effort required by other Homo species, and to travel the breath of the planet – derives not from consequential-evolution, but impartation of spirit and then animation of reason, interests, and creativity, this screams Creator.
Th Creator’s life spirit transformed the corporeal and synaptic into the conscious and sentient
Question: What does the gift of Soul and Spirit suggest about Relationship and Purpose?
