It’s an age-old question. One of life’s great mysteries. Which came first – the chicken or the egg? It’s stumped people for a long time – apparently – because scientists are still working on it. At least they were up until a couple days ago. It’s all figured out now. Finally – maybe I can get some sleep at night now, instead of pondering this great question!
God & science
So often, it seems like God & science are at odd with each other. It’s like we’re taught we can believe in one or the other – but not both.
My question – why not?
The more I study both God & science, the more I realize that science is not incompatible with belief in God. If anything, science proves that God must exist. In fact, science is more and more proving that the universe could not possibly exist without God.
On top of that, many people are taught that science is too hard to understand. The truth is, pretty much anything can be made to seem to hard to understand. If someone uses really big words – words that are only known to the “insiders” in whatever field it may be – anyone on the “outside” probably wouldn’t have a clue what’s being talked about. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Given that I’m a “lowly mortal” and not perfect – I need to be sure you get this next part. What is suggested here is only a possibility – a possible explanation of why we might perceive these 11 dimensions. I make no statement as to what God actually did, does or will do. It’s an explanation of how the Bible and science might be much more in line than many people think – as opposed to the all too easy position to take that the Bible and science are totally at odds with each other.
One of the warnings we get from Jesus is this – Mt 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” Like I said – the question of who gets credit for “evolution” – whether it’s atheistic or theistic evolution – is a huge deal. Who gets the credit, from your point of view?
Is evolution a sure thing?
“The human brain consists of about ten thousand million nerve cells. Each nerve cell puts out between ten thousand and one hundred thousand connecting fibers by which it makes contact with other nerve cells in the brain. Altogether the total number of connections in the human brain approaches 1015 or a thousand million million. Numbers in the order of 1015 are of course completely beyond comprehension.”
You know how when you read those parts of the Bible you tend to skip over them? You probably just skipped it now. … if they are mentioned again, it probably says something about their heritage anyway. And failing that – if you really want to know who someone was, just Google them. What’s the big deal?
