I think Christians put far too much effort into trying to disprove certain scientific theories-especially evolution vs. creationism/intelligent design.
Since God is our Creator, He cannot be at odds with science, mathematics, geology or any other field of study. I believe God could have created us in a moment or by evolution.
If there is an apparent conflict between Science and the Bible, then either we are not interpreting the Bible correctly, or Science has made a false assumption.
We experience God in the Spiritual realm. Science deals with the physical realm. I don’t believe Genesis was intended to be a book about science. I think Genesis tells us about the human relationship with God, mankind-and all of God’s creation. It reveals the origin of sin and the need for reconciliation with God.
I read about 500 pages of court manuscripts regarding the trial: Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, Dover, Pennsylvania Intelligent Design Case. I was shocked by what I read.
What I am about to say now is my own impression of what I read in those 500 pages of that court case: Several of those who called themselves Christians appeared to have committed blatant perjury, and finally had to admit the truth on the stand. At one point it got so bad the Judge took over the questioning. This was not our finest hour as Christians.
In the end, upon cross examination, Michael Behe’s claims about the Theory of Intelligent Design fell apart, along with his credibility (this is my opinion.) Behe admitted, under oath, basically that the definition of a scientific theory would have to be changed, for Intelligent Design to be considered a scientific theory.
Too often, we let other Christians tell us things without checking it out ourselves-very dangerous. Then we lose credibility.
I think we should leave science to the scientists. We need to deal with the spiritual issues and concentrate on walking with Christ.
