Science and the Glory of Kings
In some ways, science is reminiscent of one of the biblical proverbs: “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2). The “hard” sciences—physics, chemistry, biology, and their subdisciplines—represent the spirit of this verse well. Each of these disciplines is an effort to explore the works of the Creator’s hands and seek out facts hidden under the surface.
- The theory of evolution is often described as an undeniable fact, proven by science. Does the evidence demand such a conclusion?
- Young-earth creationists claim that Earth and the universe were created 6,000 years ago. Does the Bible really teach that?
- How should the evidence of our world and the teachings of the Bible be understood? What is the truth about the origin of the world and of life?
