the fundamental issues between origins science and creationism is that
“science” has now been defined to allow only naturalistic explanations. And
since scientists are not satisfied with “I don’t know” as an answer, they end
up promoting theories of our origins which must exclude God by definition. It
seems that keeping the philosophy of naturalism is more important than
understanding what is real and true. The Bible speaks of an entire spiritual
world which is just as real as the physical world we see. Just as scientists
infer conclusions about what they can’t see from what they can observe, the
design and purpose evident in the universe, earth, and living things infers
the existence of a powerful creator.
though the scientific community claims it is following “methodological
naturalism” and not necessarily “philosophical naturalism”, the end result
encourages an atheistic world-view.
