The Christian Roots of Science
& Busting The Myths of Science
Why did science flourish in the West, and only the West? The biblical worldview provided the presuppositions that allowed science to flourish while it was stillborn in other places such as Greece and China. Evolutionists deny this biblical foundation for science by accusing Christianity of superstitions that held science back. Jonathan deftly busts the myth of the 'Dark Ages'—a time marked by many scientific advances. He also busts the myths of Galileo, belief in a flat earth, and more.
