    Does Science contradict the Bible or support it?
    Is the Bible just a myth? Does Science contradict the Bible or support it? When answering, please keep these two questions in mind.

    1) Was the watch you are now wearing created by a Big Bang?
    2) Or was it crafted by a Master Craftsman?

    The Bible is NOT a science book. No one should be reading the Bible to get science facts. That's NOT its purpose.

    Now, tell me what IS the Bible's purpose.

    According to the Encyclopedia of Scientific Principles, Laws, and Theories, a scientific theory must:

    1.Be observable
    2.Be reproducible by controlled experiments
    3.Make accurate predictions

    For example, scientists have not been able to provide or produce a single successful experiment as proof that the Big Bang theory is fact. All of their experiments failed which produced a 100% failure rate! Now that is Blind Faith!

    The Bible describes the earth as suspended “upon nothing.” (Job 26:7) There is no mention of our planet resting on the shoulders of a giant or on the backs of elephants that stand on a turtle, as some popular myths of ancient times had it. Rather, the Bible leaves the door open to scientific discovery. In time, Nicolaus Copernicus and Johannes Kepler described how the planets move around the sun driven by an invisible force. Isaac Newton later showed how gravitation governs the movement of all objects in space.

    I'm not sure how on could duplicate the Big Bang. How would you suggest they do it? Most astronomers believe in the theory based on observed astronomical phenomenon.

    The Bible, like almost all religions is a way for man to explain natural events that science, at the time, couldn't. Therefore, since the Bible tries to explain natural events, there isn't necessarily contradictions. Unless you believe in a strict literal interpretation.

    A study of explosions help one to discern that the right components must first exist. An explosion doesn't come from nothing but something to cause the sudden energy burst must have already existed.

    Could Life come from an explosion or is there an intelligent designer? The Bible writer David said in prayer to God: “Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm 139:16)

    Also, in order for Life to exist, proteins had to come first, this suggests Intelligent Design. Otherwise Life is simply not possible.

    Show me where they have tried and failed to recreate the big bang theory, or stick to quoting your primitives. Since obviously you don't have the knowledge to even extrapolate a theory, you cannot say that the creator didn't set events in motion using a big bang.

    Science neither contradicts nor supports the Bible.
    I find modern day Christianity SOOOOOOooooooo depressing, when I run into questions like this.
    Can't you just enjoy the beauty and not try to pick it to pieces to carve a name for yourself?

    MECHANICAL GEARS have long been thought to be solely a product of human ingenuity. That view has been proved wrong! Interlocking gears have been discovered in a living creature—the juvenile Issus leafhopper, found in gardens all over Europe. *

    The bibles purpose is to keep you in submission and paying your taxes to the masters of Judeo-christian supremacist world order of the 13th Tribe of the Grand Wazooki. Judging from your question, they are expecting your check in the mail.

    How Science Affects Your Life? https://www.jw.org/en/publications/m...everyday-life/

    Age of the earth and the universe

    Scientists estimate that the earth is about 4 billion years old and that the universe was born some 13 to 14 billion years ago. The Bible sets no date for the creation of the universe. In no place does it affirm that the earth is only a few thousand years old. The very first verse in the Bible reads: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) That general statement allows scientists to determine the age of the physical world according to sound scientific principles.
