Evidence for Creation Part 1

Continuing with the series on creation science, I want to share some things from the book Evidence for Creation by Tom DeRosa (Coral Ridge Ministries). However, this first blog over the book will not focus on the content so much, but on some of the quotes from other sources in the book.

I want to simply show some of the quotes from leading scientist from different fields. In essence, I will let these scientists’ words defend themselves against the modern day notion that Christians don’t understand science.

“If one considers the matter right, Natural Philosophy, after God’s Word, the surest medicine for superstition, and also the most approved nourishment of Faith. And so she is rightly given to Religion as a most faithful handmaiden; the one manifesting the will of God, the other His power.”
                                                                        --Francis Bacon
                                                                        Father of the Scientific Method

“I give you thanks, Creator God, that you have given me this joy in Thy creation, and I rejoice in the works of Your hands. See I have now completed the work to which I was called. In it I have used all the talents You have lent to my spirit.”
                                                                        --Johannes Kepler
                                                                        famous astronomer on planetary motion

“We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever.”
                                                                        --Sir Isaac Newton
                                                                        developed laws of gravitation

If Christians die and there isn’t really a God, “he has lost nothing. But if a Christian dies and there is a God, heaven and hell, he has gained everything, while his ‘skeptical friend’ has lost everything in hell.”

                                                                        --Blaise Pascal
                                                                        Father of the Science of Hydrostatics

“The Wisdom of God Manifested in the Works of the Creation”

                                                                        book written by John Ray
botanists who introduced the first definition of species being from reproduction, inspired by Genesis 1

God’s “finely-tuned clock” is “where all things are so skillfully contrived that the engine being once set-a-moving, all things proceed according to the Artificer’s first design.”

                                                                        --Robert Boyle
                                                                        Father of Physical Chemistry

This book contained more quotes from leading scientists, as well as empirical data. The next blog will look more at the evidence for Creation, but in this one I wanted to let some of the world’s most renown researches speak for themselves.
