How Does Science Support the Bible?
Dear Digger Doug,
I was wondering how science supports the Bible and how the Bible supports science. If you know the answer, please write it in your magazine. I’ll be the first to see it.
You have asked a great question. (I’m sorry it has taken us so long to put it in our magazine. Sometimes Iguanodon keeps me busy answering questions for our new children’s show Digger Doug’s Underground.)
The Bible and true science support each other perfectly (as this issue of Discovery teaches). In the very first chapter of the Bible we learn that living things produce after their own kind (Genesis 1:11,12,21,24,25). Tomato plants produce tomatoes. Lions give birth to baby lions. Humans give birth to humans. This is exactly what true science shows. In fact, the scientific Law of Biogenesis says that all physical life comes from previous life of its own kind. Evolution, on the other hand, teaches the opposite. It says that over millions of years life can (and supposedly did) evolve into different kinds of life. This is just one example of where the Bible is more scientific than evolution.
Although the Bible is not strictly a science book, we can be confident that whenever it deals with a scientific subject, it is accurate. Remember: “The Lord made the heavens and the Earth, the sea, and all that is in them” (Exodus 20:11). He is the Supreme Scientist, not man.
