Scientists Needed!

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Littlegentleman, Jan 12, 2015.

  1. Hello everybody!

    I am working on the youtube comments to convert atheists to Christianity.
    If anybody knows a lot about science I need your help!
    Just reply to my thread and I will get you started!


  2. Welcome to CFS, Little. May God be with you in your endeavor.
  3. No one

    NO one come to me less the Father draws him....... The only way to the Father is through the Son

  4. I know the physical sciences well. What do you need to know?
  5. Both Michael's links are useful, IMO. While you are at youtube - watch Trey Smith's "Noah" and "The theory of everything". They are long but he uses scripture and science well, also IMO.
  6. He's not a scientist but what he does is what you want: Ravi Zacharias
  7. The christian astrophysicist Hugh Ross has a very interesting website called Reasons to Believe.

    Since Ross approaches the discussion of origins from an astrophysics point of view instead of life science, there will probably be some arguments there most Christians haven't come across before, for example. A lot of Christians won't agree with him because he doesn't support young earth creationism, but he does argue that astrophysics exposes evolution as false.

    Also, if you search "apologia church" on youtube, you'll find a bunch of footage of this guy named Jeff Durbin speaking with athiests about the existence of God. You might pick up a few things you can use from him. I don't agree with everything he says, but the "raw" footage videos he has can be useful in lots of ways. Generally, I think he conducts himself well. He mainly deals with philosophy though, not science.

    In general, I agree with the sentiment Ph8th (I'm guessing?) proposes, which is that you can't "prove" people out of their beliefs. But, I also am forced to recognize that philosophers and scientists do sometimes turn to God as a result of studying their fields, so I can't say that God won't use such a discussion to draw people to Himself.

    I have no idea at all how you plan to go about having these sort of discussions, but I do know that I started out having them the wrong way. Overall, I think it may be helpful to keep in mind as you have these talks that the love and compassion of Christ are more likely to plant a seed than humiliating another person publicly with a barrage of proof.

  8. Well, I am working on disproving the theory of the big bang, and I did not know that there were so many theories about the gravity.
    Do you think you could help me with that?
    Do you have a Google account?
  9. In Big Bang - they call God a singularity but otherwise it doesn't contradict scripture.
  10. A know quite a lot of science...universal laws, physics, chemistry, advanced sciences etc...
    I may be of assistance to you.
  11. I do not have a google account.

    You will have a very difficult time disproving the "big bang".
    The evidence supports it.
  12. I agree...I believe in how it was described in Genesis…

    Although…. I really cannot relate yet how the explosion cannot be relate into?

    That is: how is an explosion can contradict the scripture, "Let there be light: and there was light"

    It's a real question... not a complaint : )
  13. Explosion is the best they can come up with for the "singularity" causing things to happen. I wasn't there then but neither were "they" so I'm comfortable with now you don't see it - now ya do :) Basically, what with dna and big bang, few if none scientists are any longer saying it was random - they are all falling in line with intelligent design.
  14. I know Louis Giglio..did some evangelical presentations using the universe as a starting point to contemplating the awesome power of God. Google him.

    Cant think of many scientists off top of my head but you can mention Mendel and his experiments with peas very interesting showing how traits are passed down and what varieties can be made from hybrids etc. For anyone interested in genetics.

    Mendel was a christian..think he was a monk. In those days had a lot of monks. This points to God making kinds and two of each kinds. There is also bit of breeding going on in Labans flock. There is no sudden genetic mutation that leads to new species being created or evolving. If there are sports, often it turns out to be sterile in the following generation whoch does not breed true.

    You can reasarch this a bit more, this is basic biology.
  15. Can Creationists Be Scientists?
    by Dr. Jason Lisle on April 1, 2005
    • Although evolutionists interpret the evidence in light of their belief in evolution, science works perfectly well without any connection to evolution.

      It has been often said that “creationists cannot be real scientists.”

      Several years ago, the National Academy of Sciences published a guidebook entitled Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science.1 This guidebook states that evolution is “the most important concept in modern biology, a concept essential to understanding key aspects of living things.”

      In addition, the late evolutionist Theodosius Dobzhansky once made the now well-known comment that “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”2

      Is a belief in “particles-to-people” evolution really necessary to understand biology and other sciences?But is a belief in “particles-to-people” evolution really necessary to understand biology and other sciences? Is it even helpful? Are there any technological advances that have been made because of a belief in evolution?
      Although evolutionists interpret the evidence in light of their belief in evolution, science works perfectly well without any connection to evolution. Think about it this way: is a belief in molecules-to-man evolution necessary to understand how a computer works, how planets orbit the sun, how telescopes operate, or how plants and animals function? Has any biological or medical research benefited from a belief in evolution? No, not at all.

      In fact, the Ph.D. cell biologist (and creationist) Dr. David Menton, who speaks at many conferences, has stated, “The fact is that, though widely believed, evolution contributes nothing to our understanding of empirical science and thus plays no essential role in biomedical research or education.”3

      Nor has technology arisen due to a belief in evolution. Computers, cellular phones and DVD players all operate based on the laws of physics which God created. It is because God created a logical, orderly universe and gave us the ability to reason and to be creative that technology is possible. How can a belief in evolution (a belief that complex biological machines do not require an intelligent designer) aid in the development of complex machines which are clearly intelligently designed?

      Technology has shown us that sophisticated machines require intelligent designers-not random chance. Science and technology are perfectly consistent with the Bible.

      So it shouldn’t be surprising that there have been many scientists who believed in biblical creation. In my own research field of astrophysics, I am reminded of several of the great minds of history. Consider Isaac Newton, who co-discovered calculus, formulated the laws of motion and gravity, computed the nature of planetary orbits, invented the reflecting telescope and made a number of discoveries in optics.

      Consider Johannes Kepler, who discovered the three laws of planetary motion, or James Clerk Maxwell who discovered the four fundamental equations that light and all forms of electromagnetic radiation obey. These great scientists believed the Bible.

      Today as well, there are many Ph.D. scientists who reject evolution and instead believe that God created in six days as recorded in Scripture. Consider Dr. Russ Humphreys, a Ph.D. nuclear physicist who has developed (among many other things) a model to compute the present strength of planetary magnetic fields4 which was able to predict the field strengths of the outer planets. Did a belief in the Bible hinder his research? Not at all.

      (By the way, Dr. Humphreys will be one of more than 20 leading creationist researchers who will be speaking at this July’s Creation Mega Conference.)

      On the contrary, Dr. Humphreys was able to make these predictions precisely because he started from the principles of Scripture. Dr. John Baumgardner, a Ph.D. geophysicist and biblical creationist, has a model of catastrophic plate tectonics, which the journal Nature once featured (this model is based on the global Genesis Flood).

      Additionally, think of all the people who have benefited from a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. The MRI scanner was developed by the creationist Dr. Raymond Damadian5 who has been featured twice in our Creation magazine.

      Clearly, creationists can indeed be real scientists. And this shouldn’t be surprising since the very basis for scientific research is biblical creation. The universe is orderly because its Creator is logical and has imposed order on the universe. God created our minds and gave us the ability and curiosity to study the universe. Furthermore, we can trust that the universe will obey the same physics tomorrow as it does today because God is consistent. This is why science is possible.

      On the other hand, if the universe is just an accidental product of a big bang, why should it be orderly? Why should there be laws of nature if there is no lawgiver? If our brains are the by-products of random chance, why should we trust that their conclusions are accurate? But if our minds have been designed, and if the universe has been constructed by the Lord as the Bible teaches, then of course we should be able to study nature.

      Yes, science is possible because the Bible is true
    Rezz and Silk say Amen and like this.
  16. Well, I am working on disproving the theory of the big bang, and I did not know that there were so many theories about the gravity.
    Do you think you could help me with that?
    Do you have a Google account?
    Also I love your picture.
  17. I'd be concerned that attempts to "disprove" a well established theory will only turn atheists off of Christianity, doing more harm than good.
    I'd strongly urge you to reconsider your approach. I think that a better approach is in relation. As God is united with man, the highest reality is in relation among us as interconnected beings. The connection between One and the Other makes petty arguments trivial by comparison. :)

    Winning an argument with an atheist isn't going to do any good if you don't tell them the Gospel. It is God that saves, but the obligation of the Christian to spread the good news. John 6:44, Romans 10:14-15.

    In regards to your comment, I am confused as to what you meant to say. Are you trying to say that mankind is an interconnected being? Thanks in advance, God bless.
