Miracles in the Bible, are they “Unscientific”?

Without miracles in the bible, the Christian faith would not even be relevant, other than good lessons from a “good teacher” Jesus. In fact all of the Christian faith hinges on the miracle of Jesus’ resurrection (1 Corinthians 15). The resurrection is foundational to the Christian Faith.

Conventional scientific belief would state that the resurrection, let alone the other miracles found in the bible are indeed “unscientific” According to Wikipedia the scientific method is defines as: The process of the scientific method involves making conjectures (hypotheses), deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and then carrying out experiments or empirical observations based on those predictions. A hypothesis is a conjecture, based on knowledge obtained while seeking answers to the question.  So according to that definition, miracles are not scientific.

One argument from science would  state that, “miracles are a violation of natural law”. Miracles are not a violation of natural law, as they are acts from a personal God Who cannot be predicted or explained away by processes or natural causes.

Yes, Miracles can be suppressed by people who have no desire to believe such miracles as Jesus changing the water to wine or healing lepers. One such passage of scripture is quite clear that some will not believe in any case:

Luke 16:31 NASB: “But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”

As we can see, miracles will not guarantee belief.

How the world operates is described by “natural law” but has no control over it. Natural processes are merely a pattern or template, and do not set anything in motion. It simply describes what happens when there is no agent interfering with casual order. When skeptics claim there is no God they are stating that miracles cannot exist! They put a philosophical roadblock in the way of open thinking.

I will end this with a tidbit of information. The first user and documentarian of the scientific method and set up inductive methods for scientific inquiry was a Christian named Sir Roger Bacon, (1561–1626).

No, the miracles of the bible are not scientific, they are from a loving creator.

Does Atheism lacks the ability to account for our existence?

Yes it does. So where did the universe, and us, come from? Atheism can only offer an impersonal cause. But an impersonal cause that precedes the universe must have always possessed the necessary and sufficient conditions to bring the universe into existence. If this pre-existing cause always existed, then it always possessed these conditions. But this necessitates an automatic generation of the universe, because when the necessary sufficient conditions are there, the result is automatic. But this means the universe would have been created an infinitely long time ago. But the universe is not infinitely old, therefore the impersonal cause of the universe cannot be supported from the atheist perspective.
The universe exists. It is not infinitely old. If it were it would have run out of energy long ago. Therefore, it had a beginning. The universe did not bring itself into existence. Since it was brought into existence by something else, I assert that God is the one who created the universe.

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

More So-Called Myths that Evolutionists Like to Push

– Science says: Men have been aware of germs since the work of Louis Pasteur was published over one hundred years ago.

God warned about germ contagions over 3000 years ago: Numbers 19:11, 14 and 16. Touching dead bodies came with a warning, as well as separating lepers from the uninfected. God commanded that the Hebrews to wash their hands under running water. How did Moses know about these practices? Apparently science has only known about this for the last one hundred years!

– Science says : The giants of the Bible are foolishness.

This is where we need to define what a “giant” is. There is no record to my knowledge that Christian leaders have ever said that there was giants 40 feet tall! There have been and still are “giants” living among us. Charlemagne, European ruler in the eighth century was reported as being just under 8 feet tall! Pliny the Younger wrote that Secundilla and Pusic were over 10 feet tall! Then there was Patrick Carter from Bristol UK, he died in 1802 and was measured at 8′ 7″ tall! Why do Bible critics look so foolish sometime? No answer for you there.

Don’t let the Bible critics fool you, question there “assumptions without observations”. There are so many more so-called “Myths” that can be explained.

Pray for the God haters and unbelievers to have the Holy Spirit come over them!

Did the Medieval Church Teach a Flat Earth?

Historical revisionists like to tell the fable of the Medieval Church teaching that the earth is flat. Along with that fable skeptics feel vilified when science proves the Bible incorrect. Is this the case in actuality? No, it is a straw-man argument. As far back as the ancient Greeks, people knew that the earth was round.The whole fable is simply nineteenth century hype.

Oxford Professor Alister McGrath stated, “The idea that science and religion are in perpetual conflict is no longer taken seriously by any major historian of science. One of the last remaining bastions of atheism which survives only at the popular level – namely, the myth that an atheistic, fact-based science is permanently at war with a faith-based religion”

Have the skeptic show you the scripture where a flat earth is taught.

Scientism And It’s Problems

I love it when people engrossed in Scientism say they only need science because science will eventually fix everything and answer all our problems. They will go on to put down and ridicule believers in God and his writings in the Bible stating how can you believe in what is written down in an “old book written by desert peasants?” Let’s look at some of the past failures of science and ask them ” You put faith/trust in something with this track record? Here we go:
“Piltdown Chicken, Chernobyl, Mercury Fillings, Thalidomide, Hole in the Ozone Layer, Global Cooling, Global Heating, Darwinian Evolution, Iridium, Silicone Implants, Y2K, MTBE Contamination, DMSO, the Fen-phen Fiasco, Over Use of Antibiotics, Aspartame, Saccharine, and Lucy for a slice of examples of vacillation and failures of science.

As for a “dusty book written by peasants”, there are 45+ Prophecies that have been fulfilled and plenty of examples of the bible speaking about so called “scientific discoveries” of modern times in that “dusty book”! For example: The round shape of the earth, earth is suspended in nothing, the stars are innumerable, the existence of valleys in the seas, the hydrologic cycle, concept of entropy and many more!

Don’t get me wrong, I am a lover of science and believe that science is a gift from God in many cases. Science also exposes the wonders of creation. Scientism does have major problems and I believe the biggest problem is that the Gospel is forgotten in the mix.

Isaiah 44: 6-8
6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
‘I am the first and I am the last,
And there is no God besides Me

Bill Nye: “We Came From Mars”

Bill Nye the pseudoscientist claims that the origins of life on earth came from Mars! Let’s think about that for a second. He denies that we came from Adam and Eve but coming from Mars is a better position? Let’s entertain that thought for a moment; Mars has an environment that Man cannot survive in let alone any living organism that has been yet to be discovered, and yet the makings of humanity came from that kind of situation? Also, if life was ever found on Mars, where would it have originated? Again “Life coming from Non-life”?

Oh how (pseudo)science fights God, at every turn and looks for Government Grants and outside funding!

Brian Mason Highly Recommended

I came across a very good show that you can call in to that airs on Sunday nights. You use “Google Hangouts” to hook up with them. Always a good watch and the show brings up great dialogue between Christians and atheists. The program is hosted by Tim Hurd and regular guests including Matt Slick from CARM.ORG Also available on
