Science knows just about everything, correct?
It seems that way.
While one can cite the now time-worn complaint about medical science and eggs (in one study, they’re unhealthy; in the next, they’re the opposite; and where’s the cure for the common cold?), all one has to do is look at the incredible number of organisms on earth, and more than that, their incredible complexity, to know the vaunted “laws” of evolution and natural selection are untenable.
Most scientific “laws,” in fact, can be seen as correct only in part. Even one of Einstein’s greatest equations is now undergoing tweaking, if not outright recalculation. One only has to view the graphic at the top to see the limits of our “laws.” They are now saying that there is an object in space ten million times brighter than the sun (!), a “fact” that, by the by, “defies physics.” The article says, “A bizarre ‘ultraluminous X-ray source’ shines millions of times brighter than the sun, breaking a physical law called the Eddington limit, a new study finds.”
Another “law.” Another study. Another contradiction.
Yes, science has done some remarkable things. Look at the precision of landing on the moon. Or medical technology. Or the internet.
And yet, look, in the face of the universe and its size, how very little we can touch and even less how little we grasp.
Oh, how often God must be amused, although perhaps not so amused at the level of atheism in the scientific community.
Ask the new computational wonder ChatGPT about those percentages and it says: “Several surveys have been conducted on the religious beliefs of scientists. One study published in 2009 in the journal ‘Nature’ surveyed scientists from various fields and found that 93% of them did not believe in a personal god. Another survey published in 2015 in the journal ‘social studies of science’ found that 60% of natural and social scientists in the United States did not believe in a god.”
