Science means “knowledge”, and “true science” always agrees with the observable evidence. Scientific research continues to unfold the wonders and mysteries of creation. But there is seven incredible creation facts that cannot be denied as true science.
The universe had a beginning (Genesis 1:1; Hebrews 1:10-12). starting with the studies of Albert Einstein in the early 1900’s and continuing today, science has confirmed the biblical view that the universe had a beginning.
The first three verses of Genesis accurately express all known aspects of the creation (Genesis 1:1-3). Science expresses the universe in terms of, time, space, matter, and energy. In Genesis chapter one we read, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1). In verse three of Genesis chapter one we see that God created light. “Let there be light”, “In the beginning (time), heaven (space), earth (matter), and light (energy) was created by God and not by random chance. No other origin of the universe agrees with this observable evidence.
The earth is spherical (Isaiah 40:22). It revolves on its axis (Luke 17:34-36) and was designed for biological life (Isaiah 45:18). Scientists have , discovered that the most fundamental characteristics of our earth are so finely tuned that if just one of them were slightly different, life as we know it could not exist.
The Bible states that God created life according to “kinds” (Genesis 1:24). The fact God distinguishes “kinds”, agrees with what scientists observe namely that there are horizontal genetic boundaries beyond which life cannot vary. Life produces after its own kind. Dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats, lilies produce lilies. Never have we witnessed one kind changing into another kind. Variation of kinds have been observed, just look at all the dog breeds there are. But they all are still dogs.
The First Law of Thermodynamics established (Genesis 2:1-2). The law states that the total quantity of energy and matter in the universe is constant. One form of energy or matter may be converted into another, but the total quantity always remains the same. Therefore the creation is “finished”, exactly as God said way back in Genesis.
The universe is expanding (Job 9:8; Isaiah 42:5; Jeremiah 51:15; Zechariah 12:1). Repeatedly God declares that He stretches out the heavens. During the early 20th century most scientists (including Einstein) believed the universe was static. Others believed it should have collapsed due to gravity. Then in 1929, astronomer Edwin Hubble showed that distant galaxies were receding from the earth, and the further away they were, the faster they were moving. This discovery revolutionized the field of astronomy. Einstein admitted his mistake, and today most astronomers agree with what the Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ told us a thousands of years ago, that the universe is expanding!
The Second Law of Thermodynamics (entropy) explained (Psalm 102:25-26). This law states that everything in the universe is running down, deteriorating constantly becoming less and less orderly. Entropy (disorder) entered when mankind rebelled against God, resulting in a curse on creation (Genesis 3:17; Romans 8:20-22). Historically most people believed the universe was unchangeable. Yet modern science verifies that the universe is growing old like a garment (Hebrews 1:11).
These facts were penned centuries before they were discovered by man. Scientific foreknowledge found only in the Bible offers one more piece to the collective proof that the Bible is truly the inspired Word of the Creator. Creation is true science!
