Man Needed a Reason

Man, who needed a purpose, a mission, to keep him alive, had one. He could be . . . God’s co-worker . . . My purpose alone must be God’s purpose . . . As I worked on projects which fulfilled a real human need; forces were working through me which amazed me. I would often go to sleep with an apparently insoluble problem. When I woke, the answer was there. Why, then, should we who believe in Christ be so surprised at what God can do with a willing man in a laboratory? Some things must be baffling to the critic who has never been born again. ~ George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver’s Scientific Method

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
The point of all these examples is to show that science exists outside of a formal scientific method, and God reveals through this method too since human rules don’t restrict God. Instead, He gives knowledge when He sees that it’s needed, and He supplies this knowledge in the way that He chooses to supply it.

George Washington Carver

Consider George Washington Carver’s scientific method:

“Man, who needed a purpose, a mission, to keep him alive, had one. He could be . . . God’s co-worker . . . My purpose alone must be God’s purpose . . . As I worked on projects which fulfilled a real human need; forces were working through me which amazed me. I would often go to sleep with an apparently insoluble problem. When I woke, the answer was there. Why, then, should we who believe in Christ be so surprised at what God can do with a willing man in a laboratory? Some things must be baffling to the critic who has never been born again.” ~ George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver used the scientific method of working as a partner with God. As Christians, we work as partners with Christ. So when the answer to a problem comes, we don’t take the credit; we give God the glory.

“God is going to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His. No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way of doing it are revealed to me. The method is revealed to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain, I would be helpless.” ~ George Washington Carver

From this quote, we see that George Washington Carver expected divine revelation in the laboratory, and he didn’t consider himself the source of any knowledge. As a result, he could do amazing things since he found true premises as God revealed the nature of the created world to him. Of course, ungodly persuaders aren’t happy with George Washington Carver’s method of doing science and predictably try to denigrate him and belittle the many scientific advances God accomplished through him.

God also reveals reality to those who refuse to acknowledge Him. However, without acknowledging God, they can’t have certainty about anything because, in a worldview without God, there’s no distinction between revelation and made-up stuff. As a result, everything becomes made-up stuff in such a worldview. This lack of discernment motivates ungodly thinkers to become dogmatic about the “made-up stuff” they like. It motivates them to oppose anything that they don’t like. They can’t know the difference between truth and error, so they believe in the stories of evolutionism with the same enthusiasm as they believe a real, material world exists.

“…if we do not take Christ seriously in our everyday life, all is a failure because it is an everyday affair.” ~ George Washington Carver

We now understand more fully why the human mind can’t work correctly without the presence of the Holy Spirit. So, we know why George Washington Carver walked with Jesus Christ every day, moment-by-moment. Because of this walk, God continually unveiled reality to George Washington Carver. And God is willing to unveil reality to every human being. We can have this relationship with Christ right now through Jesus Christ.

“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.” ~ George Washington Carver

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” ~ George Washington Carver

“My prayers seem to be more of an attitude than anything else. I indulge in very little lip service, but ask the Great Creator silently, daily, and often many times a day, to permit me to speak to Him through the three great kingdoms of the world which He has created—the animal, mineral, and vegetable kingdoms—to understand their relations to each other, and our relations to them and to the Great God who made all of us. I ask Him daily and often momently to give me wisdom, understanding, and bodily strength to do His will; hence I am asking and receiving all the time.” ~ George Washington Carver

Lest we think this revelation came to George Washington Carver only through observation and not through the Bible, we consider the following quote:

“The secret of my success? It is simple. It is found in the Bible.” ~ George Washington Carver

We need to remember that God reveals reality to both believers and unbelievers. For example, King Nebuchadnezzar was no believer, but he received revelation of the future in a dream. And Pharaoh wasn’t a believer, yet he received the revelation of coming events to save Egypt from famine. Both of them had to get the interpretation from a godly person, though.

We’ve already looked at several scientific breakthroughs that came in dreams. A naturalist might make up a naturalistic explanation for this inspiration. However, the naturalist is just making up a story and calling the story “an explanation.” Made-up stuff can be convincing, but it’s not a valid way to determine truth.

We’ve seen that scientists don’t always progress through planned experiments. For instance, we know that it’s not uncommon for a scientist to try to find out about one thing when God reveals something else. Of course, the human mind often twists God’s pure revelation, and when the human mind distorts pure revelation, we hear speculations like the big-bang-billions-of-years-no-Flood-molecules-to-humankind story. So, to avoid this distorted thinking, God commands us to acknowledge Him in all our ways rather than leaning on our brute-beast minds. When we acknowledge Him, He’ll direct our paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6) Though some won’t follow it, God provides this process for science, engineering, Bible-study, worship, finance, politics, marketing, and every avenue of life.

Scientific Discoveries in the Bible

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Scripture

Besides dreams and supposed accidents, here are some scientific discoveries God gave through Scripture:

  • Hygienic rules for health and medical safety
  • Dietary restrictions for health reasons
  • Restrictions limiting water supplies to safe sources
  • Quarantine of contagious diseases
  • Washing in running water when dealing with disease
  • More stars than we can count
  • The earth floating freely in space
  • Dangerous prescriptions forbidden
  • Spherical earth
  • Living organisms reproducing after the created kinds
  • The perfect dimensions of a ship or other water vessel
  • The water cycle
  • Springs in the oceans
  • Life in the blood
  • One race, the human race

Although scientists and culture originally rejected these biblical revelations, scientists later confirmed them by observation.

God is in Control

God reveals reality through science. Many scientific discoveries are chalked up to chance, but God revealed the reality that led to technology that works. This quote lists some discoveries that happened “by chance.” If the truth were known, almost all scientific “discoveries” happen as scientists stumble around trying one thing and then another. God is in control of it all.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
Accidentally?

From God’s view, nothing is accidental, for although God allows us to decide, He also reveals that He’s sovereign. And He allows us to experience the results of our decisions, but, in the end, He directs the results.

God Reveals Reality

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
Dreams
God uses dreams. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean all dreams come from God, but here are some things God has revealed through dreams:
Dmitri Mendeleev received the Periodic Table in a dream.
August Kekulé received the structure of benzene in a dream.
Srinivasa Ramanujan testified, “While asleep, I had an unusual experience. There was a red screen formed by flowing blood, as it were. I was observing it. Suddenly a hand began to write on the screen. I became all attention. That hand wrote a number of elliptic integrals. They stuck to my mind. As soon as I woke up, I committed them to writing.”
Otto Loewi received the details of an experiment to demonstrate how the body transmits nerve signals using chemical instructions.
Niels Bohr received the structure of the atom in a dream.
Elias Howe received the solution to the sewing machine in a dream.
Albert Einstein received the principle of relativity in a dream.

God Doesn’t Limit Himself

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
There’s no evidence that the scientific method is the most important way God reveals reality to humanity. Some people claim it is the most important way, but they can’t prove their claim. God doesn’t restrict Himself to the scientific method when He’s revealing reality and truth about the material world. For example, God has always used other ways to impart revelation. God imparts knowledge through intuition, dreams, or a word of knowledge. He sometimes intervenes in the scientific process.

Floating Abstraction Fallacy

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Sometimes, scientists think they’re testing the big-bang-billions-of-years-molecules-to-humankind story because they experiment and observe. But the story floats over the science. It floats over the experiments and the observations. Then they deceptively call the story “science.” It’s a floating abstraction fallacy. We can’t test either the ungodly story or the revealed account in the way we test a shelf design or an automotive design. However, we can test the revealed account spiritually by seeking God’s mind and allowing the Holy Spirit to teach us. On the other hand, we can’t repeatedly physically test and observe either of these.

Blurring the Line

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
Real science produces useful solutions and products, but there’s far too much science that produces nothing anyone could use. This science works differently from the science that allows us to make cars, airplanes, or cell phones. It only subverts minds and blurs the line between truth and conceptual dreams. Scientists make up stories about what they can’t observe, but they can’t use the stories to make a useful product. They tell stories about the distant past, the spiritual realm, or the human mind. However, ungodly scientists can’t possibly test those stories to see whether they’re true. They can’t test whether the big-bang-billions-of-years-molecules-to-humankind story happened. That story competes with the revealed Creation-Flood account that fits what we observe better than the godless story does.

Science of Imagination

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
God Uses the Scientific Method

Here we make a sharp distinction between helpful science and science that helps no one. One kind of science produces products and solutions. The other kind of science doesn’t. Godless stories and speculations don’t produce solutions to problems, nor do they create useful products. Since God revealed the scientific method, God reveals reality through the scientific method to anyone who’ll use this method. He inspires groups like Patterns of Evidence, ICR, CMI, and AIG so we can find out about His revelation. However, He never discredits the Bible with the scientific method as ungodly thinkers claim.

He doesn’t restrict this revelation to those who follow Christ. So the method works, but the problems enter if scientists distort the method. Ungodly science can only be pragmatic, so it’s not useful for making claims about reality but only for practical solutions. A scientist can do science without God, but the scientist is then living like a brute beast, incapable of rational thought. The ungodly scientist can make things that work, but can’t reason beyond that without God. Later, we find out that some of those practical solutions are destructive or dangerous. If we want examples of this problem, we only need to watch the ads on TV for class action suits against drug companies. Even when scientists observe and test in the present and apply the resulting discoveries in what appears to be a useful way, unexpected problems arise.

Evolutionist Presuppositions

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Evolutionistic Scientific Method

  • Adopt the group-held paradigm (evolutionism) as your paradigm or else your career dies.
  • Experiment and observe. [Experimentation and observation are the only parts of the evolutionistic scientific method with potential for knowing.]
  • Filter observations by the group-held paradigm.
  • Create assumptions that fit into the group-held paradigm.
  • Tell a story as a speculative explanation of the observations.
  • Make sure the story fits into the group-held paradigm.
  • Call the story a “scientific theory.”
  • Defend the group-held paradigm from any scrutiny.
  • Create just-so stories to explain away any evidence against the original group-held paradigm.
  • Call the just-so stories “evidence for the group-held paradigm.”
  • Continue to build and fortify the group-held paradigm.
  • Censor challenges to the group-held paradigm.

The scientist must endorse big bang, billions of years, no Genesis Flood, and molecules-to-humanity. The scientist must also endorse naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism.

Unfortunately, this paradigm regulates thought and limits science to the paradigm. And yet, some people proclaim the paradigm to be the backbone of science, especially medicine and biology. Only scientists who accept this paradigm can belong to the “real scientist club.” Historically, anyone who has questioned the paradigm has suffered, and Bill Nye referred to this closed-minded protectionism during his debate with Ken Ham. Bill rationalized a defense of this biased practice. According to Bill, those who question the group-held paradigm can’t be scientists, and he’s merely reflecting the attitude of the insiders of the scientific establishment with its censorship and message control.
