Most Scientists Don’t Follow Christ

A scientist can follow a scientific method that doesn’t lean on human understanding but that looks to God for His knowledge and wisdom.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Godly Scientific Method

  • The fear (awe and deep respect) for God is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.
  • Confess the fallen nature of human minds.
  • Ask God for direction and wait for God’s answer.
  • Do background research according to God’s leading.
  • Ask God to help understand the observations. Wait for God’s revelation rather than just making up a hypothesis.
  • If God seems to indicate an experiment, experiment. If God seems to indicate further research, return to step 3.
  • Record the results without bias.
  • Analyze the data without assumptions by asking God to guide into sound thinking.
  • Seek God while using true premises and sound reasoning to conclude.
  • As much as possible, communicate results fully and without bias or dogmatism.
  • Look to God for correction and further revelation.

These steps will vary widely depending on the Holy Spirit’s leading. Scientists can use these steps or this method. However, those who study the Bible can also use this method. Any decision-maker can use this method. God revealed something about the scientific method to godly scientists, but He still has much to teach humanity about the scientific method. Besides, God uses science to reveal Himself and His creation to humanity. To put it another way, God uses scientific observation to reveal reality to anyone who’ll listen to Him. In mercy, He even reveals reality to those who refuse to acknowledge Him or thank Him.

Methodological Naturalism

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Ungodly Scientific Method

  • Ask a question biased by ungodliness.
  • Do background research biased by ungodliness.
  • Construct a hypothesis biased by ungodliness.
  • Test the hypothesis by experimenting, and allow ungodly bias to guide the experiment.
  • Record the results biased by ungodliness.
  • Interpret the data biased by ungodliness.
  • Draw a conclusion biased by ungodliness.
  • Communicate the results biased by ungodliness.

Notice how the steps follow a mindset of ungodliness that guides each step in the process. Though, as a general rule, scientists don’t use the word “ungodliness.” They use a word like “secular,” “naturalistic,” “materialistic,” or “mainstream” instead. They use these words instead of the word “ungodliness” to hide the bias. In fact, the terms “methodological naturalism” or “scientific naturalism” are the most widespread terms used to hide the bias toward ungodliness.

Ontic Fallacy

God gave us scientific method, but we must be careful that we don’t begin to worship God’s gifts rather than worshiping God. The Bible is without error. The creation is what it is without error. There are no conflicts between the Bible and the creation. However, humans automatically process thoughts about the Bible and the creation, and human bias (everyone has it) can influence our thinking. For instance, many scientists start from a bias that presupposes that God does nothing, the earth is billions of years old, and the stories of evolutionism happened.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Scientific Method based on the Ontic Fallacy

Ask a question without any assumption or preconception.

Do background research without any assumption or preconception.

Construct a hypothesis without any assumption or preconception.

Test the hypothesis by experimenting without any error, assumption, or preconception.

Record the results without any human bias or error.

Interpret the data without any assumption or preconception.

Conclude using sound deductive reasoning and zero assumptions.

Communicate the results fully, without any bias.

Some thinkers imagine that these steps are exactly the way scientists do science, and some of these thinkers imagine that scientists don’t assume anything. They feel that scientists have no biases. There’s a problem. Totally objective and error-free science doesn’t happen since no one can get outside of himself or herself, and all humans have biases based on worldviews. Humans make assumptions and think that the assumptions are part of reality. Without divine revelation, no one can know that a premise is true. Without a true premise, no one can reason rationally. So no one can reason rationally without divine revelation.

God Created Science

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

God has revealed these three basic truths needed for science:

  • laws of logic
  • mathematical laws
  • the regularity of nature

These three basic truths make it possible to do science and the laws of logic, mathematical laws, and the regularity of nature come from God. God reveals them, and early Bible-believing scientists established the scientific method using these revelations, but since ungodly thinkers refuse to acknowledge God, they have to assume these three basic truths, or they can’t do science. (http://creation.com/biblical-roots-of-modern-science)

 While some people credit Sir Francis Bacon with inventing the scientific method, it was actually God Who originally revealed some things about the scientific method. And God continues to reveal reality using His scientific method. But sadly, ungodly people have distorted the scientific method. As a result, we can become confused about what’s known and what’s not known. Different scientists use different methods, and students believe all sorts of things about the scientific method. We’ll go over several scientific methods starting with an impossible scientific method. And though scientists rarely follow a numbered series of steps, for the sake of clarity, we showed the steps in a numbered order.

Knowledge of Truth

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

The method of Francis Bacon mentions proof, and proof indicates a true premise, which is only available by divine revelation. Consequently, everywhere we try to find true knowledge, we run into the same need for God. Of course, God uses intuition and observation to reveal reality to humanity. Because of God’s goodness, science has provided practical solutions. However, science took the credit. But God gives any knowledge of truth that we gain through the methods of science even if scientists who receive this knowledge deny that God gave it.

Deductions Requires Truth

Deduction reasons to true conclusions with true premises and valid form. The trouble is getting the true premise as a starting point for reasoning.

Induction is the only way to provide true premises through intuition.

Information must come from somewhere.

  • God (truth)
  • human worldview (deception)
  • demonic influence (deception)

Truth only comes from God.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Induction is a form of reasoning distinct from deduction. Deduction can lead to knowledge of truth since, with true premises and valid form, the conclusion must be true. Deduction doesn’t add any information to the premises during reasoning. Deduction never produces new information. However, induction adds information to the premises through intuition. Since information must come from somewhere, there must be a source for this information coming through intuition. Here, we again have three sources for the information available through intuition: God, the human worldview, or demonic influence. Godless scientists can’t know which of these three provide the information. So godless induction only hints at a direction for investigation or suggests a hypothesis. When scientists attempt to use the human mind to reason beyond what they observe, the result is uncertain. They must add made-up stuff to get beyond what they observe. That’s why scientists observing the same created world infer radically different conclusions from the same observations.

Scientific Methods

Science is a gift from God. Humans often turn God’s gifts into idols and worship them and depend on them. Much of science has gone wild and left the foundation of truth because of the philosophy of naturalism. Taking that philosophy as an axiom, scientists come up with unworkable and unprofitable ideas. Darwin brought us a false “science” called evolutionism that continued a godless trend and has led to the current craziness we now see all around us.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Scientific Methods

“What passes for scientific methodology is a misrepresentation of what scientists do or ought to do.” ~ P. B. Medawar, Induction and Intuition in Scientific Thought

Contrary to popular belief, there’s no agreement on a single scientific method among philosophers of science, and most scientists could care less about the philosophy of science. If we search the Internet, we find several systems for scientific method, and many of the websites break scientific methods into distinct steps. In general, scientists don’t work that way.

“The definition of ‘science’ has haunted philosophers of science in the 20th century. The approach of Bacon, who is considered the founder of the scientific method, was pretty straightforward: observation → induction → hypothesis → test hypothesis by experiment → proof/disproof → knowledge.” ~ http://creation.com/its-not-science

Pragmatic Science

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

So we see that something strange has happened in the scientific community, but science has never been necessarily accurate even though it’s had a reputation for accuracy. Scientists made pragmatic gains, and those pragmatic gains provided a reputation for accuracy and knowledge. However, pragmatic gains can’t establish truth.

Humans Are Humans–Even Scientists

We shouldn’t be surprised that humans are humans. Even scientists are humans. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s not that they decide to be dishonest. It’s human nature. Everyone has a perspective. Everyone has an inner paradigm, a way they think reality is. Sometimes, we even call this inner fake-reality “your reality.” I’ve heard it called, “your truth.” It’s a complete inner fake-reality that seems more real than real reality. Everyone has one.

It’s also human nature to go with the flow. Even if we disagree, we’re uncomfortable being the only one making waves. We go along. We insert the group-held fake-reality into our own fake-reality. If mechanisms of coercion exist within the group, that heightens our motivation to shut up and fit in.

A personal fake-reality is powerful for filtering our perceptions. Whatever is outside the bounds of our fake-realities seems, to each of us, crazy, insane, and unreal. Changing fake-realities generally requires a powerful experience. Group-held fake-realities are much harder to change than personal fake-realities.

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Scientific Bias in Peer Review

Many problems exist with the way that scientists currently do science. And these problems aren’t surprising since scientists are humans, and humans make mistakes. Just like everyone else, scientists sometimes make honest mistakes and sometimes commit outright fraud. Sadly, the peer review process isn’t effectively exposing either of these.

Outright fraud:

Report only the desired results.

Don’t report unwanted results.

Knowingly falsify data.

Misuse statistics.

Choose only methods that will yield the desired result.

Work the problem backward from the desired solution, and make the right assumptions (or tell the right stories) to make it appear that the observations support the target solution.

Adjust numbers to fit the desired result.

Stop checking or retesting once the desired result is achieved.

The system is rigged to protect the status quo.

Those who are loyal to the status quo also control the funding.

Those who are loyal to the status quo control the peer review bodies, in effect, censoring divergent viewpoints.

The peer review process effectively stops those who don’t conform.

Godless politicians have loaded the courts with judges who protect the established system.

Those who are loyal to the status quo use pressure and coercion against those who don’t buy in.

Independent thinkers risk their careers.

The system encourages confirmation bias.

It appears that several forces promote scientific bias. Sometimes, the money motive is more important than reality. For example, scientists make decisions to make sure they keep their funding. Since much of this funding comes from the government, science has become political. Also, personal pride plays a huge role, and personal biases against morality or God come into play. Since these political considerations favor certain desired results, the system is designed to bring pressure to bear against anyone who bucks the system.

Ecological Alarmism

<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>

Politics and Science

Politicians and those with grand schemes for the world use pseudoscience to advance their political goals. Despite the best efforts of those in power, God arranges for the exposure of these plots sometimes, though we can’t know anything that God hasn’t exposed. Ecological alarmism is one area of pseudoscience in which politics drives the claims. Here we’ve seen scheming exposed through emails, but the guilty parties go without punishment, and the controllers of the media make sure to do damage-control whenever God exposes the dishonesty. Powerful gate-keepers punish whistle-blowers and ridicule sincere scientists who point out the shakiness of the science.
