“DEBUNKING FAITH BUSTERS”
Part 4B “What About Science – Hasn’t science proven Christianity to be untrue & outdated?”
INTRO: It’s a misconception that science and faith are almost always at odds with each other. God created everything (Gen. 1:1, 26-28; Rom. 1:20-25). Many of today’s top thinkers believe in Intelligent Design and consider atheism a mockery. Often people’s beliefs are a result of their philosophy, not the evidence.
Scientific Proof – Proves things through repeatable experiments, but not equipped for the spiritual dimension.
Legal-Historical Proof – Proves things that can’t be proven scientifically (anything about a person or event in history) by examining oral & written testimony and exhibits.
I. WHAT ABOUT MIRACLES?
- They can’t be proven or disproven scientifically.
- If there’s a Creator God, miracles are possible!
II. WHAT ABOUT THE AGE OF THE EARTH?
- The age of the earth can’t be proven scientifically.
- The rate at which the earth has aged can’t be proven.
- Couldn’t God have created an earth that already appeared to be quite old?
III. WHAT ABOUT EVOLUTION?
- Evolution can’t be proven scientifically and lacks compelling evidence.
- There’s no solid evidence in the fossil record of a species eventually evolving into another species.
- Many of today’s scientists have rejected evolution.
IV. FOUR EVIDENCES FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD:
- The Universe’s Existence (points to Intelligent Design).
- The Universe’s Complexity (to support life).
- The Existence of Objective Moral Values.
- The Possibility of Experiencing God Immediately (John 17:3; Rom. 8:16; Jer. 29:13).
CONCLUSION: Knowing God personally and seeing Him change lives is the greatest evidence & miracle of all!
