Debunking Faith Busters (Part 4B: What About Science?)

“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Part 4B “What About Science – Hasn’t science proven Christianity to be untrue & outdated?”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?

  1. They can’t be proven or disproven scientifically.
  2. If there’s a Creator God, miracles are possible!

II. WHAT ABOUT THE AGE OF THE EARTH?

  1. The age of the earth can’t be proven scientifically.
  2. The rate at which the earth has aged can’t be proven.
  3. Couldn’t God have created an earth that already appeared to be quite old?

III. WHAT ABOUT EVOLUTION?

  1. Evolution can’t be proven scientifically and lacks compelling evidence.
  2. There’s no solid evidence in the fossil record of a species eventually evolving into another species.
  3. Many of today’s scientists have rejected evolution.

IV. FOUR EVIDENCES FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD:

  1. The Universe’s Existence (points to Intelligent Design).
  2. The Universe’s Complexity (to support life).
  3. The Existence of Objective Moral Values.
  4. 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!
