The confusion arises with the word "theory."
You can use the word to mean a sort of guess, a haphazard, shooting-in-the-dark hypothesis.
And that is not what I implied.
But scientific theories are definitely not these sorts of "guesses."Ã‚Â Have you ever heard of Einstein's theory of relativity?Ã‚Â Would you say e=mc2 is a haphazard hypothesis?
That's not the problem.
And you're right, the theory of evolution is theoretically falsifiable.Ã‚Â Unfortunately for the creationist, as scientists around the world make more and more discoveries in many different fields, the evidence keeps stacking up in favor of evolution.
Now you have hit the problem. You imply falsifiability, then in the same sentence imply that it's not falsifiable. Stacking of the "same" evidence proves nothing more to a point. It only points to where "that" evidence leads. If it leads to the same conclusions because it's the same evidence. It does not prove evolution more. It just reaffirms what you already know (concluded). But because everything you do has to be falsifiable, you can still be wrong, right? Or will you envoke the mountains of evidence next to imply that it's not?
What I'm trying to get at, is that the mountains of evidence you refer to would be like me taking several books of the Bible and stacking them. Stacking them until they become a mountain. It's all the same type of evidence, and because I stacked it. Does it make the evidence more convincing? Does it make God more provable? Does it make an implied absolute? Does it make God a true fact? No?
Neither does stacking your evidence and claiming the same thing.
Now, if God were God. Then His book would have God knowledge right?To create a universe, science already knows that you need 3 things. Time, space, and matter:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
1) In the begining = time.
2) Heaven = space.
3) Earth = matter.
Only a Creator can start the formula for a creation from a basic beginning format like this. How does a book written in a time that no one even knew what was in space, know exactly the three things basically needed to create a universe?He would have knowledge of that time that no one else had:
Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
No one had peered into space yet. No one knew that the light would be signs for seasons days and years. Some even thought that the things in space travelled around the earth. Which is feasible if all you can observe is what you see on the surface of earth. And no one knew the earth's orbit around the second created light (the sun) would cause the signs for seasons and years.You might ask: Where did the first light come from?
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon
, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Same exact situation in creation. No sun, no moon, and the light came from God. And the substance of the light was Christ (lamb), not photons. So no sun needed.Can that light support life?
Revelation: 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it:
and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
People walked and lived in that type of light. So plants etc... are not going to freeze until the sun is created. You see, if atheists were no so bent on proving the Bible wrong. They just might have answers for such questions. But if you deem something already wrong, then why would you need or even want these answers?Why was the first light divided?
God's light has no darkness which means darkness (shadows) has to be added before it can exist. Once added, it has to be separated. The separation created night and day.
Revelation 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Having knowledge of things that no one could obtain at the time the book was written. Means that someone could peer into space. But it was no one on this planet.
So how and where does such knowledge come from and how is it obtained?
