Science and Pseudoscience


I am worried that the word “science” has lost all its meaning as far as the general public is concerned.  When creationist books come in this guise, it isn’t hard to imagine why their propaganda has been so successful.

  • Science: Species evolved because the evidence says so.
  • Pseudoscience: Species did not evolve because evolution has never been observed, there are no transitional fossils, I am not related to a monkey, and God created man in his own image; Christianity is a worldview.
     
  • Science: The earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old because the evidence says so.
  • Pseudoscience: The earth is 6,000 years old because the Bible says so, and Christianity is a worldview.
     
  • Science: The earth and other planets revolve around the sun because the evidence says so.
  • Pseudoscience: The sun revolves around the earth because the Bible says so, and Christianity is a worldview.
