Science In the Bible 1 Fall 2015 Part 5



"Pro-choice" responses - Some defenders of abortion will concede the scientific proofs but will argue that the entity in the womb is still not, or not yet, a "person."

"Not a person" is a decidedly unscientific argument: it has nothing to do with science and everything to do with someone's own moral or political philosophy, though that someone may not readily admit it. Here is a good time to recite the scientific proofs, and maybe make a philosophical point of your own: We're either persons or property; and even the staunchest abortion defender will be reluctant to call a human child a piece of property.[

Others may suggest "humanness" depends on something spiritual, like infusion of a soul, but to argue there is no soul until birth or some other time is, by definition, to argue something incapable of proof. Another good time to recite the scientific proofs.

A brief word about the politicization of the definition of "pregnancy." While the science on when life begins is clear, some still claim that "pregnancy" doesn't begin until the embryo implants itself in the lining of the uterine wall, which occurs about a week later. Why? Politics and profit.

If the science on when life begins is clear, why do some organizations claim that "pregnancy" doesn't begin until a week later, at
implantation? The answer: politics and profit.

Acceptance of an implantation-based definition of "pregnancy" would allow abortion providers to mischaracterize pills and technologies that work after conception but before implantation as "contraception," making them potentially less subject to regulation and certainly more accept-able and attractive to consumers. Indeed, two institutes who support legalized abortion have pushed for this type of pregnancy re-definition for decades: the Guttmacher Institute (the abortion research institute originally established by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

If your interlocutor raises this issue, point out that: (1) the word "contraception" literally means "against conception," therefore something cannot be said to be a "contraceptive" if it allows conception, and (2) the fertilization-based definition of pregnancy is still the predominant definition in medical dictionaries today.”

Where do aborted babies go?  Evidence from Scripture seems to indicate they go to heaven.  God has their form in a book, being yet
unformed fully.  But that’s a discussion for another class.

Different Models of Creation

-    Just because someone says they are a Creationists, they don’t necessarily mean the same thing. 
There are basically 2 types of Creationism:  Old Earth and Young Earth.  Here are some sub-modalities within each.  Both types are many
times lumped together under the phrase “Intelligent Design”, though many try to make that an Old Earth only term.

Old Earth Models 

1)    Theistic Evolution – This is basically just a worldly view of science, but says God guided it.

2)    The Gap View – That between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 there is an undetermined gap of time, up to  billions of years.  Many that
hold this view, also believe that there were a vast world before the current creation.  This world was destroyed by what is termed the
“devil’s flood”.  It refers, many times at great length to pre-Adamite civilizations.  They would also say this is where and when Dinosaurs lived, and also megalithic structures of seemingly impossible size for ancient man.

3)    Progressive Creationism – This promoted by Hugh Ross.  He has some influence due to his writing and TV Ministry.  He would
try and bridge the gap between Theistic Evolution and Intelligent Design.  He would say that humanoids existed, but Adam and Eve were the first with souls.  He would deny a universal Flood as well.  It is in reality just another form of Theistic Evolution. 

Young Earth Models of Creation:

1)    6 Indeterminate “Days” of Creation.  This can also lead to old earth Creationism.

2)    Each Day of Creation was 7,000 years.  This is young earth Creationism compared to Billions of years.  

3)    Each Creation Day was 1,000 years.

4)    Each Creation Day was a literal 24 hour day.  This is seemingly the most natural reading of Genesis 1.  Some that hold the Gap 
Theory would also hold to this view also. A phrase such as the evening and the morning were the 1st day etc. The fact of the
interdependence of life upon each other, such as man needs plant life and plant life needs man, bees need flower and vice versa; the half life of the earth’s magnetic field; the disentigration of the Sun and Saturn’s rings; the amount of meteor dust on the earth and the moon; Genetic degradation which is occurring rapidly; and many other observations from science would make this view the most consistent with the data available to us.     

Homosexualty 
     
Homosexuality is a sin.  It is one of the worst types of sin, and abomination against God.  The Bible is very clear about this.

As a matter of fact, Thomas Nelson and Zondervan are under a 70 million dollar lawsuit from a homosexual, claiming hate speech and mental duress.  This is as of July 2015.

This is also the reason immoral people feel the need to translate the Bible in a more pro-homosexual way,  because honest translations of Scripture identify homosexuality as a horrific sin.

Christian leaders and Rabbi’s have been falling prey to the homosexual lobby left and right.  Talk about being conformed to the world!
