Greg Koukl debated Michael Shermer on Hugh Hewitt's radio program. These are Greg's debate prep notes.
Stephen Jay Gould, evolution's popular icon from Harvard, has fired his latest salvo against creation in his new book, Rocks of Ages. He continues to advance the idea that the term "creation science" is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms. There are even some Christian thinkers who agree with him. Creation, they suggest, is theological. Science is empirical. Religion and science, like oil and water, don't mix. They represent two entirely different "magisteriums," in Gould's words. Science is the domain of fact and reason. Religion is the domain of belief and faith.
What's at heart here is not so much science and facts, but a philosophy of doing science which says that you can only talk about things which are scientific and you must remove any reference to a supernatural force whatsoever.
Does it really matter whether the biblical miracles actually happened? If you say it doesn't, you lose something very important. Can we still believe in miracles? That's the question asked in an article in Time magazine, from April 10, 1995. I was very happy when I read this article because it finally gives a balanced treatment. They interviewed people from a number of different perspectives that not only gave their point of view, particularly the conservative point of view, but gave their reasons.
You can huff and puff but you can’t blow this house down. Christianity is a system bolted down to reality.
Recent studies suggest that animals are capable of rudimentary forms of moral behavior. God isn't the source of morality, evolutionists say; Mother Nature is. The evolutionary answer, though, does not explain morality; it denies it. Bongo is a chimp. He's being punished by other members of the chimpanzee band for not sharing his bananas. Bongo is selfish. Bad Bongo. Moral rule: Chimps shouldn't be selfish.
Can you give a good definition of biblical faith? How does it relate to science?
If science can't even disprove the existence of unicorns, how can it disprove the existence of God? I often hear the comment, "Science has proved there is no God." Don't ever be bullied by such a statement. Science is completely incapable of proving such a thing.
Quantum physics. Ugh. The term itself is enough to make grown men weep and send theologians scurrying. It can also send chills up the spine of the Christian marshalling evidence from science for the existence of God.
In May of this year, a scientific paper was released that fanned the flames of the evolution/intelligent design debate to new intensity. It documented the discovery of an elegantly structured, beautifully preserved fossil of a haplorrhine, an ancient primate thought to be ancestor to both modern-day lemurs and “higher” primates, including human beings.
