God Trumps Science

‘For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the Power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’~(1 Corinthians 1:18-19 KJV)
‘But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.’                ~(1 Corinthians 1:27-29KJV)

Holy Scripture declares God has chosen foolish, weak, base, and despised things of the world to confound those who think they are wise.  If mankind had only read and heeded God’s Holy Word, today we would have been so far advanced in our knowledge of science, medical, biology, astronomy, history, archaeology, and all things in our world.

Science: the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world
The Bible says:
• ‘He (God) stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.’ (Job 26:7)
>Science did not discover the earth hangs upon nothing until the 17th century. It was the development of the telescope when science could confirm what God already knew.
The Bible says:
• ‘Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.’ (Hebrews 11:3)
Science only discovered in recent years that everything we see is composed of things that we cannot see, invisible atoms. In the 20th century, Dr. Leon Max Lederman wrote a book called The God Particle regarding his research, however, Dr. Lederman is an atheist.
The Bible says:
• ‘ It is He (God) that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.’ (Isaiah 40:22)
Science first indicated the world might be round by Aristotle in his book On the Heavens, (350BC) but it was thousands of years later when Christopher Columbus was inspired by the Holy Scriptures to sail around the world. In 1492 was his famous vovage, but years earlier was his dream.
The Bible says:
• ‘The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.’ (Psalm 8:8)
Science ‘father of oceanography’ Matthew Maury took God’s Word and set out to find the paths of the seas and thus discovered warm/cold continental currents.
The Bible says:
• God asked Job…”Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?” (Job 38:35)
Science did not discover that light could be sent and then manifest itself in speech until 1864 by British scientist James Clerk Maxwell.
The Bible says:
• “Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but My Salvation shall be for ever, and My Righteousness shall not be abolished.” (Isaiah 51:6)
• Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of Thy Hands. They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall be changed. (Psalm 102:25-26)
• They shall perish; but Thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; (Hebrews 1:11)
Science only discovered recently about The Second Law of Thermodynamics (Law of Increased Entropy) in the 19th century. The theological implications are obvious. NASA Astronomer Robert Jastrow commented on these implications when he said, "Theologians generally are delighted with the proof that the universe had a beginning, but astronomers are curiously upset. It turns out that the scientist behaves the way the rest of us do when our beliefs are in conflict with the evidence." (Robert Jastrow, God and the Astronomers, 1978, p. 16.) 

Jastrow went on to say, "For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries." (God and the Astronomers, p. 116.) It seems the Cosmic Egg that was the birth of our universe logically requires a Cosmic Chicken...
The Bible says:
• All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. (Ecclesiastes 1:7)
• If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. (Ecclesiastes 11:3)
• It is He that buildeth His stories in the heavens, and hath founded His troop in the earth; He that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is His Name. (Amos 9:6)
Science did not understand the complete water cycle fully until the 17th century.  Thousands of years before the discoveries of Pierre Perrault (1608-1680), Edme Mariotte (1620-1684), Edmund Halley (1656-1742) and others, God had already told us in His Holy Word.
The Bible says:
• Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. (Genesis 2:1)
Science’s First Law of Thermodynamics (Law of the Conservation of Energy/Mass) states that neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed. “If one proceeds directly and straightforwardly in this matter, without being deflected by a fear of incurring the wrath of scientific opinion, one arrives at the conclusion that biomaterials with their amazing measure or order must be the outcome of Intelligent Design. No other possibility I have been able to think of...” Hoyle, Fred, Evolution from Space, Omni Lecture, Royal Institution, London, 12 January 1982; Evolution from Space (1982) pp. 27–28 ISBN 0-89490-083-8; Evolution from Space: A Theory of Cosmic Creationism (1984) ISBN 0-671-49263-2
The Bible says:
• God gave Noah instructions and dimensions to build the ark. (Genesis 6)
Science of shipbuilding in 1609 at Hoorn, in Holland, the Netherlandish Mennonite, P. Jansen, produced a vessel after the pattern of the ark, only smaller, whereby he proved it was well adapted for floating, and would carry a cargo greater by one-third than any other form of like cubical content” (J.P. Lange, A Commentary). It revolutionized shipbuilding. By 1900 every large vessel on the high seas was definitely inclined toward the proportions of Noah’s ark (as verified by “Lloyd’s Register of Shipping,” The World Almanac). Later, ships were built longer for speed, a matter of no concern to Noah.
The Bible says:
• The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to His circuits. (Ecclesiastes 1:6)
Science calls it the Coriolis effect in which an inertial force described by the 19th-century French engineer-mathematician Gustave-Gaspard Coriolis in 1835. Coriolis showed that, if the ordinary Newtonian laws of motion of bodies are to be used in a rotating frame of reference, an inertial force--acting to the right of the direction of body motion for counterclockwise rotation of the reference frame or to the left for clockwise rotation--must be included in the equations of motion.
The Bible says:
• To make the weight for the winds; and He weigheth the waters by measure. (Job 28:25)
>Science attributes “Galileo—his Life and Work”, by J. J. Fahie, that Galileo’s way of determining the specific gravity of the air was first described in his letter to Baliani dated March 12, 1613. In the latest edition of “Essais de Jean Rey” an attempt was made to give him credit, however, Rey’s “Essais” was not published until the year 1630.
The Bible says:
• God asked Job, “Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place; That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment. (Job 38:12-14)
In Science It was not until the 16th century that a fully predictive mathematical model of a heliocentric system was presented, by the Renaissance mathematician, astronomer, and Catholic cleric Nicolaus Copernicus, leading to the Copernican Revolution. In the following century, Johannes Kepler elaborated upon and expanded this model to include elliptical orbits, and supporting observations made using a telescope were presented by Galileo Galilei. With the observations of William Herschel, Friedrich Bessel, and others, astronomers realized that the sun was not the center of the universe as heliocentric at the time of Copernicus had supposed. By the 1920s Edwin Hubble had shown that it was part of a galaxy (the Milky Way) that was only one of many billions.
The Bible says:
• God asked Job, “Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?” (Job 38:16)
Science discovered in 1977 a black smoker or sea vent, which is a type of hydrothermal vent found on the seabed, typically in the abyssal and hadal zones. They appear as black, chimney-like structures that emit a cloud of black material. Black smokers typically emit particles with high levels of sulfur-bearing minerals, or sulfides. Black smokers are formed in fields hundreds of meters wide when superheated water from below Earth's crust comes through the ocean floor. This water is rich in dissolved minerals from the crust, most notably sulfides. When it comes in contact with cold ocean water, many minerals precipitate, forming a black, chimney-like structure around each vent. The deposited metal sulfides can become massive sulfide ore deposits in time.
The Bible says:
• God asked Job, “ By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?” (Job 38:24)
Science shows our modern understanding of light and color begins with Isaac Newton (1642-1726) and a series of experiments that he publishes in 1672. He is the first to understand the rainbow — he refracts white light with a prism, resolving it into its component colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. Newton set up a prism near his window, and projected a beautiful spectrum 22 feet onto the far wall. Further, to prove that the prism was not coloring the light, he refracted the light back together.
The Bible says:
• God asked Job, “ Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,” (Job 38:19)
Science, in spite of theoretical and experimental advances in the first half of the 19th century that established the wave properties of light, the nature of light was not yet revealed—the identity of the wave oscillations remained a mystery. This situation dramatically changed in the 1860s when the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, in a watershed theoretical treatment, unified the fields of electricity, magnetism, and optics. In his formulation of electromagnetism, Maxwell described light as a propagating wave of electric and magnetic fields. More generally, he predicted the existence of electromagnetic radiation: coupled electric and magnetic fields traveling as waves at a speed equal to the known speed of light. (Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a “way”.  In empty space this speed is approx. 186,000 miles per second.
The Bible says:
• Behold now Behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: He that made him can make His sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares. (Job 40:15-24)
(Characteristics of this huge animal: 1) the largest of all creatures God made; 2) was plant-eating (herbivorous); 3) it’s strength was in its hips; 3) it’s tail was as large as a tree; 4) it had strong bones; 5) lived among the trees; 6) drank massive amounts of water; 7) was not disturbed by a raging river; 8) it’s eyes are all seeing on alert; and 9) it’s nose pierces through any snare. NOTE: ‘He that made him can make His sword to approach unto him’ meaning God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made to become extinct.)
Science’s closest characterization would be the dinosaurs, or possibly the Sauropoda.  This is a lizard-hipped dinosaur. With long neck, long tail, and thick-pillar like legs.
Science’s list of dinosaurs contains 1441 names, of which approximately 1101 are considered either valid dinosaur genera or nomina dubia. (doubtful-plural).
NOTE: By just taking a few of those listed:
Tyrannosaurus- named by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1905
Apatosaurus -named by Filla and Redman in 1994
Sauropoda-named by O.C. Marsh in 1878  
Albertosaurus first discovered in 1884
Daspletosaurus first discovered in 1921
Rapators first discovered in 1905
Ankylosaurs- named by Barnum Brown in 1908
Ceratopsian-Othniel Charles Marsh named in 1890  (possibly founded by John Bell Hatcher in 1888.)  Marsh and his many fossil hunters were able to uncover about 500 new species of fossil animals, which were all named later by Marsh himself.  Hatcher was an assistant to March until 1893.
For a list of dinosaur:
As you can see from the few samples, all of these dinosaurs were found and/or named in the 19th and 20th centuries, which is suspect of their authenticity.
The Bible says:
• And the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. (Genesis 2:18-20)
According to God’s Holy Word, Adam named every beast, every fowl, all cattle and every living creature.  So where did the dinosaurs come from??

NOTE:This is part 1 of GOD Trumps Science.  If Jesus tarries, I hope to have more later.  The information in this writing is attributed to GOD’S HOLY WORD and Ray Comfort’s Scientific Facts in the Bible.  Without those two this would not have been possible.
