Atheistic science is an approach to science that clings to atheistic views of the universe and life, at the complete exclusion of Biblical scientific foreknowledge and non-materialistic phenomena. The hallmark of atheistic science is how it clings to materialistic theories and rejects logic and experimental observations that contradict the atheistic theories. See also: Atheism and science
Scientific knowledge is gathered through observation and experimentation. Data is then interpreted and explained by theories. Some people interpret data while keeping Biblical teachings in mind. Other people build theories through mathematical models and equations. Yet, other scientists do both.
The people who adopt theories without regard to the Bible practice atheistic science. Those theories may result in equations that fit the known data, but when the equations are extrapolated beyond what can be observed could lead to absurd results. Because man did not record data from the start of the universe, nor can man observe data from the far reaches of the universe, man will never have complete answers to all scientific questions. In the absence of direct observation, man must either interpret the Bible to inform his beliefs or rely on theoretical calculation that can extrapolate data to absurd extremes.
Examples of absurd beliefs of atheistic scientists:
- that remarkable migration by butterflies and birds can somehow be explained by magnetism
- that there are many "multiple universes" that simultaneously exist
- that time travel can occur through wormholes in the universe
- that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists outside of Earth
- that massive "black holes" exist in tiny spaces, from which not even light can escape
- that unseen "dark matter" permeates the universe
- that the universe is really comprised of oscillating strings, which may be super tiny
Uncertainty and entropy
Atheistic science downplays or denies the central role played by uncertainty (quantum mechanics) in the physical world. For a half-century, some scientists even refused to accept the truth of quantum mechanics. Another characteristic of atheistic science is to deny the full meaning of the Second Law of Thermodynamics and deny the impossibility of a perpetual motion machine.
Atheistic science is riddled with self-contradictions. A few examples are:
- atheistic science denies the existence of the unseen, while simultaneously admitting that the entire universe began from the unseen.
- atheistic science promotes the implausible existence of black holes with a religious fervor. Disproved by quantum mechanics, black holes have been discredited most recently by Stephen Hawking, but atheistic science soldiers on in denial of basic logic.
- atheistic science has no plausible theory for the origin of the Moon, and the lunar landing disproved all of its prior theories.
Pretended Completeness of Scientific Understanding
Isaac Newton, a devout Christian, knew that man only understood a small fraction of possible knowledge. But atheistic science pretends, implausibly, that it has a near-completeness of scientific understanding of the world. Its view is disproven by numerous counterexamples to its theories.
