Science and The Creator
by Wayne Blank
"skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science"
Daniel is one of the major prophets of the Holy Bible, but also, as a true man of God, he sought to understand the magnificence of Creation. Hence Daniel was "cunning in knowledge and understanding science." Daniel was a man of God and a scientist, a true scientist, because he did not arrogantly ignore or deny all of the scientific evidence of how "nature" came into existence. Daniel wasn't a God-denying sham scientist.
King Solomon, a true man of God, one of the wisest men that ever lived, was a "scientist," in the sense that he appreciated and studied "nature" - all without arrogantly ignoring (ignorant is based on the word ignore) or denying the Creator of it. Solomon wasn't a God-denying sham scientist.
"And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom." (1 Kings 4:33-34 KJV)
The Holy Bible is in fact filled with science, all of the sciences. Examples:
"Look now toward heaven [see the Fact Finder question below], and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them" (Genesis 15:5 KJV)
"a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass" (Deuteronomy 8:9 KJV)
"And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from The Lord" (RSV: "with the help of The Lord," i.e. implying that The Lord helped to deliver the baby) (Genesis 4:1 KJV)
Chemistry and Physics:
"by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." (2 Peter 3:5-7 RSV) [see Hydrogen]
"thou hast covered me in my mother's womb" (Psalm 139:13 KJV)
Fact Finder: What, or where, is "heaven"?
