Science and The Creator

"And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king's meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king. Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah" (Daniel 1:3-6 KJV)

"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:

Astronomy:

"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)

"He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names" (Psalm 147:4 KJV)

"Then The Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said ... Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?" (Job 38:1,31 KJV) (the Pleiades star cluster is shown below, and a picture of the constellation Orion can be seen in The Speed Of Time)

This photograph shows the actual Pleiades star cluster which God Himself speaks of in Job 38:31: "Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades?"
The glow around the stars is caused by vast amounts of space dust that is illuminated from behind by the blue stars (depending upon surface temperature, stars can be seen in a wide variety of colors - white, blue, yellow, orange, red). Astronomers believe that gravity causes planets to form from that "dust."

Geology:

"a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass" (Deuteronomy 8:9 KJV)

"O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains" (Psalm 65:5-6 KJV)

"Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall" (Ezekiel 38:19-20 KJV) (see Earthquake!)

Medicine:

"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)

"Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them" (Jeremiah 33:6 KJV)

"the leaf thereof for medicine" (Ezekiel 47:12 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]

"wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat" (2 Peter 3:12 KJV)

Biology:

"thou hast covered me in my mother's womb" (Psalm 139:13 KJV)

"And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so." (Genesis 1:30 KJV)
