“Science is not a body of facts,” says geophysicist Marcia McNutt, who once headed the U.S. Geological Survey and is now editor of Science, the prestigious journal. “Science is a method for deciding whether what we choose to believe has a basis in the laws of nature or not.”
Benson note: Even the author is ironically hypocritical when he starts writing about 'truths.' He refers to Darwin's 'idea' of evolution. An idea is synonymous with theory. Therefore 'truths' are relevant to the theory. Yet the author seems to state them as absolute truths. To me science points to God's creation. Call it faith. Perhaps. This applies to evolutionists 'faith' in Darwin. I recommend that whenever anyone is in a scientific arena or discussion to remember that scientific truths are relevant to the theory discussed. Just because I understand the theory of evolution doesnt mean I subscribe to it. It simply helps me understand where the speaker/writer is coming from.
One other note: In this article, where the author introduces, "naive beliefs" or what he describes as one who subconsciously cling to intuitions, I take that to mean Romans 1:20/21; For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, evenhis eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
