Science fiction is still fiction

Much of the opposition to the Biblical account of creation is due to a deeply ingrained worship of science in modern society as able to discover the mysteries of the universe. The popular conception of the universe is due to the appeal of science fiction, and the mental exercise of imagining the expansion of the human spirit into space, and church people fall for it and use the excuse of “seeing the glory of God in the stars.”

But science fiction is fiction. It is fully compatible with atheism, and is exciting to the fallen human spirit because it is an escape from the constraints imposed by God in the Bible. Science fiction is worship of a different god, and it lets us know why the Israelites had so much trouble doing what God said, and instead following the gods of the Canaanites. It’s just plain fun for the mind not renewed by the Bible.

To me, it seems to undermine creation if one takes the same position as atheists by looking at reality from an arbitrary point in space instead of from the earth as God does in the Bible.

A Christian is “free” to still be one of the elect, and do all kinds of foolish things. Solomon, for instance, gave in to his pagan wives and honored other gods, but God said He would never take His mercy away from him. But he may be undermining the Bible, and making others lose their faith.

  1. How is believing the proof and evidence put forth by those who are highly educated and have dedicated their lives to their work in any way “worshiping” science? What a silly notion, ironic and very rich coming from someone who worships a religious human sacrifice.

    ED: Thanks for the question, but I don’t think you are being logical. Maybe you don’t value logic, but use some other way of determining truth. All I know is what the Bible tells me, and what I can logically derive from it. I don’t believe what any fallen humans tell me, unless I can verify it from the Bible. Many people are highly educated and have dedicated their lives to their work, and yet make mistakes. Only God can be trusted to get it right. You worship something when you make it your final authority, like many people trust experimental science as final authority. That is irrational, because science is always subject to revision by more data and better paradigms.

    Have you ever understood the Gospel presented by the Bible, Amanda? God is not just some religious figure who can be ignored; He is Truth Itself. Truth, like a true proposition in math, has infinite requirements. Getting one part of a math problem wrong makes the answer wrong. God requires absolute perfection from humans to be acceptable to Him. But humans are not capable of absolute perfection. So, God takes His own punishment that justly should be given to the man who does not measure up to His standards. He sacrifices Himself in the person of Christ, to meet His own requirements for the man who can believe, and can trust that sacrifice, rather than asserting that his own good deeds should make him acceptable to God.
