The Paradox of Modern Science


Good science requires that theories stand up to probing questions.

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised (Romans 1:25, NIV)

Several years ago, the local school board required high school science textbooks to have a sticker attached. This sticker said simply, “This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.”

Notice that there was nothing on the sticker that advocated a belief in God. Neither did it even mention creationism. It simply advised the students to ask questions and form their beliefs based on what they conclude from the evidence. This was really all about good education, about considering different theories with an open mind. Part of learning is to be able to consider different outlooks about life. Despite this, the federal courts demanded that these simple stickers be removed from all textbooks.

Education is supposed to be about the free flow of ideas. When you have a theory as controversial as evolution that is taught through indoctrination more than examination, it is not education. Good science requires that theories stand up to probing questions. Why do evolutionists fear similar questioning? What do they have to fear?

Open-minded people don’t fear the truth—they seek it, for truth has no fear. It’s the paradox of modern science.
