The Humanist Attack Using "Science" Fails

Humanists use a proven liar to attack the Bible.


White summarizes the historical results of relying on the Bible for answers about the physical world. It’s not a pretty sight: “[T]here were developed, in every field, theological views of science which have never led to a single truth – which, without exception, have forced mankind away from the truth, and have caused Christendom to stumble for centuries into abysses of error and sorrow.”[White, Vol. I, p. 325.]

In view of the Bible’s numerous mistaken beliefs about the physical world, there’s no reason to think its writers were any more correct about unseen and abstract matters. Being so greatly in error regarding the tangible and observable universe, the Bible cannot be considered a reliable guide for spiritual and ethical issues

The above quote from Andrew White is from the 11th chapter of the book the humanists have been extensively referencing. Is this book a reliable resource. No, not in any way. Is what White says here true? No. Click here to find out why.

Does the Bible include numerous mistaken beliefs about the physical world? No. Every example has been addressed in the previous pages.

Is the Bible in error regarding the tangible and observable universe? No. Every claim the humanists have made has been refuted in the previous pages.

Is the Bible a reliable guide to the physical universe? Yes. It is not intended to be a science book, but anytime it touches on something about the physical universe and how it works, it is accurate.

Is the Bible a reliable guide for spiritual and ethical issues? Yes. There is none better. God made you in His image. He knows your every thought and desire. No one knows you better than God does. No one, not even you knows you as well as God knows you.

Is humanism a reliable guide to the physical universe? No. Science based on humanism is based on the false premises of evolution. Evolution not only defines thinking concerning the biological, but because it requires deep time, it impacts and distorts thinking in all sciences.

Is humanism a reliable guide for spiritual and ethical issues? No. Humanists don't believe in our spiritual side, so they are clueless. We all know there is a spiritual aspect to us... God has placed that knowledge in us. Even humanists know there is a God, although they deny Him.

And humanism is no guide for morality and ethics. Humanism has no basis for morality. We're just random chemicals, and the best random chemicals can do is accept whatever the powerful say is moral and ethical. Might (guns) makes right... and history proves that you... the individual... will be deceived, suppressed, used, controlled, plundered, enslaved... and tortured and imprisoned if you resist.

A video I made that shows how evolution impacts all of our thinking, not just science, is available on YouTube here.

Conclusion: The humanist have nothing except the fiction of Andrew White. That they would even try to foist this fiction off on you as truth says that they really don't care about you. Whatever lie it takes to get you to reject God is acceptable. Keep in mind who the father of all lies is.

Jesus speaking: "Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.” - John 8:43-47

What's next? The humanists now turn to the claim of supposed: False Prophecies

Prophecies in the Bible further strengthen the Humanist view. Because many of the prophecies turned out to be false, they prove the Bible is not inerrant.

The Bible itself contains a test for determining whether a prophecy was inspired by God. Deuteronomy 18:22 explains: “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”

Applying this test to the Bible leads to one conclusion: the book contains many statements that were not inspired by God.

The prophecies in the Bible are so powerful and accurate that, to claim the Bible is not true, you must show the prophies are false. If you can't do that, you lose... and the existence of God is proven. How well do the humanists do denying Bible prophecy? Click here and find out.
