***Christians*** Do you think of the bible as a science book? ***Christians***LET THE CHRISTIANS ANSWER THIS PLEASE


If you do look at the bible as a science book why?

I have never heard of finding science in the bible.

I do believe science is so complex there is no way God didn't have a hand in the way science works.

  • No, I do not look at the Bible as a science book. For me, it is the word of God, our ancestry, and hope.

  • A friend put it to me this way - the bible isn't meant to explain the hows and whys of how the world came to be. Its about imparting the word of God.

    Its like trying to learn about the brain. You wouldn't go into a biology textbook and expect to find every detail about the brain in there, although there would be some mention.

  • No. to me the Bible is more like a guide book. It tells me how things should be and what happened as far as how Christ lived, etc. Some of it is Truth, and some is Truth under the guise of a good story or parable. In no way do I really consider the Bible to be a fact book or anything.

  • I agree with you all. I am wondering where the notion of explaining science from the bible came from. Hopefully some of the Christian moms that use the bible to explain science will give an answer.

  • No, I don't use the Bible as a science text book. I believe that God made everything according to His plan, and that included roles for humans as scientists, who explore His world and give "scientific" reason behind all that He created.

  • I don't look at the Bible as a science book, BUT I do believe that the Bible contains information that scientists later find out on their own. The Bible contains instructions for health, nutrition, and hygene that we now have discovered are cutting edge health practices (handwashing-- germ theory, toxins in foods-- bottom dwellers and pork, and hyssop to wash the mouth -- lysterine, etc.)

    The Bible also was the first to say that the universe is expanding, and that the earth is a circle that is hanging in space, suspended on nothing. God created the universe so He can reveal to us things that we don't yet know about science. And that is really cool : )
