Here are the resources for Lesson 5 – Science: What Is True?
Points to consider for discussion time
- Have you ever experienced the wonder of God’s creation? If so, share that story briefly with us.
- Jean-Paul Sartre said that the Great Philosophical Question is, “Why is there something rather than nothing?” Is science capable of answering this question? Why or why not?
- In Romans 1:20, the apostle Paul tells us that God’s “invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.” How is it possible to perceive invisible truths in tangible, physical realities? Have you ever had such an experience?
- In scientific terms, what do we mean by the words hypothesis, theory, and law? Given the definitions of these words, is there any basis for Carl Sagan’s assertion that “evolution is a fact?” At what point in the scientific process would such a statement become invalidated?
- Discuss some of the “imaginative” ways in which scientists have managed to skirt around the problems inherent to evolutionary theory. Are their solutions tenable? Why or why not?
- How have evolution-based philosophical assumptions led to social abuses in our own day?
