Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,(2 Thessalonians 2:11) ESV
Most religions have a creed, catechisms or a statement of faith. Popular Science (SciPop) is no different. Most of SciPop is theoretical and, since theory is the scientific word for faith, believing in a theory is a leap of faith.
Here are the leaps of faith required to establish the theoretical foundation of the SciPop paradigm. We refer to them as axioms, although, technically, they aren’t axiomatic.
The Axioms of Mainstream Science (SciPop)
|1||There’s a causal relationship between space-time and gravity||Isaiah 48:13|
|2||Earth orbits the sun||Ecclesiastes 1:5|
|3||Stars are distant suns and galaxies||1 Corinthians 15:40-41|
|4||Nuclear decay has always been constant||Deuteronomy 32:22|
|5||Humanity is a product of of biological evolution||Romans 5:12|
We’ve gone to great lengths to illustrate that all 5 of these assumptions are leaps of faith. That is what this year-long daily devotional is for. The grand summary of it is the devotional for October.
Most of the atheist science trolls (ASTs), scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISW) ans SciPop devotees we interact with insist that they don’t believe these 5 Axioms, but that’s to say that they believe that belief in them isn’t necessary, they just are. They believe that SciPop has disproved God, but that they don’t have to believe in SciPop for this to be possible. We have a generation of SciPop believers who have no idea that it’s based on assumptions. As such, calling them believers is really giving them too much credit. Sadly, science is the new ignorance.
We’ve identified 5 leaps of faith in the theoretical foundation of mainstream science (SciPop).
