The Literature and Language of the Chaldeans

Then the king commanded Ashpenaz, his chief eunuch, to bring some of the people of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility, youths without blemish, of good appearance and skillful in all wisdom, endowed with knowledge, understanding learning, and competent to stand in the king’s palace, and to teach them the literature and language of the Chaldeans.

(Daniel 1:3-4) ESV

We’re going to use the phrase “the literature and language of the Chaldeans” as a euphemism for popular science (SciPop), a false narrative of godless existence.

Science

And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

(Daniel 1:3-4) KJV

What is science? The word is used to refer to beneficial technology like the iPhone but also to a pseudoscientific narrative of godless existence. The word, as used, refers to a mixture of truth and error.

The Word Became Flesh

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

(1 Corinthians 11:23-24) ESV

We need to demonstrate a logical progression [from] the elements produced by nucleosynthesis [to] organic life with replicating DNA. Fortunately science did a bang up job of documenting it.

Science vs. Faith

And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

(Daniel 1:3-4) KJV

The science vs. faith debate is smoke and mirrors because the words “science” and “faith” are poorly understood. The problem is that the words, as used, have definitions which don’t fit the usage.

Mainstream Science is a Paradigm

Then the king commanded Ashpenaz, his chief eunuch, to bring some of the people of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility, youths without blemish, of good appearance and skillful in all wisdom, endowed with knowledge, understanding learning, and competent to stand in the king’s palace, and to teach them the literature and language of the Chaldeans.

(Daniel 1:3-4) ESV

When people hear the word “science” what they think it refers to turns out to be a combination of two things: 1) truth, and 2) error. What’s truth and what’s error? How can we know for sure?

Quantities aren't really quantities, even if we give them names. Words define the thing, even though the thing may be unknown.

The Babylonian Language

The king ordered Ashpenaz, his chief official, to select from among the Israelite exiles some young men of the royal family and of the noble families. They had to be handsome, intelligent, well-trained, quick to learn, and free from physical defects, so that they would be qualified to serve in the royal court. Ashpenaz was to teach them to read and write the Babylonian language.

(Daniel 1:3-4) Good News Translation

Newton gave mainstream science (SciPop) the math it needed to remove Earth from the center of the universe, and hell from the center of Earth. His work is based on bold guesses. They were wrong.
