Popular Science is Axiomatically Wrong

Neil Degrasse Tyson posing beside an statement with flawed logic

October 5

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

(Romans 1:19-23) KJV

The popular science paradigm (SciPop) wasn’t deduced from axioms, its axioms were induced by accepting the premise of the paradigm. SciPop axioms aren’t axiomatic.

Neinstein

Bald man with handlebar mustache in military uniform

But there was a man named Simon, who had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was somebody great. They all paid attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the power of God that is called Great.” And they paid attention to him because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic.

(Acts 8:9-11) ESV

Our comic super heroines Sophia Proton and her trusty sidekick Kat Ion have found their Arch-villain: Neinstein. He’s probably somewhere between Sherlock Holmes’ Moriarty and Friedrich Nietzsche.

Sharks and Bony Fish

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

(Genesis 1:21-22) NKJV

Sedimentary deposits containing sharks and bony fish can be assigned to the Mississippian because of how the evolution narrative, of development from primitive to advanced, overlays with the geological timescale.

Liverworts, Fungi

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

(2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) NKJV

Liverworts, fungi” is inductive sleight-of-hand. Supposedly, Liverworts and fungi are at the low end of evolutionary development so, supposedly, their presence in the stratigraphic column indicates that a sediment is old.

Heterospory and the Seed Habit

By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

(Hebrews 11:7) NKJV

Heterospory and the seed habit” is scientific smoke and mirrors. It sounds technical, so most folk will probably assume that so long as someone else understands it, then everything’s okay.

Diversification of Vascular Plants

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(2 Thessalonians 2:11-12) KJV

Diversification of vascular plants: all major groups except flowering plants present by end of Devonian“. This demonstrates how inductive reasoning is used to account for evidence.

Graptiloids, Nautiloids, Cystoids in Maximum Abundance

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

(Genesis 1:21-22) NKJV

If a sedimentary rock is full of the remains of Graptiloids does it means that the Graptiloids were in their maximum abundance? No, it means that the place where the Graptiloids lived got buried in sediment.

The Decay Constant isn’t Constant

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

(2 Timothy 4:3-4) NKJV

The Bible says that the Earth is about 6,000 years old, yet popular science (SciPop) has faith in rock samples and fossils that may be up to 3.8 or so billion years old. How could this be?
