By Whom also He Made the Worlds
Creation Theory Predictive Testable Hypothesis 18
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.( John 1:1-5 ) KJV
We use scripture and the scientific method to test a predictive hypothesis that the deep, the Word of God, and Jesus Christ are all synonyms for the same Divine aspect of the Trinity – God the Son.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.( John 1:14 ) KJV
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.( 1 Corinthians 8:6 ) KJV
Given the role that the Son, the Word of God, plays as the source and originator of creation, we may understand the Greek words legó and logos to mean:
The systematic assembly of components into a predictable sequence.
The Truth Is Unscientific
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.( John 4:24 ) KJV
The scientific method is a philosophical contrivance designed to make finding the truth impossible. In a twist of irony, the scientific method may be used to demonstrate that the scientific method is a farce.
There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
I believe that the literal parts should be taken literally, but the figurative parts should not. So how do we know what parts of the Bible are literal and which are figurative?
