Introduction Who Ya Gonna Believe?
There you are sitting in science class at school. You're thinking. . .
Say, what are you thinking? What are your feelings about science in general? Not as cool as a sciencefiction movie? More fun than having a cavity drilled?
Your true answer is in there somewhere.
Either way, it's science class. And it's an interesting one today, because Mr. Axiom, the science teacher, is starting a new unit on how the world began. You hear something about a Big Bang, and how all the stuff that made up the entire universe was gummed up into one puny little wad before it blew up. And how that stuff is still exploding outward, as it has since the beginning.
The story line could use a few aliens and starships, but all in all, it's really pretty cool. The Big Bang doesn't sound too scientific, but again — pretty cool!
Science: what's observed in the way things happen.
Fast-forward a couple of days. Now you're in Sunday school. Mrs. Homily, the teacher, is starting a new unit on the first book of the Bible, called Genesis. She starts with the very first words of Genesis, 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.'
The kids are kind of nodding along, but you have a big question about all this. Why aren't Mrs. Homily and Mr. Axiom on the same page? They seem to have two completely different stories for the same subject.
Mr. Axiom says the universe came from a big explosion;
Mrs. Homily claims it came from God. Who's right and who's wrong?
What really bothers you the most is that Mr. Axiom,
the science guy, seems to make the best case for his claims. A humongous, long-ago explosion is a pretty wild story, to be honest, but he makes it believable. He gives numbers and details, and tells why the scientists came up with their ideas.
Evidence (EV-eh-dents): proof that something happened.
You've always liked Mrs. Homily. What's weird is that she's only telling you what your parents might have told you all your life: God made everything.
You've always liked church and gone along with the program. But you're not a little kid anymore. You're going to be a teenager soon. You're beginning to think things through for yourself. And you're noticing that neither Mrs. Homily nor anyone at church is too concerned about . . . well, the reasons and the evidence for what they're teaching you. Not as much as in science class.
For example, you see a baseball lying in a pile of broken glass next to a window. That's your evidence that the baseball broke the window. Better hope that baseball isn't yours!
Q4 U:
What do you like or dislike about science? What kinds of science subjects have you enjoyed studying most?

    Fallacious arguments

    He claims to argue from an atheist point of view however when he discusses the matter at hand with the expert he does not make much of a challenge to the discussion. Such as discussions on evolution, they come to conclude that life could not have become as is without a creator. Ignoring that is not the realm of evolution at all. When they talk about 'complex' life they do not see any way they could have come about via natural selection. They do not bring up the dna evidence for the relationships of species.

    This is a man who is writing for people who believe or want to believe.

    Excellent!

    This is a great book for kids to read and learn about the truth about the God Who created our earth! It is on a kids level and challenges them to answer questions and discover the answer for themselves.
