Bible Science by i-stamp Bible Science by i-stamp
There's been a lot of stamps lately about the bible being scientifically accurate.
They must've been reading a different bible than I did.

This is but a small selection of myths and legends you see in every religion but some only find believable in their religion. That's faith for you.

I don't think your fellow "scientists" can understand what you're saying. There's no BLEEPS and BLOOPS and SpongeBob Production Music playing.

Less than 1% of scientists that are creationists, and creationism has been ruled unscientific both academically and by trial. If anyone should have quotation marks around their professional title, I think we both know which ones should.

Chemicals and hormones have nothing to do with how you feel. They simply register how you feel.

No, they do not. The biochemical reactions in the brain are what causes emotions, thoughts and everything else. We do not understand everything about this yet, we do not fully understand how this works yet, but we do know with certainty that it does.

It may sound preposterous to the uneducated ear. "How could simple chemical reactions be the cause of all that?" The thing is ... those chemical reactions are in no way "simple". The brain is one of the - if not <the single> - most complex systems we know.

And how did the brain come to be? How could something like nature, without a mind of its own, devise such a complex organ?

Simple. Through evolution. Simple multi-cell organisms developed specified cells over time that were used to organize and control, giving them an advantage. A cluster of those cells would be more advantageous than only a few, so organisms with more of them were better able to survive. It grew from there, ever increasing in volume and complexity over millennia upon millennia.

No mind is needed to create complexity, the proof of this is all around us. It only becomes a problem if you realize this while already being completely convinced that everything must have been made by a supernatural deity, because reasons. If you hold no such presuppositions, there is no problem.

They cause you to feel that way...which is why your heart beats faster when you're talking to the person you like and so forth.

But I'm curious- how would you explain it?

:iconidreamofthewind:
IDreamOfTheWind Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a feeling to do something for someone or something else, whether it may be as small as thought or large as marriage, and it's a desire to choose the someone or something over your own desires. It's all very hard to explain. :)

Oh my. Looking down at all these comments about people trying to push their religion into you is a little... rude. I believe in the Big Bang theory (followed by the steady state theory), but I think it's wrong for people to force other people to believe in faith or science. Plus, there is a type of bug that walks in water. :P

It's not said to be scientifically accurate, it's said to be HISTORICALLY accurate!

No, many christians, especially creationists, also claim that it is indeed scientifically accurate.

But that said, Stephen King's novel 11/22/63 is also historically accurate, especially its setting. That doesn't mean, however, that some guy in 2011 actually traveled back in time to try and prevent the assassination of JFK.
Similar things go for the bible.

In some cases yes, in some cases no. There are several incongruousness too. There's no evidence of Jewish slaves wandering around Egypt. The flood (as described) didn't happen. Many cities fortold to fall never did. Things like that.

 really wish you'd talk to a real scientist. Science cannot prove nor disprove anything related to religion. And using it as a way to insult somebody is childish.

I just gave you three real, and rather famous scientists in different fields. And their comments about religion in opposition to science. And explained to you how and where science can prove and disprove things related to religion.

Everyone is biased. But the beauty of science is that it's peer reviewed. Biased, selected results would be quickly picked clean by your peers when their tests do not replicate the same results. 

And really, I dare you to accuse one of the most renowned physicists of all time, Stephen Hawking, who has contributed more to the field than anyone else, of not knowing what he's talking about.

Or rather logical thinking leads to the belief that God really did create science and all its properties due to material evidence and stored knowledge.

There is no material evidence of gods, and no logical conclusion based on our observed world to lead one there. Just assumptions and unevidenced claims.

In the Bible, it says that God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by raining down "fire and brimstone". The ruins have been found with millions of sulfur pellets embedded in them.
Reply
:iconi-stamp:
i-stamp Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014
The Sodom and Gomorrah myth was imported from Sumerian cuneiform writing as part of their creation story, and existed long before bible writings. The area you're describing has natural sulfur and brimstone and lyme deposits, but no evidence that they got there through rain, and no evidence of any archaeological structures with these properties except stone mined for deposit areas. The deposits themselves were from meteor impacts in the Mediterranean long before anywhere near the purported events of the bible, or even before the cuneiform writing the bible lifts so much from (in fact much of the bible is appropriated Sumerian myths.)
