There are those who espouse the error that one cannot hold to sound science and have belief in God. In other words, you can’t be a scientist and a Christian. As Christians we must consider Psalm 19:1 – “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.” There’s also Psalm 97:6 – “The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.”
Unfortunately, this idea that you can’t be a scientist and a Christian is dominating colleges and universities across the nation. That brings up Psalm 11:3: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
Sadly, the secular left has been shooting at the foundations for many years, but the truth is getting out. One individual who’s at the forefront of the effort with a powerful new book is William Federer. William is a historian, best-selling author, and president of Amerisearch, Inc. He’s authored numerous books including, America’s God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, Socialism: The Real History From Plato to the Present and Who is the King in America: An Overview of 6,000 years of History and Why America is Unique. He joined Jim to discuss, Miraculous Milestones in Science, Medicine, & Innovation and the Faith of Those Who Achieved Them.
When you think of the scientific revolution, what names come to mind? If you’re thinking of individuals such as Isaac Newton, Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo and Johannes Kepler, you’d be right. However, are you aware that Newton wrote more on the Bible and Bible prophecies than he wrote on science?
Can you imagine life without the printed page? William communicated the details beginning with the writing of Egypt which was only for kings and scribes, and a mention of China’s writing which was only for court records. He segued to Moses and the Law, printed in a 22 character alphabet, making Israel the first nation where everyone could read. This is why they were called, “The people of the Book”.
How did we get from papyrus to paper? What was the first book of significance ever printed? How did we get our calendar? What Black entrepreneurs made a significant impact? What place did Christianity have in the creation of hospitals? Get the facts on these and other innovation benchmarks when you review this fascinating edition of Crosstalk.
