"We know the bible was not written as a science book, although whatever it says about science is true." (page 60).
"Vultures serve as 'God's undertakers,' living off the flesh of dead animals." (page 188)The quickest way to test a science textbook's godliness is to crack open the glossary to the E's. Let's see:
"An imaginary process," just like alchemy or Jedi training or looking for a job in America today! From this we can tell that Science for the Christian Schools is a pioneering work in purporting to reconcile articles of faith with the scientific method, which is something like like reconciling virginity with going Greek at USC, by which I mean it misses the point of both.
Here's how it twists both:
"We have to be careful not to say that the fossil record proves the Bible is true. God says His Word is Truth, so we know that Bible accounts of it are accurate."Science, you see, is not the process of testing hypotheses to discover what is true. It's instead more about pretending to show the work on a test where you already have the answers.
