Bible & Science: Design vs. Chance
- a new book published by the Christadelphian Tidings
– the Fraternal magazine for Christadelphians in North &
The greatest modern challenge to faith in the Bible is the dogma
that is called Darwinism. The concept that the Universe,
and all that is in it, came about by pure chance is counter to all
sound Bible teaching. To compete with these pervading theories we
should not resort to blind faith, instead we should rely on the
principle that God is the author of both the Bible and nature. If
we accept this premise then the Word of God and the observations
of scientists need not be in conflict.
The purpose of this book is to show that there is no conflict between
the creation stories as told in the Holy Bible and the findings
of modern science. The book covers the early chapters of Genesis
from the creation of the universe through the deluge in the days
of Noah. The Bible record is placed in juxtaposition to the scientific
evidence usually presented to justify the origin of life as the
result of blind chance. The level of science and Bible knowledge
is kept at a level that is readily understood from teenage to senior
Sunday School teachers, clergymen, young people, parents etc. In
fact anyone who is disturbed by the seeming conflict between science
and religion. The level of science and the depth of Bible knowledge
should be comprehensible to the serious student from teenage to

Some quotes from the book:
Do the Bible and science have anything in common?……
I believe in both the Bible and science and all that follows is
written from that perspective.
The sad consequence of ignoring this connection and attributing
the natural world instead to the god of chance is that it removes
any personal responsibility for men and woman to search for Truth
in the things of the spirit.
