Famous Scientists' belief in Creator
Posted 09 February 2007 - 01:55 AM
Einstein is probably the best known and most highly revered scientist of the twentieth century, and is associated with major revolutions in our thinking about time, gravity, and the conversion of matter to energy (E=mc2).
Although never coming to belief in a personal God, he recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe. The Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in "Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists." This actually motivated his interest in science, as he once remarked to a young physicist: "I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details."
Einstein's famous epithet on the "uncertainty principle" was "God does not play dice" - and to him this was a real statement about a God in whom he believed. A famous saying of his was "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

Many times we hear the phrase "all scientists believe or accept evolution as fact" or that "the overwhelming majority of scientists believe or accept Darwinian evolution."
This is simply not true. Even if this was true, remember that majority opinion does not validate truth, and majority opinion does not prove anything. The philosophical bias of the individual influences them far greater than any "scientific evidence."
The scientists listed below have all signed their names as agreeing to the statement:
"I am skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged."

- Clearly all scientists do NOT believe in or accept evolution as a irrefutable fact.

The list you gave is just a short list and is not inclusive of all scientists that believe in creation, a young earth and the worldwide flood of Noah's time. This list is growing rapidly by the day as evolution is being disproved more and more each day. God's word is the truth and will overcome all other falsehoods.
A few nights ago I happened to come across a program on TBN about scientists disproving the theory of evolution. I cannot explain everything as they did....but basically, they said that everything is so very complex in all of creation....and also that evolution goes against some known scientific laws. Also, there are no transition fossils. Therefore they said the theory of evolution can't be true.

There is a wonderful book written by an individual that was led to believe in God because of the scientific evidence that the world was created.
and here is another one:
Some websites that have some excellent material on this with many articles written by scientists.
The following link is various articles written by scientists and educators with quite a few of them written by myself.

The Mount St Helens eruption has also disproved many other supposed "truths of evolution". Trees that have not been fossilized nor coalified have been found to be growing in an upright position through coal and some through many geological layers.
I saw a program today on TBN on this same subject of Mount St. Helens disproving evolution. They mentioned how many vast layers were wiped away by the eruption...uncovering, as you mentioned, the upright trees and other roughly, stacked trees that would signify a worldwide flood, as in Noah's time.

The problem is our universities are opposed to giving jobs to Creation scientists. Even our other schools, media, etc, are in favor of teaching evolution as a fact when it is just a theory.

Matthew Maury, considered the father of oceanography.
"The study of the book of Job and its comparison with the latest scientific discoveries has brought me to the matured conviction that the Bible is an inspired book and was written by the One who made the stars."

Since I have a friend who is just starting college and is a Science major (will study medicine), I'm bumping this topic up again. Say a prayer for all the young people who are going to college and who might not hear about Creationism....

Everything is so complex, even a single cell in our bodies and they must work together in just a certain way.
Of course, we believers simply have faith in God. But for others, perhaps it will help them to realize that evolution is just a theory, not a proven fact.
