Blind Faith Part 2
(Occam's Razor)

In part 1 we learned scientists assume the Bible is false with a hypothesis called uniformitarianism. Now we will look at another hypothesis in which scientists assume on blind faith that the Bible is a lie. This hypothesis is called Occam's Razor, or Ockham's Razor.

When scientists assume on blind faith that Occam's Razor is true, they believe the unknown should be interpreted in terms of the known. Here is how scientists who believe in Occam's Razor on blind faith reason when they approach the Bible:

Ha! So you say the Red Sea parted and the children of Israel crossed it on dry ground. A likely story! Nothing like this is known to have happened, so obviously it never happened that way.

There is only one case in all of all human history where a virgin has claimed to conceive a child by the Holy Spirit. Since no known example has ever happened, we believe Jesus was conceived by a simple act of adultery.

Known examples of resurrection after three days of death just aren't there. Therefore we are to reject the notion that Jesus was raised from the dead

Scientists reject the Bible on blind faith because they adhere to 'Occam's Razor'.

Decisions based on flawed facts will be flawed decisons and cannot be trusted !

Blind Faith Part 3
Methodological Naturalism

The third way scientists assume on blind faith that the Bible is false is called methodological naturalism. This is the belief that no natural event is caused by God. If scientists are not looking for God to use a possible cause of natural events it is no wonder that they never prove God is behind natural causes.

 
Here is how it works:

  • Since God does not cause natural events, He did not cause a severe drought for 3 years in the days of Elijah.

  • Since God does not cause natural occurrences, He did not punish Judah in the days of Jeremiah by leading the Jews into captivity under Nebuchadnezzar.

  • Because God does not cause natural phenomenon, He did not cause the star to lead the wise men to baby Jesus.

A comparison can be made between methodological naturalism and assuming a missing ring is not in the bedroom. Because we assume the ring is not there, we do not look in the bedroom for the ring. If the ring is in the bedroom we will not find it as we will not look there. Likewise, because methodological naturalism assumes on blind faith that God does not cause natural events, scientists do not look for this and hence never find it.

Scientists reject the Bible on blind faith because of methodological naturalism.

As with Occam's Razor, decisions based on flawed facts will be flawed decisons and cannot be trusted !
