SCIENCE! is NOT as most imagine it to be.
SCIENCE! is a religion.
This can be ably demonstrated by the great number of scientific theories, postulations and stories which have to be taken on faith.
“Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: ‘Ye must have faith.’”
—Max Planck, Nobel winner in Physics
Planck spoke of the ‘temple of science.’ What normally takes place in temples?
HOWEVER, the truth NEVER changes. What is true today will be the true tomorrow.
The truth is immutable.
Planck was a Nobel Prize winner in Physics in 1918.
As a scientist, Planck made MANY nonsensical statements during his lifetime. The following was NOT among them.
“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”
At another time, Planck reworded his statement:
“An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: What does happen is that the opponents gradually die out.”
Together, these two statements are known as “Planck’s Principle.”
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. . . . An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarized with the ideas from the beginning: another instance of the fact that the future lies with the youth.
— Max Planck, Scientific autobiography, 1950, p. 33, 97
Planck’s Principle has been sometimes reduced to “Science progresses one funeral at a time“.
At any rate, ‘Planck’s Principle’ is that rarest of things: a truthful statement about science from a man of science.
DOES the reader put his faith in SCIENCE!?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
