Science Test #2
Terms in this set (35)
"big 3" questions of science:
1. How did the universe begin?
2. When did the universe begin?
3. How and when did life appear on Earth?
1. Bible is complete + no errors
2. Bible is true; we accept by faith things we can't see/explain
3. If the science + Bible disagree, the science is wrong
separated light+ darkness
separated waters above +below
gathered seas, made dry land, made seed-bearing plants
Sun, moon, stars
birds of air, creatures of sea
creatures of land, mant woman
Core beliefs from which a person interprets events in the world, and upon which the person makes life's decisions and takes action.
Looking at life through colored lenses, the lenses you see through will determine how you see, interpret, and react to the world
Biblical and Secular
view of the world from a Biblical standpoint
view of the world from an atheist perspective
Biblical worldviews on creation:
1. God as divine designer/creator
2. God created all life
3. God created us in His image
Secular worldviews on creation:
1. Cataclysmic explosion/evolution/chance
2. The universe exploded into existence out of nothing
3. Life evolved from a pool of liquid sludge
4. Different life forms evolved from a single life form over millions of years
belief in the authority and reliability of something because it, or its ultimate source, is believed to be trustworthy.
Secular Worldview faith
faith in fallible human wisdom / theories
Biblical Worldview faith
faith in God's true, inerrant word
Both types of worldviews require
When scientific knowledge is accurate, it will agree with the

Day Age Theory Tenets:
1. Genesis I is "symbolic" * not to be taken literally
2. we don't know how long a "day" was
3. The word "day" in Genesis was long period of time, or "age"
4. God created the universe and all its contents during these long "ages"
Day Age Theory Problems:
1. God binds the word "day" to an evening + morning
2. The Hebrew word for day is "yom", it describes one day cycle of sunrise to sunset
3. If days were ages 1ong, the Earth would've been rotating very slowly on its axis, not 24 hr. rotations
4. If each day was millions of years, plants would have died due to no birds or insects to scatter seeds/aide in pollination
5. When God wrote 10 Commandments, he said His work was done in 6 literal, solar days ("yom")
Big Bang Theory Tenets:
1. Gravity pulled matter together & "squeezed" it into very dense mass
2. Gravitational squeeze creates super dense mass which eventually exploded
3. The "bang" caused energy to be blown outward from a tiny Point called "singularity"
4. Seconds after the "bang", hydrogen, protons, and neutrons appeared and lift weight elements appeared 5. 300,000 years after the "bang" the 1st complete atoms appeared (protons, neutrons, electrons)
6. 6 million years after "bang" first galaxy was formed
7. millions of years later, stars explode which caused heavier elements which created planets
Big Bang Theory Problems:
1. Where did the original mass of matter come from?
2. Where did the force of gravity that "squeezed" the matter come from?
3. How much gravity was required to create such dense mass of matter?
4. Explosions disorganize matter, not organize it.
Theory of Evolution Tenets:
1. Life began by "natural processes" (naturalism) not by the work of an intelligent designer (God).
2. Life arouse from non-life in a pool of chemicals around 3.8 billion years ago.
3. This formation of life was the result of time, chance, and natural processes
4. As time passes, life forms grow more and more complex (progressive complexity)
Theory of Evolution Problems:
1. Given enough time, nature will initiate change. (Bible says: God created things according to its "kind" fully developed)
2. Progressive complexity- wait long enough and something advanced + more complex will grow from what is in existence (What's next?)
3. No intermediate fossils (fossils showing species progressing into some thing else)
4. 2nd Law of Thermodynamics (Law of Entropy)- over time all systems, including living systems, deteriorate (creation is not growing more ordered; it's decaying)
