Q: Does belief in God violate operational science?

A: Critics of the Bible frequently ridicule the apparent lack of a physical source for the light God created on Day One of Creation Week. “Isn’t this a violation of operational science?” they ask. In fact, they would accuse us of simply accepting “myth over fact.”

While this is a frequently asked question, it also one that we have answered many times, yet the critics are evidently unwilling to consider the biblical answer. All that’s required for day and night is that the earth turns while receiving light from one direction. We are not saying the light that was created on Day One and continued to shine until Day Four didn’t have a source. Rather, we note that the source of the light for the first three days is not identified in the creation account of Genesis 1.

As to the larger criticism, the origin of the universe is not something that operational science can explain but enters into the realm of religious faith. This failure of operational science to explain the origin of the universe is just one limitation of science. More importantly, it underscores the fact that the universe had to have a metaphysical origin.

Read the whole article by Dr. Danny Faulkner to consider how the evolutionary view fails to follow operational science to explain the origin of the universe.
