It seems like a lot of Christians love to criticize any science that conflicts with their interpretation of the Bible. There’s a problem with that though.
Most of us are not equipped to have a proper in-depth understanding of scientific concepts. When it comes to subjects such as nuclear physics, neuroscience, evolution, or cosmology, we can have an understanding of the basic concepts, but when it comes to a comprehensive understanding, the professional opinions of those who are qualified to hold them are what actually matter. The rest of us can have discussions on the findings and opinions of qualified professionals, and even bring up questions or objections, but again, we should defer to those who are qualified.
Creationists try to circumvent this by attacking the scientists and their “worldview”, their “bias”, or their “presuppositions”. They attack rather than simply proving their god assertion and they don’t listen when told why these attacks are wrong. If they could prove any of their claims then they simply would. If they had evidence then they could just show it to everyone and we’d all believe, except we wouldn’t call it belief, we’d call it knowledge.
Most are just intellectual vandals, chucking rocks at hard won scientific knowledge. They don’t contribute anything; they just yell “nuh-uh” and run away with their fingers in their ears so they don’t hear why their criticisms are wrong. Some try to argue or debate, but when their arguments don’t work, they either keep yelling “nuh-uh” endlessly, or move on to their next canned argument that’s already been disproven, unfazed that their trail of previous arguments didn’t work. Some try to play at science, but find themselves at odds with the vast majority in their field.
When it comes to evolution or the Big Bang, the “scientific dissenters” are not the rebels who will turn out to be right. Creationists had their time. Human beings have believed in gods and the supernatural since we began to be able to form ideas. I think we could say that almost everyone who has ever lived used to believe in creation in some form or another. Now we know better. Science has shown all those myths to be incorrect.
We could just point and laugh but the problem is that they influence other people who are ill equipped to understand why the good Christian scientists telling them what they want to hear are wrong. Confirmation bias meets persecution complex, so naturally the revolutionary ideas are being suppressed. More than just ill equipped, most don’t WANT to hear why they might be wrong. Most think it’s preferable if their god exists so it must be true and they’ll listen to whoever agrees.
So if you have an objection to science, go find some evidence for your objection or come up with an alternate hypothesis and then prove it. You can participate in the process, but you better know what you are talking about if you want to be taken seriously. Hell, one of Stephen Hawking’s theories was proven wrong by Leonard Susskind, originally a plumber from New York. But Susskind did actual scientific work.
