Could science operate if the biblical God didn’t exist? Dr. Jason Lisle, AiG–U.S., shows why even atheist scientists unwittingly depend upon a God they don’t believe in.
The Bahnsen article made the statement “The Bible provides the only possible presupposition for all thought and science.” The ancient Greeks, with no knowledge of the Bible, determined that the Earth is a sphere with a radius of about 6,000 km rather than a two dimensional circle with no dimensions given. The Greeks also used scientific methods to correctly determine the approximate diameter of the moon and estimate its distance from the Earth to a high degree of accuracy while the ancient Hebrews with their scripture achieved essentially nothing in Astronomy. The Greeks also concluding that the Sun was larger than the Earth, were able to hypothesize the Earth orbited the much larger Sun. The Greeks also devised a means to determine the distance to the Sun that failed only because the instruments of the day lacked the capability of measuring very small angles. Clearly human reasoning proved far more valuable than divine revelation in the realm of Astronomy to the ancients.
Did you know that almost six out of ten teens leave the church at some point? Nearly 60% of high school students who grow up going to church will close the doors to a Christian life.

Whenever I answer a question like this, I’m deeply aware that someone may be reading this who is seriously contemplating suicide—and I would do everything in my power to convince them not to take that final, drastic step. With Christ, there is always hope. If that’s you, please hear me. Don’t you dare do that! Jesus and I deeply love you and need you.
(This post is written to Christian women and is based on a biblical worldview, supported with Scripture. Since the writing of this post, a sequel has been written, The Motive to Modesty.) Hurriedly I raked through my second dresser drawer in the dim light of the unlit closet, scrambling for pants of some kind. Finding some, I grabbed a workout shirt, jammed feet into tennis shoes and breathlessly answered the door for Mr. M. “Ready for breakfast?” he asked.
