I Thought Science Knew Everything!

Apr 5, 2014

The recent mishap with Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 in which 239 people together with the aircraft disappeared (as it were) into the thin air, is a big slap in the face of modern science.

Most people were (and still are) shocked that in this day and hour with all the technological advancements, such a thing could happen and leave the whole world (including the super powers) scratching around for answers.

Up till this very moment, nearly a month after the incidence, all that the world has to go by are speculations, hypothetical calculations and inconclusive deductions based on some floating debris found in the Indian Ocean.
This is embarrassing to science and modern technology to say the least.


My Heart Reaches Out To Those Affected

For the avoidance of doubt, let me make it clear that this is not an attempt to trivialize the issue or trample upon the feelings of those who lost their loved ones. Far from it!

My heart actually bleeds to think of the anguish that those that lost their loved ones have had to undergo. Just put yourself in their shoes for a moment and you will agree that this must have been a most painful and bitter experience for all concerned.

I therefore extend my deepest sympathy and heart-felt condolences to those affected by this tragic mishap.

I Have Nothing Against Science

Furthermore, I wish to state unequivocally that this is not an attack on science. I have always loved science and even at school I was a core science student. My choice subjects included physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, additional mathematics, etc.
Till today, I am a lover of technology (which is the brain child of science) and it is no wonder that I like electronic gadgets and things digital.

Science And Technology Are A Great Blessing

Science and technology constitute about the greatest wonder of our modern world. This world wouldn’t be what it is today without the immense contributions that have come from science and technology. Just look around – almost in any field of human endeavour, science and technology are redefining the way we live and the quality of the life that we enjoy.
Therefore the value of science is not in question by any means in today’s world.

Where Many Are Getting It Wrong.

The great mistake that many people around the world are making today however, is that they have come to put all their trust in science.

Science has become their God – they believe in it, they trust in it and they totally depend on it. In fact, many are not prepared to believe what you tell them except you can prove it to them scientifically.

That is why many have thrown the Bible out of their lives and why many are not willing to go to church because they will be told to believe what has not been scientifically proven in the science lab.

Many depend on science as if it has all the answers to the issues of human life – but does it?

Science Does Not Know Everything

The disappearance of the Malaysian Flight MH370 is a stark reminder that there is still a big knowledge gap in science.

You will agree with me that a huge aircraft disappearing from the sky is not a spiritual phenomenon – it is physical and material. And there is no reason why with all its technological advancements, the whole world should be caught panting to find answers had it not being that science does not know everything even within its own environment.

Or do you want me to refer to the mysteries around the Bermuda triangle which science has still not been able to solve after these many decades? Let’s not even go there.

Even if all the answers and explanations concerning that Flight were to be found today, that will still not diminish this fact – that science does not know everything. But many people depend on it as if it does.

Even The Super Powers Have Been Beaten Hands Down

If our scientific knowledge was adequate and complete, the answer as to what happened to that Flight should have been provided within the first few hours of its disappearance.

Just think about it – the United States of America, The United Kingdom, Japan, China, Russia, etc – they all struggled to find answers and many still haven’t arrived at any conclusive answer till now!

This is embarrassing – I thought the modern man knows everything (courtesy of science)!

A Pertinent Question

Now here is the big question: since it is clear that there are things that science does not (or does not yet) know even in this physical world, what is the wisdom of resting the eternal destiny of your soul on what scientific knowledge has or has not taught you? What is the wisdom of rejecting biblical truths on scientific grounds?

Like I said earlier, the reason a lot of people are not prepared to believe the Bible these days is because of their reliance on what their scientific knowledge endorses.

What will such people do the day they find out (too late) that there is a whole body of knowledge about their soul that was not within the reach of science? It will be a sad regret. Don’t let that happen to you.

Knowledge Beyond Scientific Proof

Listen to me dear friend, you need to believe the word of God - the Bible. There are many things in it that you may not be able to prove scientifically, but that does not mean that it is not true.

And one of those key truths in the Bible that you need to believe is that your soul needs to be saved. As a human being, you are a sinner (just like anyone else) and one day (when you leave this world), you will stand before your Maker (God) to give account of your life. That is why we all need a Saviour.

If you die and leave this world as an unsaved soul, you won’t like where you find yourself.

This is not intended to frighten you or anything like that (no one gains anything by doing that). This is the simple truth and you need to believe it.

You Need To Be Saved (if you are not already)

That was why Jesus came to this world. He died to pay for your sins and mine.

But since God will not force this salvation on anyone, it is only those who ask for it that get it. So for you to be forgiven of your sins, you need to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to save your soul.

When you do so sincerely, He will save your soul. This is knowledge that you must not ignore. Click here to find out more.

Scientific knowledge does not cover everything – especially things that are spiritual, things that have to do with the eternal destiny of your soul. Don’t place a blind trust on science.

Make sure you are saved or born again (if you are not already) and the earlier to get that sorted the better. More information is available here.
