Blind Faith Part 3

Blind Faith Part 3

Methodological Naturalism

The third way scientists assume on blind faith that the Bible is false is called methodological naturalism. This is the belief that no natural event is caused by God. If scientists are not looking for God to use a possible cause of natural events it is no wonder that they never prove God is behind natural causes.

 
Here is how it works:

  • Since God does not cause natural events, He did not cause a severe drought for 3 years in the days of Elijah.
  • Since God does not cause natural occurrences, He did not punish Judah in the days of Jeremiah by leading the Jews into captivity under Nebuchadnezzar.
  • Because God does not cause natural phenomenon, He did not cause the star to lead the wise men to baby Jesus.

A comparison can be made between methodological naturalism and assuming a missing ring is not in the bedroom. Because we assume the ring is not there, we do not look in the bedroom for the ring. If the ring is in the bedroom we will not find it as we will not look there. Likewise, because methodological naturalism assumes on blind faith that God does not cause natural events, scientists do not look for this and hence never find it.

Scientists reject the Bible on blind faith because of methodological naturalism.

As with Occam’s Razor, decisions based on flawed facts will be flawed decisons and cannot be trusted !
