The myth of atheism and science (p. 16)

Days for additional information.) Write a report on the scientist you are most interested in.
- When did scientific disciplines begin to flourish? Why?
- Some people claim that belief in the General Theory of Evolution (GTE) is essential to
understanding ‘science’. Why is this not true? (See How important is
evolution to science, really?)
Is it Science? (pp. 16–17)
- Distinguish between ‘operational science’ and ‘origins science’. Which leaves more room for personal bias to influence
- List the following scientific disciplines. Tell one aspect of each that falls under ‘operational science’ and one that falls under
‘origins science’ (e.g. for Astronomy, studying/counting the stars or galaxies is operational science while theorizing about star formation or the beginning of the
universe is origins science. (See Naturalism, Origin and Operation Science for more
- Do science and Christianity conflict? (See The Belief System Behind Evolution and
It’s not science!) Why or why not?
Who created God? (pp. 18–20)
- Why does God not have—or need to have—a beginning in time?
- What is the law of cause and effect? In the light of this, discuss the reasonableness of those who say that the universe had not cause.
The Christian knows God! (p. 20)
How can a person have a personal relationship with God?
How would you would respond to the question:
“I read with interest your article about atheism, in which you state it is self-refuting. In its basic form, atheism consists of the lack of belief in a God. This can
hardly be deemed self-refuting. Furthermore, it is simple enough to demonstrate that belief in God is absurd and irrational. An atheist needs do no more. An atheist does not need
to prove that God does not exist—the theist must demonstrate that God does exist. Since this is not possible, belief in God is irrational, particularly when no
theist is capable of providing a coherent definition of what God is.”
