Science - Then a Leap of Faith

This podcast presents some informative science topics. HOWEVER, as soon as the topic is over, Ross drinks the purple kool-aid and claims that the Bible actually predicted the science in question thousands of years ago.

Believing that the same inspired Word of God which stated the earth was flat and couldn't calculate the value of pi, had some insight in Relativity is a little far fetched.

During the podcast, Ross doesn't present any of the biblical verses which he believes support these claims. This is probably a wise move as I'm willing to bet God's thoughts on quantum mechanics is some cherry picked, loosely interpeted passage sandwiched between instructions on how best to milk your goat and how many chickens you can sell your virgin daughter for.

Compromising Genesis

Hugh Ross and Reasons to Believe don’t hold to a grammatical and historical narrative of the Genesis account of creation. The long age belief of RTB is completely incompatible with Genesis 1-11 and they should be avoided at all costs.

Ignore "village atheist" reviews

Very few things are more dogmatic than saying "the bible isn't compatible with science," and we see this spouted by uninformed atheists daily. In reality, this statement is simply based in ignorance and if you give R2B's materials a fair and honest chance with an open mind, you will see the deep compatibilities between faith, reason and evidence.
