Scientists throughout history have a less-than-stellar track record of accuracy, and cannot be counted on to definitively ascertain the origin of life, claims the author of a brand-new book defending the Christian faith.
In â€œThe Magic Man in the Sky,â€ Carl Gallups, a supporter of the Bibleâ€™s creation account, says thereâ€™s a world of difference between someone declaring a momentary truth, and the actual â€œtrue truth.â€
He recalls some ludicrous ideas once steadfastly believed and promoted by the most intelligent people of their day.
â€œAt one point in history, the brilliant minds of the world declared that the earth was flat,â€ writes Gallups. â€œA number of great minds proclaimed that the world was held up at the four corners by giant elephants. This was declared as truth. Others thought the sun revolved around the earth. To believe anything different was considered unscientific, to the point of absurdity.
â€œFor eons, men believed that if one sailed upon the seas long enough, one would reach the end of the world and then tumble over the edge. At one time, all of these concepts were declared as truth, and they were thought to be truth because the enlightened minds and the scientists of their time said so. As we now know, they were not true. In fact, they were not even close to the truth.â€
He points out that true truth is always the truth.
