science falsely so called
1 Timothy 6:20
6:20 science falsely so called. “Science falsely so-called” is, in the Greek, literally “pseudo-science” or “pseudo knowledge.” This pseudo-science is nothing other than evolutionism, which has been in “oppositions” against God as Savior and Creator and the world as His creation since the beginning of time. In Paul’s day, it mainly took the form of Epicureanism (based on atheistic evolutionism) and Stoicism (based on pantheistic evolutionism). It soon would take the form of Gnosticism and later of Neo-Platonism, both also assuming evolution. In other parts of the world, it had the form of Taoism, Hinduism, Confucianism, or Buddhism, all based squarely on some form of pantheistic evolution and an infinitely old cosmos. In recent times it assumed the form of Darwinism, though men are now returning again to various forms of eastern religion and their systems of pantheistic evolution, still rejecting God as Creator and Christ as Savior. Yet all forms of evolutionism are pseudo-science at best, filled with “profane and vain babblings.” Note the following summary of current scientific evidence against evolutionism.
1. There is no present evolution; only horizontal variations and extinctions.
2. There was no past evolution, only ubiquitous gaps between basic kinds in the fossils.
3. There can be no possible evolution, since universal laws of conservation and decay now govern all natural processes.
4. There has been no time period long enough for evolution, because historical records go back only a few thousand years, and the fossil record speaks only of rapid formation.
5. There is no Biblical evolution (see Genesis 1:25; 2:1-3; I Corinthians 15:38-39).
6. There can have been no theistic evolution, for death came into the world only when man sinned (Romans 5:12; I Corinthians 15:21).
7. There could have been no pantheistic evolution, for God condemns all who worship the creation as its own creator (Romans 1:20-25).
