T 9/20 Dr. Ronald Marks Lecture-“The Hermeneutics Of Science: You Cannot Not Beg The Question” (90 min), 7:00pm Hamlin Recital Hall (TICKET REQUIRED)

Dr. Ronald Marks will present research regarding the hermeneutics of science.  The question of the Earth’s age cannot be answered by a simple examination of the physical evidence. The process of examining the evidence must also be examined.  A common misunderstanding is that science is an unbiased, trustworthy purveyor of truth.  The process of “doing science” relies on and is influenced by a philosophical foundation.  Instead, proclamations from science must be examined in light of the worldview of the scientist and the community of science.  Failing to do so can often result in a view consistent with modern culture that emphasizes a belief that science and Christianity are incompatible and often in conflict. Instead, a Biblical view of science, the history of the earth, and of knowledge must account for our biases. This is one of many reasons to use an external truth source – which the Bible is – as a gage for knowing “what is true”.
