Science does not have all the answers (despite what many scientists want to tell us!). Here is a quantum physics mystery that has baffled the best and brightest minds. Even Albert Einstein called this “spooky actions at a distance.”
Watch this short video and see what you think…
A few other Einstein quotes come to mind:
“There are only two ways to live your life: one is as if everything is a miracle, the other is as though nothing is a miracle.”
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”
“Even though the realms of religion and science in themselves are clearly marked off from each other, nevertheless there exist between the two strong reciprocal relationships and dependencies … The situation may be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”
“Every one who is seriously engaged in the pursuit of science becomes convinced the laws of nature manifest the existence of a spirit vastly superior to that of men, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.”

Modern-day scientists want to exclude the very mention of God from anything. This is not science, but scientism. It is a belief system as surely as any religion is.
But the one thing scientism overlooks is the reliance on God that the greatest scientific minds in the world had.
“Oh You who through the light of nature has aroused in us a longing for the light of grace, so that we may be raised in the light of Your Majesty, to You, I give thanks, Creator and Lord, that You allow me to rejoice in Your works. Praise the Lord you heavenly harmonies, and you who know the revealed harmonies. For from Him, through Him and in Him, all is, which is perceptible as well as spiritual; that which we know and that which we do not know, for there is still much to learn.” —Johannes Kepler, the astronomer who discovered the laws of planetary motion
“It is reasonable to believe, however, that the Creator, if He paid attention to the relation of the orbits [of the planets] in their general aspect, paid attention also to the relation of the varying distances of the individual orbits in detail….” —Johannes Kepler
“Nevertheless, all the observations which could possibly be made in so short a time, I was enabled, by Divine Providence, to complete….” —Jeremiah Horrox, astronomer who used Kepler’s principles to chart the orbit of Venus
“All these facts were discovered and observed a few days ago by the help of a telescope devised by me, through God’s grace first enlightening my mind.” —Galileo Galilei, mathematician, philosopher and astronomer
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” —Galileo Galilei
“In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God’s existence.” —Sir Isaac Newton, physicist and mathematician
“This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.” —Isaac Newton
“We are compelled to acknowledge the effect of a cause; chance alone could not have given a form nearly circular to the orbit of all the planets.” —Pierre Simon, one of the fathers of the scientific revolution
“Only the mediocre are always at their best. If your standards are low, it is easy to meet those standards every single day, every single year. But if your standard is to be the best, there will be days when you fall short of that goal. It is okay to not win every game. The only problem would be if you allow a loss or a failure to change your standards. Keep your standards intact, keep the bar set high, and continue to try your very best every day to meet those standards. If you do that, you can always be proud of the work that you do.” —Mike Krzyzewski
“Spectacular achievements are always preceded by unspectacular preparation.” —Roger Staubach
“Christians who serve in ‘secular’ vocations are the ones who do most of the ministry and kingdom-expansion work that happens in the world. It’s the job of vocational ministers [pastors] to equip these folks so they can do their various ministries effectively.” Read more from Jon Bloom in his post Christian, Your Job Is A Ministry Job.
“One of the most important decisions we make is almost always made without thought, without discussion: ‘How big do you want this to be?’ It’s a question that always gets in the way of, ‘How good do you want this to be?’” —Seth Godin
Scientism keeps trying to find evidence to fit their theories (like this latest one to explain the absence of global warming), but few seldom recognize the genius of Our Creator. Sad…

“Think lightly of hell, and you will think lightly of the Cross. Think little of the sufferings of lost souls, and you will soon think little of the Savior Who delivers you from them. God grant we may not live to see such a Christ-dishonoring theology dominant in our times.” —Charles Spurgeon
I share a lot of quotes from Charles Haddon Spurgeon, but perhaps you may not be as familiar with him. Here is a real short biography on a man called The Prince Of Preachers.
“From the moment a creature becomes aware of God as God and of itself as self, the terrible alternative of choosing God or self for the center is opened to it. This sin is committed daily by young children and ignorant peasants as well as by sophisticated persons, by solitaries no less than by those who live in society: it is the fall in every individual life, and in each day of each individual life, the basic sin behind all particular sins: at this very moment you and I are either committing it, or about to commit it, or repenting it.” —C.S. Lewis

David Wilkerson says, “God has given us a powerful weapon to use against any attack on our faith. ” Read more in his post The Great Cloud Of Witnesses.
Science becomes scientism when it is more speculation and theory than it is facts. Here is a case in point: this article about climate change talks about trying to get people to not just look at data, but tries to sell its model/simulation.
I love this! Stop trying to perform for God. It’s holding you back.

“O that you and I might have this blessed combination in ourselves; to win the high opinion of others, so far as it can be gained by integrity, by uprightness, and by decision of character, and yet at the same time to walk humbly with our God!” —Charles Spurgeon

“God uses appropriate doses of guilt to awaken us to sin. His guilt brings enough regret to change us. satan’s guilt, on the other hand, brings enough regret to enslave us. Don’t let him lock his shackles on you.” —Max Lucado
