Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2024-148: The Maybe of Science

Science was originally done by men who believed in truth and were seeking to understand that truth.  That was the basic foundation of the scientific method.  It was based, not on logic alone, but by testing the evidence and looking for the underlying principle.  These were also mostly men of faith.  It was their faith that made them seek truth and believe it could be found.

Science today has rejected the idea of truth and is based on speculation to find potential bits of information or verify obtuse theories.  The wilder the better.  If you wonder why ideas like global warming, vaccines that don’t need to be tested, surgery on young children to mutilate their sexual organs and such can find any traction it is because the leadership in the scientific community has rejected faith and a belief in objective truth.  They are also in the process of rejecting the scientific method of the Christian era and going back to the logic of the Greeks.

Most scientific research today has no application on life.  It has gone beyond the ability to prove you hypothesis because the theories are beyond proof.

We crossed that barrier long ago.
    The speed of light was believed to be an absolute limit.
    That knowledge had no application to your daily life;
        Would not cure cancer,
        Would not deal with the boll weevil,
        Would not tell you whom to marry,
        Would not help you get to work on time,
    Now we have evidence things can go faster.

Much science is pure ego gratification
    Not only not proven

So don’t get too excited when you hear that science “proves” something.  Maybe.  Maybe not.
