God and Science

GOD AND SCIENCE….Physics professor Chad Orzel had a scary run-in a few days ago with what passes for teaching science to kids among the editorial staff of Children’s Ministry. A recent issue described a surface tension experiment that doesn’t actually mention surface tension anywhere, followed by this:

It’s even more maddening with their version of the egg-in-the-bottle trick (which is meant to show that with God, nothing is impossible), which includes the explicit instruction to ask the child “Why do you think that happened?” and then doesn’t provide the answer.

So for some of these folks, apparently it’s not enough anymore to simply say that evolution is wrong. Now they’re claiming that even the most mundane kinds of physical phenomena are actually signs that God can do the impossible, even put an egg in a bottle! That’s pathetic.
