Science Alleged Knowledge Falsely So Called

“Instead of making the Bible agree with science, science must agree with the Bible. If it does not, it is only because it is “science falsely so-called,” and not real science. Scientia is the Latin word for knowledge. Whereas very much of what goes by the name of “science” today is not science at all. It is only hypothesis! Read man’s books on this so-called science, and you will get tired of the never-ending repetition of such words as “hypothesis,” “conjecture,” “supposition,” etc., etc. This is the reason that such theories, which are falsely dignified by the name of science, are constantly changing. We talk of the “Science of Geology,” or of “Medical Science;” but read books on geology or medicine, for example, written fifty years ago, and you will find that they are now quite out of date. But truth cannot change. Truth will never be out of date. What we know can never alter! This of itself proves that the word science is wrongly used when it is applied only to hypotheses, which are merely invented to explain certain phenomena. It is not for such theories that we are going to give up facts. It is not for conjectures that we are going to abandon truth.”—E.W. Bullinger (1837-1913) —Number in Scripture, p. 103

The science say’s this and the science say’s that… So it must be truth… Hmmmm… They say this and they say that… So it must be truth… Some people say this and some people say that so it must be true… Simon say’s this and Simon say’s that so it must be true.. Those people professing superior knowledge about anything say this and those people professing superior knowledge about anything say that, and it must be true… And if this or that sounds good the gullible believe it..
