The God of All Knowledge Versus “Science”
The Online Etymology Dictionary says that the word science comes from 12th Century Latin. It likely comes from the notion “to separate one thing from another, to distinguish.” The word science eventually became known specifically as “collective human knowledge.” This wasn’t just any knowledge but knowledge gained by systematic observation, experiment, and reasoning. However, collective human knowledge pales in comparison to God’s knowledge, for the omniscient God is the God of all knowledge.
Science Deniers or Truth Deniers
Now, let us consider the Covid-19 pandemic. For someone to say, “I represent science,” is similar to saying, “I am the holder of all human knowledge.” Although limiting oneself to only representing human knowledge instead of all knowledge is an admission of not being a deity, and to be fair, it is nice to know that Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn’t think he is a deity. However, it is still incredibly presumptuous of him to say he represents science. It is even more incredible when systematic observations, experiments, and reasoning are lacking or only exist feebly or insufficiently. Yet, this is precisely what has happened with the Covid-19 virus and vaccine situation. Despite that, Dr. Anthony Fauci said criticizing him was criticizing science, which made matters worse. Additionally, differing opinions regarding observations, experiments, and reasonings were labeled as opinions of science deniers and were blocked from broader distribution.
Some of these same people that label people who question vaccines as science deniers are the ones that deny that there are only two genders of humans. This truth is in the Bible of the God of all knowledge. Genesis 1:27 reads: So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Don’t Be Arrogant
It would be wise for these arrogant scientists who belittle those questioning them to remember Psalm 147:5. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit. It is also worth remembering that 1 Samuel 2: 3 reads, Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows, and by Him deeds are weighed.
The fabric of all civilization is tearing because we continue to diverge from God and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
To paraphrase Lyle C Rollings III, Jesus, the most remarkable man in history, had no servants, yet they called him Master. He had no degree yet called Teacher. Once again, he had no medicines yet called Healer. Jesus did not have an army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. Jesus committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives!
As we remember God on this Thanksgiving Holiday, pray for our restoration to Him, the Omniscient God (The God of all knowledge).
