Does bible and Science contradict?

Well I think they resemble each other in some ways, because both fields are used for us to understand the world around us. Maybe spirituality gives meaning while science explain things.. but there are other things that science can't explain and that's where spirituality begins =D Just an opinion though.. I don't even know if I have a point.

I used to think the bible was to be taken literally and when I began to read in earnest I realized that a lot of it was allegory and should not be taken as facts. Some scientists calculated the age of the universe based on the bible and came up with a wickedly low age: 6000 years. Cheers!!

lotterylover that is simply ridicules. Use theology to tell you how to live but study geology and the other earth sciences to learn how we have lived and evolved. A difference of one thousand years is meaningless when the difference is actually billions of years. You keep making statements like "Those are the scientists that I believe" without ever naming a creditable scientist. The reason you can't name one is because they do not exist.

In many ways, yes. But I never dwell so much on science because there are a lot of phenomena that happens in the world that science failed to explain. Science only answers the "what" but not the "how" and "why". Only bible and Faith in God answers everything. Science may answer the question "what is the beginning of the universe", but they can never give valid explanation "why and how the universe existed", who created it?well, only the Holy Bible has an exact explanation to it. Even the greatest mathematician and scientist of the 20th century agrees that only God is the answers to every question we have.

I have lots of thoughts on this matter, but my latest one is, when I see millions/trillions of life forms on the planet, it's inconceivable that even one by chance formed all needed for life against great and impossible odds (odds rendered by mathameticians) let alone trillions... Chance, time and the inherent properties of matter? How possible when the inherent property of matter is to fall apart? (Not improve.) Or is it just my house, my car... etc..
