These two areas apparently is contradictory to each other. There were things written in the bible which are opposed by the scientific explanations and otherwise. Bible also questions some ethics in scientific procedures. There are also things that science can explain that cannot be found in the bible. Now, in which area you more likely to believe in?

As a Christian, i have to believe in the bible more thsn science. TYhe bible is the word of God given to us to live our lives in the way that God intended. Science is something that was created by God , but interepreted by man.

But question: What is the word of God? What is God? Can you define God? Didn't man write the Bible? Doesn't the Bible have several authors? Aren't they all just stories? How does God come down from the Heavens and tell people what to right? What is the logic behind all of this? Isn't God just a figment of some people's imaginations? What proof is there that God is real? Have you ever seen God? What God look like to you? Why do you call him God?

Science is what I'd use to stay alive and survive in this world. I don't believe in the bible parts of it may be true but it's been so long who knows how it's been altered by some evil cretin. I was going to say the bible would be a good bedtime story but we'd have to be careful if you're reading to a kid as it may give them nightmares.

You actually have a point, parrot2010. It may be altered at some times.

science is what we are living on and what we consider we think of for our future survival, well but Bible is just for faith that we have in our minds and to trust on

Can't we survive just by abiding to our faith? Just a thought.

I think people have many directions on the road of their life, and we are always confused about how to choose it. If we have a faith or our own principles it may be much easier to have a choice.

Science is more tangible, realistic and has a rational explanation,while the Bible only has "Faith". Nothing but words to provide their believers, it is very hard for me to take my side on this one. Science is trying to explain the Bible, but what the Bible trying to do is only condemn science, now think about it. If we question science, they provide us with hard evidence, but if we question the Bible, they only tell us to have "Faith" in the "Words". What's up with that? Science is our present and our future, Bible is only our past.

Very good ideas my friend :) but we have don't have the same arguments about this issue. I believe the Bible over science. The Bible’s account of beginnings cannot be tested in a laboratory, so secular scientists and even some Christians believe it is not science and must be classified as religion. Secular scientists claim that their view of beginnings (evolution) can be tested in a laboratory, so their view is scientific. For instance, they point to mutated fruit flies or speciation observed in the field (such as new species of mosquitoes or fish). Indeed. “Evolution is science, but the Bible is religion.” (source;www.answersingenesis.org)

I gotta go with the Bible. I think it and science actually compliment each other. I don't see the contradiction.. but you can point it out if you'd like....

May we consider the origin of the world. They both have their own explanation.

i believe both of course. there are many things in science that agrees with what the bible says, and there are things in bible i could not understand yet and no bible scholars have understand yet and so we just have the science to believe in. but for now if it is clear or very clear explained in the bible then i will believe it first than science. as long as what is the bible is so simple that no simple can put it wrong context or give another meaning. cause many times people can misinterpret it as people tend to explain it according to their own understanding and not really what is should really mean.

I believe in Science because science can always be proven, but it is very hard to prove the Bible. I know that some parts of the Bible have been proven, but not all of it.

First of all i must indicate that am a staunch christian. So i do believe in God very much. He created the Heavens and Earth. One thing that startles me with science is that they say we (Human beings) have evolved from the monkey family which to me is nosense. Man was created by God and we have nothing in common with the monkeys as the scientists have always suggested. I mean our IQ is way beyond the monkeys in all respects. So the Bible is the way to go my dear brother. The Bible is a devine revelation from our God Almighty and therefore before one can truly understands it should highly be dedicated and focused. You can't read it like any ordinary book. It is imperative that you become a christian and belong to the Body of Christ first and foremost. And then, that's where it will make sense to you or get a thorough explanation from a devoted christian/Pastor and only then will it be meaningful to you. It is highly spiritual.

Being a Christian, I believe in the bible. I have faith in God and I trust in God. There are things that science cannot explain and there are those that can. Well, I do not find it very much contradicting. Well, if you do not have faith, then there is not much to believe in the bible most especially if you ask for an explanation. But there are those that happened in the bible that has been proven true by science. Well, I do not condemned science since it is based on facts. But I also do not say that the bible is not true considering that I have this faith.

I heard some scientist using religious writings as base for their researches. Since in the religious writings such as The Bible, have hidden meanings of certain "divine" theory which may interpret in such ways of decoding methods. I not refer it to the "da Vinci Code" movie but it's may be true. We are not aware of our lack of attention to study the Bible and knowing it's meaning and convert it to Scientific way of research to result something for human kind benefits. For me, either Science or Bible, I neither have bayous believe on either one of each side, just that believe everyday, doing a good thing is enough for happy life.

Science, of course. When I was young, at a religious discourse the debate was about this same dilemma. Without conceding the point the speakers agreed on one point - religion, in this case the bible, begins where science ends. Since that time which was more than 50 years ago, science made rapid strides and unravelled lots of so called mysteries and is continuing to do so. So faith in bible is obviously getting shrunk. Even so, entire humanity cannot change and faith in bible, or for that matter any religion, cannot be removed altogether. My vote of course is for science.

I really believe in science because it really gives us exact definition of the problems occured or the things surrounds us,But in Bible theres a lot of question that cannot be seen and concluded by the science like HOW DOES HUMAN CREATED AT First? Though we Know that science gives us that ways of how to make Human,But who is the FIRST CREATOR?

I really dont think they contradict at all. I think science is just trying to have their own explanation. Its kinda weired why science is trying to explain more and look for more complicated things when in fact there are a lot of explanation in the bible and all we need is faith to believe in it.
