A recent survey by Pew Research Center gathered data from more than 2,000 respondents on the thorny relationship between science and religion. The findings indicate a perplexing result: Among the nonreligious, who rarely or never attend religious services, 76 percent saw conflict between religion and science — versus only 50 percent of those who attend church religiously.

Is it billions of years old, like scientific data, or is it thousands of years, like Biblical data? When we add up the generations of the Bible and then add the secular rulers that followed, we come to fewer than 6000 years. Whereas, data from the Hubbell telescope or from the land based telescopes in Hawaii, indicate the number at 15 billion years plus or minus 10%. In trying to resolve this apparent conflict, I use only ancient biblical commentary because modern commentary already knows modern science, and so it is influenced by what science always.

The Daniel Comparison Although this post isn't part of the Revelation Series that we've been covering in class, I thought it would be a good time to add it to the mix because of recent events in the Middle East. By now we’ve all heard the news that the Muslim world is in a state of chaos that hasn't been seen for centuries, with spiritual fires raging from Morocco to Egypt to Iran.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
