Thinx 38: Rightly handling the word of truth?

we refuse to ... tamper with God's word
-- 2 Corinthians 4:2b RSV
But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully;
-- 2 Corinthians 4:2b WEB
Everytime we attempt to harmonise Science with the Bible, it is always the Bible that ends up getting tampered with and adulterated, not that of the naturalist / materialist / humanist. It's the Word of God that gets the scissors and glue treatment, not the textbooks on anthropology, geology, biology and astronomy. Stop talking about harmonising Science with the Bible when you actually mean the opposite: harmonising the Bible with Science!

As the years roll on, Science 'discovers' what God has been telling us since the beginning. For instance the Bible tells us that every colour of skin is descended from Eve. And now the Human Genome Project agrees. Is this a once in a million? You wish!

What is Science anyway, and what does it mean to be 'scientific'?
