Scientists 'have absurd track record'?
Scientists throughout history have a less-than-stellar track record of accuracy, and cannot be counted on to definitively ascertain the origin of life, claims the author of a brand-new book defending the Christian faith.
In “The Magic Man in the Sky,” Carl Gallups, a supporter of the Bible’s creation account, says there’s a world of difference between someone declaring a momentary truth, and the actual “true truth.”
He recalls some ludicrous ideas once steadfastly believed and promoted by the most intelligent people of their day.
“At one point in history, the brilliant minds of the world declared that the earth was flat,” writes Gallups. “A number of great minds proclaimed that the world was held up at the four corners by giant elephants. This was declared as truth. Others thought the sun revolved around the earth. To believe anything different was considered unscientific, to the point of absurdity.
