THE BIBLE IS FILLED WITH SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION!

 

The Bible and Science

“In antiquity and in what is called the Dark Ages, man did not know what they now know about humanity and the cosmos.  They did not know the lock but they possessed the key, which is God.   Now many have excellent descriptions of the lock, but they have lost the key.  The proper solution is union between religion and science..  We should be owners of the lock and the key.  The fact is that as science advances, it discovers what was said thousand of years ago in the Bible”. – Richard Wurmbrand, Proofs of God’s Existence

 

Science and Genesis

Scientists admit Genesis is “Close to the Truth” – and they get a little nervous when  they realize that their discoveries lead them back to Genesis Chapter one.  Notice the use of the word “uncanny” in the following quotes:

 

“Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imaging and initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth:.(Time ,Dec. 1976)  “The universe suddenly exploded into being….The big bang bears and uncanny resemblance to the Genesis command:.  – Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal

 

Science writer.  “New scientific revelations about supernovas, black holes, quarks, and the big bang even suggest to some scientists that there is a “Grand Design” in the universe”. – {U.S. News & world report, March 31, 1997}

 

Genesis Explains the Origin of Sexes

Almost all forms of complex life have both male and female—Horses, dogs, humans, moths, monkeys, fish elephants, birds, etc.  The male needs the female to reproduce, and the female needs the male to reproduce.  One cannot carry on life without the other. The Bible tells us that “He who made them at the beginning made them male and female” (Mathew 19:4)

But if evolution is true, which then came first according to the evolutionary theory?

If a male came into being before a female how did the male of each species reproduce without females?  How is it possible that a male and a female each spontaneously came into being, yet they have complex, complimentary reproductive systems?  If each sex was able to reproduce without the other why (and how) would they have developed a reproductive system that requires both sexes in order for the species to survive?

 

Genesis and the Universe

Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space and matter, power, and motion.  Genesis 1:1, 2 perfectly revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: “In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter]….And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters.” the first things that God tells man are that He controls all aspects of the universe.

 

Scientist and the Bible

“Many of the great scientists of the past who founded and developed the key disciplines of science were creationists!”

 

Note the following sampling:

 

Physics: Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, Kelvin

Chemistry: Boyle, Dalton, Ramsay,

Biology: Ray, Linnaeus, Mendel, Pastuer

Geology: Steno, Woodward, Brewster, Agassiz

Astronomy: Kepler, Galileo, Herschel, Maunder

 

“These men, as well as scores of others who could be mentioned, were creationists, not evolutionists, and their names are practically synonymous with the rise of modern science.  To them, the scientific enterprise was a high calling, one dedicated to thinking “God’s thoughts after Him.”  – Henry M. Morris and Gary E. Parker, What is Creation Science?

 

The Bible and the Universal Flood

“About 85% of the rock, surface around the world is made up of sedimentary rock, indicating that at some time in the past, the world was covered by water.”  – Peter and Paul Lalonde, 301 Startling Proofs & Prophecies

 

Genesis Differentiates Man from Animals

The Bible tells us that animals are created “without understanding.” We are made in God’s “IMAGE”. We aren’t merely a higher form of species on the evolutionary scale. As human beings, we are aware of our “BEING”.  God is “I AM”, and we know that “we are”.  We have understanding that we exist. Among other unique characteristics, we have an innate ability to appreciate God’s creation.  What animal gazes with awe at a sunset, or at the magnificence of the Grand Canyon?

 

What animal obtains joy from the sounds of music or takes the time to form itself into an orchestra to create and harmonize music?  What animal among beasts sets up court systems and apportions justice to its fellow creatures? We are moral beings.

 

While birds and other creatures have instincts to create (nest etc.), we have the ability to uncover the hidden laws of electricity.  We can utilize the law of aerodynamics to transport ourselves around the globe. We also have the God given ability to appreciate the value of creation.  We unearth the hidden treasures of gold, silver, diamonds, and oil and make use of them for our own benefit.  Only humans have the unique capability to appreciate God for this incredible creation and to respond to His Love.

 

The Bible Speaks of one Common Ancestor

“Researchers suggest the virtually all modern men—- 99% of them, say one scientist—are closely related genetically and share genes with one male ancestor, dibbed ‘y–chromosome Adam’.  We are finding out that humans have very, very shallow genetic roots which go back very recently to one ancestor…That indicates that there was an origin in a specific location on the globe, and then it spread out from there”.  – (U.S. News & World Report, December 4, 1995)

 

The Bible Reveals that the Earth is Round

The Scriptures tell us the earth is round: “It is He that sits upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22). The word translated “circle” here is Hebrew word chuwg, which is also translated “circuit” or “compass” depending on the context. That is, it indicates something spherical, rounded, or arched—not something that is flat or square.  The book of Isaiah was written sometime between 740 and 680 B.C…  This is at least 300 years before Aristotle suggested, in his book On the Heavens, that the earth might be a sphere.  It was another 2000 years later (at a time when science believed that the earth was flat) that the Scriptures inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world.

 

The Bible and Earth’s Free-Float in Space

At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant [1500 B.C.] the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space:  “He… hangs the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7). Science didn’t discover that the earth hangs upon nothing until 1650. The Scriptures Speak of an Invisible Structure.

 

Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of things that we cannot see—-invisible atoms.  In Hebrew 11:3, written 2000 years ago, Scripture tells us that the “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear”.

 

The Bible and the Science of Oceanography

Matthew Maury {1806-1873} we considered the father of oceanography. He noticed the (expression “paths of the sea” in Psalm 8:8 – written 2800 years ago – and said, “If God said there are paths in the sea, I am going to find them.”  Maury then took God at His word and went looking for these paths, and we are indebted to his discovery of the warm and cold continental currents.  His book on oceanography remains a basic text on the subject and is still used in universities.

 

The Bible and the First Law of Thermodynamics

The Scriptures say, “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them” (Genesis 2:1).  The original Hebrew uses the past definite tense for the verb “finished”, indicating an action completed in the past, never again to occur.  The creation was “finished”—once and for all.  That is exactly what the First Law of Thermodynamics says.  This law (often referred to as the Law of the Conservation of Energy and /or Mass) states that neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed.

 

It was because of the law that Sir Fred Hoyle’s “Steady State” (or Continuous Creation’) Theory was discarded.  Hoyle stated that at points in the universe called “irtrons,’ matter (or energy) was constantly being created.  But, the First Law states just the opposite.  Indeed, there was no “creation” ongoing today.  It is “finished” exactly as the Bible states.

 

The Law of Entropy

Three different places in the Bible (Isaiah 51:6; Psalm 102:25; and Hebrews 1:11) indicate that the earth is wearing out. The second law of science is the law of Entropy.  This second Law of Thermodynamic describes the fact that all systems and the elements of the universe tend to disintegrate to a lower order of available energy or organization.  Everything is running down and wearing out as energy is becoming less and less available for use. Another way of expressing this universal fact of entropy is to note that, over time, all things whether a house or a sword, will tend to disintegrate to dust or rust, a lower order of organization than the original house or sword.  Throughout history, mankind has observed that everything, from a human body to a castle, begins to decay from the moment of maximum amount of order or organized information at the beginning until, years later, the object ceases to function.

 

When you think seriously about this universal principle, you can immediately see that this principle proves that it is absolutely impossible for the theory of evolution to be true.  Evolution suggests that a; simple systems and elements become increasingly more organized and complicated by random chance.  However, common sense and scientific observation have proven that all systems and elements over time tend to disintegrate to something less organized and less useful.  In fact, the second Law of Thermodynamics, the Law of Entropy, absolutely roes the theory of evolution is nonsense.

 

Consider the implications.  The Law of Conservation of Energy proves that the universe could not have created itself.  It had to be created by a supernatural force outside the universe.  “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).  However, the Law of Entropy shows that the whole universe is running down as it decays to a lower order of available energy.  This fact reveals that the universe must have been created at some point in the past and has been running down like a clock ever since that initial moment of creation.  The current evolutionary theory that postulates a universe that was created from nothing by itself is totally contradicted by all the known laws of science.

 

In addition the Law of Entropy reveals that the universe must have been created at some definite point in the past to account for the fat that all scientific observation confirms that everything continues to decay.     As an example, the fact that the sun burns up its nuclear fuel, at the rate of l200, 000 nuclear explosions every second, provides the enormous radiation that floods our solar system.  However, since it is burning up its store of fuel, logic declares that there must have been a point in time somewhere in the distant past when the sun was created and began this process.

 

Daytime/Night Time and Interesting Astronomy

The Gospel writer Luke described the coming of Christ in the daytime as follows:

” Even thus shall it be in the day when   the Son of man is revealed.”-  Luke described the same event by declaring that Christ will come in the night:  “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left”

(Luke 17:34). To the natural mind of his day, Luke’s words must have sounded like a contradiction.  How could a single event, the coming of the Messiah, occur simultaneously “in the day” and “in the night”?  This statement by Luke must have appeared impossible and contradictory at any time from the first century until recently.  However, we can now understand that, on whatever day Christ returns. It will be a daytime event for those on one side of the globe while the event will occur during the night for those living on the other side of the planet.  How could Luke have known this scientific fact two thousand years ago?

 

The Psalmist David wrote a wonderful song of praise to God in recognition of the awesome glory of the heavens that he could witness from the roof of his palace in Jerusalem:  “Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world.  In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, which is like bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices like a strong man to run its race. Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end; and there is nothing hidden from its heat” (Psalm 19:4-6).  In his song of praise King David declared that the sun traveled in “his circuit unto the ends of it (the heavens)” During the last few centuries many Bible critics denounced this statement as inaccurate because they falsely claimed the Bible’s statement declared that the sun moved in and orbit around the earth.  However, the Bible never made that claim.  The Scriptures declare the sun moved “in his circuit unto the ends of it (the heavens)”.  Recent discoveries by the Hubble Telescope confirmed the accuracy of the Scriptures when they proved that the sun actually moves through space in a circuit covering an enormous orbit that lasts over two hundred and sixty million years.

 

One of the most curious scientific revelations in the Bible regarding astronomy was pointed out by my friend David Harris an astronomer from Toronto, Canada.  This statement is found in the Book of Amos where we read about the seven stars in the constellation known as Pleiades.  The King James Version translators set out the verse Amos 5:8 as “Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion” (Amos 5:8).  The King James Version translators confirmed that Amos’ original Hebrew statement about “the seven stars “referred to the constellation Pleiades.  However, modern translators render this verse as, “He made the Pleiades and Orion” (Amos 5:8) NKJV. 

 

Early translators were puzzled by this verse because there were only six stars that could be seen by the naked eye in the constellation Pleiades.  Now, however, modern telescopes have revealed the existence of a seventh star in Pleiades; it is so dim that only a telescope can detect it.  How else did Amos know that there were “seven stars” in the constellation unless God told him?  The Bible was correct all along in its description of “seven stars” as recorded by the prophet Amos over twenty-five centuries ago.

 

The Law of Conservation of Energy

After exhaustive experiments, modern scientists have developed two fundamental laws of the science of thermodynamics that describe the nature of our known universe.

The first law is the Law of Conservation of Energy which reveals that “energy can be neither created nor destroyed.”  The Law of conservation of Energy was explained by the science writer Isaac Asimov as follows:” Energy can be transferred from one place to another, or transformed from one form to another, but it can neither create not destroyed.”

 

In other words, this law states the whole amount of energy that exists throughout our universe remains constant and can never change.  For Example, when they explode a nuclear device, the uranium 235 and plutonium within the warhead are not annihilated. The matter is simply transformed into a staggering release of heat and light energy.  Every experiment has confirmed this Law of Conservation of Energy as the most basic fundamental understanding of the universe works.  This law describes the present state of the universe after its initial creation by God.

 

Although this fundamental law of the universe was only discovered and proven scientifically during the last century, the Word of God recorded this principle thousands of years ago.  Moses wrote in Genesis:  “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all work which God created and made” (Genesis 2:2, 3)  This inspired passage clearly declares that when God completed the creation of man on the sixth day, “He rested from all His work which he had made”.

 

After He created man on the sixth day, His work was complete; this accounts for the First Law of Conservation of Energy.  In addition, the Scriptures reveal why nothing can now be either totally destroyed or annihilated because Jesus Christ, who created all things, is “upholding all things by the word of His power”  (Hebrew 1:3)  In another passage the writer of the Book of Hebrews declared that Jesus, the Creator of the universe, had finished His acts of creation:  “For he that is entered into his rest he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (Hebrews 4:10).

 

Law of Probabilities Confirms Genesis 

The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way [through evolution] is comparable to the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.”

“The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one out of 10×10 to the 40,000…It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution.  There was no primeval soup, neither on this planer nor on any other and if the beginnings of life were not random, the must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence.” Sir Fred Hoyle, professor of astronomy, Cambridge University.

 

Medical Science and the Bible – (The Bible and the Laws of Hygiene)

Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals.  As many as 30% died after child birth.  Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers.  This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown.

 

Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before each examination, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2%.

 

Look at the specific instructions God gave thousands of years ago to His people for when they encountered disease:   “And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean” (Leviticus 15:13).  Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands.  However, the Bile says specifically to wash under “running water”.

 

The Bible and the Correlation of Mind and Body

Medical science has come to understand that there is a strong relationship between a person’s mental and physical health.  The Bible revealed this to us with these statements [and others] written around 950 B.C.

  • “A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy is the rottenness of the bones” (Proverbs 14:30).
  • “The light of the eyes rejoices the heart: and a good report makes the bones fat and healthy” (Proverbs 15:30).
  • “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones” (Proverbs 16:24).
  • “A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones” (Proverbs 17:22).

 

The Bible and Bacteria

“And … neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs” (Exodus 22:31). Thousands of years before modern science identified bacteria, God make provision for Israel by banning the eating of meat that may be spoiled by bacteria.”  – Richard Gunther

 

The Incredible Book of Job

 

Book of Job (1520 B.C.) – Filled with scientific facts

The study of the Book of Job and its comparison with the latest scientific discoveries has brought me to the matured conviction that the Bible is an inspired book and was written by the One who made the stars” – Charles Burckhalter,  Chabot Observatory.

 

Job and the Springs of the Sea

“Modern deep-sea diving camera have discovered amazing hot-water vents on the floor of the oceans–’the springs of the sea’, which are mentioned in Job 38:16.  These thermal vents release huge amounts of mineral-rich, super-heated water—springs in the darkness” – Richard Gunther

 

The Book of Job and Light

“Sir Isaac Newton studied light and discovered that white light is make of seven colors, which can be parted from the white(see Job 38:24), and then recombined to make white again.  Science discovered this in 1650.” –  Richard Gunther

 

The Book of Job and the Way of Light

The book of Job 38:19 asks, “Where is the way where light dwells?”  Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a “way” in empty space this speed is approximately 186,000 miles per second.

 

The Book of Job and the Dinosaurs

Why did dinosaurs disappear?  Science can only speculate.  However, the answer may be in Job 40:15-24.  In this passage, God Himself speaks of a great creature called “behemoth.”  Some Bible commentators think this is a reference to the hippopotamus.  However, one of the characteristics of this massive animal is that it had a tail the size of a large tree.  The hippo’s tail isn’t like a tree; it is more like a small twig.

 

Here are all the given characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating [herbivorous]; had its strength in its hips, and a tail like a large tree.  It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amount of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river.  He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but scripture says, “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.”  In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct.

 

The Book of Job and Air Mass

“Scripture tell us in Job 28:25 that there is ‘a weight for the wind.’ Long before it was recognized that the air had weight (sixteenth century); the Bible said that it did.  It also tells us that water has weight.  The fact that so much water covers the earth means that the effects of the sun and moon’s gravity are balanced perfectly.  The energy is dissipated in the water—the weight of the water is precisely measured.”  Richard Gunther

 

The Book of Job and the Earth’s Rotation

For ages, scientists believed in a geocentric view of the universe.  The differences between night and day were believed to be caused by the sun revolving around the earth. Today, we know that the earth’s rotation on its axis is responsible for the sun’s rising and setting.  But 4000 years ago, t was written,” Have you commanded the morning since your days; and caused the day spring [dawn] to know his place?…..It [the earth] is turned as clay to the seal” Job 38:12, 14].  The picture here is of a clay vessel being turned or rotated upon the potter’s wheel–and accurate analogy of the earth’s rotation.

 

The Bible and Meteorological Laws

The Scriptures describe a “cycle “of air currents two thousand years before scientists discovered them:  “The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits” (Ecclesiastes 1:6). We now know that air around the earth turns in huge circles, clockwise in one hemisphere and counterclockwise in the other.

 

The Bible and the Water Cycle

The Scriptures inform is, “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, there they return again” (Ecclesiastes 1:7).  This statement alone may not seem profound.  But when considered with other biblical passages, it becomes all the more remarkable.  For example, the Mississippi River dumps approximately 518 billion gallons of water every 24 hours into the Gulf of Mexico.  Where does all that water go? And that’s just one of thousands of rivers.  The answer lies in the hydrologic cycle, so well brought out in the Bible. Ecclesiastes 11:3 states that “if the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth.”  Look at the Bibles concise words in Amos 9:6: “Who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth — The Lord is His name.”  The idea of a complete water cycle was not fully understood by science until the seventeenth century.  However, more than two thousand years prior to the discoveries of Pierre Perrault, Edmund Mariotte, Edmund Halley, and others, the Scriptures clearly spoke of a water cycle.

 

The Bible Speaks of a Specific Design

“Slight variations in physical laws such as gravity or electromagnetism would make life impossible. The necessity to produce life lies at the center of the universe’s whole machinery and design”. – John Wheeler, Princeton University professor of physics {Readers digest, September 1986}

 

   Even evolutionist Stephen Hawking, considered the best-known scientist since Albert Einstein, acknowledges “the universe and the laws of physics seem to have been specially designed for us.  If any one of about 40 physical qualities had more than slightly different values, life as we know it could not exist: Either atoms would not be stable , or they wouldn’t combine into molecules, or the stars wouldn’t form the heavier elements, or the universe would collapse before life could develop, and so on…” – {Austin American Statesman, October 19,1997}

 

The Bible and Ship Dimensions

In Genesis 6, God gave Noah the dimensions of the 1.5 million cubic foot ark he was to build.  In 1609 at Hoorn in Holland, a ship was built after that same pattern revolutionizing ship building.  By 1900 every large ship on the high seas was inclined toward the proportions of the ark – verified by “Lloyd’s Register of Shipping” in the World Almanac.

  • The Bible first gave laws of quarantine:  It is very important to keep people who have infectious diseases isolated from the general population (Leviticus 7:13-46).

 

  • The Bible made recommendations regarding the immune system:  The Bible instructed that all male babies would be circumcised on the eighth day.  It is no coincidence that on this day our immune system is at its highest peak, according to medical science (Genesis 17:12).

 

  • The Bible speaks of a universal flood: Geologically, the earth is covered by a sedimentary rock layer that has billions of dead things called fossils contained within it.  This indicates that some time in the past, the world was covered by water and all life was destroyed (Genesis 6).

 

 

The Bible and Fat Intake

The American Heart Association says: The major kinds of fats in the foods we eat are saturated, poly-unsaturated, monounsaturated, and Tran’s fatty acids.  Saturated fats, Tran’s fats, and dietary cholesterol raise blood cholesterol.  A high level of cholesterol in the blood is a major risk for coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack.”

In reference to prostate cancer, a study by the University of Pennsylvania Cancer /Center stated, “The fourth most common cause of cancer among men may be related to saturated fat consumption.”

Saturated fats come from animals.  In Leviticus 7:22-24 we are told, “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying you shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

 

GO BLOW UP A JUNKYARD

It’s funny how scientists think! Men with college degrees profess they believe the universe started in an explosion called “The Big Bang.” But that’s like trying to build an automobile by blowing up a junkyard!!!  Have you ever seen an explosion produce something with working parts to it?  Neither have we.

However, the universe is extremely complex.  And has a hundred billion working parts, called galaxies.  While each galaxy in turn has a hundred billion working parts of its own,  called stars, as an added example

Our solar system is a tiny cog in the clockwork of the cosmos.  But it has parts that work so precisely we can forecast an eclipse of the sun thousands of years ahead of time to the very minute!!!  Not even Swiss watches are that finely engineered!!!!

So the Big Bang is not “Scientific” after all.  It violates the second law of Thermodynamics:  That a state of order can not arise spontaneously [unaided] from a state of chaos.  There’s no conflict, though, between the 2nd law of thermodynamics and the Genesis account of creation – in fact, in this case, the Bible agrees with science better then the Big Bang does!!!

WAS YOUR PROFESSOR A BACTERIUM?

Did you know Scientists cannot document organic evolution from fossils?  It’s true!!  According to evolutionary theory, life developed step by step, like this: single cell bacteria – worm with no backbone – fish with backbone – amphibian with lungs –  reptile with scales –  mammal with hair –  ape with no tail –  college professor with degree!!!

Now, if evolution is a fact, then it had to “create,” one after the other.  Millions of new complex organic designs in order to change a bacterium into a college professor.

But scientists can not show us even one series of fossils to document the step by step progression from single bacteria to many celled worms; or boneless worms to vertebrate fish’ or reptile scales to bird feathers; or legs to wings; etc. etc.

And they can’t because there are no transitional series in the fossil record whatsoever___ only empty gaps from one fossil species to another. They don’t know what to do with the gaps and call them [discontinuities]. But empty gaps are what we should expect if life forms were created fully developed.  Thus the Bible fits the fossils data and evolution doesn’t!!!

Did God create our “brains” with a God consciousness, or is religion a “cultural virus” as Dawkins an evolutionary atheist contends?

 

Our Brains are Wired up for God

Leigh Dayton, Science writer | March 10, 2009  Article from:  The Australian

The brain of every human being, from believers to atheists, has been revealed to contain at least three “god spots”, all linked to religious beliefs and thoughts.  A team of US researchers has obtained strong evidence that religiosity is managed by the same parts of the brain that are used every day to interpret other people’s moods and intentions and to analyze experiences.

Moreover, the spots exist in the brains of ordinary people, not just those whose extraordinary religious experiences have been triggered by brain injury or neurological conditions like epilepsy.  Scientists, philosophers and theologians have long argued about whether religious belief is a biological or a sociological phenomenon. Britain’s

controversial evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins contends that religion is essentially a cultural virus, spread from brain to brain.  Others argue that it arises from the structure of the brain itself.

The new findings by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland — obtained by non-invasive brain scans of 26 Americans — have gone far to resolving the debate.  Jordan Grafman and his colleagues wrote in the US journal – “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” – that the evolution of the brain networks that handle religious thoughts “was likely driven by their primary roles in social (thinking), language and logical reasoning”.  According to University of NSW evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks, the study shows that religion taps into existing parts of the brain that evolved to handle complex social interactions.  “It exploits existing parts of our brain,” Associate Professor Brooks suggested.

He agreed with the US team that, regardless of whether god existed, the work showed that religious beliefs did exist and could be studied rigorously.  Dr Grafman’s group broke down religious belief into three “psychological” components: god’s perceived emotion, god’s involvement with the world and doctrinal, or knowledge, aspects of religion.

They then used functional magnetic resonance imaging to watch what went on in the brains of volunteers as they evaluated statements about religious belief.  The scans revealed that the volunteers’ brains evaluated the actions of other people in the same way they contemplated god’s mood and involvement with humanity.  The imaging also pinpointed an association between a person’s previous religious teachings and a part of the brain involved in memory and speech.
