Naturalism is not Conducive to Science

Secularists have been somewhat effective in portraying a "war between science and religion" and giving the impression that if someone is going to be a scientist, he or she must have a worldview that is rooted in naturalism. That is, no non-atheists need apply. Such propaganda utterly false, and one example is the dishonest use of the Scopes "Monkey Trial".

Secular humanists have been promoting the idea that to be a scientist, atheistic naturalism is required. But that worldview makes science impossible to conduct and remain consistent with such a philosophy.

If you study on the propaganda and do a little research, you'll see that it's ridiculous. The founders of modern science were Christians, and many of those were biblical creationists. Science depends on methods that are repeatable, testable, observable, and so forth. An atheistic worldview is incoherent, with random processes of evolution as one of it's main foundations. You can't do science that way. Meanwhile, there have been and still are many people who believe the Bible and do science quite well.
Many people today insist that science can only be done by people who have a secular worldview—or at least by those who are willing to leave their religious views at the door as they enter the science lab. Several popular atheists and evolutionists have contended that people who reject the big bang and the evolution of living things are so backward that they cannot even be involved in developing new technologies. But is this really the case, or are these opponents of a biblical worldview simply making assertions that cannot be supported with facts and substantial arguments, having an incorrect understanding of true science?

A friend of the ministry was recently challenged by the comment that science can only be done through a purely secular evolutionary framework. We have decided to publish a response for the sake of teaching. Such statements are blatantly absurd and are a type of arbitrary fallacy called an “ignorant conjecture.” In other words, these people simply do not know the past, nor are they familiar with what science really is.
