Psychology, Creation, and Awe

A university science project had a good start but was very incomplete. The students wanted to study awe. Different people have a sense of awe in different ways. Saddle up and ride over to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, or maybe venture to Victoria Falls on the  Zambezi River. Perhaps kayaking in Norway will do it for you. I get a sense of awe looking up at the night sky and thinking about our Creator's handiwork. But how can someone measure awe?

University students did a psychological study on the nature of awe. Psychology attempts to replace Christianity with its own materialistic, atheistic, and evolutionary views.

The university study looked good at first, but there were many variables that needed to be included. In addition, psychology is by its nature evolutionary, atheistic, and materialistic , so the research was biased in that direction. Also, it can be debated whether or not psychology as a whole is a science. Worse, psychologists attempt to replace Christianity and creation with a false religion. Awe can best be experienced by getting in touch with the Creator and praising his work.
Psychologists get their hands into everything, but the objectivity of their science is questionable.

People are complex beings. They can be manipulated, but they can also resist manipulation. It’s impossible to know all the background factors and variables they may exhibit in certain situations. Let’s see how well science can measure “awe” – which psychologists at the University of Buffalo took on as a science project. Did they gather true knowledge, or just buffalo their readers?
