Nuclear Physicist Declares: ‘Science Will Never Contradict The Bible’
Brandon van der Ventel, a nuclear physicist, has recently spoken out against the theory of evolution. Ventel is also urging Christians that the public denial of Genesis isn’t a matter that should be taken lightly.
Ventelk, who holds a Ph D. from South Africa’s Stellenbosch University, emphasized the importance of having a worldwide biblical view in an interview with Christian News Network.
“The denial of the Genesis account is not a matter to be taken lightly by Christians, if the biblical record is not true, then we are left with naturalism and atheism, of which the consequences are truly horrific.”
Van der Ventel says that Christians need to cling to the belief in God, and that he created the universe perfectly. He warns Christians that if the faith in Genesis is lost, every other Christian fundamental is sure to crumble. After all, the theory of evolution is the reason why most Christians no longer believe in the creation account.
Van der Ventel is not alone on this matter. Many other scientists with strong faith have dedicated themselves to prove the validity of Genesis. A well-respected molecular geneticist, Georgia Purdom, gave his opinion on the documentary “The Genetics of Adam and Eve”. He has argued the validity of the creation account by tracing the genetics of every human back to Adam and Eve.
“One of the most compelling genetic evidences for an original human couple created by God is mitochondrial DNA research done by creation geneticist, Nathaniel Jeanson, He clearly shows that the common human female ancestor of us all (biblical Eve) lived within the biblical timeframe of several thousand years ago.”- Georgia Purdom
Like many Christians working in the many fields of science, Jim Stump does not believe in a literal interpretation of the creation account. He believes that Adam and Eve were a result of the evolutionary process.
When the changed their stance on the subject to: “the first man, Adam, was created by an immediate act of God”, Stump decided to step down from his teaching position..
“In considering this corporate commitment, I decided to resign from my position at Bethel in order to pursue alternative work, rather than remain under the new statement and bring tension to the Bethel community,” – Jim Stump
