The Answers to 10 Science Questions every Christian should know

1. What percentage of the earth is covered by water?

71%, This is not Bible based, but mathematically based, therefore not a fact, but a theory.

2. What sorts of signals does the brain use to communicate sensations, thoughts and actions?

Prayer.

3. Did dinosaurs and humans ever exist at the same time?

Since dinosaurs, like domestic cats, are not mentioned in the Bible, no.

4. What is Darwin's theory of the origin of species?

Fiction.

5. Why does a year consist of 365 days, and a day of 24 hours?

The number of days is not mentioned in the Bible, and is therefore a creation of Man, and is therefore a theory. It takes 24 hours for the sun to orbit the Earth.

6. Why is the sky blue?

It's God's favorite color.

7. What causes a rainbow?

God. It's his promise to flood the Earth again. Unless there's Global Warming.

8. What is it that makes diseases caused by viruses and bacteria hard to treat?

They are the work of Satan, and only God can defeat Satan.

9. How old are the oldest fossils on earth?

6000 years.

10. Why do we put salt on sidewalks when it snows?

Man developed this theory that salt lowers the freezing point of water, melting ice. Since the exact mechanics are not mentioned in the Bible, it is not a fact.

Extra credit: What makes the seasons change?

God.

No wonder they want this stuff taught in schools. It's pretty easy!

With apologies to the original article.

Nothing like insulting people of faith. Why do you beleive that people of faith only believe what is found in the bible?

I have no problem with people of faith, Jon. I went to a Southern Baptist church with a minister who was excited everytime a new dinosaur was discovered, or some new idea about the age of the Universe. "It just proves how great God is!" he would exclaim.

Folks who tell me the Bible is 100% literal truth irritate me. And ID supporters tend to fall into that category.
