Question

 

We often discuss science as if the principles dictate nature and that nature "behaves" according to those principles.  According to Genesis 1, God created the heavens and the earth.  So, everything we are studying in this course is not some principle or law established by God, but it is a principle or a law that mankind has established to model nature and how we believe that God's creation behaves.

If you visit the Institute of Physics website and look at their definition of physics you will find the following:

The dictionary definition of physics is "the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them", but what that really means is that physics is about asking fundamental questions and trying to answer them by observing and experimenting.

Physicists ask really big questions like:


How did the universe begin?

How will the universe change in the future?

How does the Sun keep on shining?

What are the basic building blocks of matter?

If you think these questions are fascinating, then you'll like physics.

 

The problem with some of these questions is that they are historical in nature.  For example, how did the universe begin?  There is no way to go back and observe the creation of the universe.  Attempts to go back and "observe" nature lead mostly to intellectual faith and are no more founded than having faith in the revealed, inerrant word that God inspired according to Timothy 3:16 "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness."

Now read the Getting Started: How Physics is Done section of your text and considering what was discussed above along with your text describe the scientific method and discuss its validity in determining the theory of how the Universe was formed.  The initial post should be at least 250 words in length.
