Improbability doesn’t convince die-hard evolutionists to abandon their view. As a Christian, I prefer deductions (as in geometry proofs) to counter evolution.
You can spot the golden ratio in the swirl of a galaxy, the arch of an ocean wave, the tail of a seahorse, and innumerable other places in nature.
Even mathematicians—studying the rules that underlie reality—are tied up in knots over the surprising twists of “knot theory.”
Why is it so important for the Christian to behold the glory of God reflected in mathematics or anywhere else?
If there is “something there” in mathematics, the Christian cannot escape the consequences of the universal quantifiers which saturate Colossians 1:15–20.
There are two directions of mathematical inquiry: it can either penetrate into the other sciences, or it can mind its own business.
Christians believe the Mind partially revealed behind mathematics to be God’s.
If mathematics is already thought out and constructed by someone, it is logical that there would be no contradictions.
A single-celled organism slowly and gradually changes into something more complex—is this possible? According to evolutionists it is—given eons of time!
Physics, mathematics, and constants like pi are only possible because we live in a rational universe upheld by a constant, unchanging, and consistent God.
Surely there’s one thing Christians and atheists can agree on—math.
A new mathematical model “has offered even more evidence of the correctness of evolutionary theory.” So how does math “prove” evolution?
Does the Bible make a mistake in claiming that pi equals 3?
Did you know that amazing, beautiful shapes have been built into numbers? Believe it or not, numbers contain a “secret code”—a hidden beauty embedded in them.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
