How to Read the News


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing God’s Word.


When we read science news, how can we separate fact from fiction? Well, we have to understand there are two kinds of science.

“Observational science” is science that’s directly testable, observable, and repeatable. It’s what builds technology.

“Historical science” deals with the past. It’s not directly testable, observable, or repeatable. It’s an interpretation of the past. It depends on the worldview you come to the evidence with.

So, when reading science news, look for the “observation” and learn to separate it from the “interpretation” of that evidence. Then look at the interpretation and ask, “does this match the eyewitness account of history from God’s Word?”
