God and Empirical Science*

Science** was created by man to better understand the work of God and not as an attempt to prove that he doesn’t exist. It doesn’t prove that there’s no god, it simply help us better understand his work.

The popular belief is that science and religion are opposite while in-fact they’re interconnected. It’s in our nature to seek to understand and come up to conclusion based on facts***.
A better understanding of life doesn’t prove that there’s no God.

Have you ever wondered why Ice float? It’s a solid that’s heavier than water and yet it floats. The observation has shown that the molecules, in a block of ice, are set up in a way that it floats (I’m no scientist, for more details:

One could say “here are the facts” and can now close the subject.

What would happen if one of those molecules was different and ice would sink? There would be little to no life in our water because the ice would crush everything every Winter.
A simple difference in a molecule could have made a difference on how it acts. Some say “that’s just how it is” while other believe that it was carefully planed by God.

There’s many categories of science. Empirical Science, like the above example, isn’t a category that claims, or try to prove, that there’s no god. They just do observations that anyone can reproduce in the same conditions.

Many, who says that they rather believe in science rather than religion, didn’t put any time into researching anything about science and just say so because someone else said something about it.
When it comes to Faith, it’s important to know why you believe what you believe and do research to come up with your own conclusions. All sides needs to be considered.

Coming soon... God and Historical Science - The Science that “proved” there’s no God.

Empirical Science*: Must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being tested for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions (Source:

Science**: Systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation. (Source:

Facts***: Knowledge or information based on real occurrences. (Source:
