Conflict of Atomism and Creation-Science in History
Year: 2011 Pages: 21
The underlying worldview assumptions of creation-science are centered in reality, causality and unity?logical assumptions that became embedded in classical science and the Scientific Method. Creation-science has been opposed by atomism ever since Epicurus asserted that random events occur in matter. This randomized theory of matter developed by early atomists to support their pantheistic worldview persists in modern science where atomistic assumptions are implemented into current theories of matter, forces and cosmology. Recently, some creationists have returned to the logical basis of science and developed physical models of elementary particles and atoms to form an improved basic theory of matter. Numerous examples show how creationtist worldview assumptions lead to superior explanations of the structure of matter and the nature of forces on objects.
