When one takes the time to study any particular field of science, one inevitably comes to the conclusion that nothing is simple. It doesn’t matter what branch of science you investigate, be it the natural sciences, (includes cosmological, geological, chemical, and biological factors of the universe), formal sciences (the study of mathematics and logic) or the social sciences (the study of human behaviour and societies). Archaeology falls under the social sciences category and it, like all other sciences, is no exception.
Unless one takes the time to investigate the different fields of science, people have a tendency to grab onto generalized statements that they have heard about the Bible over the years and apply that generalized statement to a particular field of science without giving it much further thought. An example being “The Bible has been discredited by modern archaeology.”
It is important to note that the assumptions the scientist brings to the data he/she discovers will influence the way the data is interpreted. The difference often lies not in the facts, but in the interpretation of the facts. Consequently you may have heard the expression “Science doesn’t SAY anything, scientists, do.”
This post contains numerous links that will highlight recent discoveries within Archaeology that continue to confirm the historical accuracy of the Bible and provide a framework from which one may broaden our understanding of this fascinating field of science. Many of these links contain links within themselves, so please take the time to discover all of the information that is being presented.
Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!
