Can we fit science and the Bible together?

Scientific Laws and the Bible

The law of the conservation of energy states that the total amount of energy in the universe is constant. Energy can be transferred from one place to another, or transformed from one form to another, but it can neither be created nor destroyed. The reason why no energy can now be created is because only God can create energy and because God has “rested from all His work which God created and made” (Gen 2: 3). The reason why energy cannot now be destroyed is because He is now “upholding all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3).

The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of any isolated system always increases. In short, the universe is becoming less and less orderly. Scripture tells us something about the present state of the universe, how its condition is deteriorating over time, and how it shall “wax old like a garment” (Psa 102: 26). The fact that the universe, in its present state is deteriorating, has been fully verified by modern science. Erosion constantly wears down the features of the earth. Our bodies wear out; we die and decay to a pile of dust.
