Based on a literal interpretation of the Bible, some Christians hold views that are contradicted by mainstream science. This article discusses theoretical systems that are based upon Christianity or the Bible. However, the Bible also directly makes scientifically inaccurate claims.

Some Christian schools that use a scientific curriculum based on a literal interpretation of the Bible. For example, the ACE program is taught in over 6000 schools in 145 countries [1] but contains scientific information that is pure fiction.

In contrast, many Christians interpret the Bible metaphorically and find their religious beliefs to be largely compatible with the modern scientific understanding of the world.

Psychology

  • Homosexuality is a learned behaviour. "Because extensive tests have shown that there is no biological difference between homosexuals and others, these tests seem to prove that homosexuality is a learned behaviour." [6]

Physics

  • Electricity generation from snowflakes Job 38:22-23 Bible-icon.png. "Considering this scripture, some scientists believe that a tremendous power resides untapped within the water molecules from which snowflakes and hailstones are made." [7]
  • Solar fusion is a myth [6]
  • Anthropic principle

Just bizarre

  • Before the flood, the high level of hydrogen in the atmosphere would absorb blue right and emit red light, making the sky appear pink. This is a variant of the vapour canopy model. This would increase the production of norepinephrine in humans, which made people calmer in the pre-flood time. [7]
