Nuclear Physicist Declares: ‘Science Will Never Contradict The Bible’

Science pdSTELLENBOSCH, South Africa An accomplished nuclear physicist has recently expressed outspoken support for the Genesis creation account, arguing that the evolutionary worldview “fails dismally” in its description of scientific realty.

Dr. Brandon van der Ventel is a nuclear physicist with a Ph.D. from South Africa’s Stellenbosch University, where he currently teaches theoretical nuclear physics. Van der Ventel’s specialties include biological systems, physics education, and computational physics.

In an interview with Christian News Network, van der Ventel explained why—as a physicist—he firmly believes the literal, historical interpretation of the Bible’s creation account. The theory of evolution, he explained, is scientifically unsubstantiated.

“The final arbiter of any theory must be based on the strength of its description of physical reality,” he said. “It is in this respect that the theory of evolution fails dismally.”

Not only is the second law of thermodynamics “a powerful argument against chemical evolution,” van der Ventel stated, but the very dating methods evolutionists cite are mostly supported by assumptions—not physics.

“Physics can also play a role when it comes to the sticky question of dating certain objects,” he noted. “It is important to understand that dinosaur bones, for example, are not found with a time stamp attached to them. Every publicized age is based on certain assumptions and conflicting radioactive dates are commonplace.”

On the contrary, the Bible’s creation account logically explains both physical reality and the nature of God, van der Ventel said.

“The creation account in Genesis establishes a number of great truths which form part of the Christian worldview,” he stated. “It points to God as the all-mighty Creator: a timeless, spaceless, immaterial and personal Being who is both the explanation and cause of the universe.”

The South African physicist further told Christian News Network that Genesis must be taken at face value, or else the rest of the Bible is compromised.

“At which chapter in Genesis do we start believing God’s revelation and the fact that all Scripture is God-breathed?” he asked. “It is important to understand that the denial of the Genesis account of creation is a direct result of the theory of evolution which posits a naturalistic explanation for the origin of life.”

“The denial of the Genesis account is not a matter to be taken lightly by Christians,” he continued. “If the biblical record is not true, then we are left with naturalism and atheism, of which the consequences are truly horrific.”

Van der Ventel asserted that “all scientific evidence has always and will always support the Bible.”

“Science will never contradict the Bible,” he said. “The reason is very simple: the Author of Scripture is also the Creator. That is what we as Christians should believe and promulgate at all times. It is a false dichotomy to think that the Bible and Science are in opposition. Even Christians fall into this mode of thinking due to the vicious and unrelenting propaganda.”


As a scientist, van der Ventel encourages young Christians to “enter the scientific field since university campuses are hotbeds for evolutionary propaganda.”

“By arming oneself with scientific material it is possible to engage non-believers in a systematic and technical manner,” he advised. “Christian parents should equip themselves and their children since television programs such as the History Channel, National Geographic or Discovery World shamelessly push their evolutionary agenda.”

“It is clear that if we are to demolish arguments (2 Corinthians 10:5), then equipping ourselves is paramount,” he concluded. “All believers should study Christian apologetics, since it will not only strengthen your own faith but also motivate you to boldly proclaim the Gospel in a secular society where the authority of Scripture and the uniqueness of Christ, are routinely denied.”

As previously reported, a respected molecular geneticist told Christian News Network last month that recent findings in the field of genetics confirm the Bible’s teachings that all humans descended from an original couple created by God.

    Ha! The Left is still not satisfied with this because it fails to force Christians into submission quite completely enough…

      Nonsense. If women (christian or not) want to take BC pills why does ANYONE have the right to say.. “You can’t”

      Why is anyone’s nose in a woman’s crotch

      • Nidalap

        No one is saying they can’t. They’re saying that they can’t force someone else to pay for it. They are perfectly allowed to purchase it themselves and will even still get to keep their job…

      • Princess Sheilyia

        Why should everyone else have to be financially responsible for for any woman’s choice concerning her crotch? Adults need to pay for their own crotch-like activities and upkeep. People need to grow up keep their noses out of other people’s pocket.

    While some are expecting the wicked to one day line up and receive the Mark of the Beast, they fail to discern the message in Revelation’s symbols. It is already happening and has been happening throughout history. Those who complied with the Roman Catholic State Church and other opressive State Churches in history received the mark and continued business as usual. Those who resisted and suffered under tyrany for Christ did not, even to the point of martyrdom. We again are seeing the same situation emerging with recent laws that are forcing Christians out of business for matters of conscience.

    “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:17, KJV 1900)

    “Here is wisdom: the one who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number, and his number is six hundred sixty-six.” (Revelation 13:18, LEB)

    The following verses show the “mark of the beast” is not literal, but symbolic.

    “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” (Revelation 7:3, KJV 1900)

    “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.” (Revelation 9:4, KJV 1900)

    “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” (Revelation 13:16, KJV 1900)

    “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” (Revelation 14:1, KJV 1900)

    “And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.” (Revelation 22:4, KJV 1900)

    The root problem with the ACA is the mandate. Using the contraception angle to fight the ACA is, most likely, a losing proposition. The law needs to be rescinded, completely. It was a bad law when it was passed and it’s still a bad law. The ACA was not passed to improve the health of the nation, but to move the nation further towards the failed system of socialism.

    • Eric Goberman

      and your alternative ? The republican plan. none whatsoever

      • FoJC_Forever

        I’m not a Republican or Democrat. The two party political system is just a power struggle between the super rich and powerful. Both sides just want control, but will collude with one another when it’s in their interests to do so.

    Tell me how does this give control over a woman’s decisions? She is not encumbered in anyway in her choice, just in who pays for it.

    Try reading,” Why evolution is true” by Jerry A. Coyne who lectured on evolution at Chicago university.
    If you think that Jesus was about the search for truth and reality and stood opposed to religious nonsense then you would need to assume that he would allow himself to be led into all truth as new evidence became available.
    There are many creation myths. Each religion took it’s own guess at how life on Earth came to be. However the basic themes of evolution – that all creatures are descended from one original ancestor organism, that it happened over millions of years, that it occurred due to changes in genetic information – are beyond reasonable doubt. People might wonder if it was really possible that natural selection could have been the sole driver / shaper. You might wonder if the process needed a helping hand from some supernatural realm. However it is clear that there was no instantaneous magical creation event within the time that it takes the Earth to revolve on its axis 7 times. Fossils ? Fossil fuels ?
    Come on. Even Genesis chapter 1 and Genesis chapter 2 accounts are at odds with each other.

    How we read the Holy Bible is a study and debate in itself. I cannot agree with literal interpretation alone. However, parts of it may be taken literally. Other parts are parables or have metaphor and analogies in it, to present deeper meaning and promote analysis. Presently, I have developed a view about Genesis. Moses who was raised in the Pharaoh’s household most likely was educated and well versed in the Polytheism of Egypt. Modern analysis include a Monotheism promoted before the time of young PharaohTut, by Pharaoh Akhenaten. I have art where Ra symbolized by the Solar Disc that have rays (arm like) ending in hands radiating outward from the disc, that hold the Ankh (Key of Life) which is similar and most likely represent the Breath of Life that God “breathed into the nostrils the Breath of Life”. Mystically, the Prana of India or Qi of China can be considered one and the same, but named in different languages. We in the West think of good health includes Fresh Air and Sunshine (15 minutes?) . So the Science says that we are made of Star Stuff or Star Dust. We claim in the bible that we are made of that dust of the Earth and that the dust shall return to dust. What is important is not the dust or it’s evolution, but the Breath of Life and that it shall return to God who gave it, as it is written. Without this Breath of Life man is not a living Soul, the dust is without consciousness. Take a deep breath and relax, or better yet take many breaths and relax (Pranayama or Qi Gong) Review Psalm 46:10 and Psalm 37:7. Raise your consciousness. Pray first to ask for Gods favor and Meditate which is being still and patient waiting for his visit, if that is his will.
