Science and Christianity are Compatible

As a former agnostic for over 40 years, I am familiar with the arguments used to support anti-Christianity. However, having been metaphorically "hit in the head by God" (Romans 1:22), I now understand that these arguments and attacks don't hold water in the face of the evidence of the truth of God's Word.
Fallible humans sometimes err on the side of science (Spontaneous Generation, only 1,200 stars in the heavens, a flat earth, using leaches for medical cures, etc. — all once considered "science"). But to say that science and Christianity are incompatible is to sell science short. Where science and Christianity differ, science has or will come around. God is the ultimate scientist and mathematician, and medical and scientific men and women of great intellect and intelligence have attested to the accuracy of the Bible. These include Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon (primarily responsible for the establishment of the "scientific method"), William Hershel (the astronomer), Samuel Morse (inventor of the telegraph), Louis Pasteur, John Ambrose Fleming (considered by many as the father of modern electronics) and the list goes on.
Agnostics have sneered at the "hundreds of historical mistakes" in the Bible — only to be silenced by the science of archeology. The Bible told us before science that the Earth was round (Isaiah 40:22), the Earth was suspended in space (Job 26:7), the stars are innumerable (Genesis 15:5), there are mountains and canyons in the sea (2 Samuel 22:16 and Jonah 2:6), there are ocean currents (Psalms 8:8), and it even declares the first and second laws of Thermodynamics (Genesis 2:1-3 and Psalms 102:25-26). The Bible is not a fairytale. It is a handbook for living and contains the ticket to eternal life (Romans 10:9).
