In this seminar, Dr. Wile talks about Job 12:7-10, which begins by commanding the reader to “ask the beasts.” In his view, this scripture is telling us that we must study nature to fully understand God. While God’s divine revelation (the Bible) is clearly more detailed and precise than His natural revelation (creation), both are necessary to have a full and complete understanding of God. He gives a bit of history to show that seeking to understand God was the motivation for many of the great scientists of the past, and some great scientists of the present. He then draws from fields such as astronomy, microbiology, zoology, and botany to share at least a bit of what science tells us about God.
