KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public
schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in
this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For
Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is
flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.
"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but
because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said
Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and
physics from Oral Roberts University.
Burdett added: "Gravity—which is taught to our children as a law—is founded
on great gaps in understanding. The laws predict the mutual force between all
bodies of mass, but they cannot explain that force. Isaac Newton himself said,
'I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which
philosophers have searched all of nature in vain.' Of course, he is alluding to a higher
Founded in 1987, the ECFR is the world's leading institution of evangelical
physics, a branch of physics based on literal interpretation of the Bible.
According to the ECFR paper published simultaneously this week in the
International Journal Of Science and the adolescent magazine God's Word For Teens!,
there are many phenomena that cannot be explained by secular gravity alone,
including such mysteries as how angels fly, how Jesus ascended into Heaven, and
how Satan fell when cast out of Paradise.
The ECFR, in conjunction with the Christian Coalition and other Christian
conservative action groups, is calling for public-school curriculums to give
equal time to the Intelligent Falling theory. They insist they are not asking that
the theory of gravity be banned from schools, but only that students be
offered both sides of the issue "so they can make an informed decision."
"We just want the best possible education for Kansas' kids," Burdett said.
Proponents of Intelligent Falling assert that the different theories used by
secular physicists to explain gravity are not internally consistent. Even
critics of Intelligent Falling admit that Einstein's ideas about gravity are
mathematically irreconcilable with quantum mechanics. This fact, Intelligent
Falling proponents say, proves that gravity is a theory in crisis.
"Let's take a look at the evidence," said ECFR senior fellow Gregory
Lunsden."In Matthew 15:14, Jesus says, 'And if the blind lead the blind, both shall
fall into the ditch.' He says nothing about some gravity making them fall—just
that they will fall. Then, in Job 5:7, we read, 'But mankind is born to
trouble, as surely as sparks fly upwards.' If gravity is pulling everything down, why
do the sparks fly upwards with great surety? This clearly indicates that a
conscious intelligence governs all falling."
Critics of Intelligent Falling point out that gravity is a provable law based
on empirical observations of natural phenomena. Evangelical physicists,
however, insist that there is no conflict between Newton's mathematics and Holy
"Closed-minded gravitists cannot find a way to make Einstein's general
relativity match up with the subatomic quantum world," said Dr. Ellen Carson, a
leading Intelligent Falling expert known for her work with the Kansan Youth
Ministry. "They've been trying to do it for the better part of a century now, and
despite all their empirical observation and carefully compiled data, they still
don't know how."
"Traditional scientists admit that they cannot explain how gravitation is
supposed to work," Carson said. "What the gravity-agenda scientists need to
realize is that 'gravity waves' and 'gravitons' are just secular words for 'God can
do whatever He wants.'"
Some evangelical physicists propose that Intelligent Falling provides an
elegant solution to the central problem of modern physics.
"Anti-falling physicists have been theorizing for decades about the
'electromagnetic force,' the 'weak nuclear force,' the 'strong nuclear force,' and
so-called 'force of gravity,'" Burdett said. "And they tilt their findings toward
trying to unite them into one force. But readers of the Bible have already
known for millennia what this one, unified force is: His name is Jesus."
