    "God actually started science by encouraging human beings to name the animals at the beginning of Genesis, which is what we call taxonomy".

    You don't need to rebut that. You just need to underline it.

    Trav, there's the quote you were looking for.

  2. I have to agree with Lennox here. You can not find any science in the Bible before the naming of the animals (Gen 1:1-2:18).

    Taxonomy = classifying things
    Naming = Tigger, Kitty, Missy, Simba, Rex, Smokey...

  3. I don't remember asking for a quote on taxonomy! :-P.
