Postmillennialism supports the argument for the Christian basis for science since postmillennialism was an important influence in the Scientific Revolution.

The influence of the postmillennial eschatology of the Puritan Revolution in England (1626-1660) on the Scientific Revolution requires some discussion of related issues of biblical hermeneutics and belief in a literal Adam and Eve. Continue reading

Point 4:
Postmillennialism is the biblical anecdote to failed predictions of Christ’s Second Coming.

4. Postmillennialism is the biblical anecdote to failed predictions of Christ’s Second Coming.
5. Postmillennialism was an important influence in the Scientific Revolution. Continue reading
