Great Scientists I Louis Pasteur and Germ Theory

One example of past rejected scientific theories is that of the miasma theory — the idea that the Black Death was caused by poisonous air.

Louis Pasteur used experimentation and the scientific method to demonstrate the plausibility of a new theory — the germ theory.

By suggesting that doctors start surgery with clean hands, post-surgery infections became less prevalent, and the medical field was influenced forever.

However, Pasteur’s new theory did not come with immediate acceptance, and he urged other scientists going against the status quo not to give in to academic pressure:

You young men — doctors and scientists of the future — do not let yourselves be tainted by apparent skepticism; nor discouraged by the sadness of certain hours that creep over nations. Do not become angry at your opponents, for no scientific theory has ever been accepted without opposition.

While the evolutionary model of the Big Bang is indeed popular among atheistic scientists, there are an increasing number of tough questions — and one very authoritative answer: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”

As Pasteur is said to have stated, “The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.” (The Literary Digest – 18 October 1902)
