The phrase "oppositions of science falsely so called" is found in the King James translation of 1 Timothy 6:20-21. The meaning of science falsely so called, in 1611, was so-called knowledge, as most modern translations reflect.

The phrase is frequently used to denigrate modern science — for example, by the Institute for Creation Research here. On the other hand this argument is not recommended by Creation Ministries International (CMI): see Qms:Arguments even professional creationists don't use#24.

It can also be used as an indicator of fundamentalist bias in modern translations.
