BibleNew Testament1 Corinthians


19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours . . .

23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

This reference to "the wisdom of the world" is sometimes taken as Biblical justification for denigrating the mainstream science of the 19th to 21st centuries. See also 1 Corinthians 1:21. For scientific reasons to question it, see QMS:Questioning Mainstream Science.
