This section contains possible explanations for statements that seem to contradict today’s science. While we don’t claim to have satisfactory answers in every instance, we’d also like to submit two considerations:
- Science caught up with Ellen White’s statements in a number of aspects, and there is no reason to expect this not to happen anymore. Even though science did become more refined during the past decades, there are still large areas which remain controversial at best.
- Especially in light of some hard-to-explain statements, we are not to forget that we have many reasons to accept the prophetic ministry of Ellen White. It would be foolish to disregard the vast amount of positive indicators for a handful of unclear statements.
