Uniformity of Nature
In order to do science we take for granted that the universe is understandable-it can be quantified in a way the mind can comprehend. We assume the universe is logical and orderly and that it obeys mathematical laws which are consistent over time and space. Even though conditions in different regions of space and eras of time are quite diverse, there is nonetheless an underlying uniformity. Because of such regularity in the universe, there are many instances where scientists are able to make successful predictions about the future. For example, astronomers can successfully compute the positions of the planets, moons, and asteroids far into the future. Without uniformity in nature, such predictions would be impossible and science could not exist.
The future resembles the past because GOD upholds the future as he has upheld the past. GOD's laws of nature are constant. Since none of us have experienced the future, the only way we could know the future, like the past, is by revelation from GOD. Everyone relies on this vital principle.
