I like this chart because it shows that human interpretation is key to the alignment of the testimony of Scripture and the testimony of Nature. Both speak about the one and the same Creator and the one and the same Logos. If there is discrepancy in small details, that likely means we are facing Truth. Truth is not linear and exact. It is often quirky and paradoxical.
If there is contradiction between the testimony of Scripture and the testimony of Science in the overall pattern, however, we are certainly facing falsehood. It comes down to human interpretation, so we better get it right.

Misinterpretation of material in Genesis can lead to bad theology and ignoring pertinent Biblical data in developing scientific hypotheses can lead to bad science. Humility, diligence, and disciplined reading of the data are needed to see the overall pattern found in the testimony of both Scripture and Science.
