Calling him a scientist is rather demeaning actually. If he truly had a direct connection to God the Creator, then he would by that nature have an understanding that transcends even science. As he would know everything, or at least, access to the knowledge of everything.

Jesus had many names and titles. I rightly, added scientist to the list.
See the definition of scientist.

Seriously, fossils can't be denied; but i guess God can. I'm just not entirely
convinced of evolution of humans through present fossil comparisons!
"Intelligent Design" implies creation from someone. Be it from invisible
dieties, or a superior laboratory experimenter... My question is "WHO"? or
With all the UFO sightings, it's possible that 'we' were created by a more
advanced other-world-lifeform, who comes back periodically, to check on
us, & see how we're doing-

Excellent come-back, Lucid; I love it! Star!
No matter what, no matter what belief system, or flavor of science, you subscribe, you have to address the idea of Origin. The beginning of the beginning. The Alpha point. Chicken egg paradox. What came first?
But I believe in miracles
Good to hear, so do i.
It would make more sense to call an external force God, Divine, or a similar spiritual concept.
In light of all the UFO and abductions I would go so far as to say it's likely.
Me too, Scully!

You mentioned the scientific method of observation - unfortunately, empirical science, as it is called, is not now considered science and hasn't been for approximately 100 years. Unless you meant something else by "observation"...?

Jesus, as the Son of God, would by definition known all about these things. He would have been so far ahead of science, even the science of today, as to have His knowledge appear to us as 'magic'. So, yes, I would classify Him as a scientist, and the most accomplished one to ever live at that.
Classify him as a 'scientist' you guys are cracking me up
I think 'Anointed One' is more fitting. Why not just say enlightened? That's more accurate.

If his knowledge, as you said, transcends science, then so his classification also transcends the title 'sceintist'.
Well then, that would make him King, or Chief, or Head of all scientist.
Are you happy with that?
