U of T Astronomer sees the Fingerprints of God

Dr. Hugh N. Ross graduated from UBC with a B.Sc. in Physics. Subsequently he earned M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Astronomy from the University of Toronto. Thereafter, Dr. Ross conducted post-doctoral research on quasars and galaxies at Cal. Tech. He is the author of The Fingerprint of God (1991), The Creator and the Cosmos (1993) and Creation and Time (1994).

Dr. Ross sees the imprint of the Creator's hand in the Universe:

"Wherever we look....we see evidence of God's design...[When] we examine the cosmos on its largest scale or its tiniest, His handiwork is evident...God's fingerprints are visible." [The Creator and the Cosmos, p. 146]

Dr. Ross is not alone in this view. Professor Jay Roth of the University of Connecticut, says:

"There is so much in the physical nature of the universe we inhabit, the exact balances of everything needed to support life, the piling of coincidence on coincidence, everyone of which is vitally necessary for the development of a stable star with a planet that can support life. These physical properties of the universe lead me to favor a Designer or Creator..." [Cosmos, Bios, Theos, p. 198]

Scientists from a diversity of fields agree:

MIT Physics professor

"The exquisite order displayed by our scientific understanding of the physical world calls for the divine." [Cosmos,... p. 52.]
?Vera Kistiakowsky

Zoology Professor
?University of Florida

 

"To me, the concept of God is a logical outcome of the study of the immense universe that lies around us...To me, God exists as the Supreme Being who started this creation that we call the universe, and he is responsible... for the development of life on earth....The evidence is all-too-pervasive for me to think otherwise." [Cosmos... p. 171]
          ?Dr. Thomas C. Emmel

Princeton Chemistry professor

"I believe in the existence of God. His existence is apparent to me in everything around me, especially in my work as a scientist." [Cosmos,..., p. 151] ?Steven L. Bernasek
