The Odds Favour a Designer

It is not merely the realization that the universe had a beginning which leads scientists to contemplate a Creator-God. They have discovered that the fundamental numbers are just right for the generation of life. Stephen Hawking is considered by many to be the most brilliant physicist since Albert Einstein.


Stephen Hawking (1942- )

Hawking points out that:

"The odds against a universe like ours emerging out of... the big bang are enormous. I think there are clearly religious implications..." [Stephen Hawking..., by K. Ferguson, p. 93.]

The Big Bang is fundamentally a giant explosion of cosmic proportions. Explosions are notoriously destructive. For an explosion to produce anything constructive, should surprise us. Allan Sandage, winner of the Crafoord prize in astronomy, says:

" I find it quite improbable that such order came out of chaos. There has to be some organizing principle. God to me is a mystery, but is the explanation for the miracle of existence, why there is something instead of nothing." [The Creator..., p. 116]
