The Scientist's Nightmare

Astrophysicist, Robert Jastrow of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies describes the dilemma faced by scientists responding to the accumulation of evidence for a Creator:

"For the scientist...the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries". [God and the Astronomers, p. 116]

Physicist Tony Rothman suggests the next step:

"The modern cosmologist ... sees the hand of God... in the constants of nature... When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe...it's very tempting to take the leap of faith from science to religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would admit it." [The Creator... p. 115]

Is there Someone Behind It All?

Scientific research has revolutionized our view of the universe and its origin. We know more about the origin of the universe than any previous generation. There was a beginning, a moment of creation when matter, energy, space and time began. There was a start, hence a Starter, an Initiator. Science tells us that the fundamental numbers are exactly right, fine-tuned, for the existence of life. It is more than blind chance or random luck. There is divine design in the basic values of the cosmos. Behind these numbers astronomers see the hand of God.

The whole universe seems guided by some unseen hand for our benefit. To accept this universe as merely the result of chance requires 'blind faith'. The probability of such a universe arising by random luck is even less than the chances of winning every every held! Can you believe in that? To admit the possibility of a Designer requires less faith; it requires a little humility. We ask you to give this matter your serious consideration.
