(WSJ) Eric Metaxas–Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God

Fred Hoyle, the astronomer who coined the term “big bang,” said that his atheism was “greatly shaken” at these developments. He later wrote that “a common-sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has monkeyed with the physics, as well as with chemistry and biology . . . . The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.”

Theoretical physicist Paul Davies has said that “the appearance of design is overwhelming” and Oxford professor Dr. John Lennox has said “the more we get to know about our universe, the more the hypothesis that there is a Creator . . . gains in credibility as the best explanation of why we are here.”

The greatest miracle of all time, without any close seconds, is the universe. It is the miracle of all miracles, one that ineluctably points with the combined brightness of every star to something””or Someone””beyond itself.

    This should be taught in schools along with Darwin’s ideas of random mutation and natural selection. Science which excludes a challenge is not science at all but a dogma.

    Subscription needed.

    #2, it’s a quick summary of the cosmology research he details in his book, “Miracles.” Basically, in the 1960s Carl Sagan thought that only a sun the size of ours and a planet the size of our at the right distance would be enough to support life, and posited that there must be many millions of such planets out there. Research since then demonstrates that there are at least 150 (and counting) conditions which must be precisely as they are here for life to exist; in short, that our existence is so statistically unlikely as to make it miraculous.
