god the universe
Is There A God? (What is the chance that our world is the result of chance?)
Modern cosmology and astrophysics point to God as the source of the universe so strongly that, as astrophysicist Hugh Ross puts it, “Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join ‘The First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.’”
Why is there something rather than nothing?
The Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe (which enjoys near universal acceptance among astrophysicists) poses a grave threat to atheism. Astrophysicist Christopher Isham puts it best:
“Perhaps the best argument in favor of the thesis that the Big Bang supports theism is the obvious unease with which it is greeted by some atheist physicists. At times this has led to scientific ideas, such as continuous creation or an oscillating universe, being advanced with a tenacity which so exceeds their intrinsic worth that one can only suspect the operation of psychological forces lying very much deeper than the usual desire of a theorist to support his or her theory.”
