There is a completely different arena where these high multiple exponential numbers turn out in favor of a designed universe. Again, the odds of probability are so overwhelming as to eliminate unguided forces as the most likely cause. (If one will look at the evidence.)...
It never ceases to amaze me how stacked the numbers of probability are in favor of a sovereignly designed universe vs. a non-guided naturalistic one. The comparison of this probability is not even close. In fact it is quite embarrassing, because the numbers are staggering against the atheistic/agnostic camp....
For today’s post, I would like to explore with you some fascinating ideas from Stephen C. Meyers. Doctor Meyers has distilled down to common terms, the vast challenges that the naturalist faces when attempting to explain the diversity of life present on our planet. This video link includes graphics that display what is taking place in the synthesis of proteins being created inside of cells....
It is an important question, particularly for those who do not believe that God exists. Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds on the planet, has espoused that gravity has the power and creative ability to be the cause of the origin of the universe. It is surprising that this could possibly be the best answer that he could find....
We have spent significant time in this blog to develop how complex living structures are. The necessary functions of proteins found within living cells are numerous and so complex that design is the only viable explanation for their existence. Today I would like to look at an additional problem for the naturalist worldview, it is the sequence of priority of timing involved in the creation of these amazing structures that are an absolute requirement for life to be present....
In my adventures of relating to many atheists, I have come to the conclusion that there is a common thread of thought processes that these folks hold. While many claim to open-minded, the reality is that there is a structure to their thought patterns that is locked into a four step process that will not allow any deviation....
In a court of law, the standard of proof is establishment of evidence in order to conclude that something has occurred “beyond a reasonable doubt.” The standard does not go as far as to say “beyond any possible doubt.” I would contend that this same standard should be held when a person comes to investigate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus....
Recently I have been looking at the idea that people at a very young age develop a keen sense of understanding that there is an inference to design in practically everything we see around us. By the age of about 5, kids understand that the toys they play with are designed and made by someone. They don’t just magically appear in their toy box....
The posture held is that any grand over-arching truth claim is nothing more than an attempt to grab power in order to control or manipulate the masses. There may be a hint of truth in this perception, however, the blanket claim that all meta narrative truth claims are bad is taking things way too far....
