The God Theorem

January 23, 2015 | Under Atheist Pseudo-Science, Science | Posted by | 1 Comment

Can a mathematical theorem point to the existence of God? Consider whether our universe had a beginning, as claimed by the Bible. Until about a hundred years ago, there was no scientific evidence it did. Then, in the 1920s, Edwin Hubble discovered the universe is expanding in a way that implies a beginning, or “Big…

Fine-Tuning Video

January 16, 2015 | Under Recommendations, Science | Posted by | No Comments

This week I thought I’d share with you a great (and short!) video on the fine-tuning of the universe. Please click here: I think you will enjoy it. The video shows how many important constants of physics (the video doesn’t say how many, but perhaps 31) are just about perfect for life, and that a…

Cosmology for God

January 2, 2015 | Under Science | Posted by | No Comments

Biologists risk career death if they publicly disagree with Darwin’s theory of unguided evolution; notwithstanding the recent scientific evidence (ENCODE, orphan genes, the fossil record, etc.) against that theory. Fortunately, in cosmology and astronomy, scientists are freer to challenge atheist beliefs. The findings in these areas are getting more attention. Cosmology is the study of…

The Star of Bethlehem

December 25, 2014 | Under Journey of Faith, Science | Posted by | No Comments

Was the Star of Bethlehem myth or fact? I am greatly indebted to Wayne Taylor of Louisiana for pointing me to Rick Larson’s excellent video on this subject. It is yet another example of modern science supporting belief in God. Computers today can reproduce how the sky looked from any point on Earth at any…

An Inconvenient Truth

December 19, 2014 | Under Journey of Faith, Science | Posted by | No Comments

You may remember a 2006 documentary with Al Gore talking about global warming. It was titled “An Inconvenient Truth.” The film described global warming as “an inconvenient truth,” because, although the scientific evidence was overwhelming, many people were in denial. Could the existence of God be an inconvenient truth for our society? The scientific evidence…

Our Special Earth

December 14, 2014 | Under Science | Posted by | 1 Comment

The many very special qualities of Earth suggest it was designed for life. My book describes these qualities (Chapter 13), and argues they support belief in God. Here are two new items that support this hypothesis. A paper by two astrophysicists looks at how often and where gamma ray bursts take place. Gamma ray bursts…

Layers of Information

December 5, 2014 | Under Science | Posted by | No Comments

I’ve noted previously the September 2012 announcement by ENCODE – a worldwide collaboration of 450 top scientists – that most and likely all of our 3.2 billion letters of DNA code serves a purpose. That made the front page of newspapers worldwide. This week I want to focus on their lesser known but equally stunning…

Let’s Be Thankful

November 29, 2014 | Under Journey of Faith, Science | Posted by | No Comments

In this week of Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks to God. We don’t normally put our lives in historical perspective, but the average person in the United States today has a quality of life superior to that of even royalty as recently as 100 years ago. We have better food and nutrition, better entertainment, better medical…
