The world’s top scientists like Stephen Hawking, George Smoot, and Robert Jastrow are renowned in their respective fields for creating various scientific theories and even equipment that were designed to try to explain and find the origin of the universe and life on Earth.
Understandably, they are also agnostics – meaning they don’t exactly believe that there is a God but they are not absolutely against the idea that He could exist.
The universe had a one-time beginning
In their long years of studying the cosmos, scientists had created various theories to explain lots of things including the expansion rate of the universe, how life evolved on the planet, and came up with the Big Bang Theory that supposedly became the start of it all – yet no one could explain how come the big bang happened when there was nothing from space before it.
How can something as incredible and amazing as the universe of billions of galaxies and trillions of stars come from nothing? No matter how hard the world’s top scientists tried to get to the origin of all matter, even including time, in the universe, they could never find the answer!
But the Bible had long provided an answer to that:
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth.”
So, many of the world’s top scientists had to reluctantly change their minds (although not their published scientific theories) about the origin of the universe – and they had all come to an agreement that some super-intelligent Being is behind it all; though are still not ready to recognize that this Being is God.
But the evidence is overwhelming – because everything inside the universe exists only because conditions are ‘just right’.
For instance, according to Stephen Hawking, “If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand-million-million, the universe would have re-collapsed before it ever reached its present size.”
But what happens if the expansion rate was a mere fraction faster? Well, the planets, the stars, the galaxies, everything would have never formed. So, we wouldn’t be here!
The universe is just right for life
And life on Earth? Scientists like Charles Darwin say that we evolved from single-celled organisms billions of years ago yet many scientists now admit that even those organisms should have originated from something living – without the plans of some Supreme Being, the complex systems of life right now wouldn’t have existed.
DNA coding reveals intelligence
Even more recent evidence has shown that even the tiniest material in the body, the DNA, reveals coding so complex that even Bill Gates expressed wonder over how the most complex computer systems in the world couldn’t even begin to compare with the DNA!
