“When you analyze all of the most current affirmative evidence from cosmology, physics, astronomy, biology, and so forth–well, I think you’ll discover that the positive case for an intelligent designer becomes absolutely compelling.” – Johnathan Wells, Ph.D., Ph.D., who received a doctorate in molecular and cell biology from Berkeley, and a doctorate in religious studies from Yale.
“While there will always be points of tension or unresolved conflict, the major developments in science in the past five decades have been running strongly in a theistic direction… You can invoke neither time nor space nor matter nor energy nor the laws of nature to explain the origin of the universe. General relativity points to the need for a cause that transcends those domains. And theism affirms the existence of such an entity–namely, God.” – Stephen C. Meyer, Ph.D., who received his doctorate from Cambridge, focusing on the history of molecular biology, the history of physics, and evolutionary theory.
After years of searching, in an attempt to look at the objective, scientific evidence in an attempt to disprove God, Viggo Olsen, M.S., M.D., Litt.D, D.H., F.A.C.S., F.I.C.S., and D.T.M.&H., (I kid you not, that is the proper way to address that single man) claimed, “The evidence was no longer obstructed. All we [him and his wife] had learned came together into a wonderful, magnificent, fabulous picture of Jesus… I know it’s true. I do believe.”
The Bible contains nothing contrary to scientific thought. It is also coherent and logical. This is why the discipline of Christian theology is so prevalent among the church, as the coherence of Scripture not only has face value but much depth to it as well. Read into actual scientific data, and look deep into it. Materialism is the dominant philosophy in our culture, and it holds more weight than the actual science supporting it should allow for.
Having read “The God Delusion,” I can safely say that it is some of the poorest scientific literature I have ever seen. Agreeing with me is Alister McGrath, with a Ph.D. in molecular biophysics from Oxford, with a who is an associate of Richard Dawkins. McGrath and Dawkins both are professors at Oxford. McGrath’s book, “The Dawkins Delusion?” opens with an introduction praising Dawkins for his scientific achievements, “Since the publication of The Selfish Gene (1976), Richard Dawkins has established himself as one of the most successful and skillfull scientific popularizers. Along with his American colleague Stephen Jay Gould, he has managed to make evolutionary biology accessible and interesting to a new generation of readers. I and other admirers of his popular scientific works have long envied their clarity, their beautiful use of helpful analogies, and their entertaining style.
Yet his latest book marks a significant departure… When I read The God Delusion I was both saddened and troubled. How, I wondered, could such a gifted popularizer of the natural sciences, who once had such a passionate concern for the objective analysis of evidence, turn into such an aggressive antireligious propagandist with an apparent disregard for evidence that was not favorable to his case? Religion to Dawkins is like a red flag to a bull–evoking not merely an aggressive response but one that throws normal scholarly conventions about scrupulous accuracy and fairness to the winds.”
If you haven’t ever heard anything like this, I recommend going and picking up that book, “The Dawkins Delusion?” It’s a great read, and it will certainly open your mind and remove those huge shutters that are in front of your eyes, known as a materialist philosophy and culture, rather than truth.
Edit: If you want my direct sources, I used “The Case For a Creator” By Lee Strobel and “The Dawkins Delusion?” By Alister McGrath (and his wife who I’m spacing on her name)
