Scriptures: Psalm 19:1-4
If you want to know that God exists: Look up! The Bible claims that the most powerful proof of God will be found by looking at the heavens. Scientists have come to believe that the universe was compressed to an extraordinary degree: smaller than an atom. During the first few nanoseconds, that the universe became an unbelievably hot. In that cosmic instant, something within the tiny universe flashed, causing a gigantic explosion. It burned with a fiery heat beyond human imagination. It hurled rapidly expanding matter every direction. The universe exploded with such force, the echo can still be heard bouncing around in space! Scientists claim that within the brief moment following the big bang. All the fundamental particles necessary for life were formed – simply amazing. . . Scientists have calculated that it happened in 1043 of a second!
Look at Psalm 19:4. The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.
If You Want to Know That God Exists – Just think! The Lord, created the heavens and stretched them out, says Isaiah 42:5. The Big Bang violates the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which says that left to itself everything moves from order to disorder. Ask yourself the question: have you ever left your house a mess and found it organized and clean when you returned?. Has your car ever replaced it's own gas in the tank and rotate the tires on its own – NO!
Here’s the problem: How in the world did such a violent explosion get so organized? The odds against a universe like ours emerging out of something like the big bang are enormous. Roger Penrose, a major player in the development of Black Hole Theory, estimates the odds for our universe emerging from a big bang are one in 10 billion to the 30th power! Why would anyone be willing to bet their eternal state against those odds? Many of the world’s most brilliant thinkers readily admit the necessity of God marvelous craftsmanship.
Astrophysicist Sir Fred Hoyle, who is credited with the discovery of the resonances of carbon and oxygen atoms, explained this process, he said; “A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with the physics, as well as
with the chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking
about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so
overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.” Think
about this: The more you understand the facts, the greater the need for a
Psalm 14:1 says: "The fool has said in his heart, there is no God." Albert Einstein claimed that cosmos are so complex that it reveals a being of super intelligence! A being who is smarter than the combined intelligence of every human who have ever lived! Robert Jastrow,
a leading astronomer, wrote this in his book God and the Astronomers, “Consider
the enormity of the problem. Science has proven that the universe exploded into
being at a certain moment. It asks, what cause produced this effect? Who or what
put the matter and energy into the Universe? Science can’t answer these
questions. . . For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of
reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of
ignorance; his is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over
the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting
there for centuries.”
No wonder Heinemann Prize Winner in mathematical physics, Robert Griffiths, said, “If we need an atheist for a debate, we go to the philosophy department. The physics department isn’t much use.”
If You Want To Know That God Exists –just look around! Psalm 104:5 "He established the earth upon its foundations, so that it will not totter forever and ever." In 1959 scientists discovered the fact that the earth is perfectly balanced, whereever there is mountain mass
on one side of the earth, something of equal weight is on the opposite side of the earth! That’s why the earth doesn’t wobble out of orbit! Figure that the density of rocks varies tremendously world-wide. This is an utterly amazing balancing act! There is global weight distribution of land mass, mountains, valleys, and water! The oceans actually exert the precise pressure against the shores that keep the mountains standing. The Bible claimed this all along in Isaiah 40:12, it claims that God measured the waters and the dust of the
earth and the mountains and hills so they would be balanced. Psalm 104:8-9 says: "Mountains rose and valleys sank to the levels you decreed. Then you set a firm boundary for the seas, so they would never again cover the earth."
Many in the scientific community are talking about “Fine Tuning” of the cosmos. Scientists have identified 75 different finely tuned aspects of our world everyone of which is absolutely essential for life if any one of them were “out of tune” we would die, here are twelve of the 75: "If the sun were any further from the center of the galaxy, rock planets could not form. If it were any closer, stellar density would interfere with our orbit, if the earth was one degree loser to the sun, we’d fry! If we were one degree further, we’d freeze! If the moon was any closer or larger, the tides would destroy the coast lines. If any smaller or further away, the oceans would die from a lack of nutrient movement."
"If our distance from Jupiter were any greater, asteroids and comets would pepper the earth. If we were any closer our orbit would become unstable. If the surface gravity was any stronger, earth would retain too much ammonia and methane. If it were any weaker, earth’s atmosphere would lose too much water. If the magnetic field were any stronger, electromagnetic storms would destroy us. If any weaker, ozone shield could not protect us from stellar and solar radiation. If the earth’s crust were any thicker, it would absorb too much of our oxygen. If it was any thinner; the volcanic and tectonic activity would make life impossible."
"If the decay rate of a proton was any faster, we would die from radiation. If it was any slower, insufficient matter in the in universe for life. If the carbon dioxide level was any greater, runaway greenhouse effect would kill us. If it were any less, plants would be unable to maintain photosynthesis. If the polarity of the water molecule were any greater vaporization would be to great for life. If it were any smaller, ice would not float it would build up ice and freeze the planet! Even the tilt of the earth’s axis is crucial to maintaining the earth’s temperature."
The probability of these 75 factors occurring anywhere in the universe, much less even these 12, is a hundred thousand trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion. If that’s not enough – One hundred billion other things had to happen for these 75 to exist!"
I believe without a doubt that there is a God and just as He formed the universe He also formed each one us. He designed everything to work in perfect order and desires for each one of us to have a real and intimate relationship with Him.
