In 1966 Time magazine ran a cover story asking: Is God Dead? Yet it turns out that the evidence for God’s existence is coming from science itself.
Here’s the story: The same year Time featured the now-famous headline, the astronomer Carl Sagan announced that there were two important criteria for a planet to support life:
The right kind of star, and a planet the right distance from that star. Given the roughly 1 octillion, 1 followed by 24 zeros—planets in the universe, there should have been about 1 septillion, 1 followed by 21 zeros—planets capable of supporting life.
This means basically that there should be aliens all over the universe.
With such spectacular odds, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, Aliens, began.
But as years passed, the silence from the rest of the universe was deafening. As of 2014, researchers have discovered precisely bubkis—0 followed by nothing.
What happened? As our knowledge of the universe increased, new factors continued to be discovered, and the number of possible planets that could support life kept on dropping until it hit zero, and kept going. In other words, the odds turned against any planet in the universe supporting life, including this one. Probability said that even we shouldn’t be here.
Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life—every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart. The odds against life in the universe are simply astonishing.
Yet here we are, not only existing, but talking about existing. What can account for it?
There’s more. The fine-tuning necessary for life to exist on a planet is nothing compared with the fine-tuning required for the universe to exist at all.
Scientists have discovered that not only did all the ingredients for making the universe had to not only exist before the universe formed, but had to all come together within one millionth of a second after the BiG Bang.
All this happened by chance or does this prove the existence of God?
It’s like making a car, before you get started all the parts have to be present or you will have no car.
Alter any one value and the universe could not exist.
Multiply that single parameter by all the other necessary conditions, and the odds against the universe existing are so heart-stoppingly astronomical that the notion that it all “just happened” defies common sense. It would be like tossing a coin and having it come up heads 10 quintillion times in a row.
Really? One followed by 30 zeros.
Fred Hoyle, the astronomer who coined the term “big bang,” said that his atheism was “greatly shaken” at these developments.
The greatest miracle of all time is the universe. It is the miracle of all miracles, one that proves beyond a doubt that God exists.
The best argument for atheists is that we don’t know how the universe came about but it has always existed.
According to science the universe has only existed for around 15 billion years.
Imagine that God allowed scientists to actually retrace to the very beginning of the Universe.
Imagine, that according to atheists all creation happened by accident in the first millionth of a second, and we are not even talking about the miracle of how life started.
According to Isaac Newton’s first law of thermodynamics, Nothing can be Created or Destroyed.
Well I’ve got news for Isaac Newton.
Atheists believe that everything came from nothing, or is it easier to believe that God created everything?
A question in my year 10 science book asks what happened at 15 billion years minus one second, before the Big Bang.
I was very intrigued and rushed to check the answers at the back of the book which said, that science currently has no idea.
In a YouTube video, Reuben Street asks,” I just need a sign to prove that God exists,” and then he opens the Koran and it says. ‘For those of you who ask for signs, haven’t we shown you enough already. Look around you, look at the stars, the sun, water. These are the signs for people of knowledge’.
