"A sound explanation may exist for the explosive birth of our Universe; but if it does, science cannot find out what the explanation is. The scientist's pursuit of the past ends in the moment of creation. This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth... At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation. 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; he 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." -- Robert Jastrow1
One must wonder what causes so many brilliant minds to go to the incredible lengths they do to deny a Supreme Creator. It takes a far greater faith to believe that we evolved from a piece of slime billions of years ago than to believe in a Creator. The mathematical odds that through some unknown process the earth came to be at a conveniently precise distance from the sun, at a precise angle, at a precise speed of rotation, with the precise mixture of elements in the atmosphere, and allow conditions such that amino acids beget proteins beget DNA/RNA beget billions of cells beget living organisms, is ABSOLUTELY ZERO! Highly regarded astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle and world-famous mathematician Chandra Wickramasinghe calculated the probability of a SINGLE CELL coming into existence to be 10 to the 40,000 power!2 (the number of electrons in the entire universe is estimated to be 10 to the 52nd power!). Now consider that the the genetic information in a SINGLE CELL contains the equivalent of a library of about 4000 volumes3, and the human body has 30 TRILLION CELLS! Evidence for God is all around us, evidence for evolution is about as tenable as proof of the existence of Alice In Wonderland. Evolution simply remains "A Fairy Tale for Grownups".
"The more thoroughly I conduct scientific research, the more I believe that science excludes atheism." - Lord Kelvin
"You might say this [modern cosmological discoveries] would make [scientists] more inclined to accept religious views on the origin of the world. But their materialism is so deeply imbued in them - and I would count myself also as affected by this feeling - that the general response has been simply to avoid considering the implications." -- Robert Jastrow1
Postscript: God has not left us in the dark, and does not expect us to have a "blind" faith. Not only is his creation a testimony to his existence, but his Word through the Bible also provides overwhelming evidence that He is the one True God. I have documented some of this evidence in my Bible Evidences page, so if you get a chance, please check it out! "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom 1:20)."
