We have recently looked at a couple of proofs for God’s existence. The Art design proof, then the Watchmaker’s proof.
Yes, Christians believe that God the Father created the universe, and everything in it. Out of nothing, if you will. He is eternal, forever, and His ways are above ours. We don’t know how He did it. But we have faith that He did it. Deuteronomy 29:29 says that there are mysterious ways about God that the mere mortal will NEVER figure out.
So, I want to add a little science to the proofs. This a chance to rekindle my love for medical school. (The hours weren’t fun, but the learning sure was.)
Yes, science points to an Intelligent Creator, and He points scientists to Himself.
Throughout history, there have been Christian men and women, people of high intellectual reasoning, who have set the world on its ear with their academic prowess in the science arena. Did you know the following people were Christians? To name a few: Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)- Discoverer of the Laws of Planetary Motion, Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)- Mathematical prodigy and universal Genius, Robert Boyle (1627-1691)- Founder of modern chemistry, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723)- discoverer of bacteria, Carolus Linnaeus (1707- 1778)- Classifier of all living things, John Dalton (1766- 1844)- founder of modern Atomic theory, Michael Faraday (1791-1867)- Giant of Electrical Research, James Joule (1818-1889)- Originator of Joule’s Law, Gregor Mendel (1822-1884)- pioneer in Genetics, Lord Kelvin (1824-1907) Physicist of Thermodynamics, James Maxwell (1831-1879) Father of Modern Physics, and Arthur Eddington (1882-1944)- The Astronomer who ruled Stellar Theory. (see Scientists of Faith by Dan Graves).
These believers don’t prove God’s existence, but it certainly is great to know that God has pointed a lot of ground breaking scientists to Himself as the Author and Creator of the Universe. Christian faith and science are not incompatible.
So I will blog on yet a third proof, but this one is more scientific. We will combat The Big Bang Theory with the First and Second Law of Thermodynamics, and I will keep this straight forward for you non-scientists out there. To be continued next blog……….
