people, friends and family members fall for Satan's evil ploys to destroy Christianity, not just in our countries but all over the world. Our God-given freedoms are at stake!

The Evidence of Cosmology: Beginning with a Bang
Allan Rex Sandage: "It was my science that drove me to conclusion that the world is much more complicated than can be explained by science...it was only through the supernatural that I can understand the mystery of existence."

Dean Kenyon: "...actually repudiated the conclusions of his own book, declaring that he had come to the point where he was critical of all naturalistic theories of origins."

Lee Strobel: "Due to the immense molecular complexity of the cell and the information-bearing properties of DNA, Kenyon now believed that the best evidence pointed toward a designer of life."

Allan R. Sandage: "Many scientists are now driven to faith by their very work."

Stephen C. Meyer: "Maybe the world looks designed because it really is designed ...to say that science is the only begetter of truth is self-contradicting, because that statement in itself cannot be tested by the scientific method. It is a self-defeating philosophical assumption. Science teaches us many true things, and some of those true things point toward God...scientific evidence actually supports theistic belief. In fact, across a wide range of sciences, evidence has come to light in the last fifty years which, taken together, provides a robust case for theism. Only theism can provide an intellectually satisfying causal explanation for all of this evidence."

Points to ponder as you read this article:
1. If it's true there's a beginning to the universe, as modern cosmologists agree, then this implies a cause that transcends the universe.
2. If the laws of physics are fine-tuned to permit life, as contemporary scientists are discovering, then perhaps there's a designer who fine-tuned them.
3. If there's information in the cell, as molecular biology shows, then this suggests intelligent design. To get life going in the first place would have required biological information; the implications point beyond the material realm to a prior intelligent cause.

Those are just three examples that can be given. It is just the beginning.

Stephen C. Meyer: "Science, done right, points toward God. 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...Taken together, the Big Bang and general relativity provide a scientific description of what Christians call creatio ex nihilo--creation out of nothing. When scientific evidence and biblical teaching are correctly interpreted, they can and do support each other. I'd say to anyone who doubts: investigate the evidence yourself."
