I happened upon THIS ARTICLE and found it fascinating…It’s by a fellow named Matt Barber and the title is:

The Big Bang Blows Atheism Sky High: Even Science May Eventually Catch Up to God’s Word

Here is a particularly inspiring passage from the article:  “Fred Hoyle is the atheist astronomer who coined the term “Big Bang.” He once confessed that his disbelief was “greatly shaken” by the undisputed science, writing that “a common-sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has monkeyed with the physics, as well as with chemistry and biology.”

Albert Einstein, who is often dishonestly characterized as having been an atheist, agreed that God-denial is foolishness. He once said of non-believers: “The fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who – in their grudge against traditional religion as the ‘opium of the masses’ – cannot hear the music of the spheres.”

“I’m not an atheist,” added Einstein. “The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”



The fool[a] says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

The Lord looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on the Lord.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    for God is present in the company of the righteous.
You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
    but the Lord is their refuge.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When the Lord restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

  1. The Laws of the Universe imply a Lawgiver.
    A belief in a Superior Being who makes the Laws of the Universe, implies Laws of Behavior, beginning with stewardship of which all seem to have a sense of.
    I read recently (AOW?) of Asimov rejecting God to avoid His rules.
    When man wants to do what he wants, he must deny the authority who insists otherwise.

    Sometimes I think people take on a belief that will justify their desired lifestyle. They also interpret scripture to accomplish this.

    I garee with everyone, especially Einstein. Who ever thinks they understand the whole picture is a fool.

    It has always been interesting to read about what science has to say about religion. Science is not a thing. Science is a process whereby we, by logic and experimentation, try to figure out how the world works. Scientific progress has not led us to understand the how or why of existence.

    I believe that the why question is beyond the ability of the scientific process to come to any conclusion. That’s where God comes in.

    @Bob…”I believe that the why question is beyond the ability of the scientific process to come to any conclusion. That’s where God comes in”
    Bob, and the very fact that we can wonder “WHY?” is God, too, don’t you think?!!

    Einstein….the fact that he did believe there was ‘something else’ is pretty wonderful and pretty convicting.

    Baysider, it is a blessing, isn’t it…glad you think so, too.

    Ed and Mal…thanks…good stuff!
