"Not only does the universe unexpectedly correspond to mathematical theories, it is self-organizing — from biology to astrophysics — in unlikely ways. "

The physical constants of the universe seem finely tuned for the emergence of complexity and life.
Slightly modify the strength of gravity, or the chemistry of carbon, or the ratio of the mass of protons and electrons, and biological systems become impossible. The universe-ending Big Crunch comes too soon, or carbon isn’t produced, or suns explode. --The search for the God particle goes beyond mere physics - The Washington Post

Your Say

"For this is what the LORD says--he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited--he says: 'I am the LORD, and there is no other.'"

Isaiah 45:18

Please explore the Reasons.org web site. They also have 3 podcasts to enjoy. "Science News Flash" is a discussion of recent science announcements. "Straight Thinking" is a philosopher's discussion. "I Didn't Know That" is a Q&A show.

Hugh Ross (PhD CalTech) makes the case for the myriad ways rigorous science supports the Bible. The organization, Reasons To Believe, is best described as an Old-Earth Creationist ministry. It's some of the most detailed science you will ever hear.

Do yourself a favor and give their site and podcasts a try.

Mr. Gerson writes this sentence: "The wild improbability of a universe that allows us to be aware of it seems to demand some explanation." Which I would rewrite: "The wild improbability of a universe that is self aware through the agency of sentient life seems self explanatory."

The Whole thing is an Apotheosis.
