In all of life there are things we believe that can not be seen, but reason drives us to a conclusion.
An example Michael gives in episode 1 is that of dark matter. Dark matter and dark energy are two invisible presences making themselves known in the structure and movements of our galaxy.
In the same way, I see evidence for another invisible presence making himself known in our galaxy. I can not see nor measure God, but reason drives me to believe there is a God.
Many scientists have the belief that random change processes (evolution) led to the existence of our universe. If that belief is authentic then I should see evidence of it in our universe.
A universe that just happened by chance, should be governed by chance.
I don’t see that at all. I see a structured predictable universe governed by physical laws. Scientists will agree our universe is governed by laws of physics and literally threaded together by finely tuned structures of dark mater. (See Dr. Hugh Ross’ blog post).
A universe designed by a supernatural being would show evidence of design. I believe it does.
The behavior of planets in our universe is so precise that a rocket launched from our rapidly spinning earth can land on a predetermined area on another spinning planet such as mars. Because the universe is governed by precise laws, we can predict how our rocket will behave when we launch, even when our destination is 177 million miles away.
Is it more reasonable to believe that given long enough the universe just happened by chance or that the complex and beautifully designed universe had a designer?
The Bible states, “It is he who made the earth by his power,who established the world by his wisdom,and by his understanding stretched out the heavens.” (Jeremiah 10:12).
There is no science that can prove it, but reason drives me to it.
