Comprehensive List of Factors of Fine-Tuning for Life in the Universe

Fine-tuning for life in the universe

The number of fine-tuning factors that scientists have discovered so far is growing. The more we discover nature, the more improbable nature appears to be. Here, I detail the fine-tuning factors for life in the universe as compiled by astronomer, Hugh Ross, in his monumental work, Why the Universe Is the Way It Is. This…

Is the Universe Too Big for God?

universe too big?

I used to think, as many do today, that the universe was way too big, wasteful in fact. I’ve since changed my view. However, many still hold the view that the ‘the universe is too big.’ What’s worse is that some even argue that since the universe is so big and wasteful, that, therefore, there…

Does Science Offer Proof That the Sun Formed Before the Earth?

Inevitably, when discussing the Bible, skeptics are bound to bring up an apparent discrepancy between what we know from science and what the Bible has to offer.

The objection…

Misconceptions of Intelligent Design

I recently came across a blog post written by an atheist that was a stumbling block for a Christian acquaintance (we’ll call her Jan). Whether it was this or other factors that led Jan to her rejection of Christianity, I was compelled to examine the article. At the surface, I didn’t see anything particularly compelling in…

Thank God for Earthquakes

The earthquake and the ensuing tsunami in Japan are truly tragic and need worldwide attention. In the wake of yet another catastrophe people all over the world either pray to God for the victims and survivors of the earth-shattering calamity or point to the catastrophe as yet another reason why there cannot be a God….

The Universe Brimming With Design and Fine-Tuning

For thousands of years, people have looked up at the night sky in awe and amazement. It was once thought that supernatural intervention was the driving force behind the mechanisms of the universe. While the many presumptions of the ancients have been demythologized by scientific inquiry as more of the natural reality is understood, that…
