Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Fools Call It Magic!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hand. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Psalm 19:1-5

Instead of thinking that life can be explained via materialism, the people that fools derisively call bronze-age goat herders have explained, 4,000 years ago that studying nature and considering how matter came into existence can actually lead us to discover the Creator of matter and energy.

And really, anyone who has given "origins" serious thought without allowing a secular bias to override their ability to follow the evidence will come to the same and obvious conclusion.

. Our mathematically precise universe has been created in such a manner that it becomes clear we were meant to discover the origins of our universe.

. We have been placed in the best place in the universe for just such discoveries, making it obvious that we were meant to discover the origins of our universe.

. Human existence has come at the absolute best time in the history of the universe for making these discoveries, just as though we were meant to discover the origins of our universe.

And that is why Paul says in Romans Chapter 1 that NO ONE is without excuse in knowing that God exists:

“Since what may be known about God is plain to them because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities - His eternal power (omnipotent, omniscience, omnipresent) and divine nature (Immaterial, Eternal, Spiritual, Personal) - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made.”

As the song we sing in Church says,
“God of wonders beyond our Galaxy
You are Holy, Holy
The universe declares your majesty
You are Holy, Holy”


  1. we evolved in this Universe, therefore we are fined tuned for it.

  2. I don't know which side of the issue that you're on son, but you're about as far from understanding "Fine Tuning" as a person can get.

  3. I believe he is trying to say, that life as we know it exists because *only* life as we know it can exist in the universe as we know it, and that if the universe were fine tuned just "slightly" differently, a different form of life would exist. Basically saying "if we didn't do it, someone else would."

    I disagree with that however.

    You can not create order from chaos or the otherway around. Something can be ordered from an already ordered system. Example; a garbage dump is chaotic but it can be cleaned by a person (who is ordered) but often creates chaos somewhere else. It may be more spread out over a greater area.

    In kind, life, which is ordered, required order to be created. A universe "slightly" more chaotic would not create life as we know it and probably wouldn't create any life because it is too chaotic.

    The ordered universe seems to be evidence of a pre-existing ordered system.
