by: Kenneth Boa & Robert Bowman

20-Compelling

· The whole history of humanity as such can be written as a search for a meaningful answer to the question of the existence of God. —Terry L. Miethe and Gary R. Habermas [Terry L. Miethe and Gary R. Habermas, Why Believe? God Exists! Rethinking the Case for God and Christianity (Joplin, Mo.: College Press, 1993), 9.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 97-100). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. — Robert Jastrow [Jastrow, God and the Astronomers, 115–16.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 574-578). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The odds against a universe like ours emerging out of something like the big bang are enormous…. I think clearly there are religious implications whenever you start to discuss the origins of the universe. —STEPHEN W. HAWKING [Stephen W. Hawking, quoted in Fred Hereen, Show Me God: What the Message from Space Is Telling Us about God; Wonders That Witness, vol. 1 (Wheeling, Ill.: Searchlight Publications, 1995), 186.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 772-775). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· A commonsense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question. —FRED HOYLE [Fred Hoyle, “The Universe: Past and Present Reflections,” Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics 20 (1982) 16.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 777-781). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· Physicists are running into stone walls of things that seem to reflect intelligence at work in natural law. —CHARLES TOWNES [Charles Townes, Making Waves (New York: American Institute of Physics, 1995), cited in Max Jammer, Einstein and Religion: Physics and Theology (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1999), 158.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 783-785). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The impression of design is overwhelming. —PAUL DAVIES [Paul Davies, The Cosmic Blueprint: New Discoveries in Nature’s Creative Ability to Order the Universe (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1988), 203.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 788-789). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The fine tuning of the universe provides prima facie evidence of deistic design. Take your choice: blind chance that requires multitudes of universes or design that requires only one. —ED HARRISON [Ed Harrison, Masks of the Universe (New York: Macmillan-Collier Books, 1985), 252.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 792-794). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· How is it that common elements such as carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen happened to have just the kind of atomic structure that they needed to make the molecules upon which life depends? It is almost as though the universe had been consciously designed. —RICHARD MORRIS [Richard Morris, The Fate of the Universe (New York: Playboy Press, 1982), 154–55, quoted in Hereen, Show Me God, 179–80.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 797-800). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The universe, it seems, is fine-tuned to let life and consciousness flower. —EDWARD KOLB [Quoted in Sharon Begley, “Science of the Sacred,” Newsweek, 28 Nov. 1994, 58, as cited in Hereen, Show Me God, 184.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 802-804). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The more I examine the universe and the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known we were coming. —FREEMAN DYSON [Freeman Dyson, Disturbing the Universe (New York: Harper & Row, 1979), 250, cited in Hereen, Show Me God, 198.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 806-809). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· It is becoming clear that however life began on earth, the usually conceived notion that life emerged from an oceanic soup of organic chemicals is a most implausible hypothesis. We may therefore with fairness call this scenario “the myth of the prebiotic soup.” —CHARLES B. THAXTON, WALTER L. BRADLEY, AND ROGER L. OLSEN [Charles B. Thaxton, Walter L. Bradley, and Roger L. Olsen, The Mystery of Life’s Origin: Reassessing Current Theories (New York: Philosophical Library, 1984), 66.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 875-880). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The very best Miller-Urey chemistry, as we have seen, does not take us very far along the path to a living organism. A mixture of simple chemicals, even one enriched with a few amino acids, no more resembles a bacterium than a small pile of real and nonsense words, each written on an individual scrap of paper, resembles the complete works of Shakespeare. —ROBERT SHAPIRO [Robert Shapiro, Origins: A Skeptic’s Guide to the Creation of Life on Earth (New York: Summit Books, 1986), 116.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 927-931). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The belief that life on earth arose spontaneously from non-living matter, is simply a matter of faith in strict reductionism and is based entirely on ideology. —HUBERT YOCKEY [Hubert Yockey, Information Theory and Molecular Biology (New York: Cambridge University Press, 1992), 284. Yockey considers himself an agnostic.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 945-947). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The current scenario of the origin of life is about as likely as the assemblage of a 747 by a tornado whirling through a junkyard. —FRED HOYLE, FAMED ASTRONOMER  [Fred Hoyle, The Intelligent Universe (London: Michael Joseph, 1983), in Walter L. Bradley and Charles B. Thaxton, “Information and the Origin of Life,” in The Creation Hypothesis, ed. Moreland, 190–91.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 949-952). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· I think it quite possible that life is so extremely improbable that nothing can “explain” why it originated. —KARL POPPER, PHILOSOPHER OF SCIENCE [Karl Popper, Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography, rev. ed. (London: Fontana/Collins, 1976), 168–69, cited in John Ankerberg and John Weldon, in The Creation Hypothesis, ed. Moreland, 287.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 955-957). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going. —FRANCIS CRICK (CODISCOVERER OF THE DOUBLE HELIX STRUCTURE OF DNA) [Francis Crick, Life Itself (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1981), 88.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 960-963). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· The scientific quest found fertile soil only when this faith in a personal, rational creator had truly permeated a whole culture, beginning with the centuries of the high middle ages. It was that faith which provided, in sufficient measure, confidence in the rationality of the universe, trust in progress, and appreciation of the quantitative method, all indispensable ingredients of the scientific quest. —STANLEY L. JAKI [Stanley L. Jaki, Science and Creation (New York: Academic Press, 1974), 278.] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 1728-1733). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]

· We see how God, like a human architect, approached the founding of the world according to order and rule and measured everything in such a manner. —JOHANNES KEPLER [J. H. Tiner, Johannes Kepler—Giant of Faith and Science (Milford, Mich.: Mott Media, 1977), quoted in Ann Lamont, “Johannes Kepler (1571–1630),” Creation 15:1 (Dec. 1992–Feb. 1993) 40–43, online at http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs/342.asp] [Ken Boa; Robert M. Bowman, 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists: Discover Why Believing in God Makes So Much Sense (Kindle Locations 1749-1752). David C Cook. Kindle Edition.]
