At one time, I believed that science conflicted with my belief in God. I didn’t have faith in God, because I thought that belief in God meant ignoring science… and I was not willing to do that. However, I realized that I didn’t have to shun science to believe in God. I also realized that if you are looking for the truth, God becomes evident everywhere in science.
Albert Einstein believed in God, and so do 70% of modern scientists. Among the most influential scientist of today, 40% of them believe in a “Personal God” like the one of the Bible. Stephen Hawking says that it is personal choice, but God cannot be ruled out as the cause for Creation.
Many conditions have to be perfect for life as we know it to exist on Earth: Earth is the perfect distance from the Sun; other solar systems that we have investigated so far have gas giants closest to their stars; others have planets that circle their stars with deadly elongated cycles. Earth seems to exist in a place of perfect conditions in our Universe, but Earth seems so small on the grand scale of things.
The Scale Of Our Planet Among The Universe
The Milky Way galaxy is home to about 300 billion stars. Our Sun is just one of them! Of the 300 billion stars in our galaxy, it is estimated that at least 6 billion of those stars could have Earth-like planets in their solar systems. We started looking for them a long time ago.
We haven’t found planets that are similar to Earth yet, but we are just getting started. We are lucky enough to live in a time when we can calculate the date of the universe as we know it. Since all of the galaxies are moving away from each other (at a rate in which we can observe), we can assume that about 15 billion years ago everything was a singularity. 15 billion years is a very long time… hard for most to imagine.
One of the most intelligent minds of our time, Stephen Hawking, does not rule God out. He believes that he has proven that the Universe was created by a process that is governed by the law of science. He says that whether or not you believe that it takes a creator to decree how the laws work in the first place, they are not interfered with once they are set in place.
How God Communicates To Us
The Holy Spirit can speak to your spirit, if you seek the truth with an open heart. Science does not have the cure for what ails us. Don’t believe me? Read the New Testament with an open mind, and tell me if God doesn’t tell you something directly.
When you seek the truth about life with an open mind and an open heart, God will show you the answers. Don’t let your friends views or your family’s views about God determine your own. God wants each an every one of us to willingly chose Him – despite the opposition.
