9 Design of the Laws of the Universe

10 Michael Denton Quote All the evidence available in the biological sciences supports the core proposition of traditional natural theology– that the cosmos is a specially designed whole with life and mankind as its fundamental goal and purpose, a whole in which all facets of reality, from the size of galaxies to the thermal capacity of water, have their meaning and explanation in this central fact. (Michael Denton, Natures Destiny, p. 389)

11 Paul Davies Quote There is for me powerful evidence that there is something going on behind it all....It seems as though somebody has fine- tuned nature's numbers to make the Universe....The impression of design is overwhelming. (Paul Davies)

12 George Greenstein Quote As we survey all the evidence, the thought insistently arises that some supernatural agency - or, rather, Agency - must be involved. Is it possible that suddenly, without intending to, we have stumbled upon scientific proof of the existence of a Supreme Being? Was it God who stepped in and so providentially crafted the cosmos for our benefit? (George Greenstein)

13 Fred Hoyle Quote A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with 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)

14 Robert Jastrow Quote 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)

15 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Galaxy Supernovae must occur during the early evolution of our galaxy… …but not now Supernovae must occur during the early evolution of our galaxy… …but not now

16 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Galaxy Location, location, location…

17 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Galaxy You are here

18 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System Life Zone

19 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System Larger Star: Rapid, unstable burning Larger Star: Rapid, unstable burning Smaller Star: Planets rotation period is too long Smaller Star: Planets rotation period is too long

20 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System The Earth is protected from comets by the large outer planets

21 The Earth is protected from comets by two large, gas planets: Saturn and... God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System

22 Jupiter: Our Great Protector God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System Comet Shoemaker-Levi

23 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Solar System Comets: Collisions required early in the history of the Solar System (provided needed materials) Collisions required early in the history of the Solar System (provided needed materials) Collisions must not occur at high frequency after establishment of higher life forms Collisions must not occur at high frequency after establishment of higher life forms

24 Violence in the Cosmos "Modern astronomers are learning more about the motions they observe and uncovering some astonishing examples of chaotic behavior in the heavens. Nonetheless, the long term stability of the solar system remains a perplexing, unsolved issue. (Ivars Peterson Newton's Clock: Chaos in the Solar System)

25 …the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

26 Formation of the Moon God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth

27 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Formation of the Moon Created through the collision of a Mars- sized planet with the Earth Created through the collision of a Mars- sized planet with the Earth The core of the Mars-sized object became part of the Earths core The core of the Mars-sized object became part of the Earths core Much of the Earths crust was ejected into orbit and coalesced to form the moon Much of the Earths crust was ejected into orbit and coalesced to form the moon

28 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Formation of the Moon Ejected Earths primordial atmosphere, preventing runaway greenhouse effect like that seen on Venus

29 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Formation of the Moon Established the Earths current axial tilt of 23.5º, which is ideal for maintaining optimal temperatures on the Earth

30 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Proximity of the Moon Slowed the Earths rotation rate from 8 hours to 24 hours Slowed the Earths rotation rate from 8 hours to 24 hours The original 8 hour rotational period would have led to winds of 500+ mph The original 8 hour rotational period would have led to winds of 500+ mph

31 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Established a unique continental crust, which allows for recycling of minerals through tectonic activity

32 God Proclaims His Love: Design of Our Earth Magnetic Field: if stronger: electromagnetic storms would be too severe if stronger: electromagnetic storms would be too severe if weaker: ozone shield and life on land would be inadequately protected from stellar and solar radiation if weaker: ozone shield and life on land would be inadequately protected from stellar and solar radiation

33 God Proclaims His Love: Design of the Earth Electrical Storms: Required for fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere Required for fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere If too high frequency there would be too many fires for lifes existence If too high frequency there would be too many fires for lifes existence

34 Reliability of the Genesis Creation Account 1.Creation of the universe, Solar System, and Earth (Genesis 1:1) 2.Appearance of the light of the Sun through the clouds (Genesis 1:3) 3.Establishment of a stable water cycle (Genesis 1:7) 4.Formation of continents (Genesis 1:9) 5.Creation of plants (Genesis 1:11)

35 Reliability of the Genesis Creation Account (cont.) 6.First appearance of the Sun, Moon, and stars through the clouds (Genesis 1:14) 7.Creation of birds and whales (Genesis 1:20) 8.Creation of cattle, rodents, and wild mammals (Genesis 1:24) 9.Creation of Man (Genesis 1:26)

36 God Proclaims His Love: Creation of Humans

37 What is the Purpose of Human Life? When asked what was the greatest commandment, Jesus said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 22:37-40)

38 Why Does God Want Us to Choose to Love Him and Our Neighbors? Parable of the banquet: Then the master told his servant, Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full. (Luke 14:23)

39 God is a God of order, not confusion Demonstrated through the physical laws of the universe Demonstrated through the physical laws of the universe God ties the reliability of the physical laws of the universe to the reliability of His promises (Jeremiah 31:35-36) God ties the reliability of the physical laws of the universe to the reliability of His promises (Jeremiah 31:35-36)

40 The Physical Laws of the Universe Tell of Gods Righteousness and Judgment And the heavens proclaim His righteousness, for God Himself is judge. Selah (Psalms 50:6) And the heavens proclaim His righteousness, for God Himself is judge. Selah (Psalms 50:6) The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory. (Psalms 97:6) The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory. (Psalms 97:6)

41 The Eternal Nature of Our Souls Is Revealed to Each Person He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men… (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

42 The Problem - SIN: Everyone has turned away, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. (Psalms 53:3) All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)

43 The Solution - Jesus Christ: God took on the form of a man (Jesus) to become the Messiah - the promised One who would take away the sin of mankind

44 How Do We Know Jesus Is the Messiah? Fulfilled Prophecy: Ancestry (6) Ancestry (6) Birth - date/place/circumstances (7) Birth - date/place/circumstances (7) Ministry (24) Ministry (24) Death by crucifixion (24) Death by crucifixion (24) Resurrection and present day ministry (6) Resurrection and present day ministry (6)

45 Why Must Jesus Christ Be the Creator of the Universe? a God who is transcendent to both time ( 2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:2, Jude 1:25) and space ( 1 Kings 8:27, Job 37:23) a God who is transcendent to both time ( 2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:2, Jude 1:25) and space ( 1 Kings 8:27, Job 37:23) the creation of the universe from extra dimensions ( Hebrews 11:3) the creation of the universe from extra dimensions ( Hebrews 11:3) The Bible is the only religious work to describe

46 How Do We Reestablish Our Relationship With a Holy God? Accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior Accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior Repent of your former life and follow Him as He leads you through the Holy Spirit Repent of your former life and follow Him as He leads you through the Holy Spirit
