“The most reasonable belief is that we came from nothing, by nothing, and for nothing.”

Stephen Hawking

  • The universe is complex

Michael Turner, astrophysicist

“The precision is as if one could throw a dart across the entire universe and hit a bull’s-eye one millimeter in diameter on the other side.”

  • The universe is complex

Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time

“It would be very difficult to explain why the universe would have begun in just this way except as the act of a God who intended to create beings like us.”

  • The universe is complex

Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomer

"If a tornado went through a junkyard, creating a functional 747... that would be child’s play by comparison!"

"The fact that life exists anywhere in the universe, can only be explained by the pre-existence of some gigantic intelligence which, if you wish, you may call God."

  • Man is a marvel

Romans 2:14–15

For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law… they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them....

  • Man is a marvel

Immanuel Kant

“Two things fill me with constantly increasing admiration and awe, the longer and more earnestly I reflect on them: the starry heavens without and the Moral Law within.”


In the beginning god11

  • There is love

George Marsden

“The ultimate reason that God creates, said [Jonathan] Edwards, is not to remedy some lack in God, but to extend that perfect internal communication of the triune God’s goodness and love.... God’s joy and happiness and delight in divine perfections is expressed externally by communicating that happiness and delight to created beings....


In the beginning god12

In the beginning...God

  • There is love

The universe is an explosion of God’s glory. Perfect goodness, beauty, and love radiate from God and draw creatures to ever increasingly share in the Godhead’s joy and delight.... The ultimate end of creation, then, is union in love between God and loving creatures.”
