Beyond Our Universe

I stand here and proudly proclaim that I am a Creationist, and that belief was strengthened after listening to a leading astronomer Professor David Block’s talk called Beyond Our Universe – Accident or Design? Professor spoke about how finely tuned the universe is with easy to understand examples, designed rather than accident.

Another astronomer, the late Sir Fred Hoyle, once said about this finely tuned universe and our unique intelligent life form called Homo sapiens, “A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing 747, dismembered and in disarray. A whirlwind happens to blow through the yard. What is the chance that after its passage a fully assembled 747, ready to fly, will be found standing there? So small as to be negligible, even if a tornado were to blow through enough junkyards to fill the whole Universe. The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk-yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.”

Here is Vickers, from God First Church interviewing Professor David Block after the professor’s presentation at the El Grande Theatre at Monticasino this morning. Why are we here? Where did we come from? Where are we going?
