Title: The heavens declare the glory of God the skies proclaim the work of his hands' Psalm 19:1


1
The heavens declare the glory of God the skies
proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 191
2
Science without religion is lame, Religion
without science is blind.
Albert Einstein

As a matter of fact, however, it may be stated
categorically that no archaelogical discovery has
ever controverted a Biblical reference
Nelson Gleuck,
archaeologistThere can be no doubt that
archaeology has confirmed the substantial
historicity of Old Testament tradition.

William F. Albright

Think about it
If we were to find a watch lying on a beach, we
would probably not assume that it just evolved
out of the sand. We would rightly conclude that
it had been made by an intelligent designer and
somehow transported to that particular spot.
We would never infer in the case of a
mechanism such as a watch that its design was due
to natural processes such as the wind and the
rain rather the existence of a watch points to
the probability of a watchmaker. Living things
are similar to mechanisms such as watches, but we
are much more complex. Our existence gives rise
to the probability that we were created by an
intelligence (God).

The more I study nature, the more I am amazed at
the Creator Louis
Pasteur

In his hand is the life of every creature and
the breath of all mankind
Job 1210
Birds are amazing. The size,shape, and sounds
they make are awesome. The fastest wingbeat by a
bird is thee Amethyst Woodstar hummingbird. (80
beats per second)The breathtaking plumage of the
hummingbird comes from the fact that the
refraction of light produced by structures of
certain feathers!! The color is not just
dependent upon regular old pigmentation. The
Artic Tern has the longest migration path of any
creature. It is over 22,000 miles per year. They
live in the South Pole and breed in the North
Pole.At the end of the summer, Monarch
butterflies from Canada and Central America may
travel 1,750 miles to a few selected forests in
Mexico. Millions of them hang on trees until
Spring when they travel back to their homes.
The female atlas moths pheromone can attract
a male from 4 miles away.

Under the sea
Humans can hold breath 2 minutes Penguins 15
minutes Sperm whales 90 minutesThe blue
whale is the largest animal on Earth. Weight -
169 tons ( a mere 30 elephants combined )Length
110 feet ( 37 yards on a football field
)Humpback whales are known for their songs and
sounds they make to communicate with one another.
They often last 20 minutes. Humans cant go
below 400 feet of water due to pressure. However
the sperm whale can go up to 2700 feet!!!The
giant squid has the largest eyes of all animals.
16 inches across and more than 1000 million light
sensitive cells.
8
The strongest creature is the rhinoceros beetle.
It can withstand 800 times its own weight on
its back. It can grow to 7 inches long.
Bees may travel 55,000 miles and visit 2 million
flowers to gather their nectar for 1 measily
pound of honey. There are over 300 different
types of honey due to many different kinds of
flowers that bees collect the nectar from!!The
wings on a bee beat at 11,400 beats per
minute!!!!!!!!!!! In along with creating that
yummy honey, they perform something else much
more important for us to live. Pollinating the
plants! They are responsible for 80 of the plant
pollination on Earth!The hexagonal shape of the
beehives combs is ingenius. It can hold up to 25
times its own weight. How did the bees figure
that one out????
9
Scientists estimate there are over 1026 stars in
the Universe.
Each one according to scientists, is unique and
different from all others (just like
snowflakes)The Milky Way galaxy (our galaxy) is
made of 200 billion stars, spread across 150,000
light years, and is 1,000 light years
thick!!!There are millions of other galaxies
besides the Milky Way!Our star (the sun) emits
light that takes 8 minutes to get here. 3
grains of sand in a cathedral will be more
closely packed with sand than space is with
stars!!!!!
10
The more that astronomers learn about the origin
and development of the universe, the more
evidence they accumulate for the God of the
Bible.
Hugh Ross Ph.D.
These scientists were deeply devout
ChristiansFrancis Bacon (1561-1626) saw Gods
works in nature and his words in the Bible as the
twin facets of his self-disclosureIsaac Newton
(1642-1727)has been called the greatest
scientist of all timeRobert Boyle (1627-91)
The father of modern chemistry and famous for
Boyles LawMichael Faraday (1701-1867)Pioneer
in electromagnetism. Most of the basic
discoveries of electricity are dueto him.
Arguably the greatest experimental scientist of
all time.Gregor Mendel (1822-1884)Pioneered
early work in genetics and was the Abbot of a
monastery
11
John Kepler (1571-1630)
He disproved the idea of circular movements
occurring amongst the planets and Earth. He
observed the 8 degrees of divergence from the
circular orbit of Mars. All other astronomers
believed that the planets and stars had circular
orbits. Kepler had such respect for the world
that God had made, what he observed, that he did
not deny his observations. He published them and
many regarded him as a heretic then after. He
is quoted religiously bound to alter not one
jot or tittle of what it had pleased God to write
down in natureGalililei Galileo
(1564-1642)Demonstrated that the Earth is not
the center of the Universe. Yes this is was seen
as heresy by the Roman Catholic hierarchy of his
day and he was tried and condemned to house
arrest by the Roman Inquisition
12
Galileo and Copernicus remained devout Christian
men, convinced their work glorified God, despite
the constant obscurantism of the Catholic Church
of the day.
Isaac Newton wrote his Principia in the assurance
that this world could originate from nothing but
the perfectly free will of God He is said to
have spent more time in Bible study than in
scientific research.James Simpson (1811-70)
was the 1st surgeon to use chloroform as an
anaesthetic was asked what his greatest discovery
was. He said It was not chloroform. My
greatest discovery has been to know that I am a
sinner and that I could be saved by the grace of
God.
13
Many scientists who do not call themselves
Christian now readily admit that there are many
coincidences in our cosmos which indicate that
it has been designed
14
Nuclear Coupling
If weakerThe strong nuclear force coupling
constant holds together the particles in the
nucleus of an atom. If the strong nuclear force
were slightly weaker, multiproton nuclei would
not hold together. This would result in Hydrogen
being the only element in the Universe.If
strongerIf this force were slightly stronger,
not only would hydrogen be rare in the universe,
but the supply of the various life-essential
elements heavier than iron (elements resulting
from the fission of very heavy elements) would be
insufficient. Either way, life would be
impossible.
15
Electromagnetic Coupling
The electromagnetic coupling constant binds
electrons to protons in atoms. The
characteristics of the orbits of electrons about
atoms determines to what degree atoms will bond
together to form molecules. If the
electromagnetic coupling constant were slightly
smaller, no electrons would be held in orbits
about nuclei. If it were slightly larger, an atom
could not share an electron orbit with other
atoms. Either way, molecules, and hence life,
would be impossible. Electrons and protonsThe
ratio of electron to proton mass also determines
the characteristics of the orbits of electrons
about nuclei. A proton is 1836 times more massive
than an electron. If the electron to proton mass
ratio were slightly larger or slightly smaller,
again, molecules would not form and life would be
impossible.
16
These constants, and many similar constants,
demonstrate why a growing number of physicists
and astronomers have become convinced that the
universe was not only divinely brought into
existence but also divinely designed.
17
Either way, one must admit we are a miracle. The
miracle of chance or the miracle of design.
It is highly improbable that most characteristics
of our world could have come about by random
change. The probability of life arriving on our
planet by chance and random changes is so small
as to be impossible. The other option is to
believe we are made by a Creator(God).
18

Clifford Longley in The London Times
The precise values of the speed of light,
Plancks Constant, the mass of protons compared
with neutrons, the total quantity of hydrogen and
helium all apparently unconnected conditions
which have controlled every detail of the
universes development seem to have been
exactly programmed all to one end humanity If
in the course of an experiment a scientist
produced a result against odds this large, he
certainly would not dismiss it as an accident. He
would look for a cause.
19
Paul Davies, professor of mathematical physics
and professor of natural
philosophy at Adelaide Univ.

Turned from Atheism in 1984 to Christianity after
being convinced by his studies the laws of
physics seem themselves to be the product of
exceedingly ingenious design is for me powerful
evidence that there is something going on behind
it all. The impression of design is
overwhelming.
20
The Sun Earth Moon must be designed. Here is
why.
The color of the sunIf redder, photosynthetic
response is insufficient. If bluer,
photosynthetic response is insufficient.
Photosynthesis releases oxygen for us to
breathe. Our distance from the sun If farther,
the planet would be too cool for stable water
cycles If closer, the planet would be too warm
for a stable water cycle Tilt of the Earth (23.5
degrees) Temperature differences for seasons too
extreme for plant/animal survival
21
Orbital Eccentricity is too great.
The temperature differences are too extreme for
plant / animal survivalThe Earth does not rotate
around the Sun in a perfect circle. Its the
perfect path for our seasons as well. If it were
changed, many plants and animals would die.
Thickness of the Earths crustIf thicker, too
much oxygen would be transferred from the
atmosphere to the earths crust. There would not
be enough oxygen left to permit the development
of life.If thinner, volcanic and tectonic
activity would be too much. There would be so
much ash in the atmosphere, tidal waves and
earthquakes that life would not develop.
22
Albedo (ratio of reflected light to total falling
on surface)
If greater, a runaway ice age would exist thus
preventing life. If less, a runaway greenhouse
effect would exist thus preventing
life.Gravitational Interaction with the moonIf
greater, tidal effects on the oceans, atmosphere,
and rotational period would be catastrophic
tidal waves, thus preventing life.If less,
orbital obliquity (incline/slope) would cause
climatic instabilities and thus the seasons of
the year would not exist Water Vapor level in
the atmosphereIf greater, a runaway greenhouse
effect would developIf lesser, rainfall would be
too meager to support life on the landAny
change in water vapor levels effects the Ozone
layer.
23
71 of the Earth is covered in water.
Earth is the only planet in which water can exist
as a liquid on the surface. The heat capacity
of the oceans is very important in keeping the
Earths temperature stable.Water is responsible
for most of the erosion and weathering of the
continents, a process unique in the solar system
today.
24
Jupiter is so large that its gravity pulls
meteors into it which otherwise would crash right
into earth! Its like a magnet.
When I consider your heavens, the works of your
fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have
set in place, what is man that you are
mindfulof him?
Psalm 8 3-4
25
To believe in God does require faith, but it is
not unreasonable. To believe that our universe
happened all by chance is to take a huge leap of
faith.
If the we decide that the first life to occur was
a self-replicationg cell, the probability of the
spontaneous production of just the 200 enzymes
necessary for such a cell has been calculated as
1 in 1040000.The chance that higher life
forms might have emerged in this way is
comparable to the chance that a tornado sweeping
through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747
from the materials therein.
Sir Fred Hoyle, British
astronomer
Founder of Institute of Theoretical
AstronomyA Boeing 747 has 4.5 million parts
arranged in an intricate design to fly.A typical
cell contains several billion molecules
(proteins, DNA,RNA) arranged in design perfectly
to sustain the cell for life.
26
Life is in the blood.
The circulation of blood was not discovered until
1616 by William Harvey. 1000s of years before
this in Leviticus, it was written For the life
of a creature is in the blood Chapter 17 Verse
11. We did not appreciate the accuracy of this
verse until recently. We know know that cells of
the body depend upon blood to supply food, water,
and oxygen for our survival. Life truly is in the
blood.
27
I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I
know that full well. Psalm 13914
The human brain has 12 billion brain cells and
its 1015 connections. According to Isaac Asimov
it is the most complex and orderly arrangement
of matter in the universe The human brain has
greater reasoning powers than any computer. The
electrical activity in our brains goes on 24
hours a day and uses enough electricity to power
a 10 watt lightbulb. Our bodies have more than
12,000 million nerve cells. They are linked to
each other by more than 10 million million
connections. And dont forget the amazing
eyes!!!In the absence of any other proof,
the thumb alone would convince me of Gods
existence. Isaac Newton
