Science is in general agreement about the existence of a Big Bang, from which the universe is said to have literally exploded into life. The problem science faces with this theory is the difficulty that such a Big Bang would face in being successful in creating life.
In his book, The Life of the Cosmos, physicist Lee Smolin details the many variables which had to be exactly balanced in order for the universe to unfold into living order, rather than random chaos.
The mass of the proton, the strength of gravity, the range of the weak nuclear force, and dozens of other variables determine how a universe will unfold after a Big Bang. If any of these values had been just slightly different, the universe would have become a disorganized pool of hot plasma where galaxies and solar systems were unable to form.
In order to make a universe that supports life, the numbers have to be exactly right.
What are the mathematical chances of an accidental Big Bang producing a universe that produces life as we know it?
One chance in 10229
That’s one chance in 10 to the power 229.
To spell it out, that’s exactly one chance in…
Basically, not much chance at all!
What are the chances of an intelligent Creator getting the mix just right so that the universe can support life?
Well, we’re here aren’t we?
