No Stephen Hawking, God Did Create the Universe, by Eric Hovind

Imagine insurmountable rows of slot machines and the only way to win is to hit the jackpot 250 times in a row. The odds are against you. Yet, these are the same odds that would have to be overcome for the simplest life-form to evolve and form each of 250 proteins by random chance. It’s seemingly impossible. (From the documentary “Expelled” [2008])

Though the premise above is irrational and illogical, the entire “theory” of evolution depends on the same “logic.” Evolutionists call Biblically based creation “religion” and dismiss the text in Genesis as “folk tales.” Yet they and other intellectuals, including physicist Stephen Hawking, base their “science” on their belief that creation sprang from nothing in a “big bang”! Who’s making up stories now? (See Romans 1:20-22)

The latest intellectual brainstorm

Hawking’s latest book, The Grand Design, states plainly: God did not create the universe. It has been called in reviews as “a frontal attack on Christianity.” But the very title of his tome infers that creation was and is designed; therefore, it must have a designer. Even the reportedly smartest man of our age cannot contain the contradictions, which blow “black holes” in his science.

Hawking writes, “The question is: is the way the universe began chosen by God for reasons we can’t understand, or was it determined by a law of science? I believe the second.” Hawking adds, “Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing.” So, Professor Hawking, who is the Lawgiver in your scheme? Nothingness cannot begat everything. That is illogical and unproven.

Grounds for divorce?

An interesting biographical note about Stephen Hawking is revealed by his first wife, Jane. Even though she married Hawking in 1965, after his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or known in America as Lou Gehrig’s disease), she bravely cared for him until their divorce in 1991. In the book by Tim Adams, A Brief History of a First Wife, it states, “[Jane] took much of her dramatic hope at the time from her faith, and still sees something of the irony in the fact that her Christianity gave her the strength to support her husband, the most profound atheist. ‘Stephen, I hope, had belief in me that I could make everything possible for him, but he did not share my religious – or spiritual – faith.’”

Science and religion can be partners

As Dr. Kent Hovind has proven in his Creation Seminars, scientific data proves that heaven and earth were created in the timeframe stated in the Bible, in the way that is explained therein. Hovind, a science teacher for 15 years, has rationalized his academic lessons with those of the Bible. The results are evident throughout the Creation Seminar series.

More complex than science can prove

Today, we are learning more and more about what it takes for life to form. Beyond the statistical improbabilities of evolution, we’ve learned that the single cell is not at all like a mud hut, but rather more complex than a galaxy. In fact, for a single wing of a dinosaur to evolve, all five systems in a cell would have to change identically at the same time. Something that Darwin could never have imagined. (From the documentary “Expelled”)

The Bible repeatedly refers to God’s creation throughout the Old and New Testaments (Example: See Acts 17:24-28). Just as a parent silences the child’s constant question of “Why?” because a child’s mind would not understand the answer, God also tells us truths without explanation (Romans 1:19-20). Even the sharpest minds of our species cannot grasp the divine intelligence that is God.
