Debating the Existence of God: The Multiverse Theory and Sola Fide

The multiverse theory is often looked upon as the starting point of the universe in place of its creation by God. It speculates that there exists a possibly infinite number of universes like ours with constants (see our post titled Anthropic Coincidences: Evidence of an Intelligent Creator?) similar to ours, yet slightly altered in each one….

Pantheism and the Argument from Design

Pantheism is a form of theism in which one does not believe that God is the omnipresent creator of the universe as he is depicted in the Bible. Rather, a pantheist regards God as everything there ever was, is, and will be; as identical with the universe. Nature is central in this form of theism, and…

Steve Jobs and God(s)

Recently, I’ve started to become rather convinced with Richard Dawkins’ scientific arguments against the existence of a god. However, I think I have discovered  a loop hole granted by a variation of the Argument by Design. One of Dawkins main critiques of the Argument by Design is that upon further inspection the biological world actually…

The Argument from Suboptimal Design and the Young vs. Old Earth Creationism Debate

The Argument from Suboptimal Design does not support the existence of the God that is portrayed in the Bible: an omniscient, eternal Creator. It claims that God couldn’t have designed the universe because there are many instances in which nature is flawed and “suboptimal” in accommodating humanity’s needs. The premises to the argument are summarized as follows:…

Anthropic Coincidences- Not Evidence of a Creator.

AEC recently posted about Robert Koons’ argument which claims that Anthropic Coincidences can logically be explained by Theism. Now I would read her post to gain a better understanding, but the plain definition was that “Anthropic Coincidences are coincidences in space that set the ratio of fundamental forces in the universe with great precision upon its…

Pope Francis on Creationism vs. the Big Bang and Evolution

While scientific reason and theism contrasted in many respects for much of history, today the Church is beginning to advocate for theories regarding evolution and biology as independent from God’s direct influence. In his Address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Pope Francis intertwines creationist and Darwinist ideologies, indicating that evolution and the Big Bang aren’t independent…

Anthropic Coincidences: Evidence of an Intelligent Creator?

Anthropic coincidences are coincidences in space that set the ratio of fundamental forces in the universe with great precision upon its creation to ensure that it is habitable; for example: If the universe’s weak nuclear force was significantly stronger, it would be star-free, as fusion at the big bang would have “proceeded directly to iron” (Koons). If it…

Hello readers, Although the blog is great place to post our research ideas, AC and I have also started an Instagram that explores the Argument of Design through our own photographs. Please check it out and follow our Instagram: theworksofnature! Best, AG

Richard Dawkins and the Selfish Gene

Hello Everyone, AG here, if you are new to the page I recommend you read the quick “About” section first to get a better grasp on what I’m doing here. Any who, here we go! To begin I am exploring what natural selection and evolution really mean, to get a better understanding of their relationship…
