The atheist has used science to justify the belief that the universe and we are nothing more than an accidental series of events ... blind forces ... we just happened. But science does not agree. All the laws of physics and chemistry demand a relationship between cause and effect. What caused these accidents?
A basic principle of science: every effect must have a cause. There must be an explanation at the root of any infinite series of effects.
Scientists can explain just about every effect in our existence, as far out as our astronomers can see. But they cannot explain the cause of the universe's existence ... because there is no natural cause for the universe to exist. The fact that it does exist begs the cause. The fact that the universe is so incredibly big and so well regulated begs for a very great cause.
Scientists before 1927 held largely to the notion that the universe was static and that it always existed. But Edwin Hubble proved that the universe is not static; instead it is expanding from its original point of creation. So if it has not always existed, then it still must have a cause. The universe cannot explain itself.
The Bible presents a cause and an effect. The Word of God caused the Big Bang. The God of the Bible told us that he has always existed ... He even stated that His name was "I am." The effect is recorded in Genesis: "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth."
Stephen Hawking is acclaimed to be the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein. He maintained that when scientists eventually trace back to the cause of the Big Bang we will likely be starring at the face of God.
He has lived eternally. He decided to create the universe. He is the cause.
