These days, however, even scientists are questioning the validity of the theory of evolution.

In his book, Beside Still Waters: Searching for Meaning in an Age of Doubt, Award-winning journalist Gregg Easterbrook, writes:

If the Big Bang had been slightly less violent, the expansion of the universe would have been less rapid, and would … have collapsed back on itself. If the explosion had been slightly more violent, the universe might have dispersed into a soup too thin to aggregate into stars. The odds against us were - this is just the right word - astronomical. The ratio of matter and energy to the volume of space at the Big Bang must have been within about one quadrillionth of 1 percent of ideal. Life is so improbable it must somehow be favored by something. By some First Cause, "to which," said Aquinas, "everyone gives the name of God."

In 1989, Professor H. S. Lipson, a distinguished member of the Institute of Physics, published an article in the professional journal “PHYSICS BULLETIN.” He studied the mathematical probability that Darwinian evolution has occurred. As with many scientists who are beginning to argue against evolution in favor of “Intelligent Design,” Lipson has concluded that many facets of nature simply could not have evolved. He says this:

"We must … admit that the only acceptable alternative [to evolution] is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it."

Those scientists who are willing to look at the evidence with open minds are coming to the conclusion that the evolutionary theory that life just happened to evolve as a result of a series of lucky coincidences requires far too much faith!

At the very least, something or someone “got the ball rolling”
