Greatest Story
Perfect World Design- DNA Intelligence- Quantum Physics
There have been many other equally startling discoveries in recent years which I detail in the book, Whisperings of My Soul, to highlight just three:
·       How finely tuned many parameters in the laws of nature are and need to be in order to support life on earth. Which points absolutely to a creative design:
·       How DNA coding reveals extraordinary intelligence. Beyond anything that could possibly be arrived by pure chance  
·       Recent discoveries in Quantum Physics  which has overturned everything scientists believed they understood about the sub atomic world
I detail/ provide examples of all three of these in the following:
Perfect World Design
At the turn of the century scientists appear closer to validating the existence of a Creative Intelligence behind the origin of the universe than to disproving the existence of God.
As progress continues, the unfolding mysteries of the universe leave scientists with more questions than answers. Cosmologists, who study the universe's origin, claim the intricacies of the world are baffling. They can't understand how a random cosmic explosion could bring about life unless it was engineered to do so.
For life to begin, gravity and the other forces of nature needed to be just right. We now know if the expansion rate in the universe been slightly
Weaker, the “big bang’’ would have ended in a “big crunch”. Gravity would have pulled all matter back to its original point.
The late physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking wrote:
“If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by
even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have re-collapsed before it ever reached its present size.” If the expansion rate was slightly larger, the planets and solar systems would not exist.
More and more frequently we hear words like “design’’ “super-intellect,”
and “creator” in the lexicon of the scientific world. And more and more scientists admit that with every stride in progress we make, there is more evidence pointing towards intelligent design. In fact, the more that we learn about the complexity of the universe, the more scientists are astonished by the odds of human existence at all.
The Wall Street Journal's 2014 article “Science Increasingly Makes the
Case for God,” has become the most popular online article in the paper's
History.
Author Eric Metaxas explained that back in the 1960s, experts believed that an infinite number of planets were capable of supporting life. Scientists estimated there was one septillion planets - 1 followed by 24 zeros - in the universe capable of having life forms.
The requirements for life were the right kind of star, and a planet the
right distance from that star according to the experts. Stephen Hawking; A Brief History of Time; 1996
By the 1990s, it became clear that there were far more factors necessary for life. The right kind of star and a planet the right distance from that star,
was not going to be enough. If Earth was smaller, its gravity wouldn't be enough to hold a thin layer of oxygen extending 50 miles above the earth's surface. If it was larger, the atmosphere would be like Jupiter, full of hydrogen. The Earth is also the perfect distance from the sun. Any closer and we'd burn up, and any colder and the earth would be a ball of ice.
It also spins on its axis as it hurtles around the sun at a speed of 67,000mph ensuring all the surface of the earth to warm and cool every 24-hours.
“The odds turned against any planet in the universe supporting life,
Including this one,’’ reported Metaxas in the Wall Street Journal.
Defying the Laws of Probability
Metaxas reported that there are now more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life. All of them must be met perfectly, or the whole thing falls apart. He gives an example of one of the parameters for life on earth:
"Without a massive planet like Jupiter nearby, whose gravity will draw
away asteroids, a thousand times as many would hit Earth’s surface.”
It seems the odds of any life in the universe after a random explosion are so minuscule that the fact we exist at all is simply astonishing. A cosmic explosion is as unlikely to bring about life any more than a nuclear bomb would, unless it was engineered to do so. Yet the conditions in our solar system and planet are perfectly attuned to creating life on earth.
R.E.D. Clark; Creation; 1946 for life to begin, gravity and the other forces of nature needed to be just right. We now know if the expansion rate in the universe been slightly weaker, the “big bang’’ would have ended in a “big crunch”. Gravity would have pulled all matter back to its original point.
The late physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking wrote:

“The odds turned against any planet in the universe supporting life,
including this one,’’ reported Metaxas in the Wall Street Journal.???
Metaxas posed the questions: “Can every one of those many parameters
have been perfect by accident? At what point is it fair to admit that science
suggests that we cannot be the result of random forces?”
He reports the scientific odds against the universe existing are so
astronomical that the notion that it all “just happened” defies common sense.
“It would be like tossing a coin and having it come up heads 10 quintillion
times in a row,’’ he claimed.
So, what exactly are the odds against human life existing from a random explosion in cosmic history?
A research article called “Has Science Discovered God?” on the Y-Jesus.
com website, says the odds defy all the laws of probability. The site, which operates as part of JesusOnline Ministries, makes some interesting analogies to help non-experts understand the odds.
“One astronomer calculates the odds at less than 1 chance in a trillion
trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion
trillion,’’ the writer explains.
“It would be far easier for a blind-folded person - in one try - to discover
one specially marked grain of sand out of all the beaches of the world.”
It adds: “Another example of how unlikely it would be for a random big
bang to produce life is one person winning over a thousand consecutive mega million dollar lotteries after purchasing only a single ticket for each.”
DNA - Nature’s Computer Software
Astronomers are not the only scientists seeing evidence of design in the
universe. Molecular biologists, for example, have discovered that the coding in DNA is so sophisticated and intricate that it's the ultimate computer software programme. In fact, Microsoft founder Bill Gates has famously been quoted saying that DNA is “far, far more complex than any software we have ever developed.” Inside the 37 trillion or so cells in every human body is DNA holding a code that is three billion letters long. Genome expert, Francis Collins, has tried to explain the complexity of DNA code in a single cell:
“A live reading of that code at a rate of three letters per second would take
thirty-one years, even if reading continued day and night." he wrote.
The brilliance behind DNA coding can't be overstated. Science has discovered that 99.9% of DNA is similar to everyone's genetic make-up. However, the sequencing is different in every single person. It means that inside every cell in every person is a three-billion-lettered DNA structure that is unique to them. Out of 7 billion people in the world today, no two will have the exact same DNA.
Molecular biologist and DNA’s co-discoverer, Francis Crick, believed that the mini-computer within every cell could never have originated naturally.
“The origin of life appears at the moment to almost be a miracle, so many
are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going, ’he claims.
Intelligent Design or Divine Creator
Still, most scientists continue to talk about ‘intelligent design' rather than
a Creator. English physicist Paul Davies speaks of an unknown ‘design’ in the universe. Francis Collins; The Language of God; 2006. Francis Crick; Life Itself; 1981 "There is for me powerful evidence that something is going on behind it all,'' he said. "It seems as though somebody has fine-tuned nature's numbers to make the Universe…. The impression of design is overwhelming." Fred Hoyle, the astronomer who coined the dismissive term the “big bang,” spoke about a 'super-intellect' behind the universe.
He argued that living organisms could not have arisen by chance alone.
“A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing 747, dismembered and in disarray,’’ he writes. “A whirlwind happens to blow
through the yard.“What is the chance that after its passage a fully assembled 747, ready to fly, will be found standing there? So small as to be negligible…”Hoyles remarks were similar to Stephen Hawking’s in A Brief History of Time:
“The remarkable fact is that the values of these numbers seem to have
been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life." Some scientists are determined to deny any possibility of a Divine Creator in the world. Genome expert Crick preferred to attribute the genius behind DNA to aliens rather than consider a God. In a theory called Directed Panspermia, he and British chemist Leslie Oriel suggested that life may have been started by an advanced extra-terrestrial civilisation. Crick claimed that the universe is old enough for other intelligent civilisations to have built a spaceship and introduced organisms to the earth.
( Paul Davies; The Cosmic Blueprint; 1988. Fred Hoyle; The Intelligent Universe; 1983 Stephen Hawking; A Brief History of Time; 1996)
Not many scientists are convinced that the origins of the universe lie
with aliens.
However, agnostic astronomer, physicist and cosmologist Robert
Jastrow, acknowledged that many of his co-workers recoil from the idea of
God. “When a scientist writes about God, his colleagues assume he is either over the hill or going bonkers,’’ he claimed. He also revealed some scientists' frustration that the possibility of a Creator can’ be denied.
“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream,’’ he wrote. “He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.’’
A 2009 Pew Research Centre survey showed American scientists are half as likely as the general public to believe in God or a universal power. Still, the survey also found that the percentage of scientists that believe in some form of a deity was 51 per cent. One of those is U.S. geneticist Francis Collins, a former director of the Human Genome Project.
Collins, a convert from atheism to Christianity as a result of his work, sees a close affinity between God and new scientific discoveries. “I have found there is a wonderful harmony in the complementary truths of science and faith,” he wrote. “The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. God can be found in the cathedral or in the laboratory. By investigating God's majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship.”
