Out of chaos comes a book!

Here is a ridiculous example of life apart from God, aka atheism so-called:

Image result for destroyed by tornado

A tsunami, hurricane, and a dozen tornadoes teamed up to ravage a well know printing press. Lo and behold, while they were partly successful in the utter destruction of the building with lumber, metal, glass, and paper flying around, they were disappointed that out of the chaos, their accident caused an out of the world experience:

From all the characters laying on the bench, the ink, the upper and lower case alphabets in racks, there was instantly assembled a dictionary. Poof. Instantly complete and unabridged. With maps, charts, Β a hundred languages utilized in gaining origins, yep, this massive accomplishment unlike the world has ever seen, was the result of a grand accident….just sitting there.

Then again, one could always admit to the Creator of the wonderful brain of Mr. Noah Webster. Or, one can remain deluded thinking that hurricanes create books.

  1. Amen, Colorstorm! 66 books written by 40 authors on 3 continents, spanning a thousand years or so, probably did not spring forth magically from a hurricane. Also,the way scripture reaffirms itself, each part related to another, you couldn’t do that even today with a super computer and a committee of Pulitzer prize winning authors. In fact, if you know anything about committees, that alone should convince you this is definitely the Divinely inspired word of God. πŸ™‚

      Not a whole lot of people would make this connection with the dictionary and the scriptures.

      Well done msb, but not surprised.

      Same point though as you say. The sheer impossibility of a book such as scripture to have originated, preserved, with.mere creatures and such consistency of purpose…….

      …it may be easier to believe that the tornado assembled the dictionary. πŸ˜‰

      And yep, your super computer could not comprehend such a work in a thousand lifetimes.

    Just what, are you trying to say there sir? That our existence and the world we live in is not due to some giant random explosion? Stop, making my head hurt with such thoughts.

    Kidding, great analogy there ColorStorm. Shor,t but stuffed with meaning.

    I just finished reading The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking. His big buzz phrase is Model-dependent realism.

    The book is a good one. Without going into a lot of mathematics, which would defeat the efforts of the vast majority of us to understand, the book explains the efforts of scientists to model the universe. What does such modeling involve? Scientists use mathematics to model cause and effect relationships.

    The Holy Grail of such modeling is the one equation that models (or explains) everything. What exactly is everything? Well, that is one of the things the book explains (If you are curious => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Grand_Design_(book) ). In short, consider a molecule and the forces at work. What that one equation would have to accurately describe is how that molecule behaves both by itself and with respect to the presence of other molecules. What is wild is that Hawking expects that equation to explain the formation of universes, not just our universe.

    Here is an excerpt from that Wiki article.

    The book concludes with the statement that only some universes of the multiple universes (or multiverse) support life forms. We, of course, are located in one of those universes. The laws of nature that are required for life forms to exist appear in some universes by pure chance, Hawking and Mlodinow explain (see Anthropic principle)

    Consider the boldness of the theory. Other universes? In order to get around the scientific improbably our existence, atheists have to believe in a multiverse, as opposed to a universe. Do we have any scientific evidence that demonstrates the existence of a multiverse? No. As far as I can tell, we just have people who have faith in the existence of a multiverse.

    Hawking is a genius. In order to be productive, he has to overcome a horrid disability. I cannot help but respect the man and hope God has mercy on his soul. For such a powerful mind to sit helpless in a shriveling body year after year, day after day. To Hawking I suspect the Problem of Evil is quite personal.

    Yet we all suffer. We all die. Our hope — our only hope — is that our Maker knows what He is doing, that the logical patterns men like Hawking discern in Creation indicate a Creator, a Great Designer.

    In a largely sterile universe, we exist. We live. We love. We die. We hope for the resurrection of the dead. We put our faith in the Grace and the Mercy of our Lord, Jesus.

      Sorry CT, but I strongly disagree when we say so and so is a genius. Here we have a man disagreeing with Einstein who was at the time abraded by Tesla. Pick your genius.

      We can choose sides as to who and what defines ‘genius,’ but I am of the opinion, that if things (such as the universe) cannot be explained to a ten year old, without theories, allegations, suppositions, then the knowledge is suspect.

      I believe God does not leave explainable things in the hands of atheists for them to molest.

      But I certainly agree that Hawking is a fine example of how a man can live a fulfilling life in the midst of great difficulty.

      His quote in the link about the universe needing not God is not too smart.

      • Kind of interesting Colorstorm, I just watched a movie about Hawking’s life, his love life actually. Completely different perspective,but fascinating because at several points in his life, God is in, God is even in the math, and than alas, God is out, God cannot fit into the equation anymore. When he is first diagnosed he is given about a year to live but his wife marries him anyway, puts her life on hold for love. He declines, but he survives, thrives even and they a have several kids. She is a Christian woman with a powerful faith and a willingness to pretty much sacrifice all for him, as if her love can heal not only his body but his spirit, too. That schism between her faith and his non belief probably contributes to their divorce. She hangs on for years, but he is romantically involved with his nurse and she eventually falls in love with her choir director.

        What really intrigued me was seeing God’s hand at work in his life, knock, knock, knocking on that door, and yet Hawking can’t hear, he can’t see. In a kind of sad way, his entire life is about seeking God intellectually,mathematically,and completely missing the fact that God is standing right in front of him. Like so,so many atheists he has a problem with authority, “religion is about authority, science is about reason,” he says. His own authority, allegedly vastly superior to God’s, as if believing you are bigger and badder than the Creator of the universe has not been done a thousand times before. πŸ™‚

        So,the Lord sometimes brings us low for a reason and that reason is not meanness, it’s actually love. Can’t be brought much lower than Hawkings, can’t have been brought back from the brink of death more times, can’t have been loved and blessed anymore than he has.

          Lots of similarities msb with this account of yours and Joni Eareckson, who married Mr Tada, in spite of the obvious weaknesses.

          Yet she, and him, are shining examples of the reality that while the outward man perishes, there is so much more.

          Their love is such a glue, and they serve such a God, while knowing of the ‘temporary inconveniences………..’ that they are but fleeting moments in the big picture.

          But you are right, God is always right there, if we would just consider that no, our intellect cannot supercede the Designer of the brain itself. Geezo.

          And oh, that authority thing. Yeah, try going one minute through life without bowing to something.

          And I can’t escape without mentioning God’s ever timely wisdom when He gives us a heads up on ‘science falsely called.’ πŸ˜‰

        @ColorStorm

        In a practical sense I don’t think we disagree. We associate genius with intellectual capacity, but we don’t associate genius with wisdom.

        Hawking’s understanding of mathematical modeling easily exceeds either yours or mine. What he knows is of great value and it works.

        Is Stephen Hawking wise? Someone who doesn’t believe in God? Not likely.

        What Hawking knows, he can explain. He has that gift. The problem is that some of what he thinks he knows is not true.

        It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so. ― Ronald Reagan

        Hawking believes in science. That is, Hawking believes in the power of his mind. God? Apparently, Hawking has no place for God in scheme of things, model-dependent realism. He apparent wants to apply a technique that has no applicability to the subject, God. Do we have capacity to understand God? No. Model how God interacts with His creation? No, but that is what Hawking wants. Otherwise, he thinks he can do without God.
