“All my experience as a physicist leads me to believe that there is order in the universe. As we have been going to higher and higher energies and as we have studied structures that are smaller and smaller, we have found that the laws, the physical principles, that describe what we learn become simpler and simpler. The rules we have discovered become increasingly coherent and universal. There is a simplicity, a beauty, that we are finding in the rules that govern matter that mirrors something that is built into the logical structure of the universe at a very deep level.”
Atheist Physicist Steven Weinberg, “Facing Up: Science and Its Cultural Adversaries” (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2001), 24,25
Atheists can't seem to grasp that there is no reason whatsoever why the universe had to have "rules" which it obeys, let alone rules of mathematics. I had one atheist tell me that the Pauli Exclusion Principle HAD to exist. It most certainly did not. The PEP was "Put In" AT the singularity, along with about 50 other constants, qualities and values. Everything that governs our universe, eveything that had to govern our universe was finely tuned to an exquisite degree just prior to the biggest explosion ever. With mathematical precision beyond anything that humans can conceive, this explosion put in place a universe that was life supporting rather than the much more probable life destroying universe that would have come into being had the Big Bang been truly accidental.
