Scholars Speak of our Finely Tuned Universe

The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a God, is one of the most important questions we have to answer. I think it is a scientific question. – Richard Dawkins

The universe is unlikely. Very unlikely. Deeply, shockingly, unlikely – Discover magazine

The laws of science, as we know them at present, contain many fundamental numbers… the values of these numbers seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life. – Professor Stephen Hawking

The Universe we live in seems to be a very unlikely place… Are we just lucky? Or is there some deep significance to the fact that we live in a Universe just right for us? – New Scientist magazine

The impression of design is overwhelming. – Professor Paul Davies

Nothing has shaken my atheism as much as this discovery. – Professor Sir Fred Hoyle

Although I was once sharply critical of the argument to design, I have since to come to see that, when correctly formulated, this argument constitutes a persuasive case for the existence of God. – Professor Anthony Flew

Richard Dawkins claims that God is a delusion and that religious faith is evil. But what if the scientific evidence itself is telling a different story? Over the past fifty years scientists have uncovered a series of amazing facts which show that the creation is an extremely unlikely place, fine-tuned in specific ways that make human life possible. It shows all the signs that it has been purposefully designed as a place for us to live.
