The Scientific Reasoning & Proof for GOD

Updated: May 23, 2021

If there is a God, what is the proof? For me, physics proved it when I learned that the fundamental constants in our universe work out perfectly to support life. Take gravity, the attractive Force between two objects (M and m) separated by a distance r, expressed by the equation F=GMm/r². Now, don’t be intimidated by the value of G, the gravitational constant, which is 6.674⋅10−11N(m/kg)2. The important point is that the value is perfect to allow life in our universe and any deviations would mean a stillborn universe.

If the gravitational value was slightly stronger, then after the universe was formed at Big Bang, the universe would have collapsed into itself. If the value was slightly weaker, then the universe would have expanded, but no stars or galaxies would have come together. For less than a one percent difference, we’re not talking about a different life, we’re talking about no life! The perfect values to support life are also true for other universal constants like the strong nuclear force.

So how do scientists explain this perfection? Well, they believe that everything is random. Therefore, there must be an infinite number of universes (multiverse), and we just happen to be in the right one. All other universes have randomly different constants that don’t support life. To me, this sounds like a rationale to support a flawed hypothesis, but the alternative would be for these scientists to believe in a God and universe designer.

I would like to use an analogy. Say a performer flipped a coin 20 times and each time it landed on heads. I would turn to the scientist who believes in randomness and bet him that the next flip would be heads. He would know that each flip was random, landing on heads half the time and tails the other half, so would accept the bet for tails. The performer would flip the coin and again it would land on heads. He could then show it was a two-headed coin, meaning the flips were not random but designed.

Frustrated, the scientists might ask, “Well then, what created God?” I’ve run out of room here but answer this question in my book.
