will agree that the final point in the ad for a DVD series about the cause of
life sounds impressive: ”Watch the marvellous story
about nothing turning itself into everything”! It would be another fantastic
story, should money in your bank account multiply itself without any previous
deposit. At Trollhättan, Sweden, automobiles would be
created, by tossing an ignited stick of dynamite into the SAAB factory there,
In a flyer regarding science and evolution I read comments regarding the
first beginnings of the universe: Without any assistance, nothing (from the DVD series above) compressed itself into
a tiny, tiny dot. This dot then stretched or blew itself up, without the use of energy. Thus, it is
assumed, helium and hydrogen came into being - emptiness had filled itself with
something! It is presumed that the natural elements came into existence through even
In the absence of the force of gravity (gravitation) the compression,
however, would never have stopped. Then nothing would have fallen into itself
for ever. And without gravitation the inflation would never have halted,
either. This means everything would have been a vacuum and this letter to the
editor would not have appeared.
bang - from the outset impossible in itself - would only have produced
radiation, and that will not hand you a universe. Through
creative activities, let it be noted, you make things, you do not destroy them.
Thus, the Big Bang disqualifies itself. Swedes are not expected to think
along these lines, but we cannot ignore the facts.
More from the flyer: Gases, like hydrogen
and helium, never form chunks. In frictionless (= having no resistance) space,
therefore, matter would have gone on spreading forever. Nonetheless, it is held that matter - without the aid
of a plan or a Creator - aggregated into the universe. According to evolutionary
thinking, the laws of nature would have been obliged to invent themselves. SAAB could, therefore, close its section for development, because new
models design and produce themselves at the factories of the competitors?
Moreover, the universe is mathematically designed, most orderly, and
fine-tuned. Without precise laws of nature from the outset, the planets would
have raced about like headless chickens or crashed into each other! A “Big
Bang” would, therefore, have rendered the exact orbits of the heavenly bodies impossible. An explosion brings about
chaos, not order.
Our non-heavenly Father the Evolution, thus, made a grave mistake; He
(She?) should, of course, have built energy into matter and already at the
start have created cohesive matter, i.e. without any destructive explosions
causing unnecessary work putting matter together into galaxies and life. The
wild workings of chance ought to have acted like God in Genesis 1, by speaking
forth planets and their living creatures plus necessary laws of nature. Since
the Creator is not allowed in Sweden, we are indeed facing a scientific dilemma
of giant proportions.
From the DVD, The Privileged Planet (and I did not only read its publicity materials) we learn, among other things, circa 20 prerequisites for life in space. Here are some of them: The planet in question must be localised within the Habitable Zone (if the Earth were closer to the Sun by 5%, it would be as hot as Venus; 20% further away and it would be as cold as Mars). It must circle the right type of star; be protected by gaseous giants; travel in a nigh on circular orbit around its sun; possess an atmosphere rich in oxygen; have the right mass; itself be circulated by a moon; be fitted with a magnetic field. Also required are flexible parts in its crust, streaming water, a correct correlation between oceans and continents, and a suitably quick planetary rotation. All conditions must be fulfilled simultaneously. For this to have happened spontaneously is mathematically impossible. In addition, small errors in the laws of physics - which are uniform throughout the cosmos - would prevent life. Finally, the beautiful, observable universe is easiest to behold and search into from precisely our pale, blue dot.
