Religion and science have been pitted against each other for ages. However, religion and science aren’t enemies, but instead they’re friends. Studying science reveals greater truths of God. The particular aspects of our universe reflect certain truths about God and His character, especially His love for us.

Our universe was created with purpose and not by “random chance” (i.e. Darwinian evolution). Science Proves God

For the purpose of this blog, I will focus on scientific truths that demonstrate that we matter to God. God created this universe with precise measurements to sustain human life. If things in our universe were slightly different, we would be unable to survive within this universe.

Here are scientific truths that show we matter to God, since this universe was created specifically for us to thrive, not die:

  • Raise or lower the universes rate of expansion by even one part in a million, and it would have rule out the possibility of life.
  • If the average distance between stars were any greater, plants like earth would not have been formed; any smaller, the planetary orbits necessary for life would not have occurred.
  • If the ratio of carbon to oxygen had been slightly different than it is, none of us would have been here to breathe the air.
  • Change the tilt of the earth’s axis slight in one direction, and we would freeze. Change it the other direction, and we’d burn up.
  • Suppose the earth had been a bit closer or further from the sun, or just a little larger or smaller, or if it rotated at a speed any different from the one we’re spinning at right now. Given any of these changes, the resulting temperature variations would be completely fatal.

The world around us reveals the love from the One above us.

God was purposeful in how He created the univese. He had us specifically in mind.

We matter to God. The universe proves it.

Religion and science are friends. The science in textbooks, which rules out the existence of God, is extremely biased and not real science.

Good science points to the good God.


Why do you think most pit religion and science against one another?

  1. Catch this syllogism: Everything that has a beginning has a cause – The universe has a beginning – Therefore the universe has a cause. That cause is none other than an THE intricate creator, namely God. Everything we see was created by someone, therefore to keep ourselves logically consistent, we must assume that the universe is no different. Thanks for posting.

  2. Jordan, great blog. One of my pastors puts it this way: if a watch, being complex, has a watch maker, then the universe, being far more complex than a watch, MUST HAVE A UNIVERSE MAKER!!!

  3. i think God made it where we would die if the earth was any different than the way it is now, just so we can know that he is the 1 in control and we are only here because of him.

    As for science and religion, in my bio class a year ago, the professor was teaching evolution. Over a few weeks we went over which animals came first and which animals came after them, and so forth. It made a lot of sense, i really did seem like science proved fish came first… and then the birds… and then the land animals… and then us humans… but WAIT… where have i seen this pattern before?? THE BIBLE! God filled the oceans, then the sky, then the land and THEN us humans. If science was trying to prove God wasnt really it failed epicly!

    • Great point! Not to mention humanity has (scientifically) only been around for about 100,000 years. So we evolved extra ordinarily fast. So even of all the animals evolved to a point or whatever, their was absolutely an intervention, especially with humanity. We are clearly different from the other species on this planet. Our mind is capable of amazing things. No species comes close. The dolphin is second but its a distant second.

  4. I’ve read about those measurements and there like 20 which scientists agree if they weren’t in complete sync. Life would not be possible. God is so great and powerful it makes my heart just melt.

  5. 10 Reasons We Know the New Testament Is True by Frank Turek is an amazing video on YouTube. I would definitely recommend; it’s the video that got me excited about apologetics. He’s also the author of I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist. By the way, I completely agree:)

  6. This doesn’t use any actual scientific evidence except some random things that have been said over the years especially the one about the tilt of earth and its degrees…that would make the earth slightly warmer or cooler by maybe a degree or two depending on where you live. Also, like i said there is no exact scientific evidence being used here only vague statements that you pass off as fact. Also, this doesn’t prove any more than it proves Darwin. Evolution is caused by our environment. The various things and constants and proportions or conditions of the universe all have a hand in how humanity is how it is. And if people say we can’t comprehend god’s eternal life because of our conceptions of time than what’s to say that the same thing can be said about the universe

  7. G-Genetics- the genetic codes of the living things on this planet are far to complicated and diverse to have been created by mere chance, or from some mystical energy
    O-Origin-Everything that is created has and origin, most logically explained by GOD
    D-Design- The design of the planet earth and the rest of the solar system is far too perfect to have been created by some mere chance, one minor change in detail could have meant certain death. Or life could have never existed in the first place
    L-Laws-Where did the laws of the universe come from? They’re not matter or energy, but they govern how both operate. There is no intrinsic reason for the laws of nature to exist. In fact, these laws had to be created and in place when matter and energy appeared, or there would be total chaos. The laws of the universe require that a lawgiver calibrated them and set them into effect.Key illustration: gravity. Without this force that causes mass to attract other objects, life could not exist. And the intensity of all the forces must be in precise ratios to one another.The famous physicist Stephen Hawking stated: “The universe and the laws of physics seem to have been specifically designed for us. If any of about 40 physical qualities had more than slightly different values, life as we know it could not exist: Either atoms would not be stable, or they wouldn’t combine into molecules, or the stars wouldn’t form the heavier elements, or the universe would collapse before life could develop, and so on” (Austin American-Statesman, October 19, 1997).

    Who caused mass to affect its surroundings as it does to the degree that it does? Who made the other laws that must have been exquisitely designed and calibrated to work in total harmony? The logical answer: It must be an utterly supreme and all-powerful Intelligence.
    Y-Yield-What does believing in God yield? Answer: positive results, especially in the long run!
    Key illustration: answered prayer. If there were no God, then prayers for supernatural intervention would never be answered. Yet there are so many examples of answered prayer all around us-of miraculous interventions that defy physical explanation. There are simply vast numbers of witnesses of this phenomenon, including this author. This should strengthen our faith in the fact that God exists and that He cares about what happens to us.
    If someone wants to try and convince me there is no GOD goodluck, I’m Pentecostal I have seen the power of GOD. I prayed over a man onetime that could not walk and was in a wheelchair, after I said in the name of JESUS, amen, I rolled him to a dumpster he stood up threw in his wheelchair and walked back to his house with me! Amazing right? This is just one of my many testimonies!

  8. The thing with these arguments is, sure the world is perfect for us to live in, but we wouldn’t be here to know if it wasn’t perfect. So the world we live in is always going to be perfect, because it actually can’t be any other way with us still here.

    I personally believe God created the world through the Big Bang and evolution. God doesn’t make decide for us what colour socks we wear in the morning, or who we hang out with. Whilst we could ask Him for guidance in those decisions, we still have free will, and can choose what to do. Whilst He knows everything that will happen, He doesn’t make everything happen, we’re free to screw up our lives if we so wish.

    Why would this be any different from the way He created the universe? He didn’t point to a clump of atoms and make them form a particular molecule, rather He set of a reaction and let it take place, resulting in successful and unsuccessful results, much as we do in a science experiment. Each fundamental particle He created has it’s own mass, charge and way of interacting with other particles. I think He just started it off and let the particles do what they do.

    Having said all that, I don’t really think knowing how the Universe came to be is that important in the scheme of things. What matters is that we know the truth do the crucifixion and resurrection, the extent of God’s love for us

  9. If science points to God, why is there nothing in the scientific literature about it? Why do only fundamentalist Christian bloggers say that science proves God, instead of, you know, the scientific literature?
    Why do only fundamentalist Christians think that evolution purportedly creates things by “random chance”? Natural selection is not random, it selects the traits best suited to keep the genes going. That’s the opposite of random chance lol.

    Mr. Kranda’s strong anthropic principle argument is also logically invalid. It commits the fallacy of affirming the consequent. The dog wags the tail, the tail does not wag the dog, and we are evolved to live in this part of the universe, the universe is not made for us to live in. Douglas Adams eviscerates this argument better than anyone:

    Douglas Adams c.1998:
    “Imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, ‘This is an interesting world I find myself in, an interesting hole I find myself in, fits me rather neatly, doesn’t it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!’ This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it’s still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything’s going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for.”

    • except for the fact that puddles don’t wake up or think. but I would note that as the puddle slowly “dies” it goes to “heaven”. Some would even say it returns to earth in another incarnation. I love Douglas’ work, but he, and apparently you, missed the mark, dare I say sinned with that amusing analogy.
