Stephen Meyer Shatters The Myth Of The Multiverse

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR51OrawqIg “If you were designing a universe for life, I suspect you might design it differently. There is no evidence of designer purpose to our universe.” Lawrence Krauss. Are we really just insignificant specks in an accidental universe? Do we really just suck? Those are some dramatic claims but not everyone thinks that way. In fact, some very distinguished scientists disagree. Freeman Dyson, world renowned physicist and mathematician, says “The more I examine the universe and study the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known that we were coming.” So maybe it's not an accident that the Earth is habitable. We caught up with physicist Bijan Nemati, who was a senior engineer at NASA's jet propulsion lab for over…

If God made the universe, then who made God?

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Klf6747I9Ok As Christians we believe that God created the world. As soon as you talk to a non-believer and say God created the world, there's a question that almost always comes up next. Then who created God? One of the great atheists of the 20th Century known as Bertrand Russell wrote a book called Why I am not a Christian. He said “If the Christian says God made the world, then he has to be prepared to answer the question ‘Who made God?’” This question commits what we call a “category fallacy”. What if I asked you “How much does a musical note weigh?” You think “Musical notes, which are sound, and weight, these are distinct categories” and you're confused. “What does the color pink taste like?” Color is something…

Is the Design Hypothesis for the Fine-Tuning of the Universe Implausible?

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWhHt4pshyo Some detractors of design will say that the design hypothesis is in fact implausible and just as implausible as physical necessity or chance. For example, it is sometimes said that on the design hypothesis, the existence of the designer himself remains unexplained. It’s said that an intelligent mind also exhibits complex order so if the universe needs an explanation, then the designer also needs an explanation. And if you say “well the designer has no explanation” then why not say the same thing about the universe, that it has no explanation for the observed fine-tuning?  This objection I think however is based upon a misconception of the nature of explanation. It’s widely recognized in the philosophy of science that in order to recognize an explanation as the best, you…

Big Bang: Something from Nothing?

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m82PmE6oASo How does something come out of nothing? How do we have a universe that comes out of nothing? Astronomers believe there are two trillion galaxies in the observable universe. Scientists are still trying to figure out how all of this arose seemingly out of nothing. It turns out if you apply quantum mechanics to gravity, then in fact space itself becomes dynamical and universes, spaces themselves and time can pop into existence where there was none before. So you can create whole universes where there was no universe before. Indeed in that way, you might imagine creating a universe from literally nothing. Our universe popped into existence from literally nothing? There is no cause for all of this? So straight up nothing, no matter, no creator, then “poof” the…

Richard Dawkins FINALLY admits there’s evidence for God?

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHXXacBAm2A&t=153s Today we're going to be looking at a short interview clip from Justin Brierley where he talked to Richard Dawkins who ended up admitting that there's evidence for God.  Dawkins: I believe that's very profound. I mean if somebody was going to convince me of the need for a God, it would be there. It would not be in my own field of biology and I've read the Language of God and indeed I reread it today. I really read it first when it came out. When you come on later to the origin of the physical constants, now that's getting warm, that’s getting close to a good argument, unlike the morality one.  Brierley: Is it mainly because it is essentially a scientific argument? Dawkins: No, it's obvious that…

Richard Dawkins believes everything is created from nothing

Cosmology_Physics
https://youtu.be/CexIwBpJb9o You're an atheist so you believe the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything. I mean it can't be nothing. We all have to start from some point. I wouldn't say nothing created it. There had to be something there in the beginning. You like Richard Dawkins don't you? Yeah I like him. Do you believe nothing created everything, a scientific impossibility which is what he believes? You don't believe in a creator of all things? If he says that I think it's a very strange thing to say. Well he says it. It's insane. Nothing can't create anything because it's nothing. It has to be something in the beginning. Nowhere in our history of human reality has something kind of disappeared out of nowhere. Do you believe that nothing…

Is there a God who created the universe?

Cosmology_Physics
https://youtu.be/gGqPJMndF8g There was no evidence that the planetary system could have come about… However, the more that scientists began to look at the amazing universe that they inhabited, they began to realize that there were certain factors that were simply very very fine-tuned for the existence of man, of molecules, of organic life. And the more they looked, the more they realized that we are in effect on really quite a knife edge and there are many many indications that this universe has been very specially designed and men is at the very center of it.  If we try to model the universe as we know it, as we try to build a mathematical model, it reflects what we know, we quickly discover there are thousands of parameters and ratios…

What Caused the Universe?

Cosmology_Physics
What caused the universe? Proof for God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cia3C2Bn6v0 The Law of Cause and Effect says that for every material effect that you see in this world, there is a cause that came before it or was simultaneous to it and that was greater than it. We all understand that the universe is a material effect and so we have to somehow get down to the bottom of what could cause that. If the universe in its entirety is a material effect, then the cause would have to be something other than the effect--the universe. So it's got to be something outside of the universe. As we start to look at what answers are available to us that would give us a cause that would be outside of the universe, the…

Fine-tuning of the universe

Cosmology_Physics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EE76nwimuT0 From galaxies and stars down to atoms and subatomic particles, the very structure of our universe is determined by these numbers. These are the fundamental constants and quantities of the universe. Scientists have come to the shocking realization that each of these numbers has been carefully dialed to an astonishingly precise value, a value that falls within an exceedingly narrow life-permitting range. If any one of these numbers were altered by even a hairsbreadth, no physical, interactive life of any kind could exist anywhere. There'd be no stars, no life, no planets, no chemistry. Consider gravity, for example. The force of gravity is determined by the gravitational constant. If this constant varied by just one in ten to the sixtieth parts, none of us would exist. To understand how…
