Since When Do Explosions Create Order (from my new book “After You Die” releases 9-4-12)
If you throw a stick of dynamite in a house, the house is not going to blow up and have all the pieces fall down in a sequence. They’re not going to fall in specific “size” order. You’re not going to see all the red things fall in one spot, all the blue things fall in another spot and all the green things in another spot. They’re going to be chaotically mixed up. We all know this instinctively. When I see the mess my son has made of his room each week, I may say, “it looks like a bomb went off in here!” (Parents, you know what I mean!) We say this because we know that explosions create great disorder. They scatter things about, in completely random ways.
And so does nature. How about Hurricane Katrina… was any order created there? How about the World Trade Center strikes… any order created? How about the tsunamis in Indonesia and Japan… order, anyone? Yet atheism would have us believe that we all got our start from a big, giant explosion!!
Fred Hoyle was the physicist who coined the phrase, “The Big Bang” (though he actually disagreed with the theory). When researching the phenomenally precise and detailed requirements for the formation of life, he concluded, “a common sense interpretation of the facts suggest a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with the chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question” (quoted from page 51 of my new book, “After You Die”).
Do you think the incredible sophistication and order of our planet could arise from a random explosion?
