    Why A Scientist Believes In God




    (Information in [brackets] are corrections based on the teachings of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad.)


    This article of Mr. A. Cressy Morrison, former President of the New York Academy of Sciences, first appeared in the "Reader's Digest" (January 1948); then on recommendation of Professor C. A. Coulson, F.R.S., Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, was republished in the "Reader's Digest" November 1960--It shows how science compels the scientists to admit to the essential need of a Supreme Creator.

    -------------------------


    We are still in the dawn of the scientific age and every increase of light reveals more brightly the handiwork of an intelligent Creator. In the 90 years since Darwin we have made stupendous discoveries; with a spirit of scientific humanity and of faith grounded in knowledge we are approaching even nearer to an awareness of God. For myself I count seven reasons for my faith.

    First: By unwavering mathematical law we can prove that our universe was designed and executed by a great engineering Intelligence. Suppose you put ten coins, marked from one to ten, into your pocket and give them a good shuffle. Now try to take them out in sequence from one to ten, [putting] back the coin each time and shaking them all again. Mathematically we know that your chance of first drawing number one is one in ten; of drawing one and two in succession, one in 100; of drawing one, two and three in succession, one in a thousand, and so on; your chance of drawing them all, from one to number ten in succession, would reach the unbelievable figure of one chance in ten thousand million.

    By the same reasoning, so many exacting conditions are necessary for life on earth that they could not possibly exist in proper relationship by chance. The earth rotates on its axis at one thousand [1,037 1/3] miles an hour; if it turned at one hundred miles an hour, our days and nights would be ten times as long as now, and the hot sun would then burn up our vegetation during each long day, while in the long night any surviving sprout would freeze.


    Again, the sun, source of our life, has a surface temperature of 12,000 [14,000] degrees Fahrenheit, and our earth is, just far enough away so that this "eternal fire" warms us just enough and not too much! If the sun gave off only one-half its present radiation, we would freeze, and if it gave half as much more, we would roast. The slant of the earth, tilted at an angle of 23 [23 ½] degrees, gives us our season; if it had not been so tilted, vapors from the ocean would move north and south, piling up for us continents of ice. If our moon was, say, only 50 thousand miles away instead of its actual distance, our tides would be so enormous that twice a day all continents would be submerged; even the mountains would soon be eroded away. If the crust of the earth had been only ten feet thicker, there would be no oxygen without which animal life must die. Had the ocean been a few feet deeper, carbon dioxide and oxygen would have been absorbed and no vegetable life could exist. Or if our atmosphere had been thinner, some of the meteors, now burned in space by the millions every day would be striking all parts of the earth, starting fires everywhere. Because of these, and host of other examples, there is not one chance in millions that life on our planet is an accident.

    Second: The resourcefulness of life to accomplish its purpose is a manifestation of all-pervading Intelligence. What life itself is, no [ordinary] man has fathomed. It has neither weight nor dimensions [not so], but it does have force; a growing root will crack a rock. Life has conquered water, land and air, mastering the elements, compelling them to dissolve and reform their combinations.

    Life, the sculptor, shapes all living things; an artist, it designs every leaf of every tree, and colours every flower. Life is a musician and has each bird to sing its love songs, the insects to call each other in the music of their multitudinous sounds.

    Life is a sublime chemist, giving taste to fruits and spices, and perfume to the rose changing water and carbonic acid into sugar and wood and, in so doing, releasing oxygen that animals may have the breath of life. Behold an almost invisible drop of protoplasm, transparent and jelly-like, capable of motion, drawing energy from the sun. This single cell, this transparent mist-like droplet, holds within itself the germ of life, and has the power to distribute this life to every living thing, great and small. The powers of this droplet are greater than our vegetation and animals and people, for all life came from it. [For the fuller truth, see words by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that all life comes from water.] Nature did not create life; fire-blistered rocks and a saltless sea could not meet the necessary requirements. Who, then, has put it here?

    Third: Animal wisdom speaks irresistibly of a good Creator who infused instinct into otherwise helpless little creatures. The young salmon spends years at sea, then comes back to his own river; and travels up the very side of the river into which flows the tributary where he was born. What brings him back so precisely? If you transfer him to another tributary he will know at once that he is off his course and he will fight his way down and back to the main stream and then turn up against the current to finish his destiny more accurately.

    Even more difficult to solve is the mystery of eels. These amazing creatures migrate at maturity from all ponds and rivers everywhere - those from Europe across thousands of miles of oceans - all bound for the same abysmal deeps near Bermuda. There they breed and die. The little ones, with no apparent means of knowing anything except that they are in a wilderness of water nevertheless find their way back not only to the very shore from which their parent came but thence to the rivers, lakes or little ponds - so that each body of water is always populated with eels.


    No American eel has ever been caught in Europe, no European eel in American waters. Nature has even delayed the maturity of the European eel by a year or more to make up for its longer journey.

    Where does the directing impulse originate?


    A wasp will overpower a grasshopper, dig a hole in the earth, sting the grasshopper in exactly the right place so that he does not die but becomes unconscious and lives on as a form of preserved meat. Then the wasp will lay her eggs handily so that her children when they hatch can nibble without killing the insect on which they feed, to them dead meat would be fatal. The mother then flies way and dies; she never sees her young. Surely the wasp must have done all this right the first time and every time, or else there would be no wasp. Such mysterious techniques cannot be explained by adaptation; they were bestowed.

    Fourth: Man has something more than animal instinct - the power of reason. No other animal has ever left a record of its ability to count ten or even to understand the meaning of ten. Where instinct is like a single note of a flute, beautiful but limited, the human brain contains all the notes of all the instruments in the orchestra. No need to belabour this fourth point; thanks to the human reason we can contemplate the possibility that we are what we are only because we have received a spark of Universal Intelligence.

    It goes to show the ignorance of science,,,for it did not take rocket scientist to see the order of the universe and realize that this was no accident. One simply has to look at nature and themselves in order to realize that there is a Supreme Order and effect to what we call Life...and that this is no Accident or result of any Big Bang as we have been misled to believe through the so called earlier scientist or educational system as it presently exist.

    Peace,



    BLKWriter, be my guess.




    IssaEl, weather it be Allah (swt), yahweh, Jah or just God.... The Most High remains the same, the rootless root from which all things have grown.

    <<And Was It A He Or A She>>>

    From my understanding, God is neither male or female but is ONE.



    <<<And What Was His Or Her Blood Type ? And How Tall Was He / She ?>>>

    Sounds like a "mortal" my brother, which is far from God.


    Peace....

    Peace,



    It's not a matter of getting "us" to believe anything. The point is scientists try to deny the existence of a Supreme Force but when you really take a look at science and break it down it proves that something is behind the cause of nature. You do know that this isn't the first time scientist have admitted that there is something greater then us?

    Let's BeReal Here Ok

    Let's not kid ourselves Here The Devil Hasn't Found God And We Both Know This To Be A Fact . It About Him Feeding You Ego = Telling You What You Want To Believe And Accept . Because According To You Own Bible It Speak Of An Invisible God Colossian 1;15 . And That Which In Invisible Can't Be Seen , Even You Should Know This , The God The He Speaking Is Himself Because He Is The One Who Has Written You So-Called Holy Books , And He Re-Writeing Them As We Speak


    Peace

    Peace,



    My Brother Issa, regardless of what scientist says, God exist. We could either accept or deny. We (Original Peoples) have been praying to the Most High since the beginning of time. The european hasn't introduce anything new. In fact "we" introduce the concept of a Higher Force to them. Even those holy books (Bible, Quran, Torah, Dead Sea Scrolls etc) have gotten their foundation from the ancient spiritual systems of our ancestors. This has nothing to do with ego-trip Brother Man, this is about exposing the european falsehood of science or Darwinism. Remember Brother, we have always been a spiritual people. "They" are the makers of this nonsense called "athieism.


    Peace.
