Dave: Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying, “The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.”

Jeff: We’ve only got 60-seconds – but pause for a second and think about the immensity of that statement!

Dave: Okay, enough… we can understand the world around us. The fact we can comprehend things, and our universe isn’t pure randomness means something!

Jeff: If, flying in a plane, you looked down and saw a lone island with all the rocks organized to spell out H-E-L-P, you would never say, “What, what a coincide of natural formation!”

Dave: It’s comprehensible. And because it is, you know intelligence was at work.

Jeff: Stephen Hawking, who is not a Christian wrote, “It would be very difficult to explain why the universe should have begun in just this way, except as the act of a God who intended to create beings like us.”

Dave: For more information read, Dr. Hugh Ross’ book, “Why the Universe Is the Way It Is.”
