Topic Notes

  • The Anthropic Principle
    • From Dr. Patrick Glynn

    • Gravity is roughly 1039 times weaker than electromagnetism. If gravity had been 1033 times weaker than electromagnetism, “stars would be a billion times less massive and would burn a million times faster
    • The nuclear weak force is 1028 times the strength of gravity. Had the weak force been slightly weaker, all the hydrogen in the universe would have been turned to helium (making water impossible, for example).
    • A stronger nuclear strong force (by as little as 2 percent) would have prevented the formation of protons—yielding a universe without atoms. Decreasing it by 5 percent would have given us a universe without stars.
  • Einstein’s Atheism?
  • “In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for support of such views.” – Albert Einstein
  • The Weak Anthropic Principle (WAP)
  • Richard Dawkins, the atheist, in his book, “The Blind Watchmaker” himself says: “Each nucleus [of a cell]… contains a digitally coded database larger, in information content, than all 30 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica put together. And this figure is for each cell, not all of the cells of the body put together”-
    How can this guy be an atheist??
    • Other Evidences:

    • There is a small habitable zone for the Earth. If the Earth was 5% closer to the sun we would have runaway greenhouse effects: 900 F. If it were 20% farther, carbon-dioxide clouds would form, initiating a cycle of ice and cold that sterilized Mars.
    • We are a terrestrial planet, allowing plate tectonics
    • An atmosphere of oxygen and nitrogen; ensures a temperate climate, protection from radiation, etc.
    • We have a large moon which stabilizes our axis and climate
    • The Sun is the type of star that is perfect to stabilize Earth’s rotation
  • Taking just 20 factors, considering that there are 100,000,000,000 stars in our galaxy, the odds are still 1 out of 1,000,000,000,000,000
  • Meaning that we are RARE in galaxy

  • considers this the most difficult contradiction: Mary and the Empty Tomb
  • Matthew 28:1-2, Matthew 28:8-9, John 20:1-2 and John 20:11-12

  • If Jesus puts pain in your life to bring you closer to him why does he bring pain that turns you away from him? …there are times I feel like he is that friend that messed me over, and is trying to make it up to me, but I’m scared to trust him.
