Author Says Science Supports Biblical Creation Story

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
According to a recent survey conducted by Wirthlin Worldwide, most Americans believe science can prove that the universe has always existed and more than 43 percent believe scientists can prove life exists on other planets. But one Christian author and proponent of Òintelligent designÓ says he is not surprised such outdated scientific ideas dominate American thinking. Lee Strobel is a former atheist, a Yale Law School graduate, and a journalist who has written a series of books encouraging people to investigate scienceÕs latest dataÑfacts that he says point toward an intelligent designer. ÒThe evidence of science does support what the Bible tells us. As one nano-scientist, James Tour of Rice University, told me: ÔThe more you study science, the more it points you toward God.ÕÓ Strobel says. The authorÕs newest book is called The Case For a Creator: a Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God (Zondervan, 2004). In it, he encourages educators, parents, and students to examine scienceÕs current findings instead of just giving in to long-held naturalistic views. ÒThe evidence from a variety of scientific disciplines from discoveries over the last 50 years points toward the existence of a creator,Ó he says. (From Agape Press)

Although I have not read this book, it appears worthwhile to be placed on our reading list.
