Author: Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God
Is science leading us to God? According to author Eric Metaxas, yes, it is.
In a Wall Street Journal article, Metaxas wrote, "Doesn't assuming that an intelligence created these perfect conditions require far less faith than believing that a life-sustaining earth just happened?"
Metaxas' article has generated almost 6,000 comments and more than 350,000 likes on Facebook, but not without controversy.
Metaxas joined Anna Kooiman on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning to discuss the article and his thoughts on science and God.
"The more science knows, the more amazed scientists are at how fragile and finely calibrated everything had to be for the universe to come into existence and then for the Earth to come into existence and have all the elements to support life," Metaxas said.
The more we know, the more it seems impossible to believe that random chance and forces led to that, Metaxas said.
Metaxas noted that even famed intellectual and atheist Christopher Hitchens admitted that the strongest argument for the existence of God is this argument, the "fine-tuning argument."
"This is powerful evidence. You can't dismiss it," Metaxas said. "These are facts and the main thing for me is this information hasn't been out there in the mainstream."
