The Scientific Credibility of Faith with Dr. Hugh Ross

Do the heavens declare the glory of God or do they show indifferent chance?

Special guest Dr. Hugh Ross from Reasons To Believe joins me to talk about science and the Bible.

Dr. Ross gives his testimony for how he became a Christian after searching for answers in other religions.

We discuss various reasons the universe is no accident:

  1. Evidence for fine tuning is exploding in recent years.
  2. The moon is but one of many evidences that the universe is fine-tuned.
  3. The “zero energy” hypothesis doesn’t prove the universe came from nothing.
  4. A multiverse is a poor argument against fine tuning.
  5. Humans are a special creation of God, not a product of macroevolution.

Some fun questions toward the end include the following:

  1. What are black holes and what happens to things that get sucked in?
  2. What about the anisotropic synchrony convention for the one-way speed of light proposed by Dr. Jason Lisle?
