Fantastic - enquiry into the false claim on the London buses that there probably is no God

Ruth Gledhill points our attention to the investigation that might go ahead into the false claim that there is no God.

The man inspiring the investigation (inspired by God, no doubt), points us to the scientific evidence for God's existence.

He points attention to Sir Stephen Hawking, who said,

"The remarkable fact is that the values of these numbers (i.e. the constants of physics) seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life" (p. 125)... "if the electric charge of the electron had been only slightly different, stars would have been unable to burn hydrogen and helium, or else they would not have exploded... It seems clear that there are relatively few ranges of values for the numbers (for the constants) that would allow for development of any form of intelligent life. Most sets of values would give rise to universes that, although they might be very beautiful, would contain no one able to wonder at that beauty." Hawking said this was evidence of "a divine purpose in Creation and the choice of the laws of science (by God)" (ibid. p. 125).
