The odds against a universe like ours emerging out of something like the big bang are enormous…. I think clearly there are religious implications whenever you start to discuss the origins of the universe.
STEPHEN W. HAWKING
A commonsense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.
Physicists are running into stone walls of things that seem to reflect intelligence at work in natural law.
The impression of design is overwhelming.
The fine tuning of the universe provides prima facie evidence of deistic design. Take your choice: blind chance that requires multitudes of universes or design that requires only one.
How is it that common elements such as carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen happened to have just the kind of atomic structure that they needed to make the molecules upon which life depends? It is almost as though the universe had been consciously designed.
The universe, it seems, is fine- tuned to let life and consciousness flower.
The more I examine the universe and the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known we were coming.
