CHEMICAL LAWS AND GOD (CIRCA 1958)

What is the directing force that underlies the laws of statistics? When one applies the laws of chance to the proba­bility of an event occurring in Nature, such as the formation of a single protein molecule from the elements, even if we allow three billion years for the age of the earth or more, there isn’t enough time for the event to occur. Only by postulating a directional Force with a purposeful end can we account for the harmony and order which have come from chaos.

A LOOK BEHIND THE “NATURAL LAWS” (C. 1958)

If the brightest scientific minds through the centuries have studied to learn, by observations of great complexity, the existence and behavior of the various entities, it must follow that the intelli­gence of the One who designed these in the first place sur­passes the integrated value of human intelligence to date.

THE GREAT DESIGNER (C. 1958)

The most funda­mental rational reason for my belief in God is one which has been greatly bolstered by my engineering experience. Modern physics shows me that Nature is unable to order herself.

GEOLOGICAL DIRECTIVES (C. 1958)

The conclusion that the universe had a beginning is in accord with the simple Scriptural statement, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” as well as being strongly supported by thermodynamic, astronomic and geologic data.

THE REASONABLENESS OF THEISM (CIRCA 1958)

By comparing the evidences for and against Deity it is clear that while neither side is provided absolute proof, the atheistic view requires considerably more faith than the theis­tic view.

TRILLIONS OF LIVING CELLS SPEAK THEIR MESSAGE (C. 1958)

An Organizer of the universe is necessary to the creation of a cell—and to the minds of reasoning men search­ing for a first cause.

THINGS A FRUIT RANCHER’S BOY LEARNED (C. 1958)

Continued study of many organisms, especially in the fruit fly, indicates that most mutations are lethal.

FACTS FROM A FORESTER’S FIELDBOOK (C. 1958)

God is not the author of confusion. Quite in contrast, His creative acts are systematically arranged to exhibit order at its highest level.

FOOTSTEPS OF GOD IN THE PLANT WORLD (C. 1958)

The Divinely artistic beauty of plants—stems,leaves and flowers—greatly exceeds that which the greatest genius among men has produced.

GOD-ALPHA AND OMEGA (C.1958)

“…While laboring among the intricacies and infinitely minute particles of the labora­tory, I frequently have been overwhelmed by a sense of the infinite wisdom of God…”

A PERSONAL GOD, VIEWED SCIENTIFICALLY (C. 1958)

The only God in whom I can have a grain of confidence is the God of the Hebrew-Christian faith—the only personal God who could possibly be interested in each one of us on this minute speck of the universe we call Earth.

SCIENTIFIC REVELATIONS POINT TO A GOD (C. 1958)

The higher the evolutionary developments to which a creation leads, the stronger the evidence of a supreme intelligence behind that creation.

RANK MATERIALISM WILL NOT DO (C. 1958)

Astronomy points to a beginning in the far distant past and physics foretells an ultimate doom.

THE MOST VITAL QUESTION CONFRONTING US (C. 1958)

Atheism means strife and war. As a scientist I will have none of it. I consider it illogical and false, as a theory. In its practical aspects I consider it disastrous.

NATURE’S COMPLEXITY AND GOD (C. 1958)

Man also should be very hesitant to try to improve Nature’s balances—he will find that his human intelligence is no match for that of Nature’s God.
