A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim?...

Anthropic (Anthropos-Man) Constants represent the design so easily apprehended when looking at the Universe. These five constants represent a mere fraction of the Anthropic Constants which number over 100. If any one of these were not precisely fine-tuned just the way they are, we would not be here!!

Here are five Anthropic Constants adapted from “I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist” Norman Geisler and Frank Turek.

  1. Oxygen Level
  2. Atmospheric Transparency
  3. Moon-Earth Gravitational Interaction
  4. Carbon Dioxide Level
  5. Gravity

Oxygen Level

Oxygen comprises 21% of the atmosphere, if the level moved to 25%, fires would erupt spontaneously. If it were 15%, human beings would suffocate.

Atmospheric Transparency

If the atmosphere were less transparent, not enough solar radiation would reach the earth’s surface. If it were more transparent, we would be bombarded with far too much solar radiation. (In addition to atmospheric transparency, the atmospheric composition of precise levels of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and ozone are in themselves anthropic constants)

 

Moon-Earth Gravitational Interaction

If the interaction were greater than it currently is, tidal effects on the oceans, atmosphere, and rotational period would be too severe. If it were less, orbital changes would cause climatic instabilities. In either event, life on earth would be impossible,

 

Carbon Dioxide Level

If the CO2 level were higher that it is now, a runaway greenhouse effect would develop (we’d all burn up). If the level were lower than it is now, plants would not be able to maintain efficient photosynthesis (we’d all suffocate)

 

Gravity

If the gravitational force were altered by 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000001 (37 0’s) percent, our sun would not exist, and, therefore, neither would we.

 

The question.

Did these constants just happen by themselves?

What is your explanation?
