Contemporary Scientific Evidence

For the Existence of God

Atheist Richard Dawkins has said that “the universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose … nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.” According to Dawkins, careful observations about the universe provide strong reasons to reject the existence of God. But is this correct? In this eBook, Stephen Meyer argues to the contrary, examining three major scientific discoveries during the last 100 years that directly contradict the expectations of atheism. Instead, these discoveries—from cosmology, physics, and biology—provide scientific evidence for the existence of a transcendent, intelligent, and active Creator. Science, in short, strongly supports belief in God.
