Is Science Burying Atheism?

By Jon Kauffman

37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:

38 “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”

 “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”

40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

Luke 19:37-40 NIV

Are the stones in America crying out praises to God?

I recently finished reading “Return of the God Hypothesis” by Stephen C. Meyer. Stephen says:

Three key scientific discoveries … supported theistic belief—what I call “the return of the God hypothesis”: (1) evidence from cosmology suggesting that the material universe had a beginning; (2) evidence from physics showing that from the beginning the universe has been “finely tuned” to allow for the possibility of life; and (3) evidence from biology establishing that since the beginning large amounts of new functional genetic information have arisen in our biosphere to make new forms of life possible—implying… the activity of a designing intelligence.

Meyer, Stephen C. Return of the God Hypothesis (pp. 12-13). HarperOne. Kindle Edition.

Stephen begins his book exploring the history of science showing how Christianity made science possible. He then looks at some of the scientific evidence supporting a theistic belief.

Science cannot proof the existence of God in a mathematical sense, but with the knowledge we have from science, philosophy and theology, we can see that Christianity is the most coherent belief system and most likely to be true.

In a recent video I watched on YouTube, Eric Mataxes asks Mathematician Dr. John Lennox “Has Science buried God?” Dr. Lennox says “No.”

I think there is a real possibility that with “Return of the God Hypothesis” Meyer has a demonstrated that Science is burying atheism.

I would highly recommend reading “Return of the God Hypothesis.”

  1. Hi Jon,
    Truth is that in my spirit, God manifests Himself to me daily. I know you understand what I am saying. And intelligence tells me that nothing begets nothing….we cannot make something out of nothing. No mystery big boom or splitting of an atom simply happened to usher in the planets and Earth with all its life. As a medical person, I can go no further than to contemplate the wonder of our miraculous bodies and know that someone of great intelligence and authority created mankind, and the universe. Great post! Bravo for science that gets the fact that there is a GOD.
