PEOPLE WHO ARE

ATHEISTS DO NOT BELIEVE

IN GOD. THEY BELIEVE THAT

the natural world is all that exists.

They say that everything that

exists must “obey” the laws

of nature. They insist that

nothing, at any time, has

ever violated a natural

law. This way of thinking,

however, runs into some very

serious problems.

The first problem atheists have is

that no natural law can account for

how the Universe got here. Most

atheists say that billions of years

ago a tiny ball of matter exploded

in the Big Bang. But when you ask

them where that tiny ball of matter

came from, they cannot give you

a natural explanation. In fact, all

the laws of nature prove a tiny ball

of matter

cannot

come into exis-

tence by itself, neither can it come

from nothing. Something that was

not operating according to natural

laws would have been required to

originate the tiny ball of matter in

the first place.

Second, those atheists who

believe in the Big Bang say that it

caused all the order that we see in

nature. Again, when we look at how

explosions “naturally” act, they do

not cause order and complexity.

They cause disorder and a mess. If

you put a stick of dynamite in a box

with computer parts, the laws at

work in nature will never allow the
