• "There is for me powerful evidence that there is something going on behind it all....It seems as though somebody has fine-tuned nature's numbers to make the Universe....The impression of design is overwhelming".

    Paul Davies British astrophysicist
  • "Who created these laws? There is no question but that a God will always be needed."

    Barry Parker cosmologist
  • "As to the cause of the Universe, in context of expansion, that is left for the reader to insert, but our picture is incomplete without Him [God]."

    Edward Milne British cosmologist
  • "Here is the cosmological proof of the existence of God -- the design argument of Paley -- updated and refurbished. The fine tuning of the universe provides prima facie evidence of deistic design. Take your choice: blind chance that requires multitudes of universes or design that requires only one.... Many scientists, when they admit their views, incline toward the teleological or design argument."

    Ed Harrison cosmologist
  • "When I began my career as a cosmologist some twenty years ago, I was a convinced atheist. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that one day I would be writing a book purporting to show that the central claims of Judeo-Christian theology are in fact true, that these claims are straightforward deductions of the laws of physics as we now understand them. I have been forced into these conclusions by the inexorable logic of my own special branch of physics."

    Frank Tipler Professor of Mathematical Physics
  • "For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians (Rabbis) who have been sitting there for centuries."

    Robert Jastrow self-proclaimed agnostic
  • "The exquisite order displayed by our scientific understanding of the physical world calls for the divine."

    Vera Kistiakowsky MIT physicist
  • "When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature, it's very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would admit it."

    Tony Rothman physicist
  • "I would say the universe has a purpose. It's not there just somehow by chance."

    Roger Penrose mathematician and author
  • "Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, one with the very delicate balance needed to provide exactly the conditions required to permit life, and one which has an underlying (one might say 'supernatural') plan."

    Arno Penzias Nobel prize in physics
  • "As we survey all the evidence, the thought insistently arises that some supernatural Agency must be involved.

    George Greenstein astronomer
  • "If the Universe had not been made with the most exacting precision we could never have come into existence. It is my view that these circumstances indicate the universe was created for man to live in."

    John O'Keefe astronomer at NASA
  • "It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design."

    Antony Flew Professor of Philosophy, former atheist, author, and debater
  • "A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question."

    Fred Hoyle British astrophysicist
  • "I find it quite improbable that such order came out of chaos. There has to be some organizing principle. God to me is a mystery but is the explanation for the miracle of existence, why there is something instead of nothing."
