The findings of all sciences over the past century have, if anything, restored for deeper consideration the Catholic – Christian worldview of Creation.
‘An alternative conclusion from science, that this is a universe, perhaps one of an infinite number of universes, existing in infinite time, and governed by uncaring quantum mechanical laws, is one which is particularly cold and harsh. It essentially implies that we humans are cosmic accidents, the fruit of complete randomness. From there, impossible leaps are then required to explain how rationality can emerge from irrational randomness. How can a completely random universe, the result of pure chance, end up obeying rational laws? How is it that we can describe the universe with a few simple parameters? How can it be that our tiny human reason has eventually evolved from an initial irrational ‘soup’ of particles and energy and that it has the capacity to uncover rational laws that explain that ‘soup’? How can such a rational discipline as science emerge as the key to interpreting complete randomness? It is very hard to escape the rational conclusion that this universe is, somehow, ‘our’ universe.’ (God Exists – So What?)
