One of the common things people of faith say to unbelievers is, “If you cannot say where the universe came from, you are forced to admit God created it.”
This is a risky strategy. To reduce risk, people of faith must halt the march of science backward into time. Science may discover the origin of the universe.
Here in Winnipeg I read anl article about a University of Alberta discovery. Scientists found fossilized trails, tiny tracks, made by some kind of slug. The importance of these imprints is they dated to 585 million years ago, 30 million years before the oldest evidence of life discovered previously. One view is life of any kind started 600 million years ago. The Alberta scientists concluded this slug may be the first form of life able to move itself.
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion, discussed the risk of assuming the origin of the universe will never be discovered. He pointed out how absurd it would have seemed to talk about man going to the moon in the not so distant past.
This is not to say fundamentalists are sitting on their hands. Their reaction to the march of discovery is to try to stop it. They want replace evolution in school curriculums with Bible-based creationism. Some state legislatures have required the inclusion of creationism in school curriculums. Their intent, I assume, is to later eliminate evolution.
So far, they have not stopped the march of science. They need to redouble their efforts.
