Order in the universe

As scientists continue to find more order in the universe, the one question they cannot answer is ‘why’. Is it simply the way our universe is structured, or is there a creator behind the order? Stephen Hawking just declared that God did not create the universe. But other prominent scientists like Dr. Francis Collins, leader of the project which decoded the human genome, are not so sure. A recent blog by Professor Matt J. Rossano warns against allowing ideology to interfere with the exploration, if “…we stop asking questions out of fear that God might be the answer or we stop out of fear that God might not be the answer. Just keep asking questions and follow honestly where the argument leads.”

Food for thought.

“Order is never observed; it is disorder that attracts attention because it is awkward and intrusive.”  –Eliphas Levi
