Oxford mathematician John Lennox stars in the new science insurrection episode “Big Bang: Something Out of Nowhere?” He’s priceless as a character too: a brilliant scientist, the wish-for-Irish grandfather, who kindly enumerates facts about the universe to confuse any scientific atheist. In bonus material from the episode, Professor Lennox discusses issues including that the universe has a beginning, that it was beautifully attuned to our existence from the start, or even before it started. Also that there is more like something than nothing, a truth that the atheists Stephen Hawking, Lawrence Krauss and others have tried to smooth out others. Lennox tells here why they fail. None of this is what one would expect from a materialistic picture of reality. But a biblical one? That’s a different story.
If you haven’t already, watch episode 7 of Science Uprising, then enjoy more of Dr. Lennox, who explains why science and the universe call for a creating deity:
