The Case for the Existence of God#4, Experiencing Supernatural PhenomenaAnswers to prayerSupernatural healings and miraclesManifestation and deliverance from demons 19. The Case for CreationSix validations:#1, Evidence from Cosmology#2, Evidence from Physics#3, Evidence from Astronomy#4, Evidence of Biochemistry#5, Evidence from Biological Information#6, Evidence from Consciousness 20. The Case for Creation"Science done right, points us to God" 21. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from CosmologyInfinity cannot happen in the real world. 22. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from CosmologyConsequently, the universe cannot have aninfinite number of past events, meaning that itmust have had a beginning. 23. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from Cosmologythe universe is constantly expanding 24. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from Cosmologygoing backward in time wouldlead to a single point in timebefore which nothing existed 25. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from CosmologyThe Big Bang phenomenon points to amethodical, designed event not an accidental,chaotic explosion. 26. The Case for Creation#1, Evidence from CosmologyCan chance produce intelligence?Could accident result in purpose?Can non-life create life?Can something come from nothing?Can chaos produce order? 27. The Case for Creation#2, Evidence from PhysicsThe Anthropic Principleall the arbitrary constants in physics representprecise values needed in order for the universeto produce and sustain life 28. The Case for Creation#2, Evidence from PhysicsThe force of Gravity 29. The Case for Creation#2, Evidence from PhysicsThe Cosmological Constant 30. The Case for Creation#2, Evidence from PhysicsGravity and the cosmological constant representonly two of more than 30 parameters that mustbe precisely calibrated in order for life to exist inthe universe. 31. The Case for Creation#2, Evidence from PhysicsThe fine-tuning of the universe pointspowerfully toward an Intelligent Designer 32. The Case for Creation#3, Evidence from AstronomyThe earth is positioned is a precise safe zone inour galaxy that makes it conducive for life. Anyminor change in position, and we cannot live. 33. The Case for Creation#4, Evidence of BiochemistryThe Cell 34. The Case for Creation#4, Evidence of BiochemistryIrreducibly complex systems are strongevidence of a purposeful, intentional design byan intelligent agent. 35. The Case for Creation#5, Evidence from Biological InformationHuman body has about one hundred trillioncells20,500 kinds of proteins 36. The Case for Creation#5, Evidence from Biological InformationThe information to produce these proteins arecontained in six-feet of DNA coiled inside ourcells 37. The Case for Creation#5, Evidence from Biological Informationfor a single protein to be formed the right bondsbetween the amino acids must be formed andmust be in a specified sequence 38. The Case for Creation#5, Evidence from Biological Informationthe probability for a single protein to beproduced by chance is 1 in 10^25even a simple cell needs about 300-500 proteinmolecules 39. The Case for Creation#5, Evidence from Biological InformationThe probability of a protein molecule formingby chance is about the same as throwingscrabble letters down and generating a book.How improbable it is for evenone protein molecule to evolve! 40. The Case for Creation#6, Evidence from ConsciousnessEach of us have the same organ - the brain, buteach of us have our own mind - our ownthoughts, feelings, and beliefs about things, ourown temperament, etc. 41.
