alphabetical list of those comments)

At the 1998 Science and the Spiritual Quest conference at University of California at Berkeley, funded by the Templeton Foundation, more than 20 scientists, including a physics.Nobel.laureate, testified that science either led them to God or was not an obstacle to faith. Science and the spiritual quest are just ways of interpreting the universe both physical and invisible.

Richard Dawkins, Department of Zoology, Oxford University, UK,.The Blind Watchmaker, W.W. Norton, London, England.."There is nothing inherently progressive about evolution."

The progress of evolution is inversely.proportional to the spreading of its theory among intelligent people.

Dawkins also points out that our genes have an intelligence in them that was created. ...New Scientist Magazine.(newscientist.com), July, 2000, page 52. All cells are intelligent.

The Extended Phenotype.(1999), Cox and Wyman, Reading, Berkshire, UK, chapter 3, page 30,."I think all evolutionists agree that it is virtually impossible to do a better job than an organism is doing in its present environment.".(too bad the biotech industry doesn't believe that)

'The necessity of Darwinism',.New Scientist, vol. 94, April 15, 1982, p.130."The more statistically.improbable a thing is, the less can we believe.('the less can we believe' means he wants us to be open for belief of some of it, perhaps referring to the stuff that doesn't make sense and would be hard to accept as worthy of belief; so where is he leading us to?).that it.(referring to this 'statistically improbable thing').just happened by blind chance.(so, this part, he is saying, is statistically probable as it wasn't based on blind chance or, to put it another way, this improbable thing isn't based on blind chance or would take a big stretch of imagination to believe it just happened by a thing called blind chance).

"Superficially the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer.(a smart choice). The answer, Darwin's answer, is by gradual step by step transformations from simple beginnings.(here he is into ethereality), from primordial entities.(our assumed to be forefathers such as australopithecus afarensis, etc.).sufficiently simple to have come into existence by chance.(his thinking is that the vast complexity of life is by chance; what appears as simple is nowhere near simple when it comes to life; the most complicated robot is simple when comparing one with a human).

"Each successive change.(here assuming changes were a result of evolution).in the gradual evolutionary process was simple enough.(what is 'successively simple enough'?; is forming just one protein molecule simple enough?), relative to its predecessor.(so, he is saying, that earlier it wasn't that simple, but became simpler through successive stages), to have arisen by chance.(so, the simpler it is the more chance it has, really? I guess then not much chance for the incredible complexity of the cell). But the whole sequence of cumulative steps constitutes anything but a chance process.(all these successive stages which, remember, were simpler, were still too complex to have arisen by chance), when you consider the complexity of the final end product relative to the original starting point. The cumulative process is directed by nonrandom survival.(now we see evolution's mysterious god behind it, calling the shots in a process directed by this god of 'nonrandom survival' toward an increasingly complex being, ending of course, with man; if it's 'non random, then there's intelligence, but really, even randomness, though it may appear that way on the surface, underneath there is mathmatical pattern; it's just that we don't at this time understand such amazing complexity designed and implemented by Creator-God which evolution refers to as the misnomer 'nonrandom survival'; looks like a switcheroo to me swinging allegiance to evolution's god). The purpose of this chapter is to demonstrate the power of this cumulative selection as a fundamentally nonrandom process.".

Hey, our civilization is built upon much 'unsaneness'. Thankfully some people like Dawkins are at least thinking about things, which helps the rest of us hrough the collective consciousness. We are all one.

Dean L. Overman, Washington lawyer, Mensa Society member and corporate advisor to Vice-presidents Nelson Rockefeller and Walter Mondale, author of.A Case Against Accident And Self Organization, calculates the mathematical probability of life emerging by accident as.nil:."The mathematical calculations are overwhelming against accidental processes using the first form of living matter."

Overman states that the laws of physics and chemistry together cannot account for the incredible complexity of genetic information stored within the simplest form of life, E. coli. He states that particle.astrophysics show there had to be extraordinary fine tuning at the beginning of the universe for life to continue. The slightest variation would have doomed life from the start. He concludes that if life transcends the laws of physics and chemistry, then the cause of life is more than a physical thing and is in fact a Person itself.(Creator-God). And, Stephen Wolfram has something to say about that.

Lynn Margulis is Distinguished University Professor of Biology in the Department of Geosciences in the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and has been a member of the National Academy of Sciences since 1983.

Professor Margulis says that history will judge neo-Darwinism as "a minor twentieth century religious sect within the sprawling religious persuasion of Anglo Saxon.(English nationality or descent).biology".

She challenges biologists to have a single unambiguous example of the formation of a new species by the accumulations of mutations

Her challenge goes unmet. Professor Margulis states."neo Darwinism which insists on the slow accrual of mutations, is in a complete funk".

Stephen Hawking,.A Brief History of Time.(1988), commenting on unraveling the cosmos:."If we find the answer.(to the question of why it is that we and the Universe exist; and the answer is), it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason, for we would then know the mind of God...The odds against a Universe like ours energizing out of something like the Big Bang are enormous. I think there are clearly religious implications...If the Universe is completely self-contained, with no singularities or boundaries and completely described by a unified theory, that has profound.implications for the role of God as Creator...There may be only one or a small number of complete unified theories, such as the heterotic string theory, that are self-consistent and allow the existence of structures as complicated as human beings who can invest into the laws of the Universe and ask about the nature of God.".More.
   Stephen acknowledges the fallacy of creation out of nothing, page 110. Here Stephen comments on God and mathematics.
   There was never nothing except the nothingness. Always was God. Stephen Hawking's own pages: hawking.org.uk
   The Calgary Herald.(calgaryherald.com), January 6, 2000, Stephen Hawking."Earth is by far the most favored planet in the solar system....By far the most complex systems we have are our own bodies."
   On God creating, Stephen said that before the Big Bang there was no such thing as time and since God needs time for creating, He couldn't have created the universe, because time would have to be essential for this work. Obviously Stephen isn't adept on this question:.Mark 9:23 "Emmanuel said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes." Mark 10:27 "...for with God all things are possible.".But, the Creator is beyond time and space.
   "All the evidence shows that god was actually quite a gambler
and the universe is a great casino, where dice are thrown and
roulette wheels spin on every occasion. Then we shall...be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason, for then we would know the mind of God.".This was Einstein's quest as well.
