Press Release: Brendan Roberts
Brendan Roberts, author of >God: Fact or Fiction?: Exploring the Relationship of Science Religion and the Origin of Life" will release the second edition of the controversial book in 2010. Using the spectacular Big Bang Theory, Natural Selection, astronomy, biochemistry, archaeology, Intelligent Design, philosophy, miracles, and theology he weaves compelling evidence for the existence of a Creator.
Even atheistic philosophers are being persuaded by the colossal amount of evidence shown through the Intelligent Design debate which is a hot topic in the US. Brendan illustrates how one such philosopher has converted to a deist position and another holds that Intelligent Design should be taught in schools but impartially.
Brendan quotes the astronomer, Sir Fred Hoyle regarding the possibility of the universe coming to exist by chance, like lining up 1050 blind people, giving them all a scrambled Rubik’s cube and finding they solve it at the same moment.
In fact, few realise that the principles of Natural Selection predate Darwin to ancient Greece. But Brendan does not only explore evolution and thus neo-Darwinism but also the distinctness of human beings from the possible ape ancestors.
Humans are unique, rational creatures, able to create distinct signs pointing out that their atheism is probably defunct. If one claims there is probably no God, the door is left open to claim that there is probably a God. Humans have abstract thought and are self-conscious, can enhance and even transcend our natural environment as we can fly even to other planets. Moreover humans have a love for the truth, first able to recognise it – or else science would be meaningless; and also a self-giving love, able to truly love others, including our enemies, at times without any catches and others with great cost or suffering. We also have a unique wonder of life and creation; we ponder our own existence.
