I’ve recently read an article entitled: “Here’s why Stephen Hawking says there is no God”* the author denied to publish my humble opinion as an academic Christian physician and I’m honored to submit it to you:
“The fool has said in his heart, “[There is] no God” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good” (Psa 14 : 1).
Even if we accept that “something”or as Hawking has written “great many universes” may appear out of “nothing” which has not been proved “scientifically” yet, a sane physician can never accept that this wonderful amazing cell, which is one out of more than 35 billions in every human body, came out of nothing! A sane physician can never accept that this unbelievable harmony among those billions of cells differentiated into numerous body organs and systems came out of chance! It’s as similar to accept that a computer came all of a sudden out of nothing, yet any cell of our 35 billions cells and more is much more complex than the latest generation of our computers.
A christian physician “believes” that these living miracles of interacting cells, tissues, organs and systems called creatures whether animals or humans can only be reasoned through creation made by the Logos (the Son) in the Holy Spirit for the glory of Father. Again, a christian physician sees the cross in this lovely creation and when he/she asks agnostics or atheists why the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body and vice versa, some may honestly reply that there’s no known reason for that. For them there’s no reason but for the believers there’s always a reason, as when one sees the neural decussation for the pyramidal tract or the optic pathway, an image of the holy cross of the creator came to mind as a finger print of the divine love represented in the miracle of creation. For a Christian researcher and solely from a scientific point of view, there’s no possible explanation to justify these wonders represented in all fields of medicine as anatomy, histology, biochemistry … etc other than creation. Thus, the heart and mind of the believers will remain scientifically uncorruptable by the false claims of the corrupt scientists denying the Lord their Savior. “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him” (Col 1 : 16) “And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Rom 1 : 28).
