There are methods to treat the validity of the theory that a God exists and created this universe.

One such method is the use of **mathematics**. Oxford University Professor of Mathematics John Lennox quotes renowned Oxford University mathematical physicist Roger Penrose:

“Try to imagine phase space… of the entire universe. Each point in this phase space represents a different possible way that the universe might have started off. We are to picture the Creator, armed with a ‘pin’ — which is to be placed at some point in phase space… Each different positioning of the pin provides a different universe.

Now the accuracy that is needed for the Creator’s aim depends on the entropy of the universe that is thereby created. It would be relatively ‘easy’ to produce a high entropy universe, since then there would be a large volume of the phase space available for the pin to hit.

But in order to start off the universe in a state of low entropy — so that there will indeed be a second law of thermodynamics — the Creator must aim for a much tinier volume of the phase space. How tiny would this region be, in order that a universe closely resembling the one in which we actually live would be the result?”

Lennox goes on to cite Penrose’s answer:

“His calculations lead him to the remarkable conclusion that the ‘Creator’s aim’ must have been accurate to 1 part in 10 to the power of 10 to the power or 123, that is 1 followed by 10 to the 123rd power zeros.”

As Penrose puts it, that is a *“number which it would be impossible to write out in the usual decimal way, because even if you were able to put a zero on every particle in the universe, there would not even be enough particles to do the job.”*

And the only alternative to the universe arising from chance is for it to have arisen deliberately. **Deliberate action requires a conscious creator.**

Argument from personal incredulity fails. Even if the logic were sound the presumption is that a very big number can not exist. Well at the moment it would appear that the Universe came into being as a quantum event (ten a hundred or a thousand years from now we may look back on this idea and laugh) calculate the number of quanta in the universe and you'll find it is almost infinity larger than the number of particles, so the maths you propose fails too. In addition there is a presumption that there is a 'creator', this is an example of begging the question.

So your proposal stands on three logical fallacies and they stand on yet another, the argument from authority.

John Lennox is also a well known Christian apologist who is riddled with confirmation bias, when it comes to gods he is no scientist as he ignores the basic unfalsifiability of the 'god hypothesis'.

Thank you for providing such cogent evidence that creationism is just wishful thinking with no evidence to support its claims.

If future please do not post the work of creationists and apologists in the Science area of the forum but here in Creationism/Intelligent Design area of the forum.
