Looking Closer for Design

  • Question 01
    Is it true that if the Universe has design, it then demands an intelligent Designer? Why or why not?
  • Question 02
    Paul Davies said that it looks as if a “super-intellect has been monkeying with the physics.” What does Davies mean by this and how would you respond to him?
  • Question 03
    What is a Goldilocks zone? What does this have to do with design in the Universe?
  • Question 04
    Scripture

    Isaiah 45:18

    18 For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens (he is God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it; he did not create it empty, he formed it to be inhabited!): “I am the Lord, and there is no other.

    How does Isaiah 45:18 mesh with the Goldilocks principle and the design of the Universe?
  • Question 05
    Scripture

    Hebrews 3:4

    4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.

    How does this verse correspond to your life experiences, and how does it apply to a discussion of design?
  • Question 06
    How can prosthetic limbs help us understand the fact that the origin of the Universe demands an intelligent Designer?
  • Question 07
    DNA is an example of a complex coded language. What does that say about the origin of DNA?
  • Question 08
    The current atheistic theory for the origin of the Universe is that a huge explosion called the Big Bang brought all that we see into existence. What problems does the fact that there is intricate design in the Universe pose for this theory?
