Only educated atheists, Modern Astrophysics has proven the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt.?
Newton's Third Law of Motion states "For every action there is equal and opposite reaction." Every action in the universe was caused by a prior equal and opposite reaction.
If we logically follow each and every action and reaction back to the beginning then logically there has to be a first action without a prior equal and opposite reaction. Modern astrophysicists call this event the Big Bang.
This first action was completely independent of outside forces. This action was God, the un-caused cause, creating the universe. This proof also fulfills the principle of Occam's Razor.
By the way, it was Georges Lemaître (1894–1966), a Belgian Catholic priest and professor of physics and astronomy, who proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Lem…
A universe in which life has a chance to exist can only happen in where a couple of dozen universal constants coincide, including:
* Minimum interval of space
* Minimum unit of time
* Planck's Constant
* Maximum velocity
* Gravitational Attraction Constant
* Weak Force Coupling Constant
* Strong Nuclear Force Coupling Constant
* Rest Mass of a Proton
* Rest Mass of an Electron
* Electron or Proton Unit Charge
* Minimum Mass of the Universe
* Total Visible Rest Mass
* Boltzmann's Constant
* Hubble Constant
* Cosmological Constant
* Cosmic Proton/Photon Ratio
* Permittivity of Free Space
* Electromagnetic Fine-Structure Constant
* Weak Fine-Structure Constant
* Gravitational Fine-Structure Constant
A couple of percent difference in any one of these constants would make the universe completely uninhabitable. Roger Penrose, a peer of Hawking, calculated that the chance of a universe capable of supporting life as we know it as one part in 10 raised to the power of 10 raised to the power of 123.
This fine tuning of the universe, while not an absolute proof of God, can be used to help prove the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt (which is my claim).
