The God of Order and the Scientist of Confusion

The argument for the improbability of God, as advanced by Dawkins and others, seems to boil down to the following reasoning: (1) By common consent, the world is a highly improbable and complex system; (2) if God created the world he must be more complex than the world he created; therefore (3) God is less probable than the world; indeed, he is fantastically improbable; so (4) God probably doesn’t exist.

Although produced with a flourish, the argument holds no more water than a sieve. [1]

But by what logic must we accept that one highly improbable entity exists (the universe) while another highly improbable entity (God) does not exist—simply because he is too complex or organized to do so?[2]

Not only is the universe complex, more importantly we know that within the seemingly confusion there is embedded great mathematical order. Where it not so scientist would not be spending billions for the theory of everything. The very ones searching for order miss the fact that should they find it, they will only validate God.

1 Co 14:33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints…
