There seems to have been a whole lot of books published from atheists who say that since science cannot prove the existence of God, then it logically follows that God must not exist. Stephen Hawkings, noted scientist, just said that the universe created itself. Well Hello Stephen - Please explain how nothing created something! Does nothing create cars, or houses, or highways? Did your computer and its operating system just create themselves, or was there a master intelligence that created them?
We know that if we are walking on the beach and find a watch in the sand, that there must have been humans somewhere that left the watch on the beach. Similarly, if there is timing and order in the universe (24 hour days, 365.25 days in a year), then we know that this violates the law of entropy, which says that matter will seek its most disordered state (spilling a glass of water, for example).
What scientist would read a book about science written by a pope? NONE! So why should any faith-filled person read a book on theology from a scientist who knows absolutely nothing about God? That would be as dumb as reading a book on global warming written by a failed politician who made D's in science while in college!
Catholics walk by faith, not by sight, and we know that there is a God just from looking around - The water cycle, the human reproduction system, the love a mother feels for her child, the total interconnectedness of nature, etc., all prove that the world was intelligently designed. To say or think otherwise is JUST PLAIN STUPID!
