Although believers and evidence exist, there remains the question: is there a God? Cold case detective J. Warner Wallace has pursued the question, applying the same procedures he used to solve cold cases.
He started this investigation into God's existence many years ago as an atheist. But even then, he had to accept something beyond the natural because he already believed the universe had a beginning before space and time.
The Beginning needs a Beginner
"It began from nothing. It didn't exist prior to the Big Bang," the author of Cold Case Christianity said of the universe. "That means you're looking for a cause that is nonspatial, nontemporal and nonmaterial because those things are not available until the Big Bang. So you're already looking for something that's extranatural—if by nature you mean what we always mean, which is space, time, matter, physics, chemistry."
Astronomer Hugh Ross, who heads up Reasons to Believe, sees God in the universe's birth.
"It has a beginning, which implies there must be a beginner who was responsible for bringing the universe into existence," the astrophysicist said.
And there's such precise design.
Wallace stated, "We have fine-tuning in the universe that's so finely tuned that the smallest variation in the universal constants, you wouldn't even have a universe in which we have life at all. Now, what are the odds of that happening on its own?"
