"Logically, if there is no God, matter had to be present before the Big Bang or there would have been nothing there to go BOOM! (...) everyone believes in something eternal by faith." [Jobe Martin]
"Belief in a mega-explosion that ultimately results in order and regularity and predictability and beauty and music and emotions (such as love) appers to me to demand a huge volume of faith." [Idem]
"If it's all just a chaotic assemblage, there's no reason to expect any rationality out there. But, if in fact, it is the product of a mind, then you can go out and science becomes this enormous, wonderful, puzzle-solving project, in which you can expect to find rationality and beauty and comprehensibility, right at the foundation of things." [Paul A. Nelson]
"If it could be demonstrade that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, sucessive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down" [Charles Darwin]
