Yes! Mr. Durfee I agree wholeheartedly. WHY are scientists, in particular, so antagonistic toward religion? Do they stumble because of the 6-day creation story, without considering it might have been creative "periods"? Are they so arrogant that they can't bear the thought of an intelligent being infinitely superior to them? It is unscientific to deny something you cannot see and measure. Many things in science aren't directly observed, but rather are identified because of their affect on other things, for instance, black holes are inferred from their affects on surrounding space. Surely the evidence of a creator is the ultimate example of this. All things testify of Him.

The possibility that all of the critical variables sufficient to allow galaxies to form (which scientists generally equate with "life") could randomly pop up with the necessary values is staggeringly small. Not exactly infinitesimal, but close. It's why scientists who choose to reject an intelligent creator have basically no choice but to believe that there are an infinite number of universes -- and that we happen to be on one that has life. It seems like a convenient solution, but it comes with its own inconvenient problems. For instance, we are more likely to be computer programs inside a gigantic computer, than real humans. Sorry, agnostic astrophysicists, but that is far more wacky than the "mythology" of religion that you laugh at us for believing in.
