Hawking and Ellis stated in 1973 that the creation of the universe from a singularity, at its beginning, is outside of the laws of known physics.
In 1927 Georges Lemaître, a Belgian physicist (and incidentally, a Catholic priest) declared from his own studies that space is expanding spherically. He also surmised that one logical conclusion from this fact was that there had to be a starting point for the expansion, which he called the "primeval atom"
Another evolutionist joined the conversation, eager to prevent Melvyn from using that nasty “intelligence” concept again: “This is one thing that we’re always very careful of when we’re talking in the public sphere, because this idea of intelligence is very seductive”.
Science hasn't buried God, as is often claimed today by the "new atheists". On the contrary, Meyer says, in direct opposition to the statements of well-known atheist Richard Dawkins, the universe is exactly as it should be if it was designed by a "transcendent and purposive intelligence".
Regarding the assertion that the work of the Intelligent Design movement is "pseudo-science", it's interesting if not comical to note that some evolutionists are believing that life originated from somewhere else in the galaxy, and then "designed" life to begin and thrive here on earth.
