Russian scientists certain of the existence of God
Interfax- Religion ^ | 06 October 2006, 11:06 | Interfax Anatoly Akimov

Moscow, October 6, Interfax – The existence of God has been proved by scientific methods, Academician Anatoly Akimov, director of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Physics, has stated.

‘There is God, and we can see the manifestations of His will. This is the opinion of many scientists; they not only believe in the Creator but rely on certain knowledge’, he said in an interview published by the Moskovsky komsomolets daily on Friday.

The scientist noted that in the past centuries very many physicists believed in God. Moreover, until Isaac Newton, there was no separation between science and religion; science was practiced by clergy as they were the most educated people. Newton himself studied theology and used to repeat: ‘I deduce laws of mechanics from laws of God’.

"Have you come to believe in God?" a priest asked him when he came to church. "No, I have simply realized that He cannot but exist!" the scientist answered.

I often look to science for evidence of God. I fail to understand how someone can look at the Hubbel deep field photos of space and not see God's handiwork.

I could relate to that as how a scientific mind might resolve and answer to such an enigma.

‘This does not contradict the basic tenets of the Bible.

It says in particular that God is omnipresent; He is present at every time and in every place.

We can see this is the case: the Lord has a boundless power to affect all that happens’

Russian Scientists Learn to Speak 'Dog'

February 1, 2001 Moscow, USSR

It still may be a while before they publish the first Russian-Dog dictionary, but researchers at the Moscow Zoo believe that they have translated several sounds of the Dhole, an endangered wild dog that inhabits the mountainous regions from Southern Siberia to India.

This particular species of dog has been extremely elusive and rarely encountered by humans, which makes these findings all the more significant.  The language, now known as "dholish", scientists say consists of at least 11 basic sounds, ranging from a grumble to a "biphonic yap-squeak".  Biphonic sounds are those that appear to resonate two distinct voices at once.

Dholish seems to be a highly dynamic language; the meaning of the sound depends upon the speaker's age, social status, health and living environment.  "For example", explains researcher Ilya Volodin, "a dhole male will cry a whistling call if a female is separated because of problems with her health. This same call is produced by dhole parents and young who have become separated."

Also, the same yap used by an adult dhole to recognize its father's elder status, according to researcher Elena Volodina is the same call that infant dholes use to say, "I'm hungry! Regurgitate me some food!"

These findings were based on observations and spectrograms of the conversations of nine captive dholes in the Moscow Zoo.  The full report has been accepted for publication in the Russian Zoological Journal.

That is probably a loss in the translation. There is 'The Scientific Method' and it can be practiced.

Is that similar to the American scientists who tried to show that those apes were really talking?

Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

Here's another example of the writers of Scripture having knowledge of things they had know way of knowing. How would they know that things needed to be or were being held together?

These forces (strong and weak molecular forces) scientists have been *discovering* to explain why an atom doesn't fly apart could simply be an outworking of the power of God. But there's no way for scientists to determine the source of the force, only to either detect it or conclude that it's there. So they could be actually measuring the power of God actively at work and not even recognise it. They keep asking for physical evidence for Him and it just might be staring them in the face, but they don't know it. It's just one of the limitations of science. That's where Scripture can fill in knowledge where science is lacking.

I strongly recommend The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief by Francis S. Collins.

Dr. Collins was the leader of the human genome project and through his work in decoding life's instruction manual, transformed from athiest to Christian.

Darwin himself was very religious, and if he came back today and saw what was being done in his name, I swear he'd go ballistic.
