Who's Hugh and Why?
Contrary to Dawkins, not all intelligent, sane people believe evolution is a firmly established scientific fact (sorry Rich, even when I quote you I can't stoop to your level of vitriol). Hugh Ross would be one such gifted, informed Christian mind. Hugh's story is a fascinating journey from science to God. As a high school student with an insatiable curiosity about the ordered universe, Hugh searched the options of mankind's origin and landed in the hands of an all powerful, personal designer!
Here's a quote from Hugh's web-page you can find at:
Hugh Ross' Testimony -- My Search for Truth
"Prompted by curiosity, he studied the world's religions and "holy books" and found only one that proved scientifically and historically accurate: the Bible. Hugh started at religious "ground zero" and through scientific and historical reality-testing became convinced that the Bible is truly the Word of God! He then observed, with amazement, the impact of describing for people the process by which he came to personal faith in Jesus Christ."
Some may be wondering "How can science actually lead people to Christ?" Isn't it the aim of science to disprove God or at least "cure humanity of the disease of believing in him" (Dawkins)? But Hugh himself a perfect example of how people can be drawn to faith in Christ through their seeking minds. If we can boldly venture into the public conversation about origins we'll have a hearing with thinking people everwhere who are curious about dimensions of life and meaning that science points to beyond itself.
