Review: Improbable Planet
`Improbable Planet` is a book on Creationism, Science, and Apologetics, written by author Hugh Ross. Hugh Ross is a founder and president of Reasons to Believe. (www.reasons.org) Hugh presents powerful evidence for a purpose-filled universe. Example, `one study showed that the primordial Earth must have possessed a liquid water ocean hundreds of times deeper than Earth's current oceans. Only such a huge quantity of liquid water explains why Earth today has fifty times less argon-36 in its atmosphere than does Venus. (see page 52) Could such an amount of water be proof of Noah's Ark?
The author's book `Improbable Planet` is the sequel to his book `Why the Universe Is the Way It Is`. I wish I could have read that book first it may help me understand this book better.
Even though many scientists believe Earth's life-sustaining features are just `amazing coincidences` others are astonished that a biblical worldview could be true. I do disagree with the author's view that Earth has been here over 3 billion years. I believe in a young Earth, and that the first six days are literal days, not years. Also, `I believe God Spoke` and it was so. Whereas the author speaks of a collision.
