No, not Martin Luther King…the original Martin Luther, clergyman of Protestant Reformation fame.
Before you peg me as a pantheist, let me let me tell you why I marvel at nature. The natural laws of our universe are so complex and beautiful. From the vastness of the cosmos to the complex language of our DNA, natural laws follow order and logic. What would happen if natural laws didn’t follow any specific order or logic? It would be mass chaos! The laws of our universe are woven together in a way that ensure a smoothly-run world…naturally speaking. Remove even one of the laws…light, motion, gravity…and just watch everything unravel.
The laws of physics to mathematics to logic to chemistry are inter-related and depend on one another to work in perfect unison to sustain life in all forms. If everything in this world just haphazardly came into being, then why should we think there would be any logical, orderly principles?
Why should the universe obey laws unless there was one who set those laws into motion?
