This is a work that challenges the modern scientific world-view that nothing of any order producing significance created the ordered sum of everything. Some, however, seem to think that when they discover the means by which something came into existence this is one less thing we need God to explain, until we get to that point when we can conclude that nothing produced the ordered sum of everything. The fact is that for things to be investigated intelligently they first have to be ordered intelligently.

Moreover, a living being needs to be explained in terms of a living life-producing cause, a cause that can explain all that we predicate of the life-defining nature of their existence. We can see the origin, meaning and purpose of something in that which it has been ordered to be. Therefore, it must be dangerously naïve for scientists to suppose that living beings were ordered intelligently to reason intelligently by means that has nothing to do with intelligence and that there is no fool so foolish, as he who thinks they can be wiser than their creator.

And as we have been created to be moral beings our creator must of logical necessity be a moral being who has the ability create this ineffable life-generating effect in us, and this in turn reveals something of His purpose in creating us. To claim that all that exists has nothing to do with an intelligent and sufficient cause breaks all the laws of logic and takes us into the domain of farce and us as fools, and all to avoid that we are answerable our maker who created us moral beings.
