Having been an atheist and arguing daily with Christians and Jews on my radio program more than 50 years ago, I understand why atheists and agnostics don’t believe in God, and therefore don’t believe in Creation. However, unbelievers are having a tough time sticking to their unbelief if they want to stay true to the ideals of “free thinking.”
Behold The Light
Freethought is a philosophy that a person should form their belief system on the basis of science, reason and logic. Freethinkers do not hold to any beliefs based on tradition or dogma – unless it’s their own. The problem they’re having is that science, reason and logic are falling more in line with theism than atheism these days. It was new information about scientific research that first caused me to question the validity of my disbelief 50 years ago, but the scientific support for Creationism and Intelligent Design is much greater now.
This is important to note here, because if atheists are right and there is no God, then there is no Deep Magic – no Song of the Supernatural. However, if they are not right – they are wrong in their conclusions. There is a God – there is Deep Magic – and there is a Song of the Supernatural.
God, in His Magnificent Genius, knew the day would come when the explorations of men would uncover the effects of His Deep Magic – most of the discoveries occurring within the past 100 years – and a great bulk of them during the last 100 years.
Scientists used to embrace the idea of a static universe that was eternal and never changing. That was before scientists like Albert Einstein, Arthur Eddington, Willem de Sitter, and Edwin Hubble made some of their many discoveries about the universe. Einstein developed his famous Theory of Special and General Relativity in the early 1900s. His calculations revealed a definite beginning to the universe – which meant a beginning to time, space, and matter. British cosmologist Arthur Eddington confirmed Einstein’s theory several years later. Dutch astronomer Willem de Sitter discovered that Einstein’s theory required the universe to be expanding, rather than static. American astronomer Edwin Hubble observed that expansion while viewing galaxies through a large telescope in the late 1920s. Einstein also looked through the same telescope and verified that the universe was expanding.
While the focus of this book is Deep Magic and the Supernatural – and not specifically the study of natural sciences – it is important to know that scientific discoveries from the last 100+ years point to what the Bible has stated clearly for thousands of years – the universe had a beginning.
The Cosmological Argument is important to understand in relation to the belief that universe had a beginning. The argument is that everything that had a beginning had a cause; the universe had a beginning, therefore the universe had a cause. The argument that everything that had a beginning had a cause is the Law of Causality – a foundational principle of science. Now that science has proof that the universe had a beginning, the Law of Causality makes it clear that the universe had a cause. That means there is a First Cause outside of time, space and matter. I believe God is that First Cause.
Another important argument for us to understand about Creation is the Teleological Argument – also known as the Argument From Design. The Teleological Argument is based on the fact that every design has a designer, the universe has a complex design, therefore, the universe has a complex Designer.
If you’re interested in learning more, you can research the following:

- The Anthropic Principle
- The Law of Causality
- Einstein’s Theory of Special and General Relativity
- The Laws of Thermodynamics
- The Hubble Law (Expanding Universe)
- Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
- Great Galaxy Seeds (discoveries from NASA’s COBE Mission)
As you study these scientific laws, principles, arguments and discoveries, remember that what makes these true is the Deep Magic of a Supernatural, Almighty God.
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever. Deuteronomy 29:29
