Geological and astronomical observations and extrapolation of "natural"
laws all point to a beginning. Also, many Scripture passages assert that
God created everything. Because the universe is created and because we
were created to rule over it, it should be comprehensible. If "natural"
laws are constantly changing, or are regularly set aside, I don't think we
can do science. However, we can do science.
