On April 5th, Speculative Faith Lorehaven began to publish a series of articles called the Car-Universe without a Motor, written by Travis Perry, an author, publisher, Army Reserve officer, and hard science and fantasy fiction geek. Having been a supporter of Travis’s for a long time, and thoroughly in love with his previous set of articles about how aliens point to God, I was looking forward to this series.
Were we created? If we were created, then what for? And who’s the Creator? Does it matter? What about the solar system, the galaxy, the universe at large–did anyone create them? And if so, were they created with a purpose in mind?
One of the reasons why I am so attracted to the series is because the subject of creation, of origin, of the beginning is what interested me in apologetics. Our origins matter. Not just the origins of humanity, but of animal, plant, and other biological and living elements of our world. Over time, I’ve noticed that as our understanding increases, so does our appreciation for the complexity of a reality with a definite purpose in mind. See, the universe is designed for discovery, for wonder, for exploration. Is this universe, then, simply a car without a motor? A facade of design but not really?
Are we passengers in a car without a motor or are we in a car that’s going somewhere with a destination in mind? There’s so much to delve into so join me as I chat with Travis Perry.at 2 pm Eastern.
