A good reason to put your faith in God
As vast as the scientific research is, none have shown how the universe was born, why everything in the universe is in such a beautiful order and it shows that science is lacking.
The insufficiency of science shows that there is something and someone who is greater than science; God and He alone is able to create this complex and well-ordered universe.
