I agree. My life has meaning, as does my children's lives and all who come after. Who knows what great things my descendants may do one day in the future?

He means that they realized that God is real and died knowing Jesus as their Savior. I've read articles, but haven't seen the "hard proof" that Darwin did the same thing shortly before his death.

Famous Atheists,
If they were truly atheists and not just discouraged by organized religion, then their worldly wisdom got in the way of their Spiritual foundation.

Some of the greatest names in science history were staunch creationists. (Kelvin, Maxwell and Pascal are three of them.) Their belief in God is what led them to ask, "How did God do it?"
Yes this book basically spells out that there is scientific evidence of a God. The author is a leading scientist for our government. In ways it's a bit hard for me to understand because I'm into flowers, peace and love However I think you would find it a very interesting read. The author is even a Christian, whatever that means. I consider myself a Christian, but some people seem to think otherwise...
