Сэр Фред Хойл — известный британский астроном и космолог, автор нескольких научно-фантастических романов.


„Космос от нас совсем не так далеко, как кажется — всего в часе езды, если ваша машина способна ехать вверх.“

„Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.“


„When I was young, the old regarded me as an outrageous young fellow, and now that I'm old the young regard me as an outrageous old fellow.“

„A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing 747, dismembered and in disarray. A whirlwind happens to blow through the yard. What is the chance that after its passage a fully assembled 747, ready to fly, will be found standing there? So small as to be negligible, even if a tornado were to blow through enough junkyards to fill the whole Universe.“ The Intelligent Universe: A New View of Creation and Evolution

„Life cannot have had a random beginning... The trouble is that there are about 2000 enzymes, and the chance of obtaining them all in a random trial is only one part in 10^40,000, an outrageously small probability that could not be faced even if the whole universe consisted of organic soup.“ Evolution from Space

„There is a coherent plan to the universe, though I don't know what it's a plan for.“

„Once we see, however, that the probability of life originating at random is so utterly miniscule as to make it absurd, it becomes sensible to think that the favorable properties of physics on which life depends are in every respect deliberate.... It is therefore almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect... higher intelligences... even to the limit of God... such a theory is so obvious that one wonders why it is not widely accepted as being self-evident. The reasons are psychological rather than scientific.“ Evolution from Space

„I am an atheist, but as far as blowing up the world in a nuclear war goes, I tell them not to worry.“


„It isn't the Universe that's following our logic, it's we that are constructed in accordance with the logic of the Universe. And that gives what I might call a definition of intelligent life: something that reflects the basic structure of the Universe.“ The Black Cloud

„The notion that not only the biopolymer but the operating program of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on the Earth is evidently nonsense of a high order.“

„Things are the way they are because they were the way they were.“
