When you look around you, no matter where you live, you can see the beauty of nature. You see, the universe in which we exist, and the planet that serves us as home, are equally complex and beautiful, even perfect, in their design. They literally shout out the existence of the Designer.
Psalms 19:1-2 state exactly that fact. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.”
So many things about our home, the earth, shout out the existence of my God. Think about the earth, itself. The size is perfect. If the earth was smaller, it would be impossible to hold an atmosphere. Earth would be more like Mercury. If the earth was larger, free hydrogen would be prevalent in the atmosphere. Earth would be more like Jupiter. Earth is the only known planet, where we find a perfect atmosphere for the preservation of life. The atmosphere of our home planet is composed of the perfect mixture of gases to sustain life.
The earth is located the perfect distance from the sun to insure against freezing or burning up. A longer distance would cause us to freeze, and a closer distance would cause us to burn.
Our moon is also the perfect size and distance from the earth to provide the necessary gravitational pull to move the oceans and keep them from becoming stagnant, while keeping them from flooding across the continents.
Earth is the only object in the universe, on which we know there exists water. Water is an essential ingredient for sustaining life. The earth contains the perfect hydrological system. The salt water of the oceans evaporate, leaving the salt behind. The evaporation forms clouds, which distributes the water content as rainfall over the continents.
On top of these key universal designs, the complexity of the human brain and eyes are a subject well worth studying. Animal life and plant life are both equally complex in design in every phase.
The complexity of DNA is equally amazing. In every cell of our bodies, there exists this complex and detailed instruction code. It is equivalent to a miniature computer program. This code is a program of 3 billion letters, which tells each cell how to act. It is our cellular operational manual.
When you look at just these few things, which I have described, how could such complex designs be the result of chance? Is it even remotely possible that this is all the consequence of some chance explosion, as presented in the big bang theory? Physics tells us that explosions result in chaos, not in orderly creation.
Yet, we are bombarded with the opinions of scientists, PhDs, and educators that this grand design is simply an “accidental product of evolution.”
So, to fairly compare the big bang theory to a real life experience, let me present a similar concept. Let’s say that I stand, with you, in front of Mt. Rushmore and declare to you, and to all others within hearing distance, “Isn’t it amazing that this wall of rock has re-created the faces of 4 of our countries presidents, all produced accidently by erosion?” Would you declare me a fool? Science would.
Yet, those same scientists present their incredible theory that every bit of perfection found is the result of an accidental explosion.
Psalms 53:1 tells us “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
There is a great book, by Ray Comfort, titled “You Can Lead a Scientist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think!”
A truer title could not have been chosen to discuss atheism.
I choose to accept the reality of my Creator, being my God, not some freak explosion creating order, instead of chaos. I chose to believe that I am made in the image of my God.
Just my thoughts!
