Evolution: a scientific view (Part 2)

(Continued from previous post)

Those who argue that the earth is billions of years old (instead of the approximately 6,000 years that the Bible teaches) would be interested to know that the earth's magnetic field is depleting at a steady rate. If the earth were indeed billions of years old the magnetic field would have been too strong to sustain life. And if it was not too strong at the time when life on earth supposedly began, by now it would have ceased to exist.


The final point I would like to make concerning evolution is this: It defies what has come to be known as the argument of Design, or Intelligent Design. If you were walking through the woods and you came upon a clearing in which was a neat pile of ashes still smoldering in a small circle, what would be the logical conclusion? Surely not that the wind blew several logs into a circular pile which the lightening then struck causing it to burst into flames. You would know that someone placed those logs together on that pile and lit them with a lighter or a match. That fire was intentional. Similarly, if you were walking down the street and you glanced down a saw a watch with its polished gold sectioned band and the tiny little screws holding it together and each perfectly crafted gear working together to produce the rhythmic tick-tock that keeps the proper time, you would know that there had been a designer. All the time and all the chance in the world could not have produced that perfectly crafted watch and then set it into motion.


As complicated and complex and intricate as that watch is, how much more intricate and complex are we as human beings. The deeper science delves into our cellular structure, the more complex our bodies prove to be.


I present to you that we were created with intention, with purpose and with great care by one Master Creator. You are not a cosmic accident. You are a person with an individual personality, intelligence, and a soul. When you view yourself in that way-as a person who was created with love-you begin to realize that that only logical response is to want to know more about the Creator who created you.


And that's why He gave us His Word. In it is not only the revelation of who He is, but also of who we are in Him. :)

So do your own research. Don’t simply take my word for it, but find it out for yourself. And may God bless your efforts and confirm to you what He says in His Word:


Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…


Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
