Do you believe in evolution and that the idea of a God who created the universe and everything in it is absolute absurdity?  Or perhaps you are one who cannot understand how anyone could believe that everything began with nothing…and then the nothing went BANG!…and so on and so on.

Well, no matter what our beliefs, we are all in for a genuine treat.  Tonight Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis will be debating Bill Nye the Science Guy at 7:00 p.m./ET.  It should prove to be VERY interesting.

I posted a link to this video in a reply I wrote to an atheist’s comment on my latest “Something to Think About” article.  It’s such a cool video that I wanted to share it with everyone who may not have read the comment.  I really don’t know how anyone could not at least question their belief in evolution after watching this? 

Comments are welcome!  Enjoy!

A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.

Have you ever heard the story of The Ugly Duckling?  It’s about a little “duckling” who was hatched in a farmyard along with other ducklings.  However, he was quite different than the rest and was horribly picked on and ostracized.  He eventually ran away and suffered months and months of very heartbreaking rejection everywhere he went.  He finally came across a flock of swans and much to his amazement – they accepted him!  While swimming with these lovely birds, he looked at this own reflection in the water and discovered that he looked just like them!  He had grown into a beautiful swan!  He was NEVER a duck, as he had believed for so long!

Some people believe that they, as humans, are nothing more than the result of a cosmic accident that happened billions of years ago; that our origins began in some primordial “soup” in which our distant ancestors just happened to sprout legs and crawl out of; and that there is absolutely no reason for our existence.  This belief is called “evolution” and it has caused a lot of confusion throughout the years.  It also makes our lives totally devoid of purpose.

How many of us have let this belief supersede our innate understanding that life could not possibly have come about by accident?  The complexity of every system in our bodies gives credence to this truth – especially since we now have the technology to peer into the very essence of a simple cell… which we now know is not simple at all. This technology was not available when these crude evolutionary theories came about.

It’s interesting that Charles Darwin, who is known as the father of evolution, always referred to evolution as a “theory.”  He never claimed it as fact, as some are doing today.  He even laid down a criterion for testing it in which he stated:

“If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. But I can find out no such case.” (The Origin of Species)

Darwin wrote this in 1859 – over 150 years before the scientific advancements of today.  Hence, there is absolutely no excuse for anyone to continue believing this way today.  We know better.  Even many scientists have denounced this theory.  But some choose to stubbornly ignore the facts. (Romans 1:19-22)

Just as the ugly duckling realized that he was not a duck at all but a beautiful swan, we need to realize that we are not just an accidental “thing” that crawled out of the slime billions of years ago.  We are human beings made in Gods image, whom He created for a purpose.  We just have to find out what that purpose is.  And God is the only one who can reveal it to us.  All we need to do is ask.  (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

Just something to think about…

Nature is the Art of God

“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.” ~ Colossians 1:16

Sometimes when I’m driving at sunrise or at sunset, I marvel at how beautiful the sky is during these times.  I say to myself, “I’ll bet there’s never been a sunrise or sunset exactly the same.  God’s an awesome artist!”  Of course, that’s an understatement.

When I look at the universe – the sun, moon, stars, and planets; all the beautiful galaxies with their own unique qualities; the colorful nebulae which decorate the vast expanse of space; and even our own planet, Earth, with all its wonder and beauty – I cannot understand how anyone could think that all of this came about by accident!  I mean… how can something possibly come from nothing?  This goes against the laws of science.

Even the most complex of inventions (i.e., cars, computers, even a common wristwatch) could not possibly have just come about by chance.  We all agree that these things had to have had someone design them.  So, why would anyone believe that living organisms – which are exponentially more complex than any of the objects mentioned above – came into existence without a Designer?  Logically and scientifically, this is impossible.

Just something to think about…
