The Evidence of Creation
"All the world is an utterance of the Almighty. Its countless beauties, its exquisite adaptations, all speak to you of Him." ~ Phillip Brooks~
All of nature abounds with magnificent visual beauty. Overwhelmingly strong proofs of intelligent and benevolent design by a master creator lie all around us. Where did all of this visual beauty come from, and why did it develop? I believe it was created by God, and was given to mankind to point us in His direction. The apostle Paul wrote in the first chapter of Romans, "that since the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen." In other words, that which we can clearly see with our own eyes, should be proof enough for the existence of God. So again, I shall ask the question to all who read this. "Where will YOU look for God?""But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
or let the fish of the sea inform you." ~Job 12:7-8~
Let me cite just one example from among the many in each of these four categories. I hope that each of these will begin to convince the reader that, "in His hand is the life of all creation."
In the animal kingdom, the cheetah is a large cat with a long tail and slender legs. It is the fastest animal known for running short distances, maxing out at incredible speeds of 70-80 mph.
In the autumn, the tiny artic tern leaves its nesting grounds in the Arctic Circle, and migrates to the opposite end of the earth, covering an amazing distance of 22,000 miles round trip, in its flight.
The earth is positioned at just the right distance from the sun, so that we receive exactly the proper amount of heat and light to support all life on our planet. All the other planets are either too close to the sun, or too far away to support any life. Any change in the rate of rotation of the earth would make life impossible. For example, if the earth were to rotate
at one-tenth of its present rate, all plant life would either be burned to a crisp during the day or frozen at night.
Facing overwhelming odds, the Pacific salmon leaves its home in the ocean, to return to its place of birth during its amazing migration. After hundreds of miles and many obstacles, they locate the "EXACT" area of gravel in the riverbed where they were hatched, to deposit their eggs and continue the circle of life, and then float downstream to die.
With such an incredible amount of evidence displayed in the animal and plant kingdom, the earth sciences, and the universe itself, the origin of life really comes down to two realms of belief--an accidental biological evolution, or a special creation by design. You cannot get past the vast amount of evidence, but you can choose to deny the truth. I pray that you will accept the truth, and allow it to transform your life.
