Over the last few months I trawled MyNews24, reading many opinion pieces and comments relating to Christianity. Oh let’s be honest the buzz is the on-going on-line debate between evolutionists – and themselves really – regarding the whole creation thing.
Admittedly I’m no scientist – neither are the vast majority of zealots rallying under the Darwinian banner – but I can observe, and relate, that which is patently obvious to all. The Query of Evolution begs response; below is an answer, well three answers, simple enough for my kids to grasp I hope:
Cast your Gaze Skyward
The Good Book says The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. The splendour of the universe, its grandeur and majesty solicits consideration regarding its order; just explore the immense complexities of the human eye; or the improbable intricacies of a single celled organism. Intelligent design, like proverbial breadcrumbs, point to a divine architect, and are strewn within plain sight, evident to all. To deny this is to shut your ears as all creation around you screams of the awesome greatness of its Creator.
Cast your Gaze Causeward
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Ever wonder why there is something rather than nothing at all? Out of nothing, nothing comes; yet all around us we can plainly observe all kinds of something. Everything we see is an effect of a cause. An impersonal, meaningless and purposeless nothing could not have formed beings so brimming with personality, obsessed with meaning and bent on purpose. Only the most devoted or hoodwinked follower could be duped into placing their faith in ‘evolved out of nothing’ rather than ‘created by something’.
Cast your Gaze Inward
In the image of God made he man. Why is it that the awareness of right and wrong dwells within your being? And it’s not just you, all humanity has a shared imprint of this knowledge stamped within them; it transcends you and me, humanity even, and universal laws require a universal lawgiver. To deny that you’ve been created and bear the mark of the divine crafter within you is to turn a blind eye to the bright florescent signboard blinking within your soul.
“What I’m trying to say is there are evidences for the existence of God, rational and empirical, you’ve just got to look. While I cannot discount the presence of faith in my life and the need for faith in yours I wish you to know that a Christian’s belief in a creator is not a blind leap into the unknown but a rational walk along a pathway well lit by faith.”
