Have you ever noticed the complexity in life?
And have you ever wondered how the complexity in life could have gotten that way if things started out so simply? Well, if you haven’t wondered about it, plenty of people have…including scientists, philosophers, atheists, and of course those who believe in the one, true, living, loving God of creation.
One noted (and boldly affirmed) atheist, Richard Dawkins had this to say about life: “Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.” (The Blind Watchmaker, page 1) He’s not alone in acknowledging at least “the appearance” of design. Plenty of Darwinian scientists agree with that much. After all, they have powerful microscopes. And they can see a complex design doing amazing things inside a single cell. However…
Most Darwinian scientists say no to the complexity of life affirming a designer.
It’s a matter of ignoring where the evidence appears to take you…and going, instead, where you’d prefer the answer to be. That’s not science, by the way. It’s a religion. It requires faith…and mostly a blind adherence to that faith. For example, to say even a single cell could have emerged from proteins…even if the whole world was full of proteins…is to ignore how each cell in your body is a “membrane-encased, self-reproducing, self-repairing, metabolizing” unit. Every part in one single cell had to be there from the beginning in order for the cell to function. Every part! That means it had to be completely assembled at one time by a highly intelligent assembler. It couldn’t have worked any other way.
Scientists, who deny the existence of the Creator God, have been trying for hundreds of years to show how life could have come from non-life. Yet, they’ve never been able to demonstrate how even one cell could have formed from proteins without some outside help.
I’m glad to admit how the complexity of life shows an even more complex Creator.
Knowing God is there helps me make sense of the world, the solar system, the galaxy, and the universe. I can only imagine the sense of hopelessness inside the hearts and souls of atheists. The sense of time running down and out. Life coming to an end. A black hole of nothingness in the not-too-distant future. No. Thank. You.
If you’ve been living your life as though no Creator God exists, I encourage you to look again. If you can’t bear the thought of listening to (or reading) the words of Christians, at least be willing to go where the evidence truly leads. And when it gives “the appearance of having been designed for a purpose“, stop and ask, “Hmm, I wonder if it was?” As you wonder, you’ll be using one of the strongest pieces of evidence for the complexity in life coming from an even more complex designer…your brain.
