Oh lovely, gold leaf Aspen tree,
for life you can depend on me.
I’m not a treehugger so why in the world would I be talking to a tree? I’m glad you asked. Because the largest living organism on the planet depends on me (and you) for life. And that’s another beautiful reason why creation is the best explanation for how we all got here. When I say you can depend on me, I’m talking about what some scientists call “symbiotic relationships“. Those are relationships where both sides depend on each other for their very existence. It’s so cool how much you can easily observe this in our world…if you’re willing to see.
Symbiosis, not osmosis.
The Hollies had a line in one of their popular songs that said “All I need is the air that I breathe.” And if you’ve ever felt that way about anyone or anything, you can thank a tree. Of course, at the same time, the tree should thank you for exhaling. That’s because we exhale carbon dioxide, and trees (and plant life in general) need carbon dioxide to thrive. At the same time, trees, and the rest of the plant kingdom, produce oxygen after taking in carbon dioxide. See? We need plants, and they need us. So, we must have all been created at about the same time.
Still not convinced? Want another example of symbiotic relationships? OK. How about honeybees? I love honeybees…because they’re cute little creatures who stay busy all day gathering pollen from flowers just to make the sweetener for my coffee. How thoughtful.
Pollen-bearing plants need honeybees. And honeybees need those plants…and other bees. The queen bee, worker bees, and drones all need each other. If any one of them had evolved without the other, they wouldn’t have been able to survive. Creation explains and clarifies their existence. Evolution doesn’t.
You can depend on me honeybee and Aspen tree…and thee.
I’m gonna keep on sharing the story of how creation beautifully explains our existence and how everything makes so much sense. It’s all because we had a common designer. Not a common ancestor. Jesus made you. He’s logical, sensible, personal, reasonable, and loving. It makes so much more sense to believe in being designed by someone like that than simply popping up out of slime. Being designed inspires trust and hope. Mutating into existence doesn’t.
If you’ve never considered how we all got here…or if you’ve always believed life happened just by chance…I encourage you to look into it more. And if you’d rather not take the Bible’s word for it, then look at it scientifically. Not some regurgitated philosophical nonsense by fools like Richard Dawkins or Stephen Hawking. Real science. And if you do actually look into it and still disagree, write to me and tell me why.
