“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
God created us in His image and He created us according to His wonderful plan. God created man fully formed and He created him in one day, not gradually over millions of years of progressive evolution. The concept that a slow, progressive evolution could produce complex organisms such as the human body does not hold water. It is just not possible. It would be at least 40 different stages of evolution required to form the eye. What possible benefit could there be for the first 39 stages. The mathematician D.S. Ulam argues it was highly improbable for the eye to evolve by the accumulation of small mutations because the number of mutations must be so large and time available was not nearly long enough for them to appear. “To suppose that such a random event could reconstruct even a single complex organ like a liver or kidney is about as reasonable as to suppose that an improved watch can be designed by throwing an old one against the wall.” (Johnson) The world says that we must use reason to see if things are true. Think about the issue of evolution or creation. Which is more reasonable? A God that made us in His image and gave us such a complex body or that we were formed by chance. I don’t believe that there is any doubt about which is more reasonable. God’s plan is perfect.
“A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God.” (Ravi Zacharias)
