Is a person simply avoiding the really big questions when they believe Genesis 1 and that everything was created by the God of the Bible? No, they aren’t. There are many who have degrees in all areas of science from well known universities who believe Genesis One. The facts show a Creator rather than an accident. Evolution (to me) is based on assumption and fairy tales!
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God…
‘When a predator comes close to a certain species of jellyfish, the jellyfish turns off the lights in its bell-shaped body and turns on the lights at the end of its tentacles. Then the jellyfish stretches its body as far as possible from its tentacles. As the predator approaches the lighted tentacles, the jellyfish switches off all its lights and scoots away as fast as it can. If the predator wasn’t fooled and wants to continue the chase, the jellyfish switches to its backup plan. It now turns on both the blue lights in its body and the white lights in its tentacles. When the attacker is very close, the jellyfish turns off the light in its body and takes off after detaching its still-glowing tentacles. The tentacles continue to twist and turn in the water, distracting the predator. Jellyfish are among the most “primitive” multi-celled animals, according to evolution. Yet this clever survival strategy clearly demonstrates that jellyfish are neither simple nor primitive.
Another kind of jellyfish collects in swimming colonies called siphonophores. These colonies can be up to 40 feet long and function in total darkness more than 1,500 feet beneath the ocean’s surface. When they link up, some of the jellyfish act as mouths, while others act as stomachs. Some take care of the swimming, while others cast out their tentacles to gather food. When joined, they act as one huge single creature! How did creatures capable of independent survival evolve the ability to function as part of a complex colony? Does this not demonstrate planning and design?’http://www.searchforthetruth.net/
This is an email received from Search for the Truth. It is a simple message but for some impossible for it tells us that a house requires a builder.
‘It takes a mind to build a house. A home electrical system requires the skilled labor of an electrician who has spent many years learning his trade. The plumbing requires the work of a plumber who has worked for years as an apprentice. The structure of the house requires the skilled labor of a team of carpenters. The heating system, insulation, drywall, roofing, siding, finishing, carpeting, and landscaping all require planning, skill, and intelligence before finished home results.
Each part of the human body has corresponding components. Our nervous system is far more complex than the electrical system of a house. Our blood vessels, heart, and lungs are infinitely more complex than any home heating and ventilation system. Our digestive tract is more intricately designed than any plumbing system. Our body fat insulates far more efficiently than any home insulation. Our skin is far more durable and complex than drywall, siding, paint, or carpeting.
It takes a mind to conceive, design, and build a house. How can we believe that it did not take a far superior creative intelligence to conceive and create the human body?‘http://www.searchforthetruth.net/
