Genesis on Trial (Continued)

Genesis on Trial (Continued) – Ray Comfort


14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Do you ever wonder why we have 24 hours in a day, and 365 days in a year? Why is our time "divided" into days and into years? Who started such a numbering process, and upon what is it based?

We know that different civilizations numbered their days, but the reason for the 24 hour numbering is that it takes the earth 24 hours to spin on its axis. It has a 24-hour rotation.

And why is it that it takes 365 days for the earth to rotate around the sun? And while it is orbiting the sun, why does the earth consistently turn around and give us day and night with such incredible and predictable precision? Atheists don't know. They simply believe that evolution-did-it. Of course, evolution doesn't "think." They know that. It just happened.


 


The amazing order and precision happened because of a causeless bang in space that happened for no reason with no preexisting materials, billions of years ago. So they believe.


 


20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Have you ever snorkeled in the crystal clear waters of Hawaii? It's breathtaking, even under the water. It's truly breathtaking if you have eyes to see and a brain that works, that is. Otherwise you will look at the bright yellow fish with their bright blue spots, as they go about their daily routine of looking for food, then looking for a mate, so that they can reproduce and bring forth after their own kind, and not think at all.

But if you think deeply while under the shallow waters you will see design everywhere, from each fish with its amazing colors, to its tiny quivering fins, to its perfectly formed eyes, its mouth, tail and gills.


If it evolved from some sort of primitive life form, did the primitive life-form have lungs, a heart and eyes, when it was in this primitive form? If it did, it wasn't primitive. If it didn't, how did it see, and live, and eat? If it was doing okay as a heartless, bloodless, and blind life form, why and how did it evolve a heart, blood and eyes? And how do you know this to be true?

And why are there hundreds of thousands of other amazing fish with two eyes, one heart, blood, a mouth, stomach, fins and a tail? Why and how did they all evolve from a primitive life source into what we see today? Why is it that all this life in the ocean is mature, in our time? Why don't we see semi-evolved fish with eyes that don't yet see or fins that don't direct or gills that don't yet grab the necessities of life out of the waters that came to be because of a big bang in space?

And when you give your pat answers, ask yourself how you know all this, and why you would believe such crazy musings of the imagination? The Bible will tell you why, in the book of Romans. It's in chapter one, if you have a mind to read it.


 


21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Have you ever watched a whale playing in the ocean? It jumps high out of the water; it twists, it turns and sends a geyser into the heavens, and seems to be having a whale of a time. It's as though this big mammal loves life, and lives it to the fullest.

He's like a playful puppy, or a bird that sings in the cool of an early morning sunrise.

Look at the little fellow as he sits on a tree branch and sings his joy-filled song. Listen closely, and notice that his tune is complex. So are his feathers. They are amazingly complex. So are his wings and the muscles and nerves that move them. He can twist and turn them, so that in flight he can turn on a dime, faster than the human eye can even track him.

The Wright Brothers studied his amazing design, and they knew that it was evidence of a Designer. The atheist doesn't think so. This is because he doesn't think at all. The Bible calls him a fool. Newton rightly said atheists are senseless.

To them, the fact that both birds and fish have design and that each need male and female to continue to live, is an amazing purposeless accident. A lucky coincidence that happened billions of years ago, when nothing caused everything with a big bang...that he's not even sure really happened. This is because scientists now disagree about whether or not there was a big bang.

Whatever did or didn't happen, it resulted in the bird and fish population--that coincidentally have all matured to a point of perfect adaptive survival. Half a wing, half an eye, half a lung, or half a gill would mean death in seconds to any of these birds or fish. But somehow they survived as these necessities evolved. How lucky for them and us. Praise Nature for brilliantly making itself, even though nature, like the atheist doesn't think.
