There may be some theoretical chance that wind and rain erosion could produce the face of four presidents on the side of a mountain, but it is still far more reasonable to assume that an intelligent sculptor created Mount Rushmore.
If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are accidents- the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else’s. But if their thoughts are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents.
Random noise could never produce a Bach cantata. Random letters floating in an ocean of alphabet soup will never spell out a chapter from Moby Dick. When we hear the music, we know there was a composer. When we read coherent writing, we know there was an author. How much more does this principle apply to the detailed information contained in the DNA of every living creature?
Notice that expression, “according to its kind,” which appears twice in (Genesis 1) verse 21, twice in verse 24, three times in verse 25, and once each in verses 11 and 12. It is used every time procreation is mentioned in the Genesis account. It underscores the very truth evolution denies: that when living creatures reproduce, they can produce only creatures similar to themselves. Apes do not give birth to humans.
Honest scientists must admit that all of life had to be designed by an immensely intelligent mind. The more science looks at life, the more complex it becomes. The human brain is far more complex than NASA’s space shuttle. The brain alone is made up of at least six million functioning parts. No one would imagine that the space shuttle evolved by chance from nothing. Why should we have such a view of life itself?
The design of the universe…is very magnificent and shouldn’t be taken for granted. In fact, I believe that is why Einstein had so little use for organized religion… He must have looked at what the preachers said about God and felt that they were blaspheming. He had seen much more majesty then they had ever imagined, and they were just not talking about the real thing. My guess is that he simply felt that religions he’d run across did not have proper respect…for the author of the universe.
