The incredible complexity of organic life is seen by some as evidence that life was designed by an intelligent creator.

Key Points:

  • Biologists can explain how cells work, not how organic life originated. The former is a question of laboratory tests, the latter is a thesis that is viewed as consitent with data we have, not on actual observed facts.
  • The lines aren’t as clear as some people suggest. It’s often assumed by hardcore atheists that you either believes in science or you are a fool! Some scientists are not so convinced, but feel pressured to comply to go along with accepted norms.
  • The basic building blocks of life are too complex to have arisen by chance.

Quote This:

Psalm 139:13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
