Designed

bigfoot

I enjoy watching those television shows that search for Bigfoot. The shows are basically all the same. They interview people who say they have seen such a creature. They examine alleged physical evidence, such as tracks and hair samples. They take a look at film footage and still photos that depict big, hairy beasts. Then the show ends by saying, “We still can’t prove anything.”

On one such show, a Bigfoot enthusiast leading a film crew through a wooded area pointed excitedly to a couple of small trees that were leaning up against a bigger tree, forming a triangle. This expert investigator insisted that the formation had to have been constructed by a strong, intelligent creature.

I wasn’t impressed. I have seen similar configurations in the woods, and decided that the two trees could have randomly fallen together.

What does impress me is the intricate design of the universe. It amazes me to see the wide variety of life on earth and the complex systems that are necessary for life to exist in each individual creature.

Yet some people will insist that the universe wasn’t designed, that it was formed by a series of wildly fortunate random occurrences. This seems a bit far-fetched.

I can’t examine creation without being aware of a Creator.

Can you?

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”—Romans 1:20.
