The world is filled with wonder everywhere we look. Who made all of this? Did it just happen? Or is there really a God who, as the Bible says, "created the heaven and the earth"?
Can anyone really deny it? If you say there is no God, then all the wonders around you are just an accident. The billions of stars in the sky just happened to make themselves and generate their own power to keep on course. The land just happens to have topsoil without which nothing could grow. The air we breathe -- only 50 miles deep and exactly the right composition to support life -- is just another accident in the laws of physics.
Can you believe these things just happened? Isn't it more reasonable to believe that a supreme mind is behind all of this and everything that exists? Take the deposits of coal, zinc, gold and uranium. Did they get there by accident? And what prevents lakes from freezing solid, all the way down to the bottom, making it impossible for fish to survive?
Why does the earth spin at a given speed without slowing up so that we have day and night? Who tilts it so that we get seasons? No one really knows the why and how of the magnetic pulls. Or think of the sun stoking a fire just warm enough to sustain us on earth, but not hot enough to fry us or cold enough to freeze us. Who keeps the fire constant?
And what about the human body -- an intricate combination of bones, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. The human brain has far greater capacity than any computer we have ever imagined. The kidneys contain approximately 280 miles of tiny tubes, and in the course ofa day filter 185 quarts of water from the blood.
And then there is the heart, an unbelievably rugged organ: a four-chamber, four-valve pump that handles 5,000 gallons of blood a day -- almost enough to fill a railroad tank car. It supplies a circulatory system with 12,000 miles of vessels and, in the course of a lifetime, beats two and one half billion times. All the blood in your body is pumped through your heart every minute while your heart beats 100,800 times a day.
