“If I told you that this watch on my wrist was designed by a team of engineers, skillfully crafted by a team of highly trained technicians, sent to a jobber, and from there to the store where I purchased it, would you believe me?
Well, let me tell you what really happened. Millions and millions of years ago there were atoms freely floating through the universe. Cosmic winds drew them together, clustering them into various materials: silicon, crystals, metals, and other various parts. Through the random effects of chance – over millions of years, of course – these various elements were thrown together into this interesting device that now adorns my wrist…and it has been keeping pretty good time ever since!”
Any intelligent person would scoff at such a nonsensical scenario. The very notion that so complex a device as a wristwatch just happened is an insult of any rational mind. The wristwatch is obviously the result of careful, skillful design.
Isn’t it strange? We reject the notion that a watch could be the result of cosmic chance, and yet we teach our children that the wrist upon which the watch resides is the result of evolution! The sheer complexity and magnificence of the human body points to the obvious conclusion of the psalmist, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Notice, the writer said “made,” not “evolved.”
The theory of evolution is a myth. Worse still; it’s a lie. The truth is clearly stated in the first five words of the Bible, “In the beginning God created…” We are not the result of some cosmic coincidence. We are the product of intelligent design. The Word of God declares that we were created by God and in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Now that’s incredible!
