Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Genesis on Trial

21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Have you ever watched a whale playing in the ocean? It jumps high out of the water; it twists, it turns and sends a geyser into the heavens, and seems to be having a whale of a time. It's as though this big mammal loves life, and lives it to the fullest.

He's like a playful puppy, or a bird that sings in the cool of an early morning sunrise.

Look at the little fellow as he sits on a tree branch and sings his joy-filled song. Listen closely, and notice that his tune is complex. So are his feathers. They are amazingly complex. So are his wings and the muscles and nerves that move them. He can twist and turn them, so that in flight he can turn on a dime, faster than the human eye can even track him.

The Wright Brothers studied his amazing design, and they knew that it was evidence of a Designer. The atheist doesn’t think so. This is because he doesn't think at all. The Bible calls him a fool. Newton rightly said atheists are senseless.

To them, the fact that both birds and fish have design and that each need male and female to continue to live, is an amazing purposeless accident. A lucky coincidence that happened billions of years ago, when nothing caused everything with a big bang...that he's not even sure really happened. This is because scientists now disagree about whether or not there was a big bang.

Whatever did or didn't happen, it resulted in the bird and fish population--that coincidentally have all matured to a point of perfect adaptive survival. Half a wing, half an eye, half a lung, or half a gill would mean death in seconds to any of these birds or fish. But somehow they survived as these necessities evolved. How lucky for them and us. Praise Nature for brilliantly making itself, even though nature, like the atheist doesn't think.
