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

20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Have you ever snorkeled in the crystal clear waters of Hawaii? It's breathtaking, even under the water. It's truly breathtaking if you have eyes to see and a brain that works, that is. Otherwise you will look at the bright yellow fish with their bright blue spots, as they go about their daily routine of looking for food, then looking for a mate, so that they can reproduce and bring forth after their own kind, and not think at all.

But if you think deeply while under the shallow waters you will see design everywhere, from each fish with its amazing colors, to its tiny quivering fins, to its perfectly formed eyes, its mouth, tail and gills.

If it evolved from some sort of primitive life form, did the primitive life-form have lungs, a heart and eyes, when it was in this primitive form? If it did, it wasn't primitive. If it didn't, how did it see, and live, and eat? If it was doing okay as a heartless, bloodless, and blind life form, why and how did it evolve a heart, blood and eyes? And how do you know this to be true?

And why are there hundreds of thousands of other amazing fish with two eyes, one heart, blood, a mouth, stomach, fins and a tail? Why and how did they all evolve from a primitive life source into what we see today? Why is it that all this life in the ocean is mature, in our time? Why don't we see semi-evolved fish with eyes that don't yet see or fins that don't direct or gills that don't yet grab the necessities of life out of the waters that came to be because of a big bang in space?

And when you give your pat answers, ask yourself how you know all this, and why you would believe such crazy musings of the imagination? The Bible will tell you why, in the book of Romans. It’s in chapter one, if you have a mind to read it.
