As mentioned in the very first post of this blog, the posts share why it is reasonable to believe in the almighty but unseen Creator as described in the bible.
Is it really necessary?
I was amazed by the following bible verse ever since I read it years ago:
“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 people are without excuse.” ~ Romans 1:20
Is it true that the existence of the Creator is so self-evident that people are without excuse to deny Him? If people perceive the existence of the biblical Creator as a straightforward and undeniable fact, then there is no need for me to write these posts.
Is there clear evidence, evidence that do not need much elaboration in this world, evidence that straightforwardly pointing to the existence of the biblical Creator? A few arguments that come to my head:
Firstly, the existence of the physical universe. Why is there something rather than nothing? There has to be a supernatural cause that brings in the existence of the natural world.
Secondly, the existence of logic. Why are there physical laws, which are describable by mathematical facts? Why does everything follow logic? Why does one add to one equal to two always? A logical Creator is the most natural explanation, isn’t it?
Thirdly, the amazing structures of the biological world point to a mighty designer. We have discussed this point in the last few posts.
Do biologists agree on my last point above? I suppose there is no definitive answer to represent all biologists. However, there is an interesting quote from a book of a biologist. It says, “Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved”. What does it mean? I think it means that there is a good indication of “design” in biology. However, the author of the book suggests that biologists have to refuse the idea of “design”. Is it reasonable for anyone serious in science to refuse an idea without digging deep into the science?
