Trillions of reasons to believe in a Creator.

There are trillions of reasons to believe in a supernatural, intelligent Creator. From DNA, to the basic atom, to the amazingly designed tiny fleas, to massive elephants, to the sun and its circuit, to the millions of stars and the entire universe, there is incredible complexity and order throughout creation. Let’s say you were walking along a beach and saw a message written in the sand: “Johnny, Make sure you come home at 5:00 p.m. for dinner. See you then. I love you. Mom.” Could you ever believe that the order of the words happened by a random process—by sheer accident? Could you conclude that perhaps the incoming waves left the words written in the sand? I seriously doubt it. Their very order and their constructed logical coherency tell you that the message was written by an intelligent mind. However, atheistic evolution takes an even greater leap away from common sense than just believing that a wave created a logical message. It says that there was absolutely nothing—no sand, no beach, or wave. It maintains that nothing created the sand and the waves. Such thoughts are totally illogical and are a departure from the laws of science. Something cannot come from nothing. If it did, then it wasn’t “nothing.” It was some sort of creative force.

What proof is there that this God exists? Even though through my natural senses I cannot see, hear, touch, taste, or smell Him, there is one other sense that I must not overlook. It is called “common” sense. When I look at a building, how can I know that there was a builder? I cannot see him, hear him, touch, taste, or smell him. Common sense tells me that the building is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a builder. There cannot be a building without a builder. Buildings don’t build themselves. I don’t need faith to believe in a builder; all I need is eyes that can see and a brain that works.

This same concept is true for paintings and painters. When I look at a painting, how can I know there was a painter? Common sense tells me that the painting is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a painter. Paintings don’t happen by themselves. I couldn’t want better proof that there was a painter than to have the painting in front of me. I don’t need faith to believe in a painter; all I need is eyes that can see and a brain that works.

Exactly the same reasoning applies with the existence of God. How can we know God exists? We cannot see Him, hear Him, touch, taste, or smell Him. Common sense tells us that creation is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a Creator. We cannot have a creation without a Creator. We don’t need faith to believe in a Creator. All we need is eyes that can see and a brain that works. This is exactly what the Bible says: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20).

So, just as I don’t need faith to believe in a builder because I have the building in front of me, so I don’t need faith to believe in a Creator, because I have creation in front of me. However, if I want the builder to do something for me, then I need to have faith in him. The same is true with God: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb. 11:6).

Albert Einstein may not have trusted in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, but he believed in the existence of God. He said, “In the view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support of such views.” A little child and the genius of Albert Einstein have one thing in common: common sense.

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…

    this is the paragraph where you get it wrong,
    However, atheistic evolution takes an even greater leap away from common sense…. ….Something cannot come from nothing. If it did, then it wasn’t “nothing.” It was some sort of creative force.

    I’m not sure what you mean by saying there is no sand, waves etc and how our ideas are a departure from scientific logic, the idea that this universe is in such an order and how everything was created perfectly is a major departure from scientific logic! There is absolutely no order in the universe, in our knowledge it’s basically an infinite amount of matter strewn further than the eye can see, there are literally trillions upon trillions of planets and stars out there! Science could well explain that there is possibly some chance of conditions that breed life on maybe a handful of these planets, earth being one. This ‘complex creation’ is completely explainable by the laws of physics and chemistry, Gravity holds planets in orbit around their respective star, it holds planets together, it holds moons in orbit, it holds stars in orbit around their galaxy’s,
    The second paragraph is also made invalid, yes it’s engrained in our knowledge the process on how humans build things, it’s just as you say ‘common sense’. The creation of the earth and the universe was just caused by natural occurrences of physical forces that occur in every day life, but on a large scale. We just haven’t seen this large scale creation before so we cannot picture it in our minds like a construction worker building a skyscraper.
    The belief in a god comes from the very earliest times of humanity, before any modern science was known. Peoples brains are far more advanced than any animals brains (due to evolutionary processes I might add) so they become curious, they wanted to be able to explain what caused everything to happen, they wanted to be able to understand, so they came up with their own theories – they came up with their respective gods. In short, the bible is an ancient understanding of how people perceived the world at the time it was written. People these days who do not have faith in science and cannot believe how it could have created the universe, still want to believe in the ancient idea of ‘God’.
    I haven’t read the entire bible, but what is written in there does have some very good principles on how to live a better life, the problem is how hung up on it people get, they turn these verses into rules that you must live by in order to get to ‘heaven’. What it really means is if you truly live by these principals, you will be at peace and have a better life on earth.

    Basically you can choose to have a faith in a supernatural force that hasn’t had one hint of explaining since the idea of its existence, or you can have a faith in science which as time goes on, people are able to explain more and more with logical sense.

    This is utterly wrong. The argument that complexity requires design but the highly complex designer that is proposed is immune to that requirement is a childishly foolish special pleading.

    “Common sense tells us that creation is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a Creator.” No. First, science is about tentative conclusions. There is no such thing as “absolute 100 percent scientific proof”. It’s no wonder you are a creationist if you think silly things like that. What exists is the best current theories based on observable, repeatable facts. You (whoever you are) making things up are not science.

    It is ironic that faith in Christ is so often cited as the core of christianity yet you try to provide “evidence” (a thing you fail utterly at). You don’t even understand your own religion, which is sad.
