I would really like to know who gathered the following information but it is really by our old friend “Anonymous.” According to atheists, life is the result of a series of propitious accidents and random mutations that just happen to be beneficial. If they take the time to read this, they will attribute each example of intelligent design to unintelligent processes. Whatever your belief or lack of it, this is pretty good food for thought.
God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. For example,
- The eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
- Those of the canary in 14 days;
- Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days.
- The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;
- Those of the mallard in 35 days.
- The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven).
God’s design is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other Quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs.
- For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.
- The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
- A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
God’s wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!
- Each watermelon has an even number of strips on the rind.
- Each orange has an even number of segments.
- Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
- Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
- Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.
- All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks
The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, so that Linneus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!
Design is evident. Design requires a designer.
Many have decided not to believe and that is certainly their prerogative. For myself, I choose to believe in a Creator. Too much of what I see is inexplicable without Him.
In Romans 1 Paul writes, “…that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made…”
