I had an epiphany this week end. My wife and I usually have very deep discussions on faith, life and what ever we are watching on tv at the moment. Our conversation went to how amazing it is that everything in the universe works perfectly so that life may exist on earth, yes we where watching the Discovery channel. Then it hit me, Evolutionist Scientists (or Darwinists for short) spend so much of their time trying to learn how something works so they can be amazed at how it does it they forget to be amazed at why it does it.
So often Darwinists, and a lot of Atheists also, tend to say that Christians are opposed to science, this is not true at all. A lot of the Christians I know love science, in fact we TiVo a lot of shows and specials on the Discovery channel and science channels. A lot of us are big fans of Gene Roddenberry and Isaac Asimov. But the big difference is that we care about the WHY.
So my challenge to all the Atheists that pass by this blog, stop for a moment and ponder why things work the way they do. I don’t mean to say that this works so that that can do it’s thing, thats more of how it does it. I mean to really think why do the planets circle the sun in a specific pattern and at a precise distance. Why does water evaporate into the clouds just to fall again as rain. There are so many questions like this that can help you see the real beauty in life.
Now my Christian brothers and sisters. My challenge to you and to do the same thing. Take time to look at nature and all the life around you and rejoice that God is in control of it all. Remember also that all this beauty on earth is but merely a shadow of what we will see once we are in heaven.
