“Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.”
On Creation Moments, we often challenge evolution with examples that show that the creation is carefully and lovingly designed by the Creator. Many of these evidences leave evolutionists silent and unable to respond. But one evidence for design is so powerful, it almost seems unfair for creationists to mention it. Yet they do, as in one release from scientists at the Institute for Creation Research.
While the brain weighs only three pounds, it can do the work of 1,000 super computers. It doesn’t need to be connected to a power source, and it doesn’t overheat because it is able to make its own electricity and it operates on only microvolts of power. If your brain’s 10 trillion cells were placed end to end, they would stretch for over 100,000 miles. Your brain has the capacity to store every word of every book on a bookshelf 500 miles long.
In order for the human brain to have evolved from a simpler brain in the time that evolutionists claim it has, the brain would have had to evolve millions of new cells every year for millions of years. A.R. Wallace, co discoverer with Charles Darwin of natural selection, once noted that there is a huge gulf between the human brain and that of the ape. Darwin recognized what Wallace’s argument did to their theory and responded, “I hope you have not murdered completely your own and my child.”
God has given you a brain that has wonderful abilities. Don’t waste one of the greatest material gifts the Creator has given you.
Forgive me, Father, for underestimating the great gift that You have given me – my brain. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
