Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”

Though Creation Moments doesn’t agree with everything that Christian author and apologist Eric Metaxas believes about origins, we have to congratulate him on his excellent op-ed piece that appeared in The Wall Street Journal – “Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God.”

Eric Metaxas at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2012Metaxas pointed out, “Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life – every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart.”

He followed that up by asking such pertinent questions as: “Can every one of those many parameters have been perfect by accident?” And: “Doesn’t assuming that an intelligence created these perfect conditions require far less faith than believing that a life-sustaining Earth just happened to beat the inconceivable odds to come into being?”

Naturally, an op-ed piece like this was sure to anger atheists and evolutionists. One prominent atheist – Lawrence Krauss – wrote a letter to the editor stating what we’ve heard many times before: “The appearance of design of life on Earth is overwhelming, but we now understand, thanks to Charles Darwin, that the appearance of design is not the same as design.”

Following in Richard Dawkins’ footsteps, Krauss discards what he himself calls the “overwhelming” evidence of design. But atheists like Krauss and Dawkins must toss out this evidence only because their godless worldview demands it. Thanks but no thanks. Creationists prefer real science over the atheistic philosophy of evolutionism. Things that appear to be designed really were designed!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for creating the universe with such complexity that even atheists can’t miss seeing Your hand in its creation. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
