With this post I wanted to share some inspirational videos related to the subject of Intelligent Design/Creation Science, that I have discovered over the past few years while browsing the Internet. These links are posted below the following comments…
When I first authored this post (just a few days before this update), I turned it into a bit of rant against those who believe in Evolution; whether professing to be Christians, Atheists or Agnostics. I allowed my personal convictions about the subject to be phrased in such a way that it didn’t allow for anyone else to have a different perspective without it sounding like I was labeling everyone as stupid who didn’t agree with me. For this I sincerely apologize.
What I originally intended to convey, before my zeal and emotion got the better of me, was simply how awe-inspiring I find God’s amazing creation! To me, the evidence supporting Creation is truly overwhelming. I personally find it difficult to understand how anyone could look at a sunset, or the beauty of a mountain range, an ocean, or even a fluttering butterfly in all of its colorful splendor and not realize that the very fingerprint of God is so obvious before the eyes. When I hear people complain, “Where is God? If He really exists then why doesn’t He reveal Himself to us?” it makes me want to say, “Are you not able to see? Are you aware at all of nature’s beauty, complexity and order?” As I said before, it is as though God’s very fingerprint is evident everywhere before our eyes. Some people say, “But why doesn’t He reveal Himself in a form we can comprehend or communicate with?” To which I must respond, “He has… Ever heard of Jesus? God clothed Himself in human flesh and demonstrated His love for us…” Guess what? Many people refused to believe Him then as well… In fact, the humans He came to reveal Himself to then, killed Him. Some say, “Yes but that was 2,000 years ago… What about today? What about now? Why can’t we have a real relationship with God now? I mean a REAL one?” Sigh… Jesus answered this question when He told His disciples that after He physically departed from this Earth, He would send “another Comforter” and this is the One known as “The Holy Spirit”. Through His Spirit, Jesus promised that He would NEVER leave us or forsake us. So we have all these evidences; Creation, Christ, and the Spirit of God that comes to every person who believes the Gospel. Still today, many people refuse to believe in God. I confess that I’m not sure how else to convince them, since the most obvious examples they do not appear to be interested in. God knows.
I genuinely believe common sense even dictates that we are CREATED and marvelously so! Watch some or all of the videos I have posted below and see if you cannot agree. The incredible precision with which nature functions, even how it shows that there is a program written in our very makeup (DNA), indicates the obvious truth that someONE designed us! Doesn’t the evidence of design logically demand that there must be a designer? I believe so! What’s especially fascinating to me is that, just as scientists continue to discover more amazing things the further out into space they peer, so they are finding the same as they use their microscopes to look inward. The complexity, design and wonder of the human cell is truly beyond words. There are entire “factories” and complicated bio-machines and processes that completely boggle the mind in their detail and function (and their obvious elements of design). And for all that scientists currently know about the human cell, they admit that they have only scratched the surface. The information present within is staggering to even attempt comprehending. It is more complex than any computer. The human body has over 100 trillion cells and yet there is more information in just one single cell than in a space shuttle! Think about that for a moment!
Mankind’s greatest technological accomplishment cannot even come close to the marvel of the detail found in nature! It seems incredible to me that anyone could actually honestly believe that there is no God.
I love science! I love to explore and observe how things work, especially the natural processes of life in God’s magnificent creation – because they all testify so grandly that He is real! My own wife came to believe through her investigation of the evidence supporting Creation. It is absolutely true that God is made known to people through His creation. How awesome!
Romans 1:19-22 They know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.
The following video is called The Programming of Life and it is an exciting journey into the wonder of human DNA. I love this presentation.

This next video was put together by a YouTube user and reflects on the six days of Creation with some fantastic imagery.

Another video by “Answers In Genesis” about DNA, which testifies to the creative work of God.
