The case for a Creator: Who bangded it?

For many people I know, one of the greatest hurdles to believing in God is embracing the concept of creation. They look at the world around them, and they ask: “Did God create it, or did it happen by evolution?”

Even if the cosmos did begin with a big bang—who bangded it? And where did the stuff that got bangded come from? When was the last time you heard of an explosion involving nothing?

And once it was bangded, who organized it? Women, often more so than men, have a unique ability to arrange themselves in a way that highlights their natural beauty. But when they wake up in the morning, it’s not all orderly and beautiful. Stuff is bangded! And they must apply creativity, time, heat, water and pressure before they the “system” is in order.

By the way, I use the example of women because men wake up, look in the mirror, say “yep, I still got it”—and go to work. We just don’t care!

Think about your home or apartment: what would happen if there weren’t a person there, cleaning and organizing it? The space would become disorderly and then dysfunctional! When we look at the natural world, we see organization. To every problem there is a great natural solution. To reproduce, flowers require pollination—so God made bees to fly from flower to flower, eating nectar and pollinating them in the process. There are some foods we can’t metabolize on our own, so God made bacteria that lives in our large intestine to help us do that.

How can we look at such a highly-organized system, and believe that it came from chaos? Romans 1:20 says that “since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made…”

When I look at creation, I see God’s hand—and that was His intent! Psalm 19:1 says it best: “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
