It happens all the time. We have a propensity to forget what is important. Husbands or wives take each other for granted, until something happens and the realization of the importance of the relationship is awakened. Children take a place of safety with adults for granted, until something happens that shows situations can challenge it.
But this happens in the real physical world as well. We see pictures of earth. They are so commonplace. Then a local catastrophic event occurs or even threatens our concept of a safe planet. We awaken to the preciousness of our home.
Consider the sketch below. The lines are drawn to scale. The width of the yellow line is much wider that the belt of safe atmosphere where we can live and breath without assistance.
The example is just the tip of the iceberg. The list of special features about the atmosphere alone that permits us to live is long. Add to this list another list of features of the planet’s position, rotation, orbit. The overall list grows tenfold. We are not just a “Goldilocks” planet. We live on THE planet. That is what Genesis states, Isaiah states (another quote from God), and Job states. The biblical view is clear; God is clear. There is no chance–NO STATISTICAL CHANCE AT ALL–for this planet to have arrived at its current state through an undirected, accidental, slow process over billions of years, which is the commonly taught conjecture.
However, if you tell people enough for long enough that the emperor has no clothes, then his consitutuents that see him naked may still believe he has clothes on. How could, after all, anything else be the case?
Wake up! Challenge what has been popularly taught!
Creation occurred as written in the Bible. God makes it “in our face” every day. We see it everyday. We experience it every day. We continue to breath on an extremely narrow strip of uniquely created and sustained atmosphere.
Want more references that believing scientists have written? Here are just a few:
The Stars and Their Purpose by Werner Gitt
The Creation Answers Book by Batten and others
Taking Back Astronomy by Jason Lisle
Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels by Nine Ph.D. Scientists (new)
Remember, too, that God is not against science. Rather, He impassions its practice. Origins, however, is in the realm of history. We have a Witness who told us what happened.
