It has always mystified me how some people can fail to see that there had to be a Creator for our universe, an organized mind that has set forth laws that govern “being.” Everything around us has a law governing it, and laws do not form themselves. Furthermore, man is continually discovering laws, and to discover something, it must first be hidden.
When the Law of Gravity was discovered, it was not new. It had been in existence forever, as we know it. So was the Law of Thermonuclear Dynamics, first found recorded in Genesis 1:1-3 of the Bible, by which God created both the heavens and earth. But I can not prove that! Others will do that, in good time.
Mathematics is known in its various elements and accepted worldwide as a fact. We know it follows specific laws, but few of us realize, or take the time to think about the fact that it is a system that is technically non-existent and without proof, scientifically! If you don’t believe me… touch a number! You can not. You can produce a symbol of a number, and hypothesize a learned conclusion, but you can’t “prove” it! It must be accepted and used by faith.
One fascinating area in the study of mathematics is the calculation of the odds of particular things happening, especially within a specific set of parameters, like time or space. These calculations are used by most industries every day, and our entire social structure hinges on them. Buildings are erected or demolished, roads built, bridges raised, satellites launched, traffic lights installed by them.
This invisible system of mathematics which we rely on so much is what, I suspect, will eventually prove that the God who reveals Himself in the Bible, is, indeed, the universe’s Creator. And this will come about as thinking men and women postulate one simple, beloved, mathematical mystery: sex.
What do you suppose is the mathematical probability for the accidental occurrence of the following scenario? Suppose the eons of earth’s existence are 100 million years. What possibility is there that any single male animal (in its brief lifetime, given earth’s length and girth, it’s depths and heights) would be able locate, recognize, communicate with, or know what organs to use to couple with a female of his own species? Infinitesimally minimal, wouldn’t it be? Add to that the mathematical improbability that their “accidental” genetic makeup would be compatible to reproduce viable offspring.
Mathematically, it would have been impossible for any species to develop from a chance meeting of a sexual nature. But the amazing thing about our planet is that there are various and disassociated species of creatures, and that most are sexual and bear after their own species line on a regular basis at calculated intervals! There are no mathematical calculations currently known to men that can figure the actual possibilities of this happening by chance! It couldn’t. DNA studies prove it didn’t.
So, the next time you think about indulging in that most wonderful, procreative urge that we call sex, thank it’s Creator that He knew what He was doing so long ago when He made you such an intriguing possibility: a thinking person! And if that is not enough to convince you about the God of the Bible… think about this: my God is the one who saw the sexuality of humans and said, “It is very GOOD!”
Thought for today:
“For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ has made me free from the law of Sin and Death.” Romans 8:2
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
