You say there is no God, well that seems impossible to me. For if God does not exist then explain the wonders of this world to me. Who tells a flower when to grow, or to remain just a simple seed? You can plant it in the ground, feed and water it if you like, but you have no special power to make it grow. Once planted who tells it to grow into a flower, instead of a weed?
What about a caterpillar? Who tells it when to become a butterfly? How does it know when it is time to form its cocoon and transform from an ugly, furry worm that crawls upon the ground into a beautiful butterfly with brightly colored wings?
And another thing Iíd like you to explain to me is the mystery of the sea turtle. Who tells it once itís hatched to make a race toward the sea before it is eaten by birds of prey? After all its mother just dug a whole in the sand, expelled it from her womb, covered it with sand and returned to the sea, never again to return to check on her little hatchlings. Do you think she left a note?
Or pray tell me if you can how do all the animals know how to care for their young, how to hunt, or what to eat? They have no books to read with step-by-step instructions like you, and me. Even if they did where would they keep them for they have no library shelves within their homes, or dens. Besides that they cannot read them anyway. So I guess they rely on instinct alone, but who do you suppose supplies them with that?
Say come to think of it who tells the sun when to shine? Who tells it to go down at night, and return again the next day? Or who do you suppose tells the moon, and stars to come out at night? And who do you think is responsible for creating the earth on which we live? What about the four seasons, who do you, think instructs them on the months they are to fall?
You know I think we could go like this forever, and you could not begin to explain to me how the wonders of creation ever came to be without a creator to tell them how to form from nothing into what God intended them to be. This amazing universe in which we live may have started with a bang you see cause I am sure when God said let there be light it was an amazing sight to see, and hear, too bad we were not around to witness it from the beginning. Guess we will have to ask God what it was like when we see Him in heaven, come to think of it Iíll bet that also is an amazing sight too see.
