A higher power exists

Recently I was walking behind the Columbia County Library in Evans and came across a mother with her little son, who was a little older than 2. He was busy explaining to her a twig he found on the ground and something in a tree. I could not help but comment: “How wonderful it must be to carry on a conversation with your son.” She responded by saying, “Yes – all day long.”

 

We are a reasonable people. We have outstanding intelligence. Our accomplishments could fill the Library of Congress! How could we intelligently think and accept that this beautiful child is the product of an unintelligent, nonexistent force – a fantasy that has not and cannot be proved? Explain the complexness of the human body, the complexity of the cell and the very existence of life!

Could the “nothing” of evolution produce the love that grows in the mother’s heart, for the little baby that came from her body? Could a theory, at its beginning of such, know to create human compassion, a mind to think and a desire to achieve? Would the “nothing” know to learn the different laws of science that we use each day of our lives?

Could the “nothing” produce the perfect, beautiful, 10 little toes and 10 little fingers?
