Science has been of little real use to humanity. With all of the revelations that have come to light about the awesome engineering that has gone into living things that are all around us, there is almost no credit given to the actual Designer and Sustainer of each and every one.
There’s a huge wealth of engineering invested in all the creatures on this planet that we share. The world of science is a world of dry bones, clouds without rain, trees without fruit… I’ve learned to take everything that comes out of it as hopelessly warped and misleading. Giving credit for the universe and everything in it to the wild fantasy that spontaneous generation is.
If you have any fondness for reality as I do, let’s examine living things in the light of the actual Engineer behind them. Someone that is actually capable of such wonderful things, such feats of design and integration, beauty and efficiency and the accolades could go on infinitely… (“consider the ant and be wise” the scripture says).
How about the beaver? An amazing clever fellow in his own right! They can fell trees all day long with 4 little teeth, dine on the bark and assemble them into complex dam systems that double as dry and secure apartments for mom and dad and several babies and they don’t mind sharing it with several frogs, muskrats and other tennants. Beavers themselves share much of the bodyplan with rats and mice on a gigantic scale and yet they are responsible for cultivating much of the native forests of the American continent! He’s definitely a keystone animal and that is by no doubt a huge design effort and behavioral training on the part of our Creator. The same God that dammed up the sea for the Israelites to pass along the dry seabed with walls of water on both sides as documented in the Book of Exodus.
What about the housefly that so closely resembles the biting stable fly and yet they have completely different mouthparts. Both are wonderfully engineered flying machines again on nearly identical body plans, but serve us in completely diffent ways. Both start out as maggots serving as undertakers and cleanup crews recycling and preventing the spread of disease. One also functions as a cattle prod-and human prod to help prevent an over sedentary existence. Both do what they do extremely well and our lives are better for it.
The Person behind these great achievements is the same that is behind the rest of the universe that spans beyond His planet we call “earth”. All praise and glory must go to Him and Him alone!!
