Do We Have a Creator ?
Many people have been brought up more on science than religion, and to believe in evolution more than a creator. Let us analyze if we have a creator. When you see a bridge, a building or an automobile, you will not deny that it has a maker, a person or a company behind its existence.
What about the human body with its massive and intricate control systems? Think about the brain: how it thinks, functions, analyzes, retrieves, stores, distinguishes and categorizes information in a millionth of a second, all of this instantly. (And don’t forget the fact that you are using your brain to read this too!). Think about the heart. Think about how it pumps continuously and maintains steady precision throughout the life of the person. Think about the kidneys and the liver and the various functions they perform. The purifying instruments of the body perform hundreds of chemical analysis simultaneously and also control the level of toxicity in the body. Think about your eyes, the human cameras that adjust, focus, interpret, evaluate and discern color automatically, naturally receiving and adjusting to light and distance.
Can random mutation or evolution develop these intricate systems? Can this design come about by itself? For example, throwing paint of different colors on the wall randomly might create some design like a hand or a bird, but it can never create Mona Lisa! The design in our body is much more complex and intricate than Mona Lisa. How rational is it to believe that this design came into existence without a designer?
Let us think about the universe. Our planet earth is one of the several planets in our solar system, and our solar system is one of the several such solar systems in our galaxy. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is one of the several galaxies present in the universe. Scientists say that there are thousands of galaxies in the universe. We can observe an excellent order and precision in the universe. To give an example, solar and lunar eclipses are calculated well in advance. It is possible to calculate the time of sun-rise and sun-set for the next hundreds of years. These things are possible because of the synchronization, balance and harmony that exist amongst the planets and stars in the universe. This is a wonderful example for the presence of excellent design and a set pattern in the universe.
Did this beautiful and perfect design come into existence by chance or by a mere explosion? Let us consider an example for things to happen by chance. Ten marbles numbered 1 to 10 and of different colors are put in a bag and the bag is shaken violently to mix the marbles up. Then, closing your eyes, you try to pull out the marbles in order of 1 to 10. What are the chances of pulling out the marbles in that order? It is twenty six million to one (26,000,000 to 1) and this is just for 10 marbles. What is the probability for the millions of stars and planets to come together with the exact precision, synchronization and orchestration by chance? The answer is zero. This shows that it is not rational to deny the existence of a Creator for this grand universe.
