The exquisite beauty of human life

By Tom Quiner


I am typing this post on a MacBook Pro. What a piece of engineering it is. Thank-you Steve Jobs and Apple Computer.

Do you know anyone who would think that this cool laptop could have been created by naturalistic forces? In other words, do you think it is possible for a MacBook Pro to be created by random chance over billions of years by the primal forces of the universe?

In other words, do you think it is possible that the chips, the plasma screen, the hard drive, the keys with the alphabet arranged in a certain order, the jacks, the battery and the thousands of parts involved in making this machine would just kind of fall into place through random luck?

Atheists do.

They believe there is no God, that there is no Intelligent Designer of the universe. They believe that a much more complex machine than a MacBook Pro, a human being, just came about through the vagaries of chance.

This requires a very big leap of faith. I can’t buy the atheists’ religion. I like a more believable religion like Christianity.

I watched a video last night that was extraordinary. I posted it above, and it is worth watching. The speaker is Alexander Tsiaras, president and CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, Inc. He has worked with Yale and NASA in different capacities. He uses sophisticated imaging to create beautiful recreations of human creation.

This video is you.

He says that at just four weeks after conception, this little human being is creating a million new cells a second!

He says that the complexity of the mathematic models necessary to explain this process is beyond human comprehension.

Mr. Tsiaras,  who is a mathematician, asks “how do we have this biological mechanism within our bodies? How do these instruction sets not make mistakes as they build what is us? It’s a mystery. It’s magic. It’s divinity.”

Evidently, we have a blueprint in us. Where does it come from?

Who designed us? Darwin or God?

    This brilliant man seems to be overwhelmed with this information. He acknowledges that it is beyond human capability to understand how the human body meshes together and has a perfect design. He can only attribute it to divinity. I wonder what some of the audience members were thinking!
