“But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.” (1Cor1:27) The academic disciplines of the world are tainted by ideas of things creating themselves. Yet the origin of things and the present workings of the world around us testify to God’s creation.
Taking the smallest viruses, there are clear evidences of creation. The complexity of viruses testify to God’s creation, as it remains impossible to determine how the various genomes of viruses could evolve. When considering the presence of overlapping genes in viruses and other creatures, evolution falls apart in its inability to explain how such genes could evolve by chance. And in the immune system, the mechanism of somatic hypermutation in antibody generation demonstrates irreducible complexity and is clearly designed. There is no possibility for random chance. All these testify to the wonders of God’s creation.
If psychologists can use the “Tower of Hanoi” game to test for cognitive abilities, and the 64-disc version of the game itself can take up to 585 billion years to complete, how much more do the biological systems, being far more complex than the 64-disc version of the game, testify to a literal 6-day creation by an all-powerful and wise God? In fact, psychology offers more: Studying human behavior, psychologists have uncovered “evil” and have shown that people are not even aware of how evil we are. This clearly supports the fallen state of man, where we cannot keep the 10 commandments even with our best efforts. God reminds us of this in His Word, and it is only through the Lord Jesus Christ that we have redemption and salvation.
This illustrated presentation was recorded at the 2016 Australian Creation SuperCamp in front of a live audience.
