Atheist, Richard Dawkins, once said the completely erroneous statement, “I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.” Granted, this is what he thinks, but it could not be further from the truth. We Christians celebrate God’s creation! We are wonderfully made (Psalm 139) and have been brought to life by the very breath of God (Genesis 2:7)! I said, the “breath” of God! Not created by some mighty sweeping hand or gale of stormy wind, but of a delicate intimate loving gentle breath! We Christians see and marvel of the heavens and the beauty around us (Psalm 19). We know that God created everything ex nihilo. Dawkins and those like him don’t see the poetry in mankind. They don’t see the artwork and majesty in a butterfly’s wing or in the design of the male Wood Duck. They don’t see the wonderfully engineered maple seed with it beautiful wing. I’ll bet Dawkins and those in his camp see the maple seeds only as litter upon his lawn.
To believe that humans, our world and the whole universe are just happenstance mutations is the most ugly twisted perversion of truth invented by man. The book, “I Am, the Great Creator God” was written for the main purpose to get people…people on both sides…to simply open their eyes to a different way of seeing God’s wonderful creation! Dawkins has his hateful ugly views, that’s okay for him, but to spread it as fact is wrong. People wavering on the fence, not knowing what to believe, ask yourself three simple questions: 1) When things naturally move toward a state of disorder, does it make sense that we humans evolved from plankton? 2) Where did the “primordial soup” come from? and 3) If evolution is real then why do some species evolve and others don’t; are not the same forces applied to all?
In a world with such evil and hate surrounding us all, do we really need to condemn the Christian religion, claiming “it teaches to be satisfied with not understanding the world”? While many religions find beauty in the world, I propose that Christianity, because it holds Jesus Christ as the agent of creation, is the only religion that celebrates God’s creation at its highest levels.
