Is it logical to believe in God? There are extremely intelligent people in prominent positions who doubt that there is a God. Skeptics, atheists, and agnostics cry alike that there is no way to prove clearly that God exists. True, one cannot put God in a test tube to prove that He exists. This is because a spiritual being such as God cannot be tested for physical properties. God points to the folly of thinking of Him in a physical way: “Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself” (Psalm 50:21). God is not like us and cannot be perceived in the physical manner in which we perceive ourselves. We cannot physically see, hear, smell, taste, or touch God. But in light of the abundant evidence we can examine, there is no logical alternative to the fact that God exists.
David penned, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). David saw clear evidence of God and His greatness from the creation, and we can do likewise. Scientists agree that there are only two possibilities for the existence of the universe as we see it today, either (1) evolution or (2) creation. Of course, creation requires a Creator, so those desiring to contain all within the realm of the physical choose to believe evolution. But is evolution the more logical of the two choices? Evolution is sometimes referred to as a “theory,” but it is not. Before a hypothesis (educated guess) can advance to being a theory, it must be tested and observed. However, no one has ever observed evolution occur. Not only this, but the concept of evolution violates the very laws of science and common sense.
It is common knowledge that for every effect there must be adequate cause. If you have a book in your hand, you know that someone wrote it, someone printed it, and someone bound it. If someone were to tell you that book happened by accident when two rocks fell against each other, you would think that person was not playing with a full deck. Is someone playing with a full deck who asserts in front of renowned scientists that a large number of rocks falling against each other led to the formation of the universe, intelligent life included? But this is exactly what evolutionists assert. They are unconcerned that their philosophy violates the Law (positively proven by science) of Biogenesis, which states that “only life can produce life.” Yet evolutionists would have life, and intelligent life at that, being produced by rocks. Science proves that only life could have produced life, and therefore there must have been prior life existing to create the life that exists now. Not only does evolution violate the Law of Biogenesis, but also the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, among other scientific principles. In his article “The Necessity of Darwinism” in the April 15, 1982 issue of New Scientist, evolutionist Richard Dawkins admitted, “The more statistically improbable a thing is, the less we can believe that it just happened by blind chance. Superficially the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer.” However, he gives evolution far more credibility than it deserves when he calls it “chance.” Chance assumes possibility, and there is no possibility for a scientific theory (so called) to be true if it violates the laws of science.
“For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God” (Heb. 3:4). There was no house ever built without a builder, how much less the universe and the life contained therein with all of its intricate workings? Who could give all intelligence to life except for One infinitely intelligent? Many insults have been hurled at those who believe in the Bible account of creation. However, there are increasing amounts of scientists who are seeing the folly of the alternative of evolution. Not only is there insufficient evidence to prove evolution, it is an absolute impossibility. For every cause there must be an effect, and for every design there must be a designer. The only possible cause and designer of the universe is God. This is logical.
Friends and brethren, God exists.
