A little language practice is always good for refreshing or even broadening our knowledge. Most of you, who are English lovers, have probably thought of reading the Bible in English already, or getting to know Bible-related expressions which can help us to understand the Scripture better. In this column of the site, we will look at some popular and frequently asked questions in connection with God and the Bible, learn some Bible verses in English and practice our language skills as well.
First of all, we will go through some parts of the book, called “Most important questions – Answer guide” written by Doug Batchelor and the Amazing Facts Community. Let’s see the first chapter!
Doesn’t science tell me that God doesn’t exist?
“I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.“ (Psalm 139:14)
King David wrote these words thousands of years before the invention of the microscope as he marveled on the incredible way humanity was made.Contrary to popular culture, which says that science has proven God doesn’t exist, the very opposite is true: Science has made the existence of God even more obvious than when this psalm was written.
For example, consider the simple cell. (Well, no one is calling it “simple” any more.) For 100 years, some scientists taught that the single cell was nothing but a crude blob of protoplasm. Today, they know it has a fantastically intricate design and staggering complexity that boggles the mind.
Believing this could happen by chance is not too different than believing you could fire a nuclear bomb onto the surface of the moon and find that the resulting settling dust formed into a fully operational Disneyland amusement park.
Likewise, just one human cell can be compared in complexity to a major city: sewers, electricity, a central government, electrical grid, roads, transportation, borders, power plants, and on and on.
Think what it would take for a city to reproduce itself – cloning itself by splitting down the middle and having both halves already functioning perfectly. Impossible. Yet cells do it all the time. In fact, it’s happening now in your body too!
Science has also revealed that an amazing amount of information is stored in a human cell, which has enough space to store about 3 terabytes. And other kinds of cells, which has enough space equivalent information of 1000 encyclopedias. Considering that the human body is made up of about 75 trillion cells, that’s … well… an amazing amount of information!
And that’s the result of an accident?
All this powerful evidence of the existence of God has been revealed by science. No wonder Isaac Newton, one of the greatest scientists of all time, wrote this about his discoveries: “O, God, I think thy thoughts after thee!”
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7)
