DESIGN: The Reason Some Won’t Believe

Today we’re talking about the argument of design. The intelligence found in DNA, the brilliance of earth’s characteristics that can uniquely sustain life, and the intricate balance required between protons and neutrons in the atom all give clear evidence that the universe was DESIGNED. Some might still wonder, though, “Since there is so much compelling evidence for design, why do so many scientists still promote the idea that the universe is the product of random chance?”

Well … in 2 Peter 3:5, Peter says this about scoffers in his day:

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old.

Truth be told, many people don’t believe because they don’t WANT to believe.

In fact, Patrick Glynn of Washington University, says:

The mainstream scientific community has in effect shown its attachment to the atheistic ideology of the random universe to be in some respects more powerful than its commitment to the scientific method itself.


There’s more evidence for design, including the innerworkings of the cell, but we’ll address that another time. Until then, find more apologetic resources at Stay bold!
