Evidence That GOD Exists
By Steven Power
Most Important Questions
debate over the existence of a creator is as old as history. Men and
Women are asking the same questions today as they always have. Who am
I? Where did I come from? Where am I going?
answers to these most important of questions will determine how we
live our lives perhaps more than any other single factor.
there is no creator of us and our universe then neither we nor the
entire universe have any real meaning, there will be no ultimate
accountability for our actions, No ultimate punishment for evil doers
and no ultimate reward for the good.
we are simply the result of the random accumulation of randomly
produced molecules that have been combining and recombining for
countless millions of years on a planet that was randomly produced as
the result of a random explosion of a “Cosmic Egg” that exploded
for no reason and came from nowhere,
then we have no more ultimate
value than a mosquito, a piece of mold or a rock!
we were created by an intelligent being for a purpose, we have NO ultimate purpose, and any purpose that we might imagine for our
existence is simply make believe.
There can be no real right or
wrong, no good or evil. Only my arbitrary preference against your
arbitrary preference. Hitler could do what he did because it was
justified in his mind, and no one has any real authority to question
it, Because, if there is no ultimate Truth then your truth can be
your truth, and my truth can be my truth. Morality would be relative
to the circumstance and one’s personal definition of truth.
God made the rules they are just man’s inventions. No absolute
the evolutionist’s world there can be no real distinction between a
human and any other mere animal since we are all descended from the
same accidentally produced cell.
we teach our children that they are simply another animal species, then we cannot complain when they begin to act like one.
And how do
animals behave? you might say they behave “like animals”.
real world nature is cruel, and completely amoral. In the natural world animals don’t have “rights” and neither do
humans. There is no good or evil, No right or wrong. In the animal
kingdom morality is never
It is simply kill or be killed, No rules.
an evolutionist’s world whether we raise our children to adulthood
or just eat them at birth there can be no real moral difference, no right
or wrong behavior. Many animals sometimes eat their young or kill
them if they are sick. But no
animal has ever committed an immoral act.
If a shark swimming through the ocean eats a human or a sea turtle it
hasn’t done anything “wrong” it only knows that it was hungry
and it saw food. It was the “natural” thing to do. Why is it that
humans are the only creatures on the planet to worry about such
things as Morality, Honesty and Justice ? could it be that we are
different than the animals?
No matter how hard we try no culture has
ever been able to extinguish mankind’s insatiable desire to find
answers to these questions of the how and why of our existence.
centuries the best arguments for the existence of a Creator have
focused on the necessity of an intelligent designer to account
for the obvious appearance of design in the world all around us. (
This is also the reason that the Bible says we will be “without
excuse” for not recognizing that there is a Creator . Romans 1:20 /
Psalm 19:1-2 )
However, since Charles Darwin’s day the atheist and
the evolutionist have argued that the “appearance” of design is
merely an illusion, because, they say, that given enough time and
matter, chance alone can, and will produce anything and everything
that can be produced with matter-including things that appear to be
designed but in fact are not,
and therefore there is no need to
pretend that some “god” or “gods” did it.For
decades this line of reasoning has been held up as the only
rational and scientific explanation for the natural world, and is
taught exclusively in every science class in American public school
and university, where it is forbidden to even discuss the evidence
for the only alternative to Darwinism i.e. special creation. That is
not education, that is indoctrination.
dogma has been forced upon us for too long ! (When I refer to
evolution I am referring to the “Molecules to Man” theory that
life arose spontaneously by chance from dead matter, and gradually
changed over vast periods of time to produce all life as it now
all of this completely apart from any intelligent creator.) Not that
there is not change within species through natural selection, because
there is. But it is only the expression of latent genetic information
that already exists in the genes. This is built in adaptability that
actually implies an even greater level of design and engineering that
would be required.
This materialistic philosophy and it’s daughter theory of spontaneous generation and macroevolution is, I believe, destined to take it’s place
alongside the theory of the flat earth .(that incidentally was also
vigorously defended by some of the “experts” of that time.) I
believe that it will happen soon. Because the evidence is mounting
day by day for the absolutely inescapable conclusion that there must
be an infinitely powerful Creator of all things.
want to look at some fairly recent developments in a relatively new
field of science that have in fact proven beyond any reasonable doubt
that an intelligent creator must be responsible at the very least for the
life on planet earth. The field of science that I am referring to is
called “Information Theory” and it deals with among other things,
the design and creation of coded message systems and there
application to computer technology.
From this field of study much has
been learned about codes in general that has been applied by
Biologists studying the genetic code .
it turns out the Genetic Code is the final proof positive that God
exists. If that sounds like a strong statement, It is! But check it
out and see what you think.
see, a code is something that simply must
be designed by an intelligent being. It is quite simple actually.
A code consists of at least two
parts, First a set of symbols or “letters” that will be used to
“store” the message or information to be coded. For example the
Morse Code uses sequences of dots and dashes to store a message.
English language that you are reading right now is a code that uses
funny shaped little marks on a page called “letters” arranged
into “words” to store information.
second part of a code is the cool part, It is the non
part, the “information” the “concept” the “software” if
This part of a code is attached to the symbols by a purely
mental process that does not correspond to any physical law of
nature, it is strictly an arbitrary task that can only be
accomplished by an intelligent being with a mind.
You see, the symbol itself can
mean something or it can mean nothing , but it can only mean
something if an intelligent being decides that from now on when you
see this symbol it will stand for this or that.
That is how we read a
sentence. The symbols R-E-A-D by themselves don’t “mean”
anything but grouped together we recognize them as a “code” word
to describe the process of decoding sequences of letters on a page
that have information attached to them (we call this reading), But we
know the code
which in this case is the English language in order to understand
what information is being encoded.
the evolutionist may argue that infinite time and chance might have
produced the dots and dashes, or the letters themselves, to suggest
that the same process could ever
produce the meaning
that is attached to them is not only silly it is demonstrably
If the study of information theory has taught us anything it has
taught us that “information” “programs” and “codes” do
not and cannot ever arise by chance. It is in fact the opposite of
chance that is required to produce a coded information storage and
retrieval system such as the Genetic Code.
Evolution can at best only
account for the “hardware” of life (although it really can’t
even do that) But even if it could the “software” must come from
somewhere else apart from the material world.
me use another example. If you were to see this on a sheet of paper
. . – - – . . . and you knew the Morse Code, You would recognize
immediately S.O.S. the international distress signal. However if you
previously learn the Morse code then you would recognize six dots
separated by three dashes, curious but meaningless.
You see, a code
can only work if both parties involved in the communication
understand and agree upon the meaning that will be attached to the
Think of it this way, There were always plenty of dots and
dashes around even before Samuel Morse decided to use them to design
a code. The difference was that they didn’t mean anything, until he
chose to attach meaning to them, Get it?
The point is that
intelligence is absolutely
necessary to account for any coded message system. There is no way to
The Genetic Code is an extremely complicated coded
information storage and retrieval system that we are just beginning
we still don’t fully understand how it all works, It is basically
the same concept as any other language, but instead of “letters”
it uses chemical bases called “nucleotides” that are arranged in
specific sequences to store the instructions for building the
The most interesting thing is that it is all done
with the same
every living thing that has ever lived on this planet has used the
same genetic code to build it’s particular body. The “letters “
of the genetic code are the amino acids Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine,
Thymine and Uracil with these five “letters “the instructions for
all of the design found in all living things on earth are written out
in coded form in one language that is the same for all life on earth. Imagine if we discovered that all the blueprints for every living creature were written in French, would we not conclude that an conscious intelligent designer was responsible?
Idea Was It Anyway?
, the “letters” themselves are not
the information, they simply store the information in an abstract
form in the physical realm.
We call this the “software “ the
information does not actually exist in the physical, it is NON physical! it only exists as a concept until it is expressed in the completed living organism.
question that must be asked is who
wrote the plans?
We must ask “who” since we know that matter by
does not contain concepts, plans or codes.
It can be made to store
concepts, plans and codes in abstract form symbolically, but raw
matter has no intrinsic information content. It is ( ateleonomic)
question for the evolutionist is this, Who
developed the language in the first place for the genetic code system
to work? Would the Morse Code ever have happened by itself without
Samuel Morse developing it? No.
Well I will say that if Samuel Morse
had to design the Morse Code then someone
had to design the genetic code too.
Where did the information come
from? If you can believe that information like that can just evolve
out of nowhere then you have great
the design for a complicated computer system arise by chance?
logic and intelligence says no.
But for the sake of argument let’s
grant the evolutionist’s assertion that given enough time and
matter chance will combine and recombine all the molecules in the
universe an infinite number of times and eventually produce anything
and everything that can be produced of matter.
Granting that, let’s
look through all the trillions and trillions of random things that
were created by the chance combination of molecules of physical
molecules and after searching for multiplied trillions of years we
come across something that we recognize, it is a modern computer
system! in fact it is an IBM computer system, amazing! so we plug it
in and turn it on, the lights come on but nothing else happens, Why?
— because there is no software!
You see software
is not made of physical material!
so it would not be produced by this method EVER!
Random evolution could produce a trillion universes full of computer
“hardware” but it cannot ever produce the “software” for any
point of this is that the current arguments for biological evolution
are at best arguing for the random production of the “hardware”
But there is no way to account for the ’software” or the
“information” that is contained within the genetic code of the
Since we know for sure that matter by itself does
contain any software, therefore if any matter is found to be storing
”software” or “information” we know for certain that it was
placed there by a conscious. intelligent being, and there is no other possible
explanation for it’s existence.
Imagine the complexity of the
blueprints needed to build a human eye that only works if it is
connected by blood vessels to a human heart and an optic nerve that
is connected to a human brain etc. etc. And yet all of this almost
infinitely complex information is written out and stored in coded
form on strands of DNA!, with a complete copy of the entire program in
the nucleus of nearly every cell in your body!
light of all that we know of software, codes and information as a
result of the digital revolution of the past few years, it is
ludicrous to expect anyone to believe that the information we have
found stored in the genetic code could be there by anything other
than by means of an intelligent agent.
Anyone who is willing to
believe that these things could have come about by chance has GREAT
faith and is believing it for some other reason besides logic. As
certain as I am that there exists an intelligent being who wrote the
software for the computer program I am using right now, I am equally
certain that there exists an intelligent being who wrote the software
for the genetic code. By definition that would be GOD.
then we are compelled to admit that there must be a God, the next
question is, Has He spoken to us?
I believe that the answer is a
resounding YES! The Bible claims to be a message from the one who
calls Himself “The Author of Life” the one who “made all
things” and “existed before all things” This is speaking of
The Bible has the facts to back up it’s claim to be
from a being who is outside of time and space. The Bible is
absolutely unique in the area of evidence to back up it’s claims.
God said in the Old Testament that he would prove to us who He is by
telling us what was going to happen before it happens and then when
it comes to pass without fail then we would know who it is who was
speaking through the Prophets.
Fulfilled prophecy is the fingerprint
of God upon the Bible as His revelation to us. In the Bible we find
answers to the questions that I began with. People today are
searching everywhere for a message from an extraterrestrial being out
somewhere, Ironically that message sits right on the shelf in most
homes , unread. If you would like to know the God who made you and
loves you , read the Gospel of John, The book of Acts & the book
of Romans and then the rest of the Bible. There is more than enough
evidence to convince any honest person that God not only exists, but
that He has also spoken to us in the Bible.
However there will never
be enough evidence to convince the person who has already made up his
mind before he even examines the evidence.
men still seek Him!
