LOOKING AT DAY FIVE IN THE CREATION
of Joy Baptist Church
2009 Part One
1:20-23 tells us:
The amazing diversity and
complexity of the created order speaks to me of the immensity of God’s
intelligence and God’s power, which is the reason for this study anyway.
Remember Carl Sagan? He died at 62 years old in 1996.
Sagan wrote frequently about religion and the relationship between religion and science,
expressing his skepticism about the conventional conceptualization of God as a sapient being.
Sagan once stated, for instance, that:
The idea that God is an oversized white male
with a flowing beard, who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow
is ludicrous. But if by ‘God’ one means the set of physical
laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God
is emotionally unsatisfying … it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."

If you were to squeeze all the
space out of a person, how much volume do you think he’d occupy? Lost on the head
of pen. One-hundred millionth of a cubic inch.
know what we are talking about when we say
“The Wheel of Life?”
The enzyme ATP syntheses. Okay: The common “energy currency” of cells. In every cell in every living thing has
thousands of motors. These little motor
have to reproduce your entire body
weight _24 hours.
These little machines are producing with every turn of the
wheel at some _100 revolutions per
second, they are producing the necessary energy cycle to keep you alive and
keep you functioning. Pslams 139:14
