Genesis
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."

The
Complexity and Diversity of the Created Order:

1                   
The
birds navigate by the stars when migrating.

2                   
Moths
have two ears

3                   
The
bombardier beetle has two chemicals in his little body.

4                   
There
are over 10 million different species of insects.

5                   
There
are 2500 kinds of ants.

6                   
There
are five billion birds in America

7                   
Mallard
ducks can fly 60 miles an hour.

8                   
The
eagles can fly ____100__ an hour

 

Well, let’s talk about the EARTH

1.     
The
earth is ___25__miles in circumference.

2.     
The
earth weighs __six septillion, five-hundred and eighty-six, six trillion tons.

3.     
The
earth spins at  __1000____ miles an hour
with perfect balance

4.     
The
earth is moving through space around the sun at __1000____ miles a minute.

5.     
The
earth is moving in an orbit of __580 million_ miles.

a.      
This
is at a perfect angle set to create the seasons which provide all the crops,
which feed us.

You
cannot see an ATOM. It takes _three__
atoms to make up one water molecule.  How
many molecules in a drop of water? ___three atoms make up one water molecule_.

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.

Do you
know what we are talking about when we say
“The Wheel of Life?”

Ø 
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.

Ø 
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
