You would have to be a fool to believe that! And yet there is so much in this world that people believe without delving into the facts for themselves. April 1st has long been celebrated as April Fool's Day.
The day was also called All Fools’ Day, and has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures; its exact origins remain a mystery. Some historians speculate April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582. But it is no mystery that this world is filled with millions of fool's!
Are you a fool for what this world is trying to convince you of?
I have worked in the health field for twenty years. To me the study of anatomy and physiology is amazing. The human body is a magnificent and complex thing when studied microscopically.
“The simplest living cell is intricate beyond imagining…human brains seem ill-suited to grasp such multi-dimensional complexity.”--Dr. Robert Hazen
Dr. Michael Denton: “each is a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of elegantly designed pieces of molecular machinery…far more complicated than any machinery built by man and without parallel in the non-living world.”
Perhaps it is best summed up by Ilya Prigogine, winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1977: “But let us have no illusions… [we are still] unable to grasp the extreme complexity of the simplest of organisms.”
There is no scientist in the world today that would have the chutzpah to claim that he or she knows how life began. Dr. Stuart Kauffman: “Anyone who tells you that he or she knows how life started on the Earth 3.5 billion years ago, is a fool or a knave.”
In other words, these scientists have made it incontrovertibly clear that all the steps that are necessary for the emergence of life require the conscious and direct involvement of an active, guiding, and highly intelligent force. They are no fools.
God tells us in His Word, "A fool says in his heart there is no God." (Psalm 14:1) Why "in his heart?" Words are easy to spew out and can be said in haste with no real thought. Many know deep within that yes, there is a Creator, and yet they will deny it with their words. But when you believe in your heart, there is no God, you are a fool, an utter fool for rejecting the Creator.
I am sincerely sorry for their unbelief, for if they would not take the influence of the world, and look closely for themselves, they would see the fingerprints of God in all life.
For those who arrogantly declare God does not exist and spew anger with any mention of His Name, the Scriptures declare all people everywhere will one day confess that indeed there is a God.
Soon— and I think very soon,the time will come when “at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11).
Both the believer and unbeliever will acknowledge not only the existence of God, but also His preeminence over all of creation, including their soul. Angels, demons, the saved and the lost/fools, all creation—will confess Jesus Christ if Lord, and He is real.
