I enjoy all your articles disproving evolution, but one question plagues me. I know all these animals and the heavens and earth were created by God, but who created God? G. A., Washington
The presence of matter and energy demands a Creator. The disintegration of radioactive materials, the retreating galaxies and stars, the constant loss of useful heat energy in the universe absolutely prove that the universe is not eternal! It had to have a beginning — it had to be created. Scientists don't know how the universe got here. Yet it IS here! Matter and energy exist! The law of the conservation of matter and energy, accepted by scientists as fact, clearly states, "Matter and energy, as interchangeable entities, cannot be created or destroyed by any means known to science." Science doesn't have the answer! A mere man cannot create a world — not even a mountain, nor yet a tree upon it. No angel created any of these marvelous things, much less the vast universe. Consider the greatness of the starry host spread out without boundary throughout the heavens. Only a Being vastly greater than the universe itself — greater in power and might than all the energy in the entire universe — could have created all that is. The Mind so great as to create the earth and the heavenly host and all life has to be eternal. The Mind that thought it all out — the Mind that sustains the universe — is the Eternal God — the Yahweh of your Bible. The very name Yahweh means Eternal. God reveals that He has always existed — and always will.
