The most complex computer is child’s play compared to the least of God’s creations. The most powerful electron microscope exceeds the limits of imagination of most men who walked the earth in any age. Examine one grain of sand with this fantastic machine and the extent of God’s creativity is revealed in something so small we can’t see it with normal sight.
The featured image that begins this post is that of sand under an electron microscope. It looks like a combination of art glass, pottery, sea shells, and sports an amazing palette of color. Not bad for simple sand, eh?
Did inventors descend from rocks or goo?
Mankind is increasingly enamored of its ability to think, invent, reproduce, critique, and judge. This amazing intellectual capacity of which humanity is so proud is the very one that produced the majority theory that your great-great-great… grandfather might have been that very grain of sand. Or maybe a rock. Wonder which side of the family produced the inventors – the sand or the rock? Or maybe primordial goo?

Arrogance and “scholarship” aside, the thought that rational people could believe evolutional fantasy would be amusing if not for the bigger picture. Sadly, the self-importance that enthusiastically endorses the theory that man evolved from nothing is the same that denies the existence of the Creator.
God created the heavens and the earth, the seas and the land, and all that swims, flies, crawls, or walks in or on the same. But God did not create machines. Men did.
Have you ever wondered why humans tend to take credit for the capacity to think, invent, reproduce, critique, and judge? Mankind is quite proud of its assumed place at the top of the terrestrial food chain, the supposed superiority over animals, and the conquest of the heavens and the deeps.
Has mankind really achieved ANYTHING of importance?
Have you ever seen a man fly unassisted? Has any man migrated from continent to continent for a century without setting foot on land? How many have played the back nine on Saturn? How many have used their great intellect to create a descendant from a rock?
It seems like mankind really hasn’t done much of note in the past five thousand years except make more mankind and create machines that allow us to examine and speculate on what we didn’t invent.
- Men have always traveled. Now they travel faster.
- Men have always made music. Now they make it louder.
- Men have always told stories about demons and devils. Now they think such evils are nothing but the product of imagination.
- Men used to live for hundreds of years, now they’re lucky to make 80.
- Men used to enjoy ease and peace in the creation. Now they are chained to small electronic devices from which escape seems impossible.
Men used to mate with women to produce offspring. Is it any wonder that children are now the product of laboratories and parented by whatever the legislature deems politically correct? After all, these same individuals tend to believe that they are the descendants of gooey rocks.
Actually, rocks may be smarter. They’re not conflicted about being rocks. Some are gold, some are silver, and some are moon rocks. Each is content to be what it is.
Speaking of the various types of rocks, I wonder if some of these intellectual giants think that intelligence and other attributes of mankind vary based upon the type of rock he descended from. If your great-granddaddy was gold ore does that make you better than the guy next door whose ancestor was nothing but plain ol’ river rock?
Is your color important or distinctive?
Are the races the produce of different colors of goo? Perhaps there was tan goo, brown goo, saffron goo, crimson goo, and perhaps green goo that explains the origin of extraterrestrial aliens?
Since we’re discussing colors, did you take a really good look at the image of sand magnified by the electron microscope? Consider the variety of shape, size, texture, and COLOR.
Mankind can’t even catalog the extent of variation in sand. Makes you wonder why mankind feels quite so superior. Animals are quite familiar with sand. They use it for nests, warmth, cushion, moisture, and protection.
How could anyone feel superior if they believe they came from sand or goo of any color? Mankind has not changed one bit in recorded history – or even unrecorded history. Makes you wonder how a rock turned into a rock star? We’re still selfish and bipedal, curious and contrary, fragile and imaginative, vindictive and artistic.
But only recently have we denied the Creator. Humans prior to the 19th century weren’t conflicted on that point. What changed?
Oh, yes. Now mankind is more certain of its superiority – and that we descended from rocks. Makes you wonder doesn’t it? The more arrogant we become the less we try to explain the wonders and complexities of sand…
Machines and Evolution – both creations of mankind
God didn’t create machines, men did. Why?
I suggest that men couldn’t begin to understand the most basic elements of God’s creation so figured he needed to do something of importance. The mighty works of man do nothing but manipulate the elements God created. It’s like a kid playing with a set of LEGOS. The kid can’t make a LEGO but he can snap ‘em together every which way and think he did something special.
The History of Creation
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.
Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas.
Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself.
Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth
Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind.
Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind.”
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Understanding color under electron microscope magnification may still be unsolved. Let’s hope we can refine our own creations since we can’t completely understand, much less exceed, those of the Creator.
