The Design in the Nature
The fact that living things have perfectly designed
forms proves that they could never have originated by chance. The
design in nature is a clear sign of creation.
What would you think if you went out trekking
in the depths of a thick forest and ran across a latest-model car
among the trees? Would you think that various elements in the forest
had come together by chance over millions of years and produced
such a vehicle? All the raw materials making up the car are obtained
from iron, plastic, rubber, earth or its by-products, but would
this fact lead you to think that these materials had come together
"by chance" and had, by themselves, manufactured such
Without doubt, anyone with a sound mind would
know that the car was the product of an intelligent design, that
is, it was factory-made, and would wonder what it was doing there
in the middle of a jungle. The sudden origination of a complex structure
in a complete form out of the blue shows that it is made by an intelligent
is not the head of a snake but the tail of a caterpillar!
In a moment of danger, the caterpillar puffs up its tail which
is designed to look exactly like a snake's head and intimidates
PERFECT HUNTER: THE VENUS' FLYTRAP
A carnivorous plant, the Venus' Flytrap, is a perfect hunter
that swiftly catches the flies landing on it. It is impossible
for this trap system working with electric signals to be the
work of coincidence or a gradual developmental process. The
perfect design of the Venus' flytrap is one of the numerous
signs of creation.
This fish is created with a very interesting hunting system.
It keeps this system undisclosed under normal conditions.
it sees its prey, it opens its upper fin. This fin is designed
just like a small fish down to its smallest details.
The prey, lured by the fake
fish, draws near and suddenly falls a victim to it.
The example of the car also holds true for living
things. In fact, the design in life is too striking to be compared
to that in a car. The cell, the basic unit of life, is far more
complex than any man-made technological product. Moreover, this
irreducibly complex organism must have emerged suddenly and fully
BONE AND THE EIFFEL TOWER
Examples of design in nature often become a source of
inspiration for technological designs. An example is the
spongy structure of the human bone furnished with small
tendons, which inspired the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris.
This structure is responsible for the strength, elasticity,
and lightness of bones. The same properties also exist in
the Eiffel Tower, though not as effectively as in bones.
Therefore, it is crystal clear that all living
things are the work of a superior "design". To put it
more clearly, there is no doubt that all creatures are created by
In the face of this explicit truth, evolutionists
resort to a single concept: "chance". By believing that
pure chance can produce perfect designs, evolutionists cross the
bounds of reason and science. The famous zoologist Pierre Grassé,
the former president of the French Academy of Sciences, makes his
point about the logic of "chance", which is the backbone
The opportune appearance of mutations permitting
animals and plants to meet their needs seems hard to believe. Yet
the Darwinian theory is even more demanding: A single plant, a single
animal would require thousands and thousands of lucky, appropriate
events. Thus, miracles would become the rule: events with an infinitesimal
probability could not fail to occur… There is no law against daydreaming,
but science must not indulge in it.12
THE DESIGN IN OUR HANDS
human hand has a perfect design that gives us ideal movement
ability. Each one of the 27 small bones making up the hand
is positioned properly with a certain engineering calculation.
The muscles that help us to move our fingers are located in
our lower arms so as not to make our hands clumsy. These muscles
are connected by strong tendons to three small bones in our
there is a special bracelet-like tissue in our wrists that
fastens all these tendons. The hand has such a perfect design
that no "robot hand" produced by modern technology has been
able to imitate the abilities of the hand.
Grassé summarises what the concept of "coincidence"
means for evolutionists: "...Chance becomes a sort of providence,
which, under the cover of atheism, is not named but which is secretly
This is the type of superstition that underlies
